High Heels and Training Wheels: Who's that girl...

Who's that girl...

wearing a dress?? That can't be Lindsey! Yes, it is! Me! I am wearing a dress! I don't care how casual it is; don't ruin the moment for me! haha I'm not going to a wedding, funeral or job interview so this is a special occasion regardless! I always feel so fun and flirty in a dress. Doesn't matter what kind. As soon as I slip into a dress, I just really feel "woman", ya know? Not mom; a fun, proud, feminine woman. I own maybe 3 dresses tops and they were only purchased for one of those specific occasions but part of my evolution is not being scared of a dress. I spotted this Old Navy dress at Plato's Closet and I just had to try it out. It made me feel amazing so I'm going back for more!


 








Jacket: Aero/Thrifted $8.00
Dress: Old Navy/Thrifted $8.00 
Sandals: Target/Thrifted $7.00 
Purse: Target $7.50 
Necklace: Walmart: $5.00
Watch & Ring: Vintage, given to me by my grandma 

Grand Total: $35.50

There's that jean jacket again! I told you that you'd be seeing a lot of it...this is just the beginning guys! ;)



UPDATE! I was featured over at the Thrifter's Anonymous linkup for being member of the week! How awesome is that?! Thank you Shana, you just made my whole day! :)

    1. Right?! There's nothing it doesn't go with! It just pulls together any outfit and makes it complete. I have a feeling people are going to get really tired of seeing it ;) Thanks for dropping in, Chloe!
