What I wore: 7.6.11

 The Details:
dress - vintage
vest - thrifted
hat - thrifted
shoes - c/o BC Footwear
belt - ModCloth

I've had this dress for a really long time (I actually bought it on etsy for five dollars!) and hadn't worn it up until yesterday. Mostly because I didn't know what to wear with it. None of the cardigans I have felt right with the dress and on a whim yesterday I threw on the jean vest...I really dig it!

Hope you all have a fantastic day! Today I'm going to pack orders (thank you to everyone who bought something yesterday!!) then get to work on more color block triangle pouches - I'm obsessed!
xoxo!
