Ok I have decided not to continue with the remix challenge. Every time I get ready in the morning dresses like the one above jump out at me and I finally reached my breaking point. I've learned that I just can't limit myself when it comes to my closet because I'm not very good at it. Plus, I'm heading down south to TN for a few days this week and they have amazing thrift/vintage stores and I know in my heart I couldn't stay away from them. However, it was fun while it lasted and I'm glad that now I can wear all of my little summer frocks. Yeah!
I found this dress a few months ago while I was in TN (you see what I mean??) and about fell over as soon as I saw it. I knew this baby was coming home with me and later being initiated into my closet. I felt like a 6 year old preparing for her birthday party, all I really needed was a big cake! The last time I wore this I paired it with a black cardi, black flats and a black belt, this time I really wanted to play with the color. The green matched nicely within the dress and the belt just topped everything off. Went neutral with the shoes because I didn't want to take away from the print of the dress, and added bonus- I found them at Target for $12, score!
I also wanted to give a little shout out to one of my jobs Studio 35. I honestly had the best work night of my life there last night. Kevin Smith and his crew came and filmed two SModcasts and it was amazing. He came in June and they all had such a great time they wanted to come back. He and his crew are amazing (& hilarious) people and if you ever get a chance to see them live it is worth every penny, you'll laugh so much. And if you are ever in the Cbus area come visit Studio 35, it's a little cinema treasure and a staple in Columbus (opened in 1938!) I'm just lucky to be able to work there and with some pretty fantastic people at that.
Thanks for reading this guys, if I didn't bore you already. You're all pretty awesome too.

Hat & Scarf: Thrifted
Skirt: Talbots (when I worked there)
This is going to be short and sweet since one of my best friends of all time is here for a visit, Ross! We are grilling out and chilling and chatting it up. This outfit I wore the other day to run errands-more specifically the library. I finally got a card! I just wanted to be comfy for my errands but still look somewhat presentable. The hat and scarf are newly thrifted and I am pretty sure the hat is a guys hat, but I kinda don't care for $2. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
p.s.-sorry my pics are small idk what the eff happened, meh. computers.

Scarf (on hat): vintage, thrifted
Purse: Aigner, DSW
Ahh I am so ready to get this remix over with and wear all of my little summer dresses. Last night I was making a list of all the ones I want to wear before the season switches out. Hopefully its soon... Anyway, today I went and got ice cream with my co-worker (&pal) Jodi and it was perfection! The weather was nice and the ice cream was delicious. After that we went to...(insert very dramatic music)....the thrift store. I know I shouldn't have stepped foot inside but I did and...I spent. I know, I know it's part of the rules but oh well.
You see, I found burgundy Isaac Mizrahi heels, my size!, for $3 and I caved. I shouldn't have put them on and lord knows I don't need anymore shoes but what's a girl to do when she finds lovely Italian made shoes in her size for a mere 3 bucks? Well let me tell you- she is to buy them! At least that is what the fashion gods told me inside of my head. Now they are waiting for the perfect Fall day to make their debut and gosh darnit I can't wait!
Thanks Jodes for the snaps and the ice cream!
