In which I mostly stare at my feet.

 Two posts in one day! Yay! I decided I didn’t like leaving my last post for the weekend as a video. Somehow, I much prefer leaving pictures to for you to look at while I’m off gallivanting around town.

There are some dresses or skirts I have that, for whatever reason, I always mean to blog about but never have. This dress is one of them– so far as I can recall, anyway. I’ve worn it at least twice before this, but somehow I just never take pictures when I wear it.  I think it may be that it’s just one of those dresses that usually doesn’t feel like I can do a whole lot to make it a real outfit, so I end up wearing it on its own and not really making it me.

 And I know I’ve worn it in a haul post– which I haven’t done in a while…– but I’m not sure I’ve ever actually done an outfit post with it. Which is a shame, because it’s lovely.

 I have been discovering that I’m really not much of an accessories person lately (or ever, I think). I tend to pick one piece of jewelry aside from the turquoise ring I always wear (which broke, actually, and has to be put back together), and that’s about all the jewelry I wear. If I’m wearing a necklace, I won’t do earrings, and vice versa. And I really don’t like bracelets.

 Rings are about the only thing I’ll wear more than one of at a time.

 And I don’t know what it was about me and not looking at the camera on this day (I wore this on Wednesday) but my feet and the surrounding scenery must have been pretty interesting.

 I think these are probably my favorite pair of shoes ever.

 This necklace is the only piece of jewelry I own that has real jewels in it. It was given to me by my oldest brother. Which is a surprise, because we sort of didn’t get along when I was younger… but then he did give me this right around the time he started dating his wife. Practice jewelry buying, perhaps?

I hope you are all having a lovely Saturday!

    Hi!!! Yep, you should wear this dress more often -or everyday 😛 It is really pretty and I thiiiink I remember it in the haul post. I think. Yeah, probably. Whatever. Your makeup today ROCKS!!!!! You’re a real beauty! And the beanie?? Awwww it’s soooo cuuuute! (My fave is still the blue one though :P) This necklace is amazing, like…really amazing! Your brother is amazing too 😛 The turqoise ring broke?? Crap 🙁 I hope you can fix it, it’s a great piece… I’m not an accessories person either. I just feel that accessories make the look seem…hmm…uneffortlessly chic, which is good by me but not when it’s fake and as for me, it would totally be fake. I just wear one earring from time to time (yes, one earring, because only my right ear is pierced ahahaa).
    Btw, I apologise for not commenting on the last post. I’ll try to comment later, but till now I haven’t watched the video till now, shame on me 😛 But I will! Now I’m off to watch Breaking Dawn!!!! <3 Yay for laaazy Saturdays! 😀

    TY for your blog, Ben from south of France

    I absolutely love this dress and it looks adorable with the white tights and the red shoes are so bright and bring the entire look together. Also you have really pretty eyes. I am so envious.

    Mara, what a great blog. My wife and I have been thrift store shoppers going WAY back. You have some excellent finds. If you are near a big city, check and see if you have a Goodwill Outlet. Not for the faint of heart: you have to sift through large bins and there can be some unsavory items, but the sell by the pound. Happy blogging and shopping!
