Going on a Trip

For my birthday (which is tomorrow if you want to leave any birthday wishes, wink wink) my mom and her wife bought me a trip to Colorado to see my boyfriend. So I decided I'd do a quick little post of the outfits I will be wearing for the five days I will be there. Yay!

Jacket: Thrifted
Dress: Thrifted
Shoes: Payless (they're actually kids shoes. I have tiny feet)

This is what I plan on wearing on the plane. Also those are the only pair of shoes I'm taking. I like to pack light. Also those are my boyfriend's dog tags. He's an Army man. Though he's just in the National Guard now while he finishes his last bit of school. On to what I'm packing.

Cami: White House Black Market
Sweater: Hand me down
Skirt: Thrifted
Belt: White House Black Market
Necklace: Forever 21 (it's a little rabbit)

Blouse: Hand me down
Sash: From my bridesmaid's dress from my mom's wedding
Skirt: same as above

Dress: Thrifted
Sweater: Same as above
Sash: H&M (from an old dress)

Jacket: Same as abobe
Shirt: Hand me down
Skirt: Thrifted

Yep that's all the clothes I'm taking. 2 skirts, 2 dresses, 3 tops, only one pair of shoes, and one jacket. Plus a few different necklaces. Now I am off to shower and then soon bed because I have to get up at 5 am to make my flight.

August Monthly Theme: Bows!

So I am participating in another one of Sophistique Noir's theme things. Instead of a week, it's just a one day thing. I'm putting it in last minute like the good little slacker I am. Anyways the theme is bows, so naturally I went a little overboard as bows are one of my favorite thing. 

I haven't worn this dress often enough and it's kind of fabulous. It's another one of my thrift finds. It's surprisingly lightweight and comfy. 

Here's a little close-up of the dress. I am kind of really in love with the swiss-dot like look of the fabric. Which is polyester georgette actually, not chiffon as I originally thought. My friend who goes to FIDM taught me that. 

Plus I wore my awesome bow headband veil thing that my best friend bought me. She has a matching one in black.

Plus bow shoes! The ones I got from work, otherwise known as White House Black Market. 

Plus bonus picture my roomie got of me and the cat. I look weird, the cat looks cute.
