remembering what sun feels like

This is how a Washington girl does Arizona in December: a summer dress + a winter scarf. Because it's confusing to gain 25+ degrees within a day's travel, and one doesn't quite know what to do with herself. So please excuse my seasonally dysfunctional outfit...it just happened. Not that I'm complaining about the weather--I'd almost forgotten what WARM sunlight feels like! My bones started thawing immediately, only to freeze again when we flew back into rainy Seattle. 
I wore this outfit for dinner + shopping + a movie, which I'll probably say a few times, because the trip was full of it! This particular night was sushi at Blue Wasabi, which is so hip that even the wasabi is, in fact, blue, and the movie Young Adult (which I do not recommend). I've honestly never eaten so much good food as I did on our trip...I was consistently full. Yet never stopped eating. Blame it on the alcohol holidays. 

dress: Forever 21 (borrowed from sister), belt & flats: Target, scarf: garden and sea, jacket: UO

What a beautiful dress! I'm glad it's so sunny and warm there (here it's very cold but sunny indeed). And I actually love the outfit, even if it's "seasonally dysfuncional", haha ^^

The detailing on the back of that dress is so beautiful and that scarf is the perfect color.

hahah I knew everyone I see around the college campus must be from colder places! It definitely gets nice and warm during the days but I still need a light jacket at least. You look so adorable though, love the summer dress, scarf combo. Glad you had a great time in my home state : )
