i found this tucker for target dress all by itself on a clearance rack in nevada and fell for its fancy sneaky ruffles, odd sleeve length, and navyness.  i'm sure it will be belted in the future, but for today not so much.

scarf week header dash dot dotty dashdotdotty
  • my little bloggy is turning one this week!  
  • i am declaring it scarf week!  (not to be confused with shark week-- this one has less teeth and more patterns.) over the past few years i have been picking up scarves along my thrifting travels and i don't wear them nearly enough.  
  • in honor of the occasion, i'm going to have a little giveaway this week of some of my favorite things.

      usa map travels

      last week i flew off to nevada to spend time with my sister's adorable family, eat icecream, and jump on hotel beds. because the trip sounded so awesome, the boy decided to come along, except his goals were to spend time with a stack of adorable poker chips, eat peanutbutter icecream, and jump on hotel beds.  

      oh, and it was cold.  like not pool weather.  and it rained.
