blush lace.

I came across this skirt when browsing through H&M online (when I was about to buy a cat print blouse, naturally) and couldn't resist adding it to my cart.

navy gridlines.

This dress was a total ThredUp impulse purchase, but a good one.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Mango via ThredUp
Necklace: ThredUp
Tights: old
Boots: Sam Edelman via Nordstrom Rack

I'm not sure why I'm making faces in these photos but oh well. I wore this the first day it actually felt like fall—and now it's full on fall, straight to the low 60s (so much for a transition!). Also, I was drawn to this necklace because the lightning bolt is part of my work's logo—gotta be on brand.

holiday party dresses.

I was talking with one of my coworkers the other day and we realized we have two cocktail-attire parties coming up before the end of the year. Most of my fancier dresses are for spring & summer, and one of my existing cocktail dresses is actually probably a little too fancy, so I decided it was time to look around a bit. Here are some really pretty options I found:

I ended up buying the Black Mesh Swiss Dot Long Sleeve Dress from Unique Vintage and the one below from ThredUP:

Now fingers crossed at least one of them works!
What are your favorite party dresses?

five photo friday: Grandfather Mountain

A few weeks ago we went to Boone, North Carolina, for a long weekend, and took a trip to Grandfather Mountain, which had an amazing view.

colorful crystals.

This was another recent thrift gem.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Milly for Kohl's, thrifted
Purse: Amazon, gift
Flats: H&M
Necklace: Etsy

A few weekends ago I went to visit my cousin who lives near Staunton and we went to this little consignment store that had a really good selection. I got so excited when I found this dress—Milly for $14?! As I did more research, I realized it was Milly for Design Nation for Kohl's, so it wasn't a huge steal, and turns out this dress has made the fashion blogger rounds, but I still like it. It's hard to find good fit & flare, short sleeve dresses that are an appropriate length.
