Couldn’t wait for Autumn

20 Mar

I’ve been severely under the weather for the past week. Like, could barely get out of bed sick. So I have tons of errands to catch up on. I’m still not quite up to snuff, but better. I refuse to go out looking like I actually feel, and I know wearing pretty things makes me feel better, even if it’s merely an illusion. So the focal point of today’s outfit is a fun late 50’s early 60’s batik print dress with a fantastic scalloped edge running around the collar and down the front. (I really bought it to wear this Autumn.) I paired it with an orangey-red straw hat, geometric plastic beaded necklace, brown leather belt, my new favorite cat-eyed shades and 60’s wedge shoes. I’m still on the lookout for coloured Bakelite bangles to pair with this. Since it’s such a busy print, I didn’t want to wear a brooch.

      Thanks Amanda! I’m getting better. Hopefully in a day or two I’ll be back to myself. 🙂
