1,2,3 Stripes…You’re out!!

This weekend was oh-so boring, but relaxing. I didn’t do much. I did however go thrifting. That in itself was relaxing. UNTIL….this lady came in with her kid that decided he wanted to throw tantrums & work everyone’s nerves. Once she finally left, I enjoyed to remainder of my shopping excursion. I found some good stuff. I vowed not to purchase another blazer, but I saw a floral one that was calling my name and asking to go home with me. I washed it yesterday, and now it proudly sits amongst the sea of other blazers & coats. I also found a leopard sheer dress that I plan to rework.  Cant wait to show you guys.

Blazer:Thrifted, Pants: Worthington, Scarf & Socks: H&M, Ring: Rue21, Shoes: Bakers

**Edit…I got a few requests for a closeup of the shoe/sock combo!**
How was your weekend? Anything exciting?

Thanks for stopping by,

    I'm in love with the socks and the heels. They look so amazing. Aren't the H&M leggings so comfy? They're my favorite seriously.

    Ok! You freaking rock. I would have never thought to ever mix a printed sock with a sandal. I love it. How fly is your outfit. I'm most definitely following you.

    I just had a flashback of my college roommate, strutting around the campus of Wilberforce University in the late 80's, wearing tube socks and espadrille wedges. She made it look cool and you have made the sock with open toes look very cool. LOVE IT!

    Thrifting is totally relaxing! Well, until there are tantrums… I try to be patient but in my mind I think this tantrum is ruining my version of therapy.

    just found you from Alissa. Love the socks and heels. I've never seen it done with patterned socks and this is definitely the best way to do it!
