First off, big thank you to Betz of Her Armoire for bestowing the Beautiful Blogger award to our site! Nik and I will do a joint post soon of our own random facts and pick bloggers for the award. Thank you again, Betz!
In other news, I was really productive today. Did my emissions test, sent out a ton of emails, looked up some graduate school information. I think part of it was because I dressed up a little bit more and it put some bounce in my step.
About the outfit. I need to thank Liz of Lizzypunch for this beautiful coconut necklace that I won from her giveaway. She picked it up on her recent holiday trip and the jewelry line is made by the handicapped and elderly of Manuabo, Puerto Rico. It's a great piece and I can't wait to incorporate into more outfits. Thank you, Liz! Check out her lovely blog here.
The weather has been so nice that I didn't need a jacket when we took these photos. I bought the dress a couple days ago on my birthday with a Macy's gift card. I love the print and I feel like this will be a great transitional piece throughout the seasons. Umm, however. I felt a little guilty buying it even with a gift card because I don't really need any more dresses. It's the only clothing item I buy anymore and I try to justify it by the fact that it's a whole outfit. I've been pretty good with shopping recently, but it can get pretty impulsive sometimes and I definitely need to think about the lesser-worn dresses that I already have before I buy more.
I wonder, lovely readers, what clothing item dominates your closet?
Hope you all have a lovely weekend! Nikki will be back to posting after she gets over her cold/takes the SATs this Saturday.
