Fashion Friday #3: Bright & Blue

Standard

Outfit Details:
Shirt-dress: Thrifted
Belt: Mall
Leggings: Walmart
Shoes: Gifted

I was out thrifting with Bradley and Miss Kate when we spotted this brand new shirt-dress, bright as day with tags all a-hanging, sitting all alone at the very end of an aisle. I had considered and dismissed it, assuming its size to be a bit off, but my wonderful boyfriend knows when to encourage me to try something on. I was pretty darn pleased with the fit.

The only problem I’m encountering is, as you’ll see in the very last picture, that space between the buttons just above my belt keeps trying to give the world a peek inside. I’ve tried safety pinning this shut and I’ve considered glue dots, but I’m afraid the glue will stick there forever. Maybe I just need to fiddle with it a bit longer. Any ideas?

I gotta say I’m loving my silhouette here. I’ve thrifted another shirt-dress after being so inspired by this one, and I can’t wait until it’s outta the wash and into my closet. I’ve managed quite a few great finds since we’ve been shopping around to improve Brad’s wardrobe; I’m excited to share! These shoes were another great hand-me-down from Katie.

Thanks for stopping by for another Fashion Friday! Enjoy your weekend!

Fashion Friday #2: One with Nature

Standard

Hey there! It’s been a few weeks since I last posted an outfit of mine, so today I’d like to welcome you back to Fashion Friday #2! You may have seen this outfit around before, as I wore it on my birthday, at my family reunion, and even on the very first day that I met Brad. I truly cannot get enough of this dress.

Pictures today are by the handsome Mr. Bradley, but the last one is by the lovely Miss KT.

Outfit Details:
Dress: thrifted
Necklace: handmade by Miss KT
Belt: thrifted
Shoes: thrifted

The best part of this outfit? It probably cost me all of $15. I almost feel naughty wearing it in public.

In all seriousness, this outfit would not be complete without this stunning birthday necklace from KT. She has this impeccable taste for picking out stones, and I’m very lucky to be a recipient of her creative endeavors. Every necklace she has made for me has been nothing short of beautiful. Thanks, Katie!

Oh, and remember when I promised to add a picture to my new about page? Well, my image is finally uploaded, so check it out for yourself! Thanks for reading, and have a fashionable Friday, folks!

What I Packed

Standard

Hello, internet! It’s that time again that I’ve been whisked away for work. If you’re as absent-minded as me, every time you plan to be out of town for a little while, your brain panics and starts yelling “WHAT SHOULD I BRING?” So, here’s a list to my future self and anybody else who’s curious about what a little lady packs when she’s leaving for a construction job.

For this sort of a trip, I need to have about a week’s worth of clothing, and I need to put fashion completely out of my mind. My job requires me to be prepared to withstand all weather situations, usually for 8-12 hours per shift, so I’ve picked these items based on comfort and layerability. Continue reading for the full list.
