Floral little Frock

Vintage Floral Dress: Thrifed
Polka Dot Tights: F21
Heel Oxfords: Amazon

    When I first saw this dress, I wasn't really sure about buying it. I realized it was only a dollar, so I caved in. I guess that's how I wound up hoarding. Not to mention, I love how it is fitted at the waist. It reminds me of something from the 1940's.

      I'm finally back in school mode! This semester I'm taking my last three major courses. I'm also doing field work at a nearby Elementary School. Most of my field work consist of me just doing observations, and I will have to teach five LESSONS!!! I'm a bit nervous but super excited! 

    This means that I will be extremely busy writing lesson plans for my field experience and for all of my three classes. I'm trying to cut down the time I spend on pinterest and on T.V. I think this will help me a lot. I need to stay focus and most importantly organized, if I want to succeed in this semester.

This weekend, I had a lovely time with my family. On Saturday we had dinner at Olive Garden. I also, did some thrifting. I wore this outfit to church on Sunday. I felt like a little sailor haha!

 Spotted these lovely and colorful chairs at the thrift over the weekend!



Pinspiration: Maxi Dress

The famous Maxi dress dates back to the late 60's. To me, its an essential piece of my closet.  There is something about its length or its volume that makes me feel like a princess. Not only that, but don't you ever have those days when you just want to avoid having to think of what to wear? A maxi dress is your solution! (depending on the occasion) They are perfect for breezy summer days. In the fall, I love to layer them with a lose cardigan and warm scarf. In the winter, I just like to wear a baggy belted sweater over it. And for the spring, I pair it with a simple blazer.
 Here in Chicago, I have worn maxi dresses all four seasons. But of course, not on days that it snows. I wouldn't recommend it.
 Here are some of my favorite maxi dresses that I have come across on Pinterest

To see more of my pins you can find me on Pinterst  here. Enjoy your weekend!



2012 Looks that Did Not Make it to the Blog

I'm still trying to get the hang of blogging since I'm new to this. Last year, I shared most of my outfits through instagram. And today I decided to share some of them which were not on the blog. If you follow me on istagram all of these may look familiar.

I'm so excited for this new year. I hope to share many more outfits with you. I really don't have a lot a goals in terms of what I'll be wearing this year. Maybe just one and that is to be appreciative of what I already have in my closet and make the best of it.
