Sorry for another outfit post. I am trying to get through my summer pictures. My mom will be happy. She loves the outfit posts the most.
I could not recall the name of this dress that I purchased last year. I had originally styled it like Mary on Happily Grey, on my older blog post here, but I had wanted to try it exclusively with gold and pink this time. Make it my own.
I found the name of the dress. And it made me smile, because I had picked this dress out of my closet that day simply to ease a heavy heart.
The dress is called, “With A Light Heart Dress.” I am sure it is sold out by now because when I purchased it in 2013, it was all ready 66% off. I bet it can be found on eBay. I cannot guarantee the light heart, though (I am not linking to a similar dress because I honestly could not find one similar enough to warrant a link and I do not like to add links simply for the sake of clicks).
The necklace is Anthropologie’s Lace Flag Necklace from last year. It is surprisingly hard to find pink jewelry. I am happy I picked this up. The shoes can be found here.
It seems silly, but I was thrilled to get a compliment on this outfit earlier in the day.
A woman stopped me when I was with my son and said, “I like your son-”
And I thought to myself, She likes my son? That is odd.
But then she finished. “I like your son-dals. And your whole outfit is just so cute.”
I thanked her and soared inside, both from the compliment and the fact that my son was not being strangely commented upon.
Another silly thing is this bracelet. I love it. I purchased it from Anthropologie when it hit sale with my husband’s initial. However, it is the only piece of jewelry that has ever turned my skin green.
But I still wear it.
‘Cause green skin is kinda cool. I do like to channel my inner Hulk, after all.
Not really, but I do wear it for short periods of time because I really like the bracelet.
Have you ever had jewelry that turned your skin green? Did you still wear it? Do you compliment strangers? I try to always compliment one elderly woman every time I leave the house. One time I was in an airport and I accidentally kicked the poor lady with my shoe when I tried to tell her I loved her dress. She probably did not appreciate that compliment so much.
I hope I did not give her a green bruise.
Maybe this bracelet is compliment karma.
Or some such light hearted nonsense.
