Bright Yellow Dress

Hope everyone had a fabulous Mother’s Day! Willie and Hartley really made my day special and gave me a fabulous gift of renovating my stairs with iron balusters and stain. This was a MUCH bigger job then we thought, because of coarse our luck…the wooden balusters are screwed in from the bottom!?! No one on any of the YouTube videos had this issue, obviously, projects are much easier on a 3 minute video then in reality. I also am now painfully sanding white paint off one of the newels because I ended up hating my first design choice <sigh>. But I am hoping it’s all worth it and can’t wait to share all the photos and detailed explanation of how we transformed our boring oak stairs.

How fun is this BRIGHT yellow dress?!?! I love the scalloped edges details and pockets. It was the perfect dress to wear on Virginia’s first 90 degree day of 2017. I found this dress at the thrift store for $9.99 and paired it with my $6 nude thrifted heels and this fabulous cross body floral cross body purse from Target for $29.99.

I also have super exciting news on the fashion side of my blog! I got accepted into RewardStlye, so it’s given me the motivation and enthusiasm to really highlight incorporating my thrift looks with store brands. You’ll want to download the LIKEtoKNOW.it App to play along! Fashion bloggers, I have a new found respect to all your perfectly styled photoshoots. It’s HARD. I forgot my camera, I was hot and sweaty from standing in the carpool line, the sun was setting and we had about 5 minutes to get some shots after both working and visiting the hospital to meet our cousin’s new baby. Yes they aren’t the best, but I am learning and reading to set out on this new fashion adventure!

Happy Thrift Thursday and summer weather!
