Taupe It Off


Taupe dress (worn backwards, again! haha): Target, $3.00!!
Leather Belt: dad
Mini Doctor Bag: mom
Buckle sandals: UO

ahh thank God the weather is calming down. it was about 108 on monday, but it's gone down to a cooling but humid 80-90ish for the past few days. anyways.... yesterday night it rained for like 2 minutes. i looked on my balcony and was UTTERLY CONFUSED as to why there were big fat raindrops on my deck... bipolar socal weather! typical!

well as you can see from this post and the last.. i've been very into browns and neutrals lately.... maybe it's the fall weather that's still got a tinge of summer in it (bleh). i love this dress because it was an absolutely deal. I cinched it with a belt because it was originally knee length (which does NOT work on me) and wore it backwards (i love the high neck again!) because the front was a deep vee... well the "back" looks cool now!

and also: MUCH thanks for Johanna Nyberg for the absolutely BEAUTIFUL and spectacular header ! :)

Neutral works well for fall, me thinks. Something about matching the leaves. Or something. Yeah, I don't know. BUt YAY FOR THAT. Or whatever.

And I love the socks with sandals. I'm obsessed with socks and sandals and everyone thinks it's weird! Pfft, THEY'RE WEIRD.

Love the header!
