what i wore :: camouflage

:: head to toe ::
glasses :: Warby Parker
dress :: thrifted
belt :: thrifted
tights :: mall
shoes :: thrifted in Florida

Once upon a time I was a really excellent speller. I just knew how to spell things. And if I didn't my guess was almost always correct. Now, I tried five times to spell "camouflage" and eventually had to Google it because I just couldn't get that sneaky "u" in the right place! I guess camouflage is a bit of a tricky one but I have been messing up so many words lately that I should totally know how to spell. Oh boy.

Moving on...I could totally hide in my home wearing this if I just stood really still against a wall. This dress is such a good match with our walls! I don't wear it that often because it reminds me a bit of a nightgown when I see it hanging in my closet. Then every once in a while I pull it out and remember what a fantastic colour it is and who cares if it looks a little nightgown-y. My solution is to add a belt because people don't wear belts to bed, right?

I definitely can't forget to mention my shoes. I found these babies in an antique store in Florida and I almost didn't get them. I know, I'm crazy! I mean, each shoe is different colours! How could I not buy them? I'm happy to report that I quickly came to my senses and purchased them. You may be able to tell that the plastic part on the heel is missing...it must have been dry and cracked because I kept finding bits of it on the floor while I was taking these photos. So...they need a bit of a repair but no big deal! I mean, each shoe is different colours!

Ivan and I are currently visiting some of our favourite friends and getting lots of fun blog stuff accomplished. I am having another favourite over this coming week to get even more wonderful things done. It is an exciting time!

  3. That dress is AMAZING! I spotted it in your post on Thursday and was hoping that you would feature it in an outfit post.

    I wish thrifting was better in South Florida. I never get a lucky find like that dress!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Love the colour of the dress, and those shoes oh my gosh are devine! If there was a link to some place to get them, I was so there. Maybe I've missed a few posts, only just noticed your hair colour change. Actually it took until the 5th photo down to notice LOL. Love the new look. Hope healthy hair finds it way to you real soon.

  5. I don't think the dress looks night-gown-y, especially the way you've styled it. Those shoes are fantastic! Each shoe is different colours! Jen x

  6. I was SO disappointed when I saw the word camouflage because I thought you meant you were wearing, you know, redneck, let's go "huntin'" camo. Dressing like a hillbilly is "cool" in my high school right now, which is pretty comical to see because they're all city kids, but whatever!
    Aaaanyway. that dress is so gorgeous! I really love the colour :) Try not to frighten me with the titles, pretty lady! Haha :)

  13. Aww, this dress is so cute! I love that color, especially paired with those tights. Also, I'm a good speller (6th grade spelling bee, no big deal) and I totally didn't know where the "u" went in camouflage so no need to feel bad! How often do you ever need to write that word anyway?

  30. Your clipboard wall is AWESOME!

    And I totally just had a major dumb moment trying to figure out why this outfit post was titled camouflage when you're not wearing any camo patterns. Then I realised (d'oh). Oh, and spelling camouflage gets me every time too.

  31. I'm good at spelling, too, but I still have the Oxford English Dictionary bookmarked for moments just like that!

  32. Those shoes are just too cute! I don't think this dress looks particularly night-gowny at all - maybe it's your excellent styling that makes it so hard to see?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I for one *lerve* nightgown-y dresses. Belt it up, baby!

  34. The dress is a gorgeous shade of blue.

    I love the brooch and fingernail shot. Cuuute!
