Moving day!

Dress: Ariella;
Sweater: Forever 21, borrowed from Nik;
Belt: Ann Taylor Loft;
Bag: Fossil, thrifted;
Shoes: from Philippines, gift;
Headband: borrowed from Nik.

This post is going up really quick because today's moving day, and I really should be getting ready to haul heavy furniture!

So this outfit was really out of necessity. I basically packed away all my clothes Sunday night in the anticipation of moving things Monday, and when that didn't happen right away, I had to just pull out the first clean clothes I could find out of the bags. I rather like the swirls of the sweater against the lace of the purple dress.

Taking these photos was a bit awkward. I went in the morning in the hopes that it would be cooler in the day, and apparently that's when everyone goes to the farm park. For whatever reason, my tripod and my lack of athletic wear seemed to attract more attention than usual. There were several people who gave me weird looks when I set up my tripod, and one in particular who watched me for several minutes with her toddler in tow. I had to pretend to be really interested in taking a landscape shot for several minutes, and when I noticed she wasn't leaving her spot and was still staring at me, I moved downhill so I could take the photos in privacy. Oh, well. I hope my picture-taking provided some amusement and perhaps a bit of mystery to the onlookers.
Hope you enjoy these last photos of my long, long hair...because I got a haircut! I usually put off haircuts as long as possible, but it got to the point that my hair was getting too straggly for daily styling, and it was going to be the last time for awhile that I'd get to go to my regular salon. Photos of the cut in my next outfit post!

Happy Wednesday,

signature1 by you.


  1. I love the purple dress with the red belt. Purple and red is so much fun!

    And you never know, maybe that woman was a reader of yours and just wanted to watch some behind-the-scenes action. :)

    Hope everything goes smoothly today with the move! Stay safe and remember - lift with your legs, not your back! :)

  2. Let me know if you need help! (yes, all the way from Canada!)

    p.s. Saw you featured at Linda's blog! Here's my comment:

    I visited JoAnn's blog today and it has led me to yours! I'm so glad you featured her as I adore that girl as well!

  3. Good luck with the move today! And I can't wait to see your new hair!

  4. I'm loving the soft cardigan over the flowy dress.

    And I'm glad the move is going well so far! It can definitely get stressful, but it's usually worth it in the end. :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
