rose gold & flowers.

I hope everyone had a happy Fourth! This isn't a holiday appropriate outfit, but it's a pretty good one I wore to work a couple weeks ago.

Photos by my husband.

What I'm wearing:
Blouse: Urban Outfitters
Dress: Pact Organic
Shoes: ModCloth
Necklace: gift

With a special appearance by our cat Nathan! He loooooves the patio (he's too lazy & big to try to jump the fence, unlike our other cat Hannah), and so whenever we're out there, he has to be out there too. 

I found out about Pact Organic from—of all things—a Facebook ad, advertising their beautiful cotton dresses for $25 and free shipping. I clicked, and ended up buying this black A-line tank dress, which is perfect for layering (I checked and it's no longer available, sadly). 

Also, these shoesssss. I rarely buy from ModCloth since they were acquired by Walmart, but occasionally they have some good items on sale, like these Bettie Page flats. I need to find things other than black that they go with, but this is a start!

flowers + branches.

You guys are not going to believe how much I paid for this dress...

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Hearts & Roses, thrifted
Shoes: Old Navy
Earrings: Target
Belt: eBay

I thrifted this dress for $6. SIX DOLLARS! It's by a British vintage & retro inspired brand, Hearts & Roses, and retails for around $60. It's extremely well made, and fits me almost perfectly. How good is that?

an old favorite.

This is totally a recycled outfit, but it still works.

This Target blouse & H&M dress have lasted me a lot longer than I thought they would, that's for sure.

lace & tulle.

I went thrifting for the first time in a while a couple weekends ago, and this dress was one of my finds. It was new with tags and only $11! It's a liiiiitle short, so it's definitely a weekend dress, but I can't resist some lace and tulle.

Notice anything different about this backdrop? Our ugly, rotting deck has been replaced with a beautiful stone patio (and a new fence)! We are so happy with how this turned out, it's such an improvement, and something we'll actually use (and very good for our home value)! I'm obsessed with it. I'll have to do a post on the furniture & lights that we got for the patio too.

Welp, I accidentally took a month off, but life has been busy. But now I've got a good outfit photos backlog!

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Zara (via Poshmark)
Boots: Steve Madden
Necklace: Ragtrader Vintage
Earrings: Urban Outfitters
Lipstick: Bite Beauty
This outfit felt very "me," and it was suitable for shopping, wineries, and a concert (it was a busy day). I even got a couple compliments from sales associates at the J. Crew outlet, so I knew it was a good one, haha. I had debated over this dress when I saw it on Poshmark, but once I couldn't stop thinking about it, I pulled the trigger and I'm so glad I did—it's the perfect fit all around. Also, how badass are these boots? I got them for my birthday and they're definitely the most comfortable pair of black high heeled boots (I subsequently donated two pairs of similar but uncomfortable high heeled boots).  Definitely going to be repeating this outfit.
