The lure of new lengths

Dress: Vintage, handmade, thrifted (the trifecta of finds!);
Jacket: Aeropostale, thrifted; Belt: Ann Taylor Loft;
Shell necklaces: Aloha Stadium, Honolulu, HI; Shoes: Zigi Soho.

This is an outfit I wore last week to work, and pretty much typifies my go-to work outfit for my casual environment. I found this dress months ago during a trip to my favorite Salvation Army. It's a spaghetti-strap number and not usually the length or design I am often attracted to, but I really liked the pattern and color of it. It's got a lot of ruffles, which I dressed down with my casual jacket.

There have been more people out at my favorite photo locations. It's always amusing to see how things are re-arranged on the dock before I get there in the evenings -- sometimes the picnic table is moved to one end or the other, or someone leaves behind an item or two. An entire box of lures was left behind on the dock, so I borrowed a few to take photos.

I have to admit, I'm in a bit of a style rut lately. The weather fluctuations have messed with me a little bit, and it's getting so warm that pretty soon jackets and sweaters will just be superfluous. I'm trying to figure out how to keep going before it gets too hot and all I'll wear are just dresses with very little variety.

How are you staying sartorially creative as the seasons change?
