Orange County blogger Carrie Bradshaw Lied.

When I tried this dress on I thought, “if only I’d had this dress the year I was getting married!” This is one of those feminine, ladylike and polished pieces that can be such a versatile addition to your closet.  Worn to luncheons, work, your own bridal showers (if you’re the bride), cocktail events – all you need is to alternate a few accessories, and it can work for almost any occasion.

Those of you who have been reading CBL for years (yes, this blog has actually been around for five years… I can hardly believe it and feel as though any of you who have been reading for the long-haul deserve a serious virtual-web-hug from me!) may remember hearing me preach that a white blazer is a closet staple. I actually wear my white blazer so much more than my black one.  I think it looks crisp and stands out so much more than your standard black blazer!

And I’m still obsessed with my Anne Klein Fashion Fit watch (first shared here). I’ve discovered how stationary I am during the day and have really been trying to walk more, even if it just means taking the longer route in the office to get a cup of coffee or parking a little further away.  I’ve also been wearing the lightweight black band (the watch comes with two band options which I love) when I sleep so it tracks how much deep sleep I’m getting… and now I’m turning into Christian by being obsessed with monitoring how much good sleep I get each night. Have any of you felt like this with your sleep monitoring watch, bracelet or app? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

  1. Adore this dress! You look so ladylike and polished. And i can see it being styled so many different ways! Congrats on blogging for five years- that’s amazing!



  2. I love this!!! Seriously I read this post in my email this morning right when I woke up. I always try and wait until I get on my computer but I just couldn’t. The minute I saw this dress I was absolutely captivated. It is so so so beautiful and I love how you styled it! Plus, that little fur puff is like the cutest thing ever!!! haha. I can’t get enough of stuff like that.

  3. Stumbled across your blog while looking into Anne Klein’s fashion fit watches. You have some really cute posts! Noticed you only posted about the watch two times though, back in May. Are you still wearing it often? Still loving it? Thanks!!
