fringed heart

Gap heart tights, Kelsey Dagger "Fortune" wedges,  thrifted dress & lace skirt, Chicos bracelet, 
Decree bracelet, F21 cardigan,DIY fringe scarf, Mulberry for Target bag, vintage jewel hair pins

Here is the DIY scarf (tutorial below) in action! It was so beautiful out today, but I'm sad that it does not feel like December here but it does mean that I can wear this cute dress without a thick coat!

So this dress is yet another one that is way too short for me, but too long to wear as a top. AWKWARD. So what's a girl to do? I pulled out my lace skirt and made it look like a slip, which also made the skirt of the dress appear fuller. 

Go ahead, say it. The tights make me look like a leopard with heart shaped spots haha its cool, but I scored these at Gap for a super great price, so its ok. I also wanted to show that  this itty bitty bag can perfectly store my Blackberry, cash, chap-stick,and my debit card! 

Make due with what you have an work it baby, thats my motto. Ok, not really but I said it just now.

Sorry for the rambling, but I hope you all have a wonderful New Year. May it be a memorable one or may it be so much fun, you can't even remember it ;) 

I'm so glad I started this blog and adore each one of you, so thanks for your support duuudddes! Here's to another year of life and exploring!

What a great idea to layer the short dress over a skirt. I have a few things that fall into that questionable zone, so I'm going to have to try that little trick out.
Gonna check out that tutorial now :)

cutie cutie look! And I love that first picture...gorgeous. I am a Floridian so I am right with you with my feelings on the warm/cold dichotomy. It's sad not to have a white Christmas (even though we did get some flurries the other day) but nice not to have to hide your cute outfits beneath a tremendous coat and be able to spend more than five consecutive minutes outdoors in the winter. 65 and sunny today. I'll take it.

I love this look! I didn't even know that was a slip under there till i read it. It just looks like another layer of the dress. Smart way to fix a too short dress. And those tights are beautiful!

Love that outfit!

Also love "Be Ok" :o)
