Sunday Best

I tend to wear yoga pants like, a lot.

But I can safely say I'm equally at home in a silk dress, even if it's just for an impromptu stroll through the South End with The Boston Fashionista, who snapped these shots. Although I'm just real-estate gawking and stoop-sitting this weekend, I can't wait to take this dress out for a summer wedding, baby shower, or rooftop cocktail party.

I dressed it down with handcrafted CalaXini abarcas sandals, a line of super-buttery leather flats that are handcrafted in Menorca. They were originally designed for farmers on the Mediterranean island, where the land is dry and hard, so there's plenty of sole-support for stomping around the brick-lined South End. (Yes, I know that's not quite the same thing.)

The white leather backpack, dubbed "Wolfepack", from local designer DeWolfe also added a carefree element to the look and really made the frock's white stripes pop. (Read more about the about the bags here.)
