Style Peek: watercolour dress + aqua necklace

Hey friends! Happy Tuesday, I'm excited for the short work week.  Today it's officially 1 month to go until the wedding and let's just say almost every day has a task or plans or a hair appointment or a family get together. I read on another blog that September is going to be Sleeptember and I concur...I think that's what I'll be doing too!

Here's what I wore out for J's birthday dinner last night. I picked up this draped watercolour dress from the sale rack at Target during my road trip to Grand Forks for 17 bucks! I paired it with my awesome aqua granny beads necklace from Goodwill ($3!). So all in all, a $20 outfit minus the shoes. Not bad Lenore, not bad....

I also did my first foray into thrifting for actual clothing today at lunch (we have a massive Goodwill next to our office - dangerous!). I've shied away from thrifting clothes because of my size and height but I'm determined to try again. No luck today but I tried 4 things on and I've started thinking of how I can tweak and alter to make them better work for me...that's half the battle right?

Watercolour dress - Target
Aqua beaded necklace - thrifted
Gold flats - Steve Madden

Do you thrift clothes friends? Any tips for me??


  1. This dress is so pretty! love the necklace with it too ^^ I hope you learn the arts of thrifting, and than maybe you could share me some of the secrets? cause I honestly don't get the hang of it, haha ^^ x

  2. the dress is so beautiful!!!


  3. Ahhh yes, the art of thrifting. honestly, i have curves and thrifting for me is usually kind of a nightmare. it's pretty discouraging, but if you have patience, every once in a while there is a gem in your size in those racks. love this dress that you have on here, that silhouette is really nice on you :) xo

  4. i'm new to your blog, and i just wanted to say that it's really great, and your style section (as all of the sections) is really awesome! i love the dress, it is really flattering and the colors look great on you!


Thanks so much for stopping by, I love reading all your comments! If you have a specific question, please email me at lhume1@mts.net. XO Lenore
