Dress- Smart Set; Jewellery- Sears; Bag & Shoes- Thrifted; Nail Polish- Mist by Joe Fresh

Picky= fussy about food, or selective with people (

I'm quite a picky eater, which when you're already a veggie, limits your meal options drastically.  Mushrooms, shredded coconut, cantaloupe, eggplant and figs are just some of the items on my yuck list.  

Speaking of picky, I just bought this dress yesterday and already it has various picks and snags in the fabric, compliments of my cute but deadly bracelet.  According to e-How, I can simply pull the thread to the inside of the dress, tie in a small knot and apply clear nail polish to the thread to prevent further fraying.  (I also use clear nail polish on the inside band of my cheap cocktail rings to prevent my fingers from turning green, it's a quick and easy solution!)

Sicky= a way of speaking to indicate sickness in a cute way (

I'm starting to come down with something, I spent the entire day sneezing, blowing my nose and coughing so am hoping to fend it off with some organic lemon tea and lots of sleep.

{P.S. I overexposed these photos because it showed the colours in the outfit better, I swear I'm not quite this vampire-esque in person...although then again maybe I am-referring to previous outfit photos, dang blasted Irish/Scottish/British mix!}


  1. Really beautiful outfit - blue is such a great color on you. I love the bright, statement accessories. Sorry to hear that you might be coming down with something - get better soon!


  2. coconut is the worst food ever
    i don't like it in any form or fashion
    love that dress and man, i hate when a bracelet picks apart an outfit
    the necklace is fab too

  3. I hope you feel better soon - and I'm going to try that nail polish trick on rings, I've never heard of that before!

  4. emily, that color is a fave of mine. it looks wonderful on you. boo about the snags though. i also like your fringed purse. i'm a picky eater too. sorry you're getting sick. : (i really am that vampire pale though. ;)

  5. The dress is seriously perfect for you. Really love the color & the cut! Also a lot of the things on your 'yuck list' are my favorite foods. One my my best friends is a veggie, and we have the EXACT opposite taste and always end ordering plain cheese pizza when we go out.

  6. Ohh, that dress is so pretty!
    I hope whatever you are feeling passes quickly, its terrible to be sick in the spring!
    Chic on the Cheap

  7. I like the colour of your brand-new dress and I also like how you've picked the jewellery which goes so well with that dress. nice harmony between blue'ish/green'ish shades :)

  8. This dress is so cute! Bummer that it was snagged on your bracelet - hopefully the trick you read will work! Also bummer about getting sick. I'm not sick, but I'm dealing with allergies which are equally yucky! Feel better!

  9. Tea and sleep...there's nothing those 2 things can't fix. Take care of yourself and feel better soon!

    Cantaloupe is the worst melon EVER! I always pick it out of fruit salad.

    Have a great weekend! :)

  10. awwwwwwww I hope you get better soon. Im a bit sicky, too. It totally SUCKS. What doesn't suck is your beautiful dress! So gorgeous, Emily!

  11. I am sicky too! But it's allergies.
    Loving that colour dress, just bought a turquoise top myself! That and coral.

  12. Aww, I hope you ward it off and feel better soon! =( Despite not feeling well, the color of that dress looks beautiful on you!

  13. Really digging this blue dress, it's absolutely gorgeous!!!

  14. Did not know about the cocktail ring/nail polish trick; thanks for the tip!
    Do you know how to avoid cheap metal turning bronze?


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
