Wardrobe Wednesday - Zig zag

aaDSC_0031

Hellllloooo warm weather! It has been in the 70's the past two days and I can't say I am upset about it. I currently live in a college town - haven't moved out yet since graduation - and it is their spring break this week. Since I only am working freelance at the moment I thought I would pack up and head home for the week. It has been so nice to get a way for a small break.

Unfortunately right after taking these photos sweetpea got really sick. I had to carry her a block and a half home because she couldn't make it on her own. I got a bunch of stares...oh well, whatcha gonna do? Last night we had to rush her to the hospital. They checked her out and sent her home with a bunch of meds... I hope she gets well soon, I hate to see her with those sad brown eyes. Please send her good vibes!

On a lighter note - tomorrow I plan to get my thirft on (I was going to go today but I need to be pea's nurse)! I love the thift stores by my house and have to do my rounds at least once each time I visit. I want to find some new skirts to twirl in. I also really want to stop by Sonic for some slushies :]

Outfit Details: Top - Petticoat Alley (my roommates)| Skirt - H&M| Shoes - Target.

  1. Oh, that poor dear! Hope she feels better soon. And I love this outfit! I should wear skirts more often than I do. The black/white/red combo is so classy. =)

  2. I love your skirt! Such a pretty shape, and I'm totally jealous that it was warm enough for you to bare your legs!

    I hope poor sweetpea is feeling better!

  3. I just went through the same thing with Marshmallow….she just kept hacking and coughing and throwing up. It was AWFUL!

    1. Thank you so much for emailing me back. I am so glad that Marshmallow is doing better. Sweetpea hasn't coughed/wheezed yet *knock on wood.

    1. Thank you so much! I used to avoid red at all costs but now I like it quite a bit. :] It is nice to get away from everything and stay at home some times.

  9. First off, I hope SweetPea gets better. I know my puppies and my cat ride my nerves at times (really only the puppies - we all know my cat is the love of my life, I just wanted to sound fair) but when they get sick I freak the F out. Sending Get Well vibes y'alls way! xo
    Now, for your pretty outfit: LOVE the skirt and the way black, white and red look together. I LOVE those three colors in clothes, pictures, and living room colors. You look so pretty and Spring-y. It's been fairly warm here, but not quite in the 70's yet. I can't wait for the 70's!
    And yummmm, I used to go to Sonic after school every single day back in H.S. to get a strawberry slushy. You reminded me of that :)

    1. Thank you so much! Haha. I freak out too when my pets get sick. Everyone's good vibes helped heal her I think because she isn't wheezing and coughing up a storm anymore :]

      Thank you so much! I love the three colors together too. I hope it gets warm out on the east coast shortly. :] They are sooooo good! I was so glad that my town got one about two years ago.

  16. Oh my god I'm so sorry about sweet pea :( I hate that horrible feeling of watching your puppy hurting and not being able to do anything... one of mine ate a string of christmas lights and his eye started popping out. I was sobbing on the way to the vet but he turned out to be fine, and pooped it all out in no time haha
    Hope pea gets better fast!

    and i love the back of that shirt :)

    1. It was a pretty scary night, and yesterday was pretty shaky, but she has perked up quite a bit today. Your poor puppy!! That is terrifying. I am so glad he turned out to be ok. That must have not been fun to get out - yikes.

      Thank you :]

    1. The daffodils are already blooming outside of my house :] Thank you. She is doing so much better. I think the meds and taking a few days to rest have really helped her.

      Thank you so much. I actually found it at a consignment shop! I never seem to find good pieces at the store but find them recirculated thrifting :] I have a giftcard that needs spending there though...so hopefully I will find something.
