Pretty in pleats

Isn’t this dress to die for? Nothing like feeling pretty in pleats. And tiers upon tiers. How fun is this dress? It’s a Lulu’s original but I found it at Nordstrom Rack.

Lulus tiered, pleated midi dress, Nordstrom Rack; Red wedge peep toes, old; Red floral necklace, Ann Taylor Loft; Rose gold clutch, Marshalls; Rose gold sunglasses, Ross.

 

While everyone else was shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I was over at Nordstrom Rack checking out the already reduced prices on all of their clothing items. I’m definitely one for a good deal, and The Rack has way better deals than the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, IMHO.

This dress would be perfect for a summer wedding guest outfit. I felt like I was all dressed up with no fancy event to go to. Instead, we headed out to Hood River for a day trip.

It was a bit windy so I added a top later on, but still, a beautiful day for a drive.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I have been on vacation this week and it has been amazing. Not long enough, though. I think I need to move to Europe where they get month long vacations to our week long ones in the States. Or win the lottery…

Dark florals

Hello lovelies! Today I’m back with a gorgeous red and black floral A-line swingy top straight from Ross. Yep. I love that place. New clothing for less, what’s not to love? …The lines, actually. They don’t hire enough cashiers, so the lines are always long as everyone else wants to go there to save money as well. Le sigh. There always has to be that one thing you don’t like about your favorite place to shop…

Swingy A-line top, Ross; black skinny jeans courtesy of Mott & Bow, Betsey Johnson bow bag, also Ross; blingy flip flops, Marshall’s; earrings, made for me by a relative, similar kit here. (They have tiny photos of my mom as baby wearing a hula skirt. Squeee.)

I don’t know if you can see the detail in the earrings, but that is a photo of my mom in a hula skirt on the earrings.

It’s been nice to start venturing out into the world without a mask again now that Oregon has lifted the mask mandate except for health care settings. Which is where I work. I realize there are new variants of the coronavirus out there to watch out for and one can never be too careful. Still, it is nice to see people’s faces again, instead of just their eyes.

I hope you all stay cool out there. Oregon recently hit new high temps of 115 degrees. Yikes. Leave those temps for the states down south of us, please.
