Daily Style...

It was 90 degrees today!
Dress: F21 (19.00)
Belt: Thrifted (2.00)
Shoes: Thrifted (1.00)
Bracelet: F21 (5.00)
I absolutely LOVE Native American inspired belts, and have a small collection growing in my closet. So, when I found this one at Todd Farm on Sunday, I knew I couldn't pass it up! I think I like them because I remember wearing them all the time as a child. They make perfect waist-belts too, since they are usually very small. I love all of the different colors that are incorporated in them.
A close-up:
I wore this after returning from working in Boston all day, the outfit I was wearing for work was too layered and uncomfy and the linen fabric of this dress ended up being perfect for meeting friends to celebrate a birthday over mexican food and margaritas. Linen is one of my favorite materials- it's so light and airy! I wish I hadn't spent so much time in the city, today would have been perfect for the beach!

Now, I have to let my inner narcissist rear it's ugly head for a minute (so If you'll please excuse me). How excited was I to log on to Weardrobe yesterday and find myself staring back at me!
(very excited!)
Thank you Weardrobe.com, for giving this girl a much needed boost! Weardrobe is a lovely website and I highly recommend you check it out (if you haven't already!)
Bonne Nuit!

@Nookie: thank you, I originally bought it as a swim coverup but it works much nicer as a dress!

@Clare: Thank you, the shoes are by Dexter and are orthopedic. you could probably find a similar pair online.
