I Paid Retail!

That's right, I bought a dress at Old Navy...for $10.00. It blew my allowance for the week, but it was worth it.

My favorite kid comment about my outfit today: "Mrs. S, those earrings are as big as your ear!" Truer words were never spoken. They are big.

There are only eight-ish days of school left, and I couldn't be happier. Don't get me wrong, there are days when I love my job, but these last few weeks of school are not them. The kids, the staff, and the teachers are all ready to blow this pop stand. I can't wait to have both weekend days all to myself (I usually grade and plan on Sundays)...not to mention actual weekdays, too! Hopefully my posts will be more interesting as I hop around the state of CO.





Shirtdress: Old Navy, Cami: Downeast Basics, Tights: OP, Belt: n/l (thrifted), Boots: Miz Mooz, Earrings: Target, Bracelet: Bejeweled4You (my Mom's Etsy business)
No, you wouldn't be the first person to tell me that I have unusually bony elbows. My brothers already took care of that.

  1. Gorgeous look! Love the denim and how you broke the solidness with a belt. I am following you now. Our styles are very similar, please come by sometime :)

  2. I've been admiring that dress for a while, but I have another similar one and can't see owning two. I love the way you styled it in a Western way without looking like a costume.

    Thanks for finding my blog, I'm following you now too!

  3. I love this dress! And $10 isn't bad at all. Well done. I've always wanted to wear a dress like this, but I don't think I'm the right shape or size. They always look really goofy on me. But you look stunning. And you know I love big earrings!

  4. I'm coveting those classic camel boots. It's already summer here in South Florida so I can't rationalize the purchase now, but they'll be in my closet by winter!
