Collar Life

 Peter Pan collar dress: Zara, Camel colored coat: H&M (old), Boots: Asos, Accessories: Karen Walker Number One sunglasses, Alexis Bittar necklace, Michael Kors watch, ily couture bracelet, Loeffler Randall Rider bag

I have become rather obsessed with the Peter Pan collar detail. When I see the detail on tops and dresses, I kind of go crazy. I just adore it! I'm not sure where this obsession came from. It's not like I haven't seen it before. But, I just can't help but feel a bit more sophisticated and dare I say European chic? 

When I saw this Zara dress, I knew I had to own it. I love the ease of the dress. The material is a bit thin for the colder weather but it's easy enough to layer with. I wore this outfit to meet my friend to view The Art of Bulgari exhibit at the de Young museum. You may have seen my IG post where I posted a photo of the entrance of the exhibit. FYI, I was immediately told by security to not take anymore photos. On a side note, I'm aware people are not allowed to take photos of exhibitions but usually entry photos are allowed. I suppose I just met a rather strict security host. C'est la vie!

    I LOVEEEE the polka dots! I really love this look, I haven't tried any peter pan collar styles, this is making me think other wise now lol! I really need to get one of those chain link bracelets already, I obviously love them! haha.
