It's been a little too long since I last shared my fashion diaries with you. I've given up on keeping up with how many days I've been doing this, and now I just (try to) come up with clever titles for each outfit.
Hooray! Crochet!: One of my finds from the Salvation Army. Actually, Christina came to me with this one. I'm so happy she did, because it's perfect! Cute pearl buttons, lovely pattern -- I'm certain it was handmade. The string was originally threaded through the bottom of the vest, but I like it better cinching the waist.
I Would Fight Someone To Win You Back: Okay, not really. But maybe the thought crossed my mind for a split-second after I spotted this top at the Salvation Army, stepped aside to let someone down the aisle, and watched that person pick this top up and put it in her cart. But instead of getting all violent on her, I patiently stalked the return rack in front of the dressing room. My patience paid off, and now I have this cute vintage top!
Dots and Ruffles and Pockets, Oh My: Love, love, love this dress from Maurices! It fits so well, the material feels so good, and -- BONUS -- it has pockets! As every dress should.
Mamarazzi: I finally got my Mother's Day gift -- the opportunity to have a photo-day at the Arboretum while Mike toted the gear and the boy around.
Symmetry?! Who needs it?: Love this asymmetrical top from TJ Maxx! Asymmetry is kind of a big deal to me...my wedding dress had an asymmetrical waistline.
Okay, Now Tilt Your Head This Way...: I totally look like I just took my own high school yearbook pic! Yay me!
Bead-dazzling: This is the go-to beaded necklace in my collection.
Yes, I DID Take My Sweater Off. What An Astute Observation, Captain Obvious.: This pic got me my first (and so far only) slightly-mean comment on Instagram. Some teen thought she would be clever and point out that all I did was take off my sweater. Mmmmhmmm. That's because that's how I wore this outfit that day. Chilly morning = light sweater, warmer temps = no sweater. It's kind of how that whole "adapting to climate" thing works.
Bada-Bling: Teething bling. A wonderful gift from my friend Kathryn!
