The weather has to be just right for this dress. The material plus the long sleeves make it hard to wear in warm weather but the fact that it’s a dress makes it hard to wear if it’s too cold. I’m afraid it would be static cling city if I wore tights to it only comes out a few times a year. So maybe it wasn’t a practical purchase but I love the watercolor inspired pattern and the fun mix of colors.
Usually when wear this skirt I pair it with bright colors. I’ve worn it with yellow, magenta and bold black and white stripes but this is the first time that I’ve let it be the star of the outfit. I wouldn’t have believed that a green lace skirt from Target could be so versatile! I hope you’re having a great week.
While trying to add more pattern to my wardrobe, I noticed that peasant tops were often chuck full of pattern and color. More than other cuts and I have no idea why. So purchase peasant tops I did and then started to see how I looked in them in photos. When worn with slim fitting bottoms they looked fine but still a bit shapeless. When worn with a fuller bottom, I became a shapeless blob. So this is one of the last remaining peasant tops. I just can’t resist the fun pattern and colors.
If you would have told me a year ago that I would wear white jeans AND that I would pair it with a pink top, I would’ve called you crazy. Yet here it is, delicious goodness.
I’m sure you’ve noticed a new sponsor, Bitter Root Vintage. I’m so happy to have them and I’m sure you’ll adore their great clothes and accessories. Here are a few of my favorites:
I was invited to Goodwill of Orange County’s Build a Scare event with several other bloggers. We had a silly and fun time building costumes in crazy categories (like Granny Gaga) just by searching through the aisles. Here are a few pics from the night:

Halloween is my favorite holiday but I’ve gotten lazy about it the last couple of years. We haven’t put out our decorations (mainly because we don’t get many trick-or-treaters) nor have I gone full tilt with dressing up. So sad. I recently got this delicious orange tank and it seemed like a great start to Halloween inspired attire. We’ll see if I actually dress up this year (no plans to do so yet) but in case I don’t at least I paid a little homage to the season.
One thing I learned growing up with a limited budget is that getting yourself small treats every now and then helps to make simple living easier to handle. Since I have don’t currently have budget for clothes (or shoes *sigh*) I stalk items I want and wait for them to go on super sale. Which is exactly how this simple but stunning tank came to live with me.
