Is it a secret that I'm secretly very in love with Jasmine and her blog? If not... then let it be known world that I am. I don't really know how it began but I've known of Jasmine since before she won the Chictopia 10 contest to go to New York a couple years back and it was a real treat when I found her blog. We didn't become friends for a while but now I can honestly say she's one of my favorite people in the world, even if we haven't actually "met" before. We've exchanged so many long emails and I've pretty much poured my heart out to her on several occasions about everything. She always, always reads and responds to my long emails and it's the best feeling in the world to feel like I have a pal out there that will always listen to me. Plus, she's really good at giving amazing advice!! Her blog is also flawless and a constant source of inspiration for myself. She's a sweet girl with an amazing wardrobe. I don't think anyone could read her blog and not adore her within three seconds! :)

A few weeks back when I was in Minnesota, I tweeted about falling in love with Francesca's Collections. I had been having an unlucky day shopping until I walked into Francesca's and this dress was the first thing I saw. They only had one small left and I grabbed it. It was one of those items that I knew I wasn't going to walk out of the store without. I'm obsessed with Francesca's now. My roommate lives within five minutes of one! I'm so jealous! At the same time, Jasmine tweeted about wanting an elephant print dress and I freaked the heck out! I had purchased an elephant print dress at Francesca's that very day! As fate would have it, we were crushing on the same exact dress. She bought it a few days later and of course, we had to do a joint post. I love that we both used mustard yellow belts in styling it! I also love that hers feels so 'spring-y' being that she lives in California while mine feels, well, very 'Montana'. It's freezing here and if my pictures don't show that well enough, just know that I'm sitting in bed with a scarf on, wool socks, and three blankets. I guess that just means you get both seasonal stylings of this dress!

First of all I really cannot get over how gorgeous your hair is. I JUST LOVE IT. Agh. Second of all, I can see why both of you fell in love with that dress because it is positively adorable and you both look flawless. I really like that sweater, too! I love how the internet allows us to make such fantastic friends even when we've never actually met them in person. It's wonderful.

This dress is so cute! I'm really loving printed dresses lately (other than my usual love of florals haha). Shame we dont have francescas in the UK though.

That dress is adorable! No wonder both of you were lusting after it. You've both styled it so beautifully.

I've liked Francesca's Collection for a while, but the past couple weeks I've just fallen in love with that place! I think part of it is that it's one of the only stores I can actually dive to, and it's in a town that I really like. <3 So much fun.

Beautifully Pure said...

P.S. I love how both you styled it! So fun to see the spring vs. winter look! :D
