It sure does feel good to wear a breezy dress when it’s 107 degrees outside and with 100% humidity!

The necklace and bag are new acquisitions for me, from one of my favorite places to shop online, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve been saving up for the Rocco bag for some time now and finally it made its way into my eager hands. The bag is heavy, but appropriately so – you feel the weight of the metal studs and the careful craftsmanship of a bag that you know will stand the test of time.

Meanwhile, I will try not to cringe at the exceedingly annoying fact that one part of my necklace decided to hide under the collar of my dress. Anyone else as OCPD as I am?

    I have major OCPD issues and am not afraid to admit it! I’ve been known to make my hubby retake an entire set of pictures for such reasons – haha! Love that necklace and your bag is to die for…great purchases!! πŸ™‚

    Love the bag! The leather looks like it’s so soft and yummy smelling (if that makes any sense!?). House of Harlow necklace is too cool….unfortunately I am OCD about that stuff too. Always pretty pics regardless!!

    love the belt and bag. Perfectly chosen accessories.

    The bag is fab, I love it and it looks so well made. I feel you on the necklace, its beautiful and it needs to be shown. I just started getting on the spike, collar and cresent type of necklaces when I purchased some for my store (http://www.chiccoutureonline.com/accessories/). They really make any outfit special.

    AWESOME look!! The half-exposed necklace looks even more edgy. Honestly I thought you had done that purposefully!! Own it! XX ~ E

    Your hair looks beautiful! Man, if it were 100% humidity here (in Kentucky), I’d look like Sideshow Bob. Your hair stays so sleek and smooth!

    Really like how you spiced up a sweet & simple dress with that gorgeous necklace and studded bag. πŸ™‚

    Loving your bag Kristina! And I would hope that all of us in medicine have just a bit of OCPD πŸ˜‰ Hope 1st year of anesthesiology residency is going well!

    Girl, I love your style and I love your blog! πŸ™‚ Totes drooling over your new bag. I last saw that coveted bag in Neiman’s last month, but resisted the urge to buy. heehe.
    Hope you have a great rest of your week!

    xx Love & Aloha

    I love this look! You look fab!

  17. 08.09.2012 / 10:54 am

    Your necklace carries the outfit! It matches perfectly to your dress! A very adorable accessory I would say!

  18. 08.09.2012 / 3:34 pm

    That bag & necklace pull the whole outfit together, very nice. & I agree when it goes past 90 there should be a no pants rule & dresses are required.

  19. 08.09.2012 / 6:18 pm

    love the A.Wang bag!! You look gorgeous!

  20. 08.10.2012 / 4:30 am

    That bag is AMAZING! I love the metal stud detail! It adds such an amazing funky edge to any outfit and I love the edge it adds to your feminine look. πŸ™‚

  21. 08.10.2012 / 11:54 am

    DYING over that bag! and the necklace is awesome as well! Good choices!!Did you get a new glossybox yet?? I loved your video when you opened the last one! : )

  22. 08.11.2012 / 1:51 pm

    This outfit is beautiful! I absolutely love that necklace.

  23. 08.11.2012 / 5:35 pm

    LOL, the necklace was the first thing I noticed and I was surprised that you hadn’t insist on re-taking the pictures… but, life isn’t perfect, so why should photos be perfect?Keep cool in the heat!

  24. 08.12.2012 / 11:46 am

    That bag is divine! I have been trying to track down Alexander Wang’s Rafael bag in dalmation print for ever, but it seems to be sold out everywhere πŸ™

  25. 08.12.2012 / 2:18 pm

    I love that House of Harlow necklace. I saw it at Nordstrom just the other day. You look fabulous as always xoxo

  26. 08.14.2012 / 2:54 am

    You look fab as usual! I love how you added a little sparkle to your look with the belt.

  27. 08.18.2012 / 1:07 am

    Yay congrats on the new bag and the necklace; both gorgeous! I hate when that happens with my necklaces during photos… so frustrating. haha. The life of a blogger. πŸ™‚

  28. […] or just completely natural. Since I got this glorious bag, I find myself living on the edgier side (one, two). Of course, the necklace also adds to the drama. I have been wearing both absolutely non-stop […]
