Pin from this lovely compilation of Elisa Nalin looks...
Sorry Elisa, you know how much I love you, but if I try a head scarf I will instantly age 10 years.
As soon as I saw this pin, I knew my French Connection mint cardi and mustard high-low dress would be perfect for replicating the look. I do have shoes like Elisa's (but worse), but they're my wedding shoes from 1999 and are now in the dress up bin where they belong. Instead, I threw on tights, and if it's going to snow and be freezing on March 27, I'm going to go with winter hounds-tooth. Sigh.
Maybe one day my 6yo will be known for his angled photographic style...
His name is Ansel so that should give him some photographer cred right there.
I was pleased to have the chance to wear these $2.10 thrifted earrings. They have a vintage lady-like vibe and are similar to minty happiness from Modcloth (for $13!!).
YES you can thrift earrings. Just clean them with rubbing alcohol!
Despite the tights, it was a good outfit for my last day of work before "spring" break!! Woot woot! Before Elisa, before Pinterest, Before Thrifting (BT), I would never had paired these pieces or these colours! But I am happy I did!
