Evening sun







Dress, Sweater & Necklace Forever 21
Shoes eBay, here
Managed to get in some photographing yesterday while it was gorgeous out! Now it's back to the rain. Agh.  Summer can't come soon enough. Oh and please excuse the shaggy yard, haven't had much good weather for up keep.

I've been wanting to find some way to wear this dress again after I wore it New Years. It's cute and comfortable. But I wasn't sure how I could make it look like an 'everyday' dress. But I think I managed to pull it off here. Just add: tights and sweater and voila! The print on this dress didn't photograph that well. It has a gorgeous rose lace with gold shimmer. It's one of my favorite dresses. This sweater I purchased recently is already getting a little shaggy. But I kind of like the look. The booties are Jeffrey Campbell inspired Litas. I got them at a fraction of the cost on eBay. They are actually pretty good quality. They've had a good beating already and are still in great shape.

I have broke down and used hot tools on my hair. *blushes* It was the addiction that broke me. But I do have to say that my hair is in pretty good shape after about two weeks of purging myself of curlers and flat irons. I really like the look of these curls, they're so pretty. A little frizzy from the winds we had yesterday though. It bugs me I still look pasty in these photos, even though I am quite brown from my self-tanner I've been using. I did brighten my photos a little, maybe that's the culprit. Doesn't do the tanner justice! I'll be doing a proper review soon.

My blog giveaway has gone live as of yesterday. But I haven't had one entry. *sad face* And I know it's because most of my readers are international. I apologize that the giveaway isn't. I wanted so badly for it to be available to all my readers but shipping carriers are rude. They want to charge an obscene amount of money for a small box. I promise I will have an international giveaway soon. To my US followers click here to enter.
