what i’m wearing {thrifted dress}

October 10th | what I'm wearing

Hey friends! It’s Wednesday and I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration.

Remember these thrift finds? I couldn’t believe it when I found another dress the next week. Whohoo!

Although, I have to tell you. We left the house, stopped at Starbucks, and Matthias let me know that the dress is too short. Oh and that it needed a belt. By that point, it was too late to turn back. Ha!

Dress, thrifted. Boots, Fossil {last year}. Let your light shine bracelet. Happiness is Contagious bracelet.

I hope your Wednesday is productive and relaxing!

    Love it! Very cute :)

    So cute! And don’t you love the opinions of creative children? My son tells me things like that all the time.

  3. What a great find! It is very cute and flattering. A belt would also look cute but would probably make it even shorter 😉 although I think the length is just fine. Love it with those boots too!

    Ha! Matthias is your style buddy. Love it! Great dress. I think it would look great with a belt too.

    Super Cute!

  7. You look great! even without a belt the dress is super cute :)

    Just to add a bit to your dialog with your son……it would be cute that way and then worn as a top over skinny jeans! Great thrift store find….fun to know that you can wear it several different ways:)

    Another cute dress! You have the best thrift store finds. Yes to figs! I had a Farmer and the Cook pizza with figs, walnuts, blue cheese this weekend, yum.

    Score! I really like it, I would wear tights or leggings with it and it solves the ‘too short’ for your son! ha.

    I think it would look cute with a belt and leggings or skinny jeans under it too. But honestly, I don’t think it’s too short (sorry Matthias); you’ve got good knees, so you can do that length. Sorry if that got too specific. 😉

    My daughter (about the same age as your son) would say something similar to me. Such a cute age, huh?

    That dress is a killer find! Great outfit!

  14. amy says:

    rock that “short” dress! so cute and what a great find.

  15. Gloria says:

    The dress looks totally cute especially with the boots.
    As Tim Gunn would say “make it work” and you did!!

  16. Colleen says:

    Just a belt, keep it short! Looks great.

    So cute, what a find! Adorable that your son is giving you fashion advice! :) Great dress, wow you can wear it so many different ways. I’m ordering your “let your light shine” bracelet for myself, I love it! I feel like you made it just for me. A sweet little reminder to myself, and also for me to help everyone else let their lights shine, too. :)

    Looks comfy and flirty. Love it!

    Hope your day’s been productive, too! You have lots to do before your trip abroad, I imagine!

    My car had trouble today, so the whole schedule got jumbled up to make room for a visit to the car doc. No like!

    Matthias is right. I am scandalized by the length of your dress. Your brother and hem-length watchman, Dan

    Love the entire outfit….especially giggling at Mathais comment….my five year old has brought it upon herself to let me know how good or not so good I looked in something lol. She mostly thinks if I walk out in a Spiderman costume I would ROCK :). Have a blessed day…thanks for the posts.

    Oh Lisa…that is so funny, before I read what Matthias said I thought “gosh that dress is a little short for Lisa” You look adorable, you just normally wear things that are a bit longer :) Me and Matthias are on the same page. I think a belt and some leggings would be adorable with that dress!

    So cute! My teenage daughter is always telling me “NO Mom!” I think it looks great. You always look great. That bird dress you had a few weeks ago. Now hangs on my closet. :)
