what i wore >around the house

head to toe:
cardigan - H&M
shirt - vintage
belt - thrifted
dress - thrifted

I wore this around the house the other day. I love how full this skirt can get when I twirl or walk down stairs. It is so fun! Also, I really like this shirt but it took me a while to figure out how I could wear it because it is kind of short. You can take a peek at another way I styled it here. Do you have a piece of clothing that you love but had a tricky time figuring out how to wear?

and just for fun...here's a funny face photo.

ps. please excuse my terrifying feet. if you have kids don't show them my feet, it will probably give them nightmares :)

EDIT: I meant to announce the giveaway winner in this post. Oops! The winner of the giveaway is Jess from Better with Tights. Go pop by her blog to see a cute outfit that she wore the other day.

Thanks so much to Paige and Zoe for sponsoring a giveaway. (oh, and I think someone got confused...they are not MY sisters, I am an only child. They are sisters with each other. Just to clear up any confusion, haha)

  4. i love those two colors together! i also really love these posts...so interesting how cute you look while around the house...but for kicks you should show the other side!! yesterday when i got home i decided to put something cute on instead of jumping right into my pj's and it was so refreshing! but then i had to get ready for my big lebowski costume so it was back to the pj's for me ;D

    i have a couple of things in my closet that i just love and i don't know what to do to make them more wearable.. or versatile for that matter. this is where a trade with another blogger would come in handy and see how they wear it....does that idea make your mind turn....?????? maybe we could start something? let me know if that sounds appealing and we can chat over some emails?

    xo,

  8. Another great Elycia creation!
    I want that cardigan. Did it come with the heart on the elbow? Why have I never seen this cardigan on the racks? I'm an H&M addict. I'm disappointed with myself haha.

  13. That is a great outfit- I really like the print and design of the shirt! : ) I have a shirt that is too short (stupid dryer! Normally I line dry all of my clothes but it got mixed in with my husband's stuff) and I still haven't figured out what to do with it. I was thinking of making it into a purse.

    Also, did you announce the winner of the Sealed with a Kiss and Pink Lemonade giveaway yet? I wasn't sure if that was posted somewhere else. : )

  15. Hey girl!

    Love those heart thingies you added to the elbows! And blue and yellow is indeed a nice combination--its the colors of the swedish flag, hehe.

    Have a nice weekend!

  16. I've seen worse feet than that! Currently my boyfriend has one black toenail and one purply red toe nail. Were pretty sure the black one is a goner.
