This is my new 60s-Barbie-doll-clothes dress, as I’m calling it. That, or the Elle Woods/Jackie dress. I saw this dress and pined over it for a whole week before I decided to buy it. When I went back to purchase it, to my utter dismay, it was nowhere to be found! Nowhere! I searched all of the racks, high and low, and even had the sales lady helping me. She didn’t remember selling it, so it HAD to be somewhere! Turns out, it was discarded in the dressing room on the floor, trampled under the feet of a burly man who was trying on some construction pants and hacking up a lung. I picked it up, dusted it off, and decided with even more resolution than before, that it was coming home to be loved and worn by me. I simply adore all of it’s beautiful sky blue happiness. What do you think?
{The mouse in my house must approve, since he’s living in my closet. Gah!}

Wednesday Work to Weekend

Ahh, halfway through the week, my friends!! We can do it!! 
A bright floral outfit and some awesome boots oughtta help, don’t you think?
And when it’s time to rock the weekend look, chill it out with some softer tones and flat boots. I switched black (more dressy and professional) accessories for camel/brown tones, and threw my hair up. Perfect for some antiquing!

I definitely tried to make this dress more casual for daytime wear by adding the texture of a cardigan + belt _ boots. Military green + Bordeaux may be my new favorite color combination. The original use for this beautiful dark ruby dress? It was from my beautiful cousin’s beautiful wedding early this summer! Here’s the original look, which I just love! Red + pearls = makes any girl feel like a million bucks! 

Early Summer wedding or Autumn Layers, this dress fits the occasion!

Psstt…this isn’t the first time I’ve reworn a bridesmaid dress. Here’s the other outfit, one of my very first.
