after spending last week in warm and sunny los angeles, i was kind of dreading my arrival back home in the bay area, anticipating a very chilly reception upon my return. but to my surprise, i woke up yesterday morning to the most gloriously (albeit unseasonably) warm weather in oakland. it was so hot that i decided to pretend that i was on summer vacation, and threw on this ridiculously cute tropical print dress to celebrate. perhaps this has something to do with the fact that i just got the film developed from my hawaiian vacation back in july, and i was feeling a bit nostalgic. and i suppose the stars aligned on this opportunity, considering that i bought this dress last week on a whim, wondering how many months it would be until i would actually have the chance to wear it!
