In a blue dress

The return of early Fall or Indian Summer or whatever we’re calling it when the temperature gets up to 70 degrees in November prompted me to dig in the back of my closet for something to wear. I closed my eyes, reached in, and pulled out this vintage poly-tastic blue dress.

It’s still pretty chilly in the morning, so I bundled up in a cropped jacket, colorful scarf, and boots. I actually planned on wearing a different pair of boots, but somehow lost them in the pile of shoes and bags teetering precariously on a shelf in the mini-closet/accessory annex. I need to organize and purge that area, stat.

Vintage dress & bag; Gap jacket; Ann Taylor scarf & bracelet; Jessica Simpson boots

I don’t know what’s up with the serious-face. It was early, okay?

New issue!

Oh, the new issue of Style Sample magazine came out yesterday! Read it here.

    I love the look with the boots, the bag and the dress. Okay, I must admit the cover of the mag had me feening (lol) to take a read. I have viewed/read all of the previous issues, but by far this has been THE BEST!!!! I had to shut down the laptop at 1AM and make myself go to bed! Can’t wait until the weekend so I can browse some of the other bloggers sites you featured. But you know I’ve already peeped out Style Pantry- right, lol! Keep up the great work! Love it:)
