Fashion, Formal


Well friends, this will probably be the last of the summer outfits. Although I had a terrific summer, I’m not too thrilled about the change in seasons this year. Don’t get me wrong, there are few things more beautiful than Ohio autumns, but it feels as though it snuck up on me and there are still many tube dresses and platform sandals to be worn. Soon my favorite weed bush  tropical inspired backdrop will turn brown and I will be back in the parking garage for photos. Oh, blogger problems.  

Remember this dress from my Garden Collection for Goodwill? I assumed it would never fit me considering the friend who modeled it in the fashion show is about half my size. This just may be the magical pink dress because I have no clue how I managed to pull it off. I love that the kimono trend made a comeback this summer; I borrowed this kimono from my sister seven years ago and never returned it. #sorrysis.




Kimono: Forever 21 (seven or eight years ago)
Dress: Express, thrifted $5
Clutch: thrifted, less than $5 because I’d never spend more than $5 on a clutch
Shoes: Aldo nearly 10 years old



  • I loved the kimono trend too! They're all so pretty & unique 🙂 perfect with this dress. Can't wait to see how your style adapts to the colder months again! 😀


  • We just moved back to Ohio (N. Canton) after living in Florida for 3 years and I am so ready for fall weather. I missed my sweaters. Your sister is going to ask for that kimono back because it's super cute!

  • I'm with you. I really hate the change of the seasons and the cold air and the world turning from green to brown. It's sad, and I wish summer would stick around a bit longer.

    The pink dress is fabulous on you – glad some magic happened and you were able to pull it off!

  • You are gorgeous! Such stunning hair and eyes. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.
