OOTD & FOTD: Lovely Blues

It's been raining in Vancouver for, oh, about the past week and a bit so this morning I made the decision to wear a dress. Not just any dress but one of my long maxi dresses (strapless) to make me feel like I was in Mexico or at least somewhere that isn't raining. And....It totally worked!!! Not only did the rain break for a bit but I paired it with my awesome new aviators and got so many compliments.

Here's the dress:

I love this dress because it was inexpensive ($25 Old Navy last year) and is extremely forgiving, if you know what I mean.

Man, this is a crap picture. Either way, you can sort of see the blue I used on my eyes.

This picture is much better. ( I, of course, blame poor lighting...ha) I, as usual, have my shimmer all-over glow going on as well as a light coral lip.
