Let's address my obsession for scalloped everything before we address my problem with ombre. My name is Kristen and I love scalloped hems, it's the perfect detail for anything, I think. AdoreMe caters to your style through a short survey and personalizes a showroom for you. They sent me this scalloped set that's beautiful and functional enough for everyday wear. Come on, guys. Say it with me - scalloped everything!

My second problem is ombre. I live it, breath it, love it. It was 87 degrees in New York City and to celebrate - I broke out the prettiest dress that I had, it was just sitting in my closet waiting for spring to happen. With the tags still on, I snipped them off and slipped this baby on. 
This easily became one of my favorite dresses of all time.

  16. This Zara dress is beautiful on you! I've had my eye on this...I definitely would have put this in my ombre picks last week, but it wasn't on Zara.com anymore. This dress definitely went fast. I love how you kept accessories to the minimum (super cute cross bracelet!) to really focus on the dress.  I'm sure I couldn't pull this off as nice as you did :) 

    BTW I love your apartment! Makes me want to peek more haha

    and thank you for commenting on my post <3 I love your style, I'm definitely following you!
