Happy Monday! After intermittently browsing eBay for years (at least four or five) for a second-hand Chloé Ethel handbag, I finally found one at a great price in a great color, that was almost brand new! I haven't purchased a handbag (not counting small clutches) since 2012, so I was ready for something new. With the pleasant cool weather that's hanging around, I paired this light cardigan and bag with a summer top and heels. The summer fantasy is almost over and it's back to reality very soon - have a great week and thanks for dropping by!

Wedding Weekend

Heels - KORS Michael Kors, thrifted {last seen here}
Clutch - m.n.ologie {here}
Earrings - via eBay
Necklace - gift from my mom

Sunglasses - Tom Ford "Anouk" {similar here}
Lipstick - MAC "Mac Red" {here}

Greetings and Happy June! I scooted up to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains this weekend for a friend's wedding. This was my first time taking pictures all by myself in the outdoors and I feel like I need to toot my own horn. Not too bad, Mary Ann! And with bright sun and shadows, plus manual focus and self-timer, no less! But the dress really speaks for itself, yes? Found at Asos (I haven't shopped them in years), I was very impressed with the quality. The print is gorgeous and the skirt is voluminous all by itself - especially when the wind whipped through! I hope your weekend was just as lovely. Thanks for stopping by!

Dress - Dolce & Gabbana, thrifted
Heels - Garolini, vintage and thrifted {nice red heels here}
Clutch - m.n.ologie {here}
Earrings (not shown) - Kendra Scott "Lex" {last seen here}
Bracelet - Jeweliq
Nails - OPI Don't Touch My Tutu {here}
Lipstick - MAC Mac Red {here}

And here we have it, friends. My first outfit post without Bandit - despite the smile (and the fact that it was significantly quicker and easier to get pictures without him), it's just not the same without my little bunny friend. But today I am showcasing this fabulous Dolce & Gabbana dress I thrifted last year (found it brand new with tags!). It was too roomy in the waist and during my attempts to take it in, the zipper broke and I got frustrated and shoved it in the back of my closet while adding it to my mental to-sew list. I finally pulled it out this year and replaced the hidden zipper. I love the bright, cheery floral print and the Italian fit, as well. Thank you for dropping by today, and have a wonderful week.
