Sautumn



Watch and Pearl Ring: Gifts from Hubby
Polished Rocks Bracelet: Gift from Big Sis
Sparkle Bracelet: Gift from M-I-L
Belt: Thrifted
Vintage Dress: Thrifted and Refashioned
Mustard Skirt (worn as a hem extender): JcPenny (clearance)
Vintage Snakeskin Heels: Gift from Lil Sis

So this outfit is ALMOST entirely Gifted and Thrifted...I'm on a roll!!!

I would talk about the Pearl ring, but I think I'll save that long story for a post of its own. :o)

Shoes, lets talk about shoes!  I was doing a yard sale with my Lil Sis last weekend.  Naturally we had to look through each other's junk treasures.  I really did find a treasure in these fantastic vintage snakeskin heels!  She knew they were BeAwesome, but yet to EVER wear them!  She needed the precious closet space (she has way more shoes than I do), so she gave them up.  I am soooo happy she did!

Ok, if I hadn't felt the need to extend my hem by an inch or so, this outfit would have been ENTIRELY G&T.  But hey, that one little item was a clearance item, so does it really count? :o)  I have worn this dress without a skirt or tights underneath (I'm the one that shortened it right were I wanted it after all), but that was before baby #2 came along.  Until I am no longer chasing him around and wagging him on my hip, I will not feel comfortable without a little extra coverage.

I almost forgot!  Sautumn.  This is my "still feels like Summer even though it is Autumn" dress.  The Vintage Hawaiian MuuMuu is covered with beach-y words in Fall colors...Sautumn for sure. :o)

  1. Yes, kid friendly hem lines are important! Full skirts can be a problem too, no matter the length--my kids tend to hug my legs in church and I'm always trying to get their arms out of my skirts so they don't flash me to the world, hahaha!

    1. Haha you are so right, I have had more embarrassing moments in long full skirts than the short ones! :o)

    1. Funny I found YOU through Sacramento. I was drawn to your turban, but kept looking at your posts and came across your brown leather shorts. I've thought of those dang things ever since. So awesome.

      Glad you came over to see me too. :o)
