continuing with my red theme... i ended up accessorizing with it again yesterday. i've had this dress for almost two years, and it's the first time i've paired it with red accessories. normally i stuck to a navy cardigan or tan cardigan (i did actually wear the tan yesterday with this), olive or burgundy tights, brown shoes. yesterday i was still on my red-kick, so i switched it up a bit.
i even chose a new colour of tights. i'm quite proud of my thinking-outside-of-the-bubbleness lately. i tend to have various go-to outfits, or at least a go-to way to style certain items, as i mentioned above. what i missed most about blogging is the conscious effort to not wear the same items the same way you normally would... i mean, who wants to see photos of constant repeat outfits?? once in a while, sure, you can get away with a repeat outfit and skipping a day of posting.
i own two trollied dolly dresses with strawberries. last year, i didn't wear this one very often. this year i seem to be into food inspired clothing, so it's been pulled out of the closet again. i've been stalking this dress on modcloth for months, hoping for a restock. i've recently discovered that the fabric is discontinued, so unless one dress is miraculously returned, it wont be added to my closet. this was my second choice, which i love. the price of the first was a bit more in my budget, but i've decided since i'm getting a tax return this year, i'll treat myself to this little bernie dexter treat.
i think right now, if i could fill my closet with clothes full of berry/pie/cupcake/sundae/fruit/veggie prints, i really and truly would.
