floral babydoll dress~thrifted
gladiator sandals~charles david
i went through a "pink" phase a while back. i confess i wore lots and lots of pink. i still love the color pink but i've tried to wear it more sparingly now because i feel like it can look a little juvenile. i don't usually have that much luck thrifting but on an outing with my mom a few years ago i found this adorable baby doll dress. for a fleeting second i thought it may be too cutesy, even for me, but for $7 i couldn't leave it behind. in the past i've styled this in a much more conservative way but i was feeling a little funky this morning so i thought i'd try something different. i'm really loving the look of footless tights these days. i think it is unexpected, especially when paired with this dress. pearls are classic and once again add a little balance to the shoes and the jean jacket. when i came downstairs this morning d told me i looked pretty which was kind of unexpected because i thought he'd hate the tights, so i'm going to file this one in the win column.
