Spring Fashion Week- Wednesday!

Consider me inspired. By YOU!!




This dress is a new favorite of mine because it is easy and colorful! I bought it at a thrift store recently and it had a really long skirt on it, so, as I always do, I cut it shorter. Somehow I ended up cutting it much shorter than I wanted, though, and it was no longer a dress, but more like a long blouse. I was pretty bummed until I started playing with it and pairing it with shorts and skirts and leggings. Now, I think I like the short length more than if I had kept it longer! Hooray!

It's more versatile this way! Or something!



Here's a view of the pretty sleeves.



It has a super cute print: little black branches with turquoise berries and tiny white leaves on it. Me loves.


I never ever wore pink until just recently. I thought it washed me out too badly. But, I find myself loving it all of the sudden! So strange. Maybe I'm finally growing out of my tomboy stage. ahaha.

Blouse- vintage Lady Carol of New York, thrifted
Cardigan- Vintage thrifted
Gray Shorts- Charlotte Russe? I think?
Gray tights- thrifted
Gray Flats- Old Navy
Heart Necklace- Thrifted


What are you wearing this fine Wednesday, the last day of March?

I also love pink. It's always been my favorite color (though I tend to wear purple/red variations more these days). Lovely pattern too!

Jessi said...

That is such a good idea to shorten up a dress like that. I am totally going to do that the next time I find a cute dress that's too long. Thanks for the tip!!
And very cute outfit by the way!
