Happy Cinco de Mayo! The weather has been unbelievable this week, aside from a random thunderstorm yesterday afternoon, it's been just gorgeous. I love this time of year, when you haven't begun to take the weather for granted and it's not hot or humid enough yet to warrant complaints. Everything is so green too, it's amazing! I know I sound all dippy about this, but after a particularly harsh and ugly New England winter, Summer just seems like a miracle. Like something you kind of forget exists November through April, and then all of a sudden it's here!
Dress: Church sale altered ($2)
Shoes: Salvation Army ($6)
Belt: Thrift store find from Mom ($1)
Anyways, on to my outfit: I love the satisfaction an entirely thrifted outfit brings, like you beat the man or something. Take that society. I found this dress last year at a local Church rummage sale. When I bought it, it was super baggy on top and had some particularly gnarly sleeves, something a granny probably donated. I originally bought it thinking I would make it into a skirt or something, i really liked the linen-type fabric, and didn't see much hope for it staying a dress. Well, I was wrong, after hacking it with scissors and taking it in about 6 inches either side up top, I really love it! I've really been feeling dresses this week with minimal accessories, they're a little too easy!
Do you have Cinco De Mayo plans? I'll be making Jen's tostadas and drinking Coronas with my honey. Certainly quieter than the typical bar scene, but I like it that way!
Oh, and wow! I never expected the response I got for my new Shop Orchid Grey feature! Thank you all! Everything is spoken for right now, but there will be another update next week, so stay tuned! xoxo
