the DC Big Flea: part one.

The DC Big Flea (January edition) was a couple weekends ago and it was my first time going and it was so awesome! I took a lot of photos, so they're going to be broken into parts.

These were all taken at the same vendor, which was the first one we went to. I ended up buying a beautiful purple/pink-ish druzy quartz ring and a small irradiated quartz crystal (it's a combination of black & clear & it's beautiful). It was so cool to see so many different types of crystals—and I went with my friend who is a geologist, so she could tell me about every stone.

mewspaper print.

It's been so so cold that I haven't been taking outfit photos outside—but I decided to brave it for these. The other reason it's been mostly indoor photos is I get home after it's dark soooo my options are limited.

Dress: ModCloth (link)
Shirt: Old Navy
Sweater: Nordstrom
Belt: eBay
Boots: Madden Girl via DSW
Necklace: Etsy

My work Secret Santa got me a ModCloth gift card and then they had a pre-Christmas sale of 40% off so I was able to snag this dress for $23! It's super cute, but I'm really glad I didn't pay full price for it because it's very thin. I love that it takes people a minute to realize that there are cats.

chevron & bunnies.

Happy belated New Year! Holy crepe, I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted! Life has been really busy, and then with the holidays on top of that, I just didn't have any time to take outfit photos or edit and post them. But now that the holidays are over, I'm getting back in the habit of taking outfit photos and hopefully thus, blogging!

What I'm wearing:
Blouse: H&M
Sweater: Target
Skirt: Loft
Tights: Target
Wedges: Franco Sarto via DSW
Necklace: ModCloth

This outfit is from last month but I absolutely love how it turned out, and I'll probably wear it again soon. These wedge boots are the best—cute, comfortable, and go with everything. They're Franco Sarto and they are leather so I was hesitant about buying them but I know I'll wear the heck out of them.

ivy jacquard.

I've had my eye on this Loft dress for a few months, and finally snagged it once it was 50% off.

What I'm wearing:
Sweater: Land's End, gift
Dress: Loft
Tights: Target
Boots: Etienne Agnier, gift
Necklace: Madewell via Poshmark
Pin: Free People

The dress lived up to my expectations—the sleeves are perfect, the length is perfect, and the material is really nice. The dress is no longer available, but the top version is on sale. I was thinking of retiring these boots since I've had them a long time and the heels are getting worn down, but decided since they're a really good material it would be better to just gets the heels repaired then to give them up. I decided instead of retire a pair of lesser worn black boots (I got a new pair of black boots, so one of them had to go) even though they were a little newer.

mint & triangles.

I'm not sure if I've shown this dress on the blog before, it was an H&M steal from a couple months ago that is very much my old style but also my current style.

What I'm wearing:
Blazer: Urban Outfitters via ThredUP
Dress: H&M
Tights: Target
Necklace: Target
Boots: DSW

I really like how this outfit turned out, I wasn't sure how the mint blazer would work with the cranberry tights, and with such a busy dress.
