It's a 5 O'Clock World...

As much as I'd love to stay home and sew all day, I get up every weekday and drag myself into a cubicle instead.  A side effect of traveling to wonderful places, I suppose--actually paying for these trips! ;)

I've had this maxi dress for years, and I'm so glad this look is coming back.  So easy for summer--and with a little jacket, totally work-appropriate and infinitely more comfortable than jeans on these sweaty glow-inducing Texas days!

This bag was a vintage find from a shop in Sweden.  I think I'm liking the messenger bag look again...

The necklace is by M Squared Jewelry here in Austin!  There's a long story about this, but I'll save that for another time. 

P.S.  Are any of you on Pinterest?  If not, I highly recommend it!  You can check out my Pinterest Boards here.
