Happiness Is…

I’m back home stateside in Kentucky for a few weeks, and I’m so happy to be home! I’m living out of a suitcase, the weather has been a bit all over the place, and I’m not sure that I packed appropriately. But – despite all this – I promised myself I’d try to be better about posting “outfit quickies” this year, and since I have nothing more pressing to do right now than to drink iced tea (!!!) and and put ranch dressing on everything (!!!), here’s what I wore yesterday:


My favorite part of this outfit is (obviously!) the top half – can we just take a moment to appreciate this amazing necklace (a welcome home gift from my gorgeous momma) and the palm print on the dress?:




Monki never fails with amazing prints, and this necklace does its job – it makes a statement and it makes me feel happy. Another thing that makes me happy? The material of this dress means I never have to iron it. It’s a perfect, easy, fresh-from-the-suitcase outfit.



Jacket: Gap

Dress: Monki

Leggings: Primark

Boots: Primark (Possibly the best 13 pounds I’ve ever spent)

Necklace: Betsey Johnson

  1. Looking fabulous as always Dori!!
    Love the outfit and most of all your big smile !!
    Have a wonderful time back home. See you when you get back! Sending you love and hugs xoxo


  2. Your necklace is all that and a little more, I love it! Your Mum made a good choice 😉 I like the pattern on the dress too, it also seems to me like a dress that you can wear both casually and dressed up. Pairing it with the Jean jacket was a good idea too. Your first picture is my favorite because you smile so cheekily and it goes so well with the style!
    Enjoy home and have a nice day 🙂


    1. Thanks very much, Becky! Those are such lovely things to say! (And I’ll pass your sweet compliment on to my mom ☺️). You’re exactly right about the dress – it can definitely be dressed up or down. I have a tendency to dress things down a bit because my lifestyle is pretty casual, but I think I might have a go at trying to dress this one up a bit! Thank you for the inspiration! 💕
