purple ruffle dress: ross
black ruffle cardigan: cato
denim leggings: target
black cinch belt: off of a shirt from ross
necklace: gift from my sister-in-law
rain boots: target

so i cheated today. i wore my rain boots all day. they are not a part of my 30 items. but i was supposed to have a garage sale this morning, and it got rained out because it's been POURING RAIN FOR DAYS. so i got dressed and left the house to try to cheer myself up. none of the open-toed and/or silk/suede(ish) shoes i have in my 30 were not gonna work for the standing water all over town so i think i can get an exception.

this dress is several inches longer than it appears today. i hiked it up using my belt because i thought shorter was better with my leggings. i like it.

this necklace was a birthday gift from my sister-in-law who had it custom-made for me. my daughter and husband have birthdays in february which are represented by the purple stripes in the pendant. amethyst (purple) is february's birthstone. my son's birthday is in august and is represented by the green stripe. peridot (green) is august's birthstone. it is one of my most favorite pieces of jewelry. truly unique.


  1. 1) This color purple is really quite beautiful on you!

    2) I feel the same way about tights/leggings! I hike up the skirt. And also if I'm wearing boots. I HATE when the top of boots just mesh into the end of a skirt. I just really want to see knees or something in there somewhere.

    3) I saw your beautiful necklace and I looked to see what you had listed it as because I wanted to go buy it! (Uhhh I mean...after the challenge, of course.) Now it's even cooler because it's special and just for you. :)

  2. I love your outfit, but I have to tell you.... your hair looks GREAT! You have an awesome haircut. :)

  3. This is my favorite so far. I need to get with the fashion program.
