Under the pink

Outfit Details:
Vintage pastel plaid dress: Crush Vintage Candy
Pink bow back sweatshirt: Forever 21 (similar here)
Dance Instead of Walking Heels in Cream: ModCloth
White tights: ModCloth (similar here)
Birthday cake ring: Le Petite Bonbon


I wish I had remembered to repaint my nails before taking these!

This dress happens to be one of my all-time favorites.  I had been looking everywhere for a pastel plaid dress, and this one from Crush Vintage Candy kept popping up in my searches.  It was listed as a size small, so I didn't even bother to look at the detailed listing... but then I finally did, and realized that I might just fit into it.  It was a totally reasonable price for such an adorable dress, so I bought it and was SO happy that I did.  I can't get over the adorable detailing on the collar, or the fact that it came with the most perfect peach belt I've ever seen.  I wore this on my blog (under more summery circumstances) back in May (see that post here), and I didn't realize 'til now how short this dress actually is on me... but I was still determined to remix it for colder weather, so I tried the sweater trick.  I think it worked out pretty well, though I still like the dress by itself best.  :)








I'm not exactly sure what I'll be doing this weekend (other than working).  I'm still feeling under the weather, though I've been basically assured that it isn't strep, and that it's most likely something viral -- which kind of sucks, since that just means it has to run its course.  I've been on a pretty steady regimen of Advil, since my throat feels like it's swollen shut, and that is the only thing that helps.  That, and mint chocolate chip ice cream.  Those are the medicines I swear by.






Have a super Saturday!

  10. How adorable is this outfit?! I certainly hope you feel better. I keep thinking (and feeling) like I'm coming down with something every day, but then it disappears, so maybe it's just allergies? Get some rest. Thanks again for stopping by last time. I'm so in love with your blog!
