Orange You Glad I am Wearing A Happy Dress?

I mentioned in a post a few weeks ago that I added 3 orange dresses to my wardrobe in the last 6 months or so. This is one of them and it is a size too big, but I love how it feels, love its shape, its soft drapey cotton, the price and of course the color. It had to become mine for 15 bucks. H+M is one of those stores I miss in Albania. There are boutiques that carry it here but for almost double the price. And their prices (not just their clothes) is what I miss, too. I think the little stretchy, wide, flower belt looks perfect with this dress and makes my waist look teeny-tiny. Who doesn't want that? =P

Artsy Dots and Pastels.

Hello Girls & Happy Hump Day!! How are you all today? I woke up today and froze. It was quite cold for being mid May, in the late 40s to be exact. I wanted to wear boots but settled for semi-thick tights, a pencil skirt, oxford booties and a button-down blouse instead. Of course a jacket was needed for outside. However, the outfit I am wearing in today's post was during a warmer, more typical Spring Day and I called for Pastels. This skirt has a fun unique print. It looks like computer pixels in soft colors like baby pink, lavender, coral, yellow & ivory. I am calling these pixels "artsy dots" because they are such. =) The top is a soft cotton nude tee that comes with a removable flower pin which is beige with white polka dots. I just wish you could see the earrings better. They are light, dangly & girly. The 3 thin silver strands are shaped like a twisted pear and they have clear crystals and beige/nude pearls hanging from them.
