So I'm going to brag.  I totally love how this outfit turned out today.  Creativity knows no bounds with my wardrobe these days!  I love the shade of blue that this shirt is, but I was a little worried I wouldn't have enough in my closet to put with it - after a quick check this morning I already have two other outfit ideas in addition to this one.  

The countdown to vacation continues.  This dress (worn as skirt) always makes me think of a tropical destination.  I could see wearing it on a beach on some tropical island.  No tropical getaways in my future though.  That's ok though, I love my MN Northwoods and am more of a beer girl than a drink with an umbrella in it girl (even if I can't have them right now), so it all works out.  I can just pretend for a day when I wear this dress that I'm really off to some enchanted island!

Dress as skirt - vintage, Salvaged Strawberry 
Shirt - Old Navy Maternity, thrifted
Necklace - Charming Charlie
Sandals - Merona, Target (old)

Speaking of this dress, I found it last year at one of Amanda of Salvaged Strawberry's awesome pop up sales.  If you're local, she and her thrifty partner in crime Ashley are having a Tandem Vintage clearance pop up sale at Glam Doll Donuts this Saturday and Sunday from 9 to 5.  I don't leave town until Sunday, so I'm totally heading over there Saturday afternoon cause she's even got vintage for kids!  Although I guess it would help if I knew just what type of child we're actually growing here.  Oh well, two more weeks and we'll have that answer!
