red red red cardigan

disclaimer: I'm a bit stupid and did not pack my camera's battery charger. Hence, these are iPhone photos and not at all that good of quality. Still fun though, since I got to stand on a picnic table.


Usually, when it comes to getting dressed, I feel it's easier to choose one item to create an outfit around. However, that did not happen today. I put on this dress but then realized I needed some light bit of outerwear, since the Boyfriend and I were planning on walking down the pier, which is a cold windy experience, albeit pretty. I only brought a black cardigan and a light taupe jacket, but neither made me happy.

Since my dress had a tiny bit of red in it, I threw on this bright red cardigan, which normally, I would never ever wear. I actually bought it for my friend S, who blogs over at 30 Day Adventures. She wears bright colors every day. So I borrowed it, although I haven't even given it to her yet.

Never would have worn it had I been at home with my whole closet, but I'm not too dissapointed :)


Got around to wearing those loafers I hunted and hunted for.




there's a better look at the pattern on the dress.

And, everything was thrifted, except for the headband & knee socks. I could not resist wearing new things. I'm going home tomorrow, which is a bit sad, but I'm all packed with all of my awesome new thrifted things.

  7. Hi fellow Oregonian Lea! That’s cool! I started blogging in March! I’m from a very small town Dayton. I work in McMinnville for Evergreen (the company that is building the new Wings & Waves Waterpark in the middle of cow country). I know! I think the hairdo will be perfect for summer since I will need something to pull away from my neck I’m sure I’m going to be running around like crazy with our new Waterpark. I’m excited that you’re from Oregon! Did you know that most of the bloggers in this little odd state are running, yoga; health eating, GOING VEGAN, or my baby is 4 months and counting type blogs? Well, anywho I’m excited to hear that your from around here and I will be following diligently :)
