Outfit: Romantia

This is my style of romantic:
Flowy, soft layers of beautiful fabric.  Jersey-knit.  Flat shoes.  Loose hair.  Something black to match my hair. 

I wore this for my husband and my anniversary a few days ago.  I thrifted this dress from Goodwill.




The label on the dress said "Made in Romania" and before I even read it I knew there was something very European about this one.  The feel of the fabric, the construction of the dress... I have seen pieces like this in many boutiques in Germany and they were always so expensive... nearly 100 euros most of them!



I think the best thing about my outfit that day had to be my gorgeous new wedding set (if you haven't seen it already!  I am totally bragging... i love it so much!).  I am also loving navy blue nails and hot pink lips right now. 

What I wore:
Thrifted Romanian dress.  Black leggings.  Motorcycle-style boots.  Material Girl necklace, gifted.  Michael Kors sunglasses.

Anyways... back to my HELL which is statistics and calculus... good thing I have some positivity to look forward to.  I need to hope and pray A LOT these next few weeks.

(things I wish I could be doing instead of crying over math and the military:  enjoying fashion week, planning outfits, editing photos, catching up on blogs, correspondence and my September issues, sleeping, eating better)

xoxo...

  3. Hahaha Guess certainly doesn't make shoes for walkin'. I had a pair that took forever to wear in, and still hurt if I wore them longer than an hour.

    As for choosing a nude shoe, it helps to get some close to your skin tone. I actually get lucky in that area because I have pale skin. You might need to try a slightly darker version. It's kind of like picking foundation, really. There are cool tones and warm tones. Keep trying!
