A Spring in my Step

Tank (turquoise):  Old Navy
Button-up:  New York & Company, thrifted
Cardigan:  J. Crew, thrifted
Pants:  LOFT, gifted
Shoes:  Maurices, thrifted

 While my allergies are still raging, my head cold has subsided.  Good thing, since my office is throwing a wedding shower for one of our coworkers.  I'm pretty sure no one wants me sniffling over the cheese ball and chex mix.  Unless, of course, it's sniffling from tears of happiness for our friend.

Side note (kind of): when I'm at Goodwill or any other thrift shop, I always wonder what possessed people to donate the items that I end up purchasing.  Such as with these shoes.  They are so stinkin' cute.  I did, however, realize why they were donated after I walked into my kitchen.  They are SO LOUD and CLUNKY.  Off they went and I put my trust brown Merona wedges on.  Ugh to Maurices shoes.  These are the second pair I've thrifted that haven't worked out well.  I won't have to wonder why they're donated.  Now I know.


  1. love that top, too bad you don't have a close up of the ruffles! The detail looks pretty !

    1. Thanks for the suggestion! I'm actually going to add a link to the post that shows a close-up of the top.

  2. You'll just have to wear those shoes when you know that you'll be in an all carpeted area... Or ONLY on grass... Yup, those are two completely legitimate occasions that happen ALL of the time ;)

    You look extra cute today. Loving the white on white :)

  3. I am lucky because my office has carpet. Almost all of the shoes I love are loud and clunky!


  4. nothing like a great cardigan. love that color.
