thoughts and feelings


A little pattern mixing for your Friday viewing pleasure.  Flowers and polka-dots, obviously made for one another.  The skirt is quickly becoming a favorite of mine for its m(odd)est length and super-light fabric; I can wear it for work, to dinner and then on a bike ride. Versatility ranks pretty high on the list of things I look for in an article of clothing.  Also, I'm trying to remix this Stop Staring! dress a bit more so I wore it as a corset top today.  I love the fit of the top but the neckline is cut a bit too scandalous for work, hence the tank top.  Yeah, there are a lot of layers going on in this look- cardi, skirt, (knee-length) dress, tank top- so I was basically wearing two outfits in cotton sundress weather.  It's too hot for all this yet.  My "if I dress for fall, it will be fall" theory isn't panning out as I'd hoped so far.

It's almost the weekend! And I got new shoes in the mail yesterday! And I'm going used-book shopping after work!  Those are things I'm happy about right now- what about you?

used book shopping, that is something to be happy about! Love this dress (as a skirt and as a dress) the colors are just perfect on you! I woke up to 40 degree temps this morning and spent 25 minutes digging my warmer layers out of the crawl space. Needless to say the house was in shambles when I ran out the door this morning!

Love all these layers, we really have to get this temperature swap sorted out. :)

I am excited about getting my first tattoo right now and just how awesome the sunshine has been recently. This whole golden light all day long thing is happening out there but it's getting near frost in the morning which is sending me ino too many layers land. Is there really such a thing? ;)

You seriously have the best style, I don't think there has been a single one of your outfits I've disliked. you look stunning!

I hate to show you the stuff I get away with wearing at work. I think of no dress code as a fringe benefit.

Genius use of the dress. Show us the new shoes!

Oh my gosh, I'm obsessed with this look, and your polka dot skirt & mustard cardi. I have a top that is identical to your skirt!
