Jockey for Position

These photos were taken in between one of the crazy rain storms we’ve had the last couple weeks, hence the moody skies and bright green, fluffy grass that you rarely see at our desert home. We had our wettest day on record and since this city isn’t exactly built for lots of rain, we had flooded freeways, overflowing swimming pools, and cancelled schools.

I’m not complaining- we obviously can use the rain around here, and the cooler temps gave me an opportunity to bust out this horse & jockey print tunic dress from Joules. One handy thing about measuring in at 5’4″ is that a longer tunic can be an official dress, and when I dress has sleeves I like the hem to be on the shorter side. It just feels more balanced for me. I may not be able to reach the top shelf of the cupboards, but the pros and cons even out :)

I’m not one for actual horse races, but I do really dig this preppy spin on a novelty print!

    I love the spin you took on this dress by giving it your own touches like the scarf (which I totally thought was part of the dress at first) and the darling piano socks. I also am insanely jealous that you can pull of tunics as dresses. I have quite the behind and it never allows me to work short dresses even at being not that tall at 5’6″. Im always worried about dresses being too short on me.

      Well you’re lucky because I always feel like 5’6″ would be the perfect height! I always feel best when I have shoes that add 2″ :)

    Before I do anything, I need to freak out about your socks. YOU FIND THE CUTEST THINGS. K, now that that’s out of the way. I envy your shortness at moments like this- most mini dresses look like regular shirts on me. It’s maddening. And love love love how you added the scarf to this look- you seriously have a knack of combining patterns seamlessly.

    As a lover of novelty prints, naturally I LOVE your dress. Also, those piano socks are to die for. I had to show my sister (she is an avid pianist). Looking super lovely!

    Gosh – really swooning this outfit Lisa. I don’t know which I love more – the horse print or the piano socks. Can’t believe you found those beauts at Buffalo Exchange. Now I want to go on the hunt for similar ones myself :-)

    There’s so much to love about this. The print on the dress; the polka dot bow, those amazing socks and the shoes. Those shoes. <3
