sweater - Target
belt - came with the dress

socks - Target
I'm absolutely in love with this dress, I'm thinking about grabbing it in it's other color way too! It's super light weight and cool (unless, of course, you're wearing a slip underneath - you'll sweat your butt off in this heat.) Plus I felt super snazzy in it. It's one of those dresses that I just automatically feel cute in no matter what.
I wore this last Sunday (I'm just a liiiiittle behind on posts, blame it on my new iMac). Kevin took me to Cleveland to celebrate my birthday. We grabbed food at Tommy's, which is literally the only restaurant I like, and took it to a park to enjoy. Sadly, for the first time ever, the food wasn't good. I said "no onions"! Buuut that was totally redeemed by the fact I found the biggest mushroom I've ever seen in person in the woods next to our picnic bench and it was from my favorite genus of mushrooms, amanita. The woods were covered in mushrooms, everywhere we turned we about to step on them. It was amazing, truly a great experience. Just thought I should mention - the mushroom photo above is totally unrelated. I found that in the yard before we left for the day. Sadly I didn't take my DSLR with me to Cleveland but I did take some film photos of it which I'll share as soon as I hook my scanner up.
Then we hit up a few thrift stores, and my two favorite vintage stores - Suite Lorain and Flower Child. (If you live in the area and you've never been to both of those - GO NOW.) I didn't find anything but looking really is over half of the fun. I love running my fingers over all the clothes and digging for that perfect object.
Overall my birthday weekend was a success, as was my birthday week! Now to conquer my birthday month! You guys celebrate your whole birthday month right? I sure do!
Well, I hope you all have a perfect Monday!
