maximum joy


h&m maxi dress, anthropologie heels (not pictured)

Today was a surprisingly nice day. The weather in the Bay Area hasn't really reflected the fact that it's mid-June so it was nice to see some sun for a change. It gave me a chance to wear this cute floral maxi dress from H&M that is actually long enough to pass my ankles. The watercolor print goes amazingly well with the fabric and length although the amount of boobies that were exposed could be a bit too much at times. I did get three or so compliments from random strangers in the city though!

BF took me out for the best dim sum ever at Yank Sing in SF which was then followed by some shopping (mostly him) and people watching at Coffee Bean. Pika (I'm just going to call him what I usually do IRL, haha) bought a striped hooded Sabatino top from Barney's that I picked out and a loose orange tee from H&M. I wish I could go shopping but for now I'll live it up through him. Although he did offer to buy me something if I'm nice to him...

(On another note, why am I always happiest when my day centers around good food? True fatty status?)

smile!
I'm going to go ahead and post food porn anyway. So delish!

And here's the cute little Pika who made this all possible.

Oops! Bra slip and something weird in my hair? Mmm, egg custard tart.

pinkpeas said...

I loooove that dress on you! I like how the watercolor flowy pattern is girly enough but not so overpowering where it could potentially look like flower throw up on other dresses I've seen.... ahh, bravo, you're adorable.

Sarah said...

crynarcissus said...

you look so lovely in the dress! I had the same one and though I don't 'fill it out' as well as you do (teehee) the good thing about this maxi is that it fits just about anyone. your food porn is making me sad because it's too late to run out and get some of my own :(

Hello!
I have desperately been looking for this beautiful dress of yours for about a year now (online and in stores etc), without any luck. I am wondering if you by any chance would be interested in selling this dress? I am willing to pay you a lot! Please contact me. You have no idea how much I would appreciate it. Thank you!
