Last Friday, I went grocery shopping. It was still chilly then, at least in the morning, but I was really getting tired of wearing pants. Time to break out dresses and skirts! This dress is one that looks as if it should be cool, since it's a sundress, but because the fabric is a moderate weight knit, it's actually best to wear it on a day that doesn't get above 70°. Last Friday was the perfect day to wear it.
Christopher & Banks denim jacket - thrifted
Merona sundress - thrifted
Danskin Now t-shirt - Walmart
Mossimo western boots - Target
Wooden circle earrings - JCP
That jacket is definitely too big on me, and rather boxy - but I still like it and won't be giving it up any time soon. It's just too versatile! Maybe I can take some darts in it to help with the boxiness. I've already rolled the sleeves, as you can see, but I don't really know what to do about it being too big in the shoulders. Aside from completely taking it apart and re-sewing it (which is NOT going to happen!), I don't know what simple alteration can be done for that. The dress is one that I had picked up at a yard sale last summer; I shortened it to a better length for me.
Since I wore that outfit out shopping, I thought I'd share my best bargain of that trip with you. Dillons had Country Time lemonade mix on sale 10 for $10 - a great price as it was! But...I had a handful of coupons for $1 off 2 packages, bringing the price down to just 50¢ each! This will give me something "special" to drink on a hot summer day, since my tummy isn't tolerating soda pop these days. I'm sad that I can't have my favorite summer time occasional beverage - a Vanilla Coke. Lemonade isn't quite the same, but it will taste better having been purchase so cheaply!
