Take My Breath Away

Sidenote: the title of this post has nothing to do with me or these photos (in fact, my titles rarely do); instead, Top Gun is playing in the background as I write this post and my favorite song from the film (Take My Breath Away) is playing and now I can’t stop humming it. Love.

I’m wearing a new dress recently scored in a Forever 21 shopping haul for our upcoming engagement photo shoot (can’t wait!). Also wearing from that haul, this sparkly gold belt…swoon. The sunglasses were sent to me by Guess and I just love their slight butterfly shape but they’re still classic enough to wear without getting sideways glances. Methinks they will replace the Ray-Bans currently in my bag for a good while.

    Beautiful dress, Kristina. I’m also IN LOVE with that clutch. I knew I should have gotten it when I had the chance 😉

    Now that’s one lovely dress! You look gorgeous. I’ve discovered your blog yesterday and I’m hooked!! How you manage to write such great and frequent posts besides your medical training is beyond me but I’ll be definitely stopping by regularly now. :)xoxo from Austria

    adorable clutch dear!

  12. 01.23.2012 / 11:50 am

    That dress is adorable! I wish I was shorter so I could wear the dresses from F21, but they all end up being an inappropriate length on me. 🙁 Love that song from Top Gun too, btw!!

  13. 01.23.2012 / 2:13 pm

    Thank you for the new tune in my ear! 🙂 I was really having enough of the Golden Girls theme already 😉

    I love your shoes!! The pointy toe and platform are so va-va but the color makes them completely “go with everything”!! The sequin clutch is pretty fab also!XOXO,

      Thanks V! You’re lookin’ at like 2nd day hair right there…couldn’t have run a comb through it if I wanted to. Something about the dry shampoo + curling iron + hairspray…

    That soft and slightly sheer dress looks fabulous on you, and does indeed “Take your (my) breath away”!!!!

  17. 01.23.2012 / 3:49 pm

    What a fun dress! Looks perfect with the gold belt & clutch!

  18. 01.23.2012 / 3:53 pm

    Love the tiny hearts on this dress, such a fun print! The gold belt is a perfect accessory for it!

  19. 01.23.2012 / 4:00 pm

    I love all things polka dotted! I like the nude shoe, I am looking for the perfect nude pump that is not six inches that I can sport with my spring looks.

    Such a cute and fun outfit! The belt and clutch combo work great together! I don’t go into Forever 21 very often because of the enormous amount of clothing they stock. I just get very overwhelmed when I go in, but I might have to venture in there soon because I love your dress and belt.
    I recently found your blog and I love it! I am a nursing student and because of the work load of school I was really contemplating starting a blog, but once I saw that a medical student could create a very successful blog I figured with some dedication I could too (or at least I could try)!

    Adorable dress and amazing wedges!
    P.S. Your online store looks amazing and I got so excited about your shoes… until I realized I would never be able to buy them, a bit too small for me! 🙁 haha

    That dress is so cute, I love how you’ve paired it with the belt/bag. So jealous, it will be months before I can wear a dress like that without tights and a sweater here in KY! Brrrrrrr!

  23. 01.23.2012 / 9:15 pm

    amazing shoes and perfect dress! ! ! I love the sequined clutch! <3

  24. 01.23.2012 / 10:05 pm

    Aww you look adorable and so pretty in these photos! Loved your new sunglasses and your beautiful dress. The gold belt does a really nice contrast.

      Oh Asma, you have made my week. Thank you, and my stubby little legs thank you too. 😉

  25. 01.23.2012 / 11:51 pm

    That is one of my favourite movies EVER!!!! As soon as I saw the title, the song started up in my head. Anyway, that dress is pure cuteness! Looks great with the belt!

    hi!Picking out your clothes for your engagement pictures must be so.much.fun! How exciting. Love this little chiffon heart number you’re wearing. And the shoes make an appearance again – they’re great.

  27. 01.24.2012 / 2:05 am

    Luv that you added a sequin clutch with this simple polka dot dress. Very pretty!

  28. 01.25.2012 / 5:39 am

    Love the butterfly shades!! I recently got a pair and love the shape =) it’s so flirty and girly yet not too overly out there style wise~

  29. 01.27.2012 / 9:42 pm

    Love the belt and bag. The dress is adorable.

  30. 01.29.2012 / 3:32 pm

    Cute outfit, I’m a fan of that dress. Are these photos pre or post spray tan? (Because your colour looks really good!)

  31. 01.31.2012 / 10:45 pm
