So first off, I built a deck today (well, my dad helped but still... kind of proud of myself!) I also made some cut-off shorts.. INSTEAD OF BUYING A NEW PAIR! Sorry, I'm feeling super proud right now and had to gloat. I'm done now. :)

This is such a comfy little dress, obviously it's perfect for summer but seeing as Manitoba decided to have summer in April I had to put on my handy cardigan and tights again. Still cute, but not as floaty as this dress should be. I also wanted to rough up the florals again so I used the studded belt and cuff, and then a sturdy pair of T-straps to ground it all. 

Dress: Kismet
Cardigan: Thrifted
Shoes and Cuff: Aldo
Belt: Gap
Tights: Joe
The fair is in town this week, which means rides, mini-donuts, cotton candy and fireworks! Because I'm a 5 year old trapped in an adult's body I'm super excited about going and already have my ticket! I plan on soaking up all the fair fun (even if that means standing outside in long lines while it pours...) and I'm hoping to win some ginormous stuffed animal and gain at least 5lbs. in fair food! I hope everyone else has an awesome weekend too! 

Lovely: Seeing water beads on leaves. I don't know why, but this makes me smile. A lot. :) 


  1. For some reason I never wear grey (maybe because I don't own any)...but seeing it on you makes me want some!!
    I'm so jealous that you get to go to the fair..last year when it was in town I was preggo so I couldn't go on any rides..and this year we were out of town...ugh!!
    PS. I gave you a blog award

  2. you rock that outfit, girl! so dang cute. :)

  3. I feel like I have this exact same dress in green, only it's a different brand! I haven't worn it yet, was waiting for a.) warmer weather and b.) new shoes to arrive in the mail! happy to see that it looks awesome with a caridgan and tights, too!! love dresses that can span the seasons!

  4. Chanting: show us the deck! show us the deck!
