Happy Wednesday, everyone!
A few days late with posting these, but better late than never...
Do you know how some certain pieces of clothing can remind you of specific times in your life? Well, me and this dress have some history together. I thrifted it back when my parents were living in Maine. Even though I think it's a cute, 90's inspired print, I used to wear it a lot during some of my more depressed days, so it has that association for me. Also, I've since lost some weight and it's a little too roomy. Honestly, this dress was in my "get rid of" pile recently... but I decided to rescue it for one last hurrah.
To be quite honest, one of my favorite things about this outfit is the socks :P I ordered a few colors from Show Your Legs on Ebay, and I must say, I dig them. The material unfortunately doesn't feel like cotton (even though supposedly, it is.) But they are sturdy, comfortable, and I feel like colored socks (much like colored tights) are an easy way to jazz up an outfit. If you order a few pairs and save on shipping, they're a pretty excellent deal!
