Primary Casual


The days have been a little jumbled together lately. I couldn't even begin to tell you what day these outfit pictures were shot on. Sunday maybe? Saturday? Anyway, not the point. This is how you'd probably see me if we hung out. 99% of the time my hair is in a messy messy state, right on the top of my head, going in every which direction. I snagged this Converse dress at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago for... get this... 99 cents! The dress was probably from Target to begin with.. maybe $25? It's cute, that's for sure. It's simple and blue/white striped, and about 2 sizes too small. The skirt fits just fine, but the top is a weeeee bit small. You can tell the buttons pull just a smidge but whatever. It was 99 cents. I'll make it work! I decided it pair it with my favorite 25 cent belt and this ol' yellow cardigan from Charlotte Russe years and years back! The red flats are some I snapped up on PLNDR many months ago for a mere $9. This entire outfit was under $20... not a miraculous feat or anything, but I'm pretty proud of it.

Tuesday night Mike and I headed over to the Cannery Ballroom to see Motion City Soundtrack and Jack's Mannequin. It was a great show. JM played Swim and Spinning back to back and I don't think I've ever sang so loud. My night was totally made. I honestly would've paid $25 for the tickets just to hear those 2 songs alone. Swim will always hold a very very very special place in my heart. Yesterday, however, was one of those days where everything goes wrong. Not just for me, but for Mike, too. It was a tough day but we're hoping that today will make up for it! I'll be working on Honeybean stuff and design work while he's at his job, then we'll be work on Honeybean together and hopefully still have time for the Mat Kearney show at Cannery. Undeniable is a special song, too. It's going to be a great show, I just know it!

Happy Thursday, Honeybees! TiLT will be up later today! xo

  2. I really like your hair like that! And the colors in this outfit are fantastic... are you tall? Because I can't wear any of those Converse dresses, or any dress from Target in general because they are all too long for me and I'm 5'3".

  5. I absolutely love the blue and white striped dress, I believe I saw it at Target (I'm a bit addicted to shopping and going to Target) when it was on sale there. You got an amazing deal on it!

    Your hair looks very cute, messy cute, I have a hard time getting it to look messy cute instead of just messy mess.

    I love going to a good show. I hope today goes much more smoothly than yesterday, yesterday was a sucky day for me too.

    Anyway, long comment from me as always, you look super cute - love the yellow cardi as well.

  19. I love how that is your "messy" hair lol. I try to hard to get a cute messy bun but it just doesn't work out. And I love when Target donates to Goodwill. I've snagged a few Converse dresses from there but lately my local Goodwills have become high and mighty and try to charge like $9.99 for them so I pass.
