Violet Floral

     Layering a blouse under a comfy sleeveless dress is pretty much my favorite thing to wear right now.  I love that it can be transitioned into fall with a long sleeve blouse and tights as well! Blogging really has made me realize the potential of certain pieces of clothing, as I would never have thought of a sleeveless dress as a "jumper" for layering a few years ago.  So thank you creative friends!

 Outfit Details: Dress - Vintage from the shop here! // Blouse - c/o August Wrinkle //  
Booties - thrifted // Owl Ring - gift from Marisa

     This weekend was a good one even though I did nothing particularly exciting.  Saturday I tried a new to me brunch spot in Denver called Jelly.  I would highly recommend it! My friend and I shared mini donuts as an appetizer and I got veggie Eggs Benedict which is my go-to brunch item of choice.  I then went on a pretty epic thrifting trip to find pretty vintage for my shop.  Let's just say I got pretttty lucky as someone must have JUST donated a bunch of gorgeous 1950s and 60s dresses.  They may get a post of their very own this week as they are too pretty not to share.  Now I just need to fight my inherent urge to hoard them for myself to hang on my bedroom wall just to look at all the time.  I do that now with one particularly pretty vintage dress I got from Marisa's shop Allyhoot vintage a little while ago! And speaking of Marisa, she gifted me this darling owl ring too!
     I hope you guys are having a great start to your week! Keep on eye on the shop as I will be adding tons of new stuff over the next week!
