uses for the earring you didn't lose

I know chambray + leopard has been done to death already but I couldn't resist taking a shot at it after I picked up this top at a thrift store.  It's actually an XXL Old Navy tunic but the fabric is thin enough to tie up without a lot of bulk.  I love the easy shape and laid-back appearance of this outfit but after seeing these photos I think I'm going to let the hem out of this dress- it's just the slightest bit too short for work-related activities.  To counter the scandalous length I went casual with a flat oxford and if I had worn this on Saturday instead of Wednesday, I might have topped the look off with my straw hat.  The bubble ring is a new favorite; it's a re-purposed beach glass earring I purchased in Hawaii years ago.  I lost its mate a while back and never let go of the remaining piece- so glad to have found a way to work it into my wardrobe once again.

Have an awesome weekend!  I'll be spending this one in much the same way as I usually do: coffee on the porch, Lifetime movies on DVR, crafting in my pajamas and eating grilled muenster and bacon sandwiches.  Oh, and on Saturday we're going out to people watch for Halloween, so there's dressing up on the agenda as well.  I should also add that it's FL/GA weekend. Not that I care about football or anything, but it does take place in Jax so it's an event worth mentioning.

I may have to borrow this idea, so I can do something with all of my lone earrings.

Love the tied chambray shirt - I blame you if I end up buying up all manner of shirts soon. You are getting a "tieable shirt" wish lodged deeply in my brain with all these awesome versions of it :)

Hope you had a great weekend!

If you make that dress longer you're going to break my heart! I love you in that micro-mini length, especially with the accessories. But I guess if you must, you must. At least you got some pics of yourself looking hot in it. ;)

Your blog appears extraordinary - fulfilled with outstanding information.. along with so on. I expect you might grow still even superior work by means of inserting various drawings with photographs. I trust this is an ok manner to reveal it. Despite the fact that I've bookmarked it. Thank you.

In conclusion , allow me thank you for your tolerance with my English as (I'm certain you have become aware this at this time ,), English is not my mother tongue consequently I am utilizing Google Translate to figure out how to compose what I truly intend to articulate.
