OOTD - Matchy Matchy

Ya'll, I'm a sucker for matchy matchy stuff.  I make it a point to coordinate stuff like earrings and shoes, and I'm even so picky, I can't stand when the hardware on my shoes doesn't match my earrings.  Like, silver studs and gold hardware?  I. Can't. Do. It.

Which is why it's SO surprising to me that I've never paired these shoes with this dress before!

I mean, talk about perfect!  And of course, because I'm always so subtle, I had to be sure to pair my polka-dotted glasses with my little polka-dotted topper too.  My matchy side has been appeased. (for now.....)

Dress: thrifted, $5
Shoes: Adidas Gazelle, via Amazon, $40

OOTD - Some Kind of Summer

This was the year.  I didn't know it when I first walked into Beautiful Lives Boutique recently, but this was the year that the search was over.  Every summer in recent memory, I've scoured the secondhand racks looking for a versatile, comfortable, and still stylish white dress to carry me through the summer's heat.  Every year, I'd come up short (sometimes literally with some of the hemlines I found!).  Until that day, so this is the year I get to rock this dress every chance I get.  If only I had remembered that date that will now go down in my sartorial history! (Is that too sarcastic and over the top? Who cares, this dress is CUTE!)

Outfit Details:
Jacket: thrifted, $4
Dress: secondhand via Beautiful Lives Boutique, $5
Shoes: gifted
Earrings: Wal-Mart, $2 (clearance)
Grand Total: $11

OOTD - Summer Prep

Decided to go through some photos that never made it here to the interwebs, and ran across a few that I wanted to share.  They really DON'T go along with the hot hot heat we've been experiencing in our pre-Summer summer weather (I mean, really, did we even get a Spring?), but do hearken back to the days of sweater weather.  Oh well, bring on the A/C and the sandals, and let's do this Summer thing!


Hi friends!  The blog might go a bit quiet this week, but be sure to stop by my Instagram this week for a whole slew of secondhand outfits!  I'm participating in a group challenge highlighting secondhand style (which is, of course, right up my alley!), so there will be a whole week of outfits posted through that platform this week.  Be sure to check it out, and all the other ladies that are also participating in the #thriftedchicstylechallenge !

OOTD - {obligatory post title}

I don't know what it is about today, you guys.  I've been trying to come up with a title for this outfit, and I keep drawing a blank.  I could go with "Civil War" to reference the blue and grey tones, or there's "Matched Up" because everything coordinates, or even "Meh" since that seems to be what my brain is doing today.  Oh well, I'll just leave those up there and leave it up to reader's choice.  Deal?

OOTD - Friday, I'm in Love....

...with this skirt!  I've had it stashed in my closet for a while now, and may have even posted it, but then it's been languishing in the back of my closet.  Waiting for the perfect fancy moment to be worn.  But then, I figured, life is short. Wear the skirt!  So, here it is, finally relishing the light of day again.

OOTD - Chopped

My hair has changed!  Again!  This time it was more necessity, since I FRIED it with all the past bleaching and color changes.  But, I love a good pixie cut, and am so glad I decided to make a long overdue change.  Vive la haircuts!
