I have to start this by profoundly thanking Alicia of Likely Badger, for the fashion blogger award. If you haven’t checked out her blog, please do because you wont be disappointed- she has great style, is cute as a button, talented artist, and I’m envious that she lives in Portland! I’ve been dying to head out west and Portland is on the list of places to visit!
No joke, I love packages- receiving them, tearing into them, and digging in for the buried treasure. Last night I got too excited to find the giveaway gift I won from Coco at Ruby Shoe Blues in my mailbox. Inside were the cutest little eyeshadows and blushes with the most creative names like Walkee Talkee blush, Ballet Slippers shadow, and Weeping Willow eyeliner. Thank you so much Coco, as I’m too excited to try them all and pretend I have somewhere fancy to get dolled up for!
Today I also made a journey to the next Anthropologie closest to me, and did I feel kind of silly for driving 45 minutes to get there just so I could gain a different experience and maybe find some new pieces to try on? Perhaps those thoughts did cross my mind, but I figured it was nice to be in a new environment and I was able to hit a couple of stores that I’d have to drive out for anyway, plus I could locate the f21 lace top for one of my readers and gosh darn it, it was worth it!
Randomly I found the Monochromatic Corset dress on pop-up in the September issue and since it was my size I ordered it right away.
Once it got here, I loved it on but wondered if there were just too many stripes going on, even though I love the criss-cross tie on the back. I decided to return it today and the SA helping me double-checked if that’s what I wanted to do, specifically because the current price is…wait for it….$10!! WHAT- um, yes please, I will most definitely buy the dress, again! So we’re back together again, and shortly it will make its debut.
Today I had a hard time getting dressed- don’t know what the problem was. I was actually hoping someone would come in and have an outfit all layed out for me but no one knocked on the door. I feel like there’s not enough creativity going on, but hey, at least clothes were worn and I didn’t go out there with stretch pants or my terrycloth robe….

Just realized both are gap items, especially because I hardly shop there. I found this blouse on sale in december and was drawn to the details but had the hardest time pairing it with anything, so I think that’s why today I resorted to jeans. As for the shoes, they are just darling in my opinion and the perfect spring wedge. Major props to target for bringing through such cute shoes recently, and without realizing I’ve scooped up 3 pairs in the last month!
