Thrifted Thursday - Orange & Teal

Hi all. Another Thrifted Thursday here! I thought it would be fun to show off one of my thrifted outfits for a change. This is a simple look that can be worn to work or out and about. I thrifted the dress a few years back, however, I am just now pulling it out of my closet - silly me. I love shopping my closet and finding new (or in this case - old) surprises. The belt was also thrifted quite some time ago.

Outfit Details: Dress & belt - thrifted | Wedges - Payless.

I like that my hair and the dress worked out to be complimentary colors (orange/red - blue/green). Off topic (sort of) - don't these photos look like I took them last fall? I took them on Sunday. The lack or rain here in Illinois has caused my poor trees to dry up and lose their leaves. I have been watering them on and off just to help them out a bit. Pretty crazy. Please send some rain clouds my way :]

Insta - finds: Cute girl's dress (I wish I had a kid...or that it didn't cost $18 dollars so I could have hoarded it for my future children) and HUGE blowfish. I already have a small taxidermy blowfish - haha, seriously though - so I passed on these two gems.

Thrifted anything fun this week? Any fun plans for the weekend?

  2. Wow!! Your hair looks fabulous on top of that teal!!!!! *hair envy/dress envy*
    You look lovely and your hair looks so pretty and healthy, I must say! Not that it looked like mine (straw-like) before. haha
    Girl, it has been raining cats and dogs here, but I love it. I suppose I could have a little chat with Mr. Raindrops and see if he can send a cousin your way. ;)
    Happy Thursday!

    1. Thank you!! Haha. I had it cut as soon as I dyed it so I think that helped reduce the damage.

      I am so jealous!! Please do! It has gotten so bad.

      :]

    Do you get your hair professional dyed, or do you dye it yourself?
