Daily Style...

While taking my morning pictures, I missed the downpour by minutes! It was just so incredibly dark this morning, I had to lighten these images considerably so you can sort of tell that the tights are striped. Somehow purple has weaseled its way into my wardrobe, I never really wore it until recently.
Dress: Yard Sale (1.00)
Belt: Urban Outfitters bargain basement (9.99)
Tights: Urban Outfitters bargain basement (3.99)
Shoes: Urban Outfitters (28.00)
I added the ruffle collar myself. It's just trim from JoAnne's Fabric.
The fog was beautiful this morning, and really lasted all day. 
The rain has turned my mildly green town into a wild jungle, the greenery has gone completely mad and grown out of control. No one has mowed their lawn in weeks. It's all well and good, but my plants need some sunlight!
The view from my roof
When the fog rolls in to Beverly, it comes in so thick off the ocean that you can see it rolling over the rooftops and down the street. Today was no different, we were enveloped in a thick mist. Maybe this means it's warming up?

That added collar is just great! What a terrific idea!! I am impressed.
I didn't realize you lived in Beverly. I went to Endicott for my first year of college but hated their terrible art program so I left. But I enjoyed Beverly very much when I was there!
