When I go to mom's, I always want to plan these amazing outfits because she has such great scenery but then I end up bumming around on the couch in my pajamas or running around outside in yoga pants and tee shirts. Now, I'm finally getting the knack of it and planning cute but comfy for weekends in the country. I haven't worn this dress in ages but you can't go wrong with a little cotton dress. I love the ric-rac trim and colorful print. Great for hanging out indoors, running into town or going on walks in the meadow.
I paired it with a 1950s cashmere cardigan that I was so proud of- thirfted last week for two bucks!
Oh and the brooch. I freakin' love this brooch and it was a total accident. We stopped at the craft store last Thursday night so could pick up my weekend craft supplies before our trip. I spotted a few really awesome jewelry findings on sale and this was one of them. I simply stuck an adhesive pin back on it and voila- epic novelty brooch!
