When I put this outfit together I wasn’t sure about it, so I asked Mike if I looked weird.

His response? “Usually.” Wise guy.

For a brief moment we had autumnal weather here, and even–hold the phone–RAIN, so I honored it with a long-sleeved dress.

(A long-sleeved dress that needs ironing badly, it would seem.)

I also honored fall…somehow…by wearing earrings made of wasp’s nest! Kicky, right?

We’re back to 80F and above for the next fortnight, so at least I’ll have time to iron the dress before its next wearing.

I came really close to picking a belt that matched my sandals on Friday, but somehow swerved away at the last minute.

20150918-IMG_4786

I like this better anyway–it reminds me a little bit of one of my early outfits for the blog, even though the belt is the only item I’ve held onto all this time.

20150918-IMG_4788

And to be honest, the belt is starting to look a little…distinguished? It might be in its twilight years at this point.

20150918-IMG_4791

Anyway, is matching one’s shoes to one’s earrings as passé as shoes/belt? I never can keep up with these things.

I bet I’ve worn a near-identical version of this outfit on the blog before, considering most of the pieces have been with me for some time, but I’m not about to go look.

20150917-IMG_4770

Plausible deniability is the name of the game, folks.

20150917-IMG_4771

It’s not that surprising, anyway. I’ve had most of the pieces in this outfit for a long time, relatively-speaking. The dress has been with me for over two years!

20150917-IMG_4775

And okay, two-plus years is not that long a time to have a garment (my dad has bragged about shirts he owned for twenty years or more), but it’s longish when you consider the lifespan of this blog, and my interest in clothing in general. It’s practically an old-timer! Let’s hope it doesn’t get gunned down three days before retirement.

Dress: eShakti — Shoes: Dansko — Belt: Thrifted (Target) — Bangle: Thrifted — Earrings: Gift from Megan Mae

20150905-IMG_4668

Ahoy-hoy! Remember me? My dad’s been visiting–just left this morning, as a matter of fact–so it’s been a little hectic around here the last few days and a couple days off the blog were a necessity. (Also Monday was my birthday, but that’s beside the point.)

20150905-IMG_4670

My usual photo spot was a little crowded, so I gave the spare room a shot. It’s mostly a storage space, with a dash of Flat Tire’s food and unmentionables, and also where I keep my clothes-drying rack (thus the cameo by that floral shirt I got at the Vintage Fashion Faire). The light isn’t quite as good as in the dining room, but it’s not bad for a backup plan.

Also, check out these earrings from Megan Mae! She threw them in with the purse I bought from her recently, and I’m a fan. Seems like they were a little jittery about their first appearance on this blog, though. Next time I’ll have to calm them down first.

The neckline of this dress makes it difficult in certain situations–it doesn’t really work with necklaces and I have to be really careful not to lean over too far–but it’s fun and interesting enough that I don’t really care.

20150827-IMG_4590

Who needs necklaces or leaning over, anyhow?

20150827-IMG_4591

Speaking of difficult: I really like the clean lines and stitching of this belt, but it’s a little too small and it’s time to admit that we should part ways. It’s nobody’s fault; sometimes these things just don’t work out. Anyway, belt, I hope we can stay friends, and maybe get some coffee sometime.
