Outfit: Comedy of Errors

So in the past week I managed to lock myself and Thomas out of the gatehouse (we really do need to make a copy of our key) and get myself locked into Thomas's parent's house. The latter situation ended with me climbing out of a window. The whole week felt like a comedy of errors. There's so much to be done that a few rather obvious details slip through the cracks. Thankfully there's usually an escape route when you feel trapped and pretty clothes to put on so you can feel a bit dignified when people are laughing at your window-climbing antics. After you fall down (or lock yourself somewhere) you have to dust yourself off, put on some red lipstick and dare the world to trip you again.
As much as I love wearing red, navy dresses tend to be my default when it comes to attending a wedding or heading to church. It's less flashy, but still really pretty and a prefect backdrop for interesting accessories or details. This little navy number from Hello Holiday is definitely going to become a default--I love the shape, the bow detail in the back (which still manages to cover my tattoos!), and the soft sheen of the fabric. It's the workhorse dress in your closet that always gets the job done, but is far from dull.

Outfit details:
old tights
Seychelles heels (old)



  1. that's crazy about getting locked out and then inside! you look so adorable in this dress and coat!


  2. I've definitely been known for locking myself out of my house various times, so you're not alone! I'm pretty sure that my neighbors have a good laugh every time they see me climb in through a window. That Hello Holiday dress is gorgeous and the style is so classic. I really love the beautiful bow on the back.

  3. I'm a really bad one for locking myself out the house. Its got to the point where my neighbor gets the spare key ready when she sees me coming

    I love your dress, its wonderful


  4. Oh dear, I hope you don't get locked in/out again haha! Love the dress, you must have had to take these pics quite quickly because I imagine it was quite cold, bare arms! You're so brave!

  5. Love the outfit! So simple, yet o fashionable!
    You are a true inspiration!

  6. Your dress is so pretty, I love the details

  7. Love the dress!

    Now, my dear friend ... I do think we need the whole 'exclusive' on how you locked yourself IN! I imagine it's somewhat similar to my first visit (as a young adult) to a friend's parents house, which was much larger than my own, and - yeahh, i got lost inside the house and had to call for help ;)

  8. @Jeannee Waseck, it was just a busy day & everyone was going somewhere & they left me behind to do a bit of work on my computer/play with Thomas's family's new puppy BUT the doors only unlock with a key--they're a type of deadlock I guess. I don't think they realized the doors were all locked & all the keys were out with people. So when I wanted to get out I found myself stuck, but I didn't really want to be trapped inside all afternoon hence the window climbing.

  9. that hairdo is so gorgeous!
