Mocha (OOTD)

The last time I was in my local Anthro, I saw an outfit styling, that was basically the Atrament Maxi paired with the Hyperbole Pullover - and I loved the way it looked. Back at home, I remembered that I have a black maxi dress, and a couple crocheted sweaters, so decided to see if I could put something similar together. Here's what I came up with:

Sweater: Crocheted Cardigan, Banana Republic (old, similar here, here, and here)
Dress:   (similar here, here, and here)
Shoes: (unseen) Jacqui Sandals, Jessica Simpson 
Necklace: Zodiac Heirloom Pendant (similar here, here, and here)

Doesn't it make you think of coffee? Have I told you I love coffee? No? Well, I do. It is the sacred bean.

And when Kate saw me taking my OOTD photo, she wanted to get in on it too:

Top: Smocked shirt from Old Navy (winter 2010, similar here)
Dress: Next toddler's dress (similar here and here)

Thanks for reading!
