Vintage with an edge

I have been wanting to give today's outfit a try for awhile now.  It's an attempt to start pulling this dress towards summer.  I guess I'd call it "vintage with an edge" since I added the boots.  I think I like how it turned out.  I still have other ideas for this dress too, it's such a fun piece.

I am loving spring!  I am not loving the inevitable thing that comes with spring - allergies.  Dealing with some lovely itchy watery eyes today.  So much fun!  It doesn't help that construction has started at my work too, so there is dust in the air everywhere.  Guess I'd better stock up on some eye drops!

What I do love about spring though is that the Pants Monkey and I are back to running.  We're not professionals by any stretch of the imagination and in fact, we're just doing the Couch to 5K program right now - easing back into it!  It feels good so far though, I find it's one of the best forms of exercise for keeping in shape! Legs of steel here I come!  Ha ha ha.....

Outfit rundown:
Shirt and dress - two birds vintage
Necklace - Vintage Pearl (gift from friend)
Earrings - Butterfly Boutique
Knee high socks - American Living, JCPenney
Boots - Target (old)
