What I Wore Wednesday THRIFTED!

First of all, I love this dress. It is my "Oh crap, I'm so late! I have 4 minutes to throw something on, brush my teeth and eat a cracker while I fly out the door" dress. I just love it. 
Secondly, it's so flattering. It's a wrap around that's fitted up top but more A-line below the waist. It's bright yellow with detail. What's not to love?

I know y'all are probably sick of seeing this bag, but it's what I wore. Honestly, I still haven't moved out of the carry-on bag since we got home from Seattle last week. I unpacked 5 suitcases of clothes and toys and just didn't have it in me to move back into a normal purse. I promise you, next Wednesday, there will be a different bag. You're my motivation :)

I got new shoes in Seattle and couldn't wait to wear them. They were brand spankin' new at the thrift store with tags still attached. I've been looking for a good pair of black mary jane heels for a long long long time. So happy I found these!! I wore them today and they were even cuter and more comfortable than I expected.

Earrings are City Thistle of course. You can have your own pair, too :)

What did I do/where did I go in this outfit?

A very busy morning at church. I grew up in the South. You know, where churches have 3 services and women still wear hats and white gloves on Easter. I don't think I could ever bring myself to wear jeans to Sunday church. Don't get me wrong, I never judge those who do. In fact, I wish I could join 'em. Unfortunately, I've been programmed to wear a dress or skirt to church every Sunday. I'm just glad I've got some really comfy dresses and now, a new pair of cute comfy heels!


  1. Love the outfit, and you can't go wrong with a great bag!

  2. B-Eau-Ti-Ful!


  3. So cute! Love that mustard colored dress! Great finds.
