Hi pretty ladies! Today I brought you a last refashion for now, my son and I will be going on vacation to Puebla, Mexico for 3 weeks (that's where I grew up). I'm very excited and in much need of some fun with friends and family. One of the things I'm mostly excited about is the beautiful cold weather, I'm cold natured and this heat in Texas is unbearable. My cousin told me it's raining a lot and it's cold, so I'll be packing my rain boots and a coat. I didn't leave any pre-typed posts or guest blogger posts, I don't like those, and I'm not sure if I'll be able to post as frequent since I'm going to be traveling a lot and many times without internet. But I'll be back with pictures of the beautiful mountains and small towns. Ok now let's go on to the refashion, I bought this dress at Goodwill for $4.99 because I liked the print.
I was inspired by this Anthropologie Goldfield Skirt
So I made my own...
And this is how I'm wearing it.
Shirt: Talbots/ thrifted
Necklace: vintage/ thrifted
Skirt: Refashioned by me
Shoes: Antonio Melani/ old
Dark Circles: c/o Ulises <3
I will "see" you all when I'm back!

Hi ladies! I hope everyone enjoys this wonderful day, I bet most of you are going to watch fireworks and grill outside huh? That makes me hungry, very hungry for meat. My son went to sleep over at his cousin's so that leaves me solo, the good thing is that friends at church planned a BBQ grill party so I won't have to spend the evening alone and I can eat lots of grilled goodies, my stomach is growling already. July has begun and the temperatures have risen, for days like these I like to keep it simple, the less layers the better, this linen wrap dress does the trick. I bought it at Gap 3 years ago, it was misplaced in the maternity section and it was down to $10 bucks, can't beat a deal like that. Have a happy 4th of July!
Sandals: DSW/ old

Hello everyone, happy Sunday! I'm so tired today, I tagged along with some friends to do a little bit of shopping (like a needed it). I bought 4 things out of impulse so tomorrow I'll be returning those. I had a great time but I think I enjoy shopping better by myself, that way I don't feel the pressure to buy something just because the others are buying, plus I stick only to the things I really like. Oh well, lesson's learned. I hope everyone has a great week!
Crochet Top: vintage/ thrifted
Skirt: vintage/ thifted and shortened by me
