what I wore; channeling Ms. Frizzle - The Dainty Squid

what I wore; channeling Ms. Frizzle

Monday, May 14, 2012

the details
sweater - Target
dress - c/o Modcloth
belt - Modcloth (a few years back)
tights - thrifted (originally from Target)
shoes - Forever 21

I might have squealed with excitement when I realized what was on this dress while browsing Modcloth's newest items. This is totally something Ms. Frizzle would have worn. It's such a fun print! I wish there were more awesome dresses like this one, with random objects, on it. 

If you couldn't tell this little bridge is my favorite place to take outfit pictures. (Uh, ya know, because I'm here almost every other outfit post.) It's at one of my favorite parks and the lighting is almost always just right. I try to mix it up and take outfit pictures in new places but something always draws me back to this darn bridge.

Here's me sniffing my armpit mid-jump, apparently...
Hope you're having a fabulous Monday!

  3. You look fantastic in that dress! I too love the print, very fun.

    Also the bridge is adorable, I like seeing the places you frequent for your outfit shots. They always look like they have a little story behind them and are filled with little mushroom people and tiny gnomes.

    Have a lovely Monday!

  15. I am so absolutely in LOVE with that dress! It's such a wonderful color and since I was a child I loved pencil shavings themselves! Soooo cute. Also, I love your bridge that you take your photos out, it just always seems perfect :)

  16. I'm such a huge fan of your purple hair with that green cardigan! I'm a sucker for those two colors together... though my fiancé never ceases to point out that I'm wearing "supervillain colors" when I wear them. ;)

  22. That dress brings back such great memories of The Magic School bus. Mrs Frizzle is definitely one of the best style icons of all time. I mean, she had a personal style to rival the best and she was super smart. I totally think this outfit would get a nod of approval from her. Very cute!
