OOTD: A little staycation.

Sorry about the non-warned hiatus I took, readers! I do hate excuses, but I'll offer one anyway: my 17-year old sister was in town until today and spent a long weekend with us. Despite her pleading to "do a blog and let me take the pictures!", I decided to just resume my regularly scheduled posting today instead.   :)  I guess on the topic, I'll mention that this coming weekend will also require a little hiatus because I'm headed to DC on Friday. It shouldn't interrupt all that much, since I don't do too many weekend posts as it is, but just an FYI. I can't wait to report back about all the fun I have, though!

Here's a quick OOTD-- I decided to take my rarely-worn Modcloth dress and make it into a top instead of a short, tight dress. Made it more office-appropriate, I think! Plus, I do love a kinda-retro outfit every once in a while (and yes, retro does equal high waisted, flowy and knee length for me). I revealed my little secret in one of the following pictures.... hehe...

Top/dress: Modcloth, from this past winter
Skirt: Banana Republic white linen skirt
Necklace: F21 teardrop necklace
Shoes: Michael Michael Kors cage sandals


  1. Great idea and re-use of something that otherwise wasn't getting worn. That necklace is fabulous...really ties it all together.

  2. Oh my goodness, I LOVE this! I love the lacy shirt (dress!) and the flowy white skirt is SO pretty and girly. The necklace is a fantastic addition to polish off the outfit.

    I really want a white skirt like that now...
