We're Mint To Be

SIMPLY STRIPED. Today's outfit: my mint green graduation dress reworn as a vintage flowy A-line skirt (5/30). Because of the extra frumpy side material on the side sweater (see here), I folded it in and made a tail in the back with my hairtie. These unique basketweave nude loafers were thrifted from Scholarshop and were $10 and in a small 5.5. The insoles are coming out but JJ helped me glue them back in and they have a sharp clacking heel. Loaferrrsss ... I do love. Spent a few hours at Peet's Coffee today drinking a London Fog (steamed tea with foamed milk) and reading Sherlock Holmes. I had some serious conversations with the barista and rented Men in Black from the Redbox nearby. This is as productive as a day at home gets because recently I've been glued to my pink Nintendo DS playing Pokemon Pearl *throwback* hahaha. Many, many more outfits planned with this dress. So many outfits, so little days in the year! is how I constantly feel as my wardrobe spills and spills at the seams.

I admit this was a bit too thick to wear for a 70 degree sunny day but whenever the breeze blows in San Diego it becomes quite chilly. After searching high and low and in my 5 still-not-unpacked suitcases, I finally found my camera remote in a box with my external hard drive. When will they invent some kind of GPS for our stuff around the house? Whoever that is will become uber rich. By sticking my tripod and camera on one side of my backyard and shooting into the sunlight while standing at the other end at around 5 PM, the photos were quite washed out but Lightroom took care of everything with a few clicks. With all the bright sunlight around here and longer days, finding some consistent shade is difficult before 7 PM and I'm tired of the garage door.

Please please please visit my blog sale and RSS it for new additions! I would love it if these pieces could find new loving homes too ; ) You would be my sartorial BFF.

I LOVE the BBC Sherlock series and sadly if it wasn't for that I would have no interest in reading the book. I've meaning to get my hands on a copy like you! :D anyway it was so clever of you to tie the sweater back! I definitely have that frumpy problem sometimes with some of my jumpers but now I've new inspiration to wear them again, thanks to you :)

I've been super loving that mint color! I like how you tied your sweater. The little ties look cute!
I've been wanting to tie back certain clothes too because with some outfits I like it loose and some not, but I don't really like how a hairtie will just make a little ball. Do you know another way I can temporarily make tops fitted?

I've actually followed your blog for a while, but I don't think I've ever commented >.<

An A to Z guide on survival gardening that is easy to read and a joy to put into practice, full of photos, diagrams and step by step advice.

Even a kid can do this and, in fact, I encourage you to let the little ones handle it, to teach them not just about self-reliance but also about how Mother Nature works.
