Full of Surprises

Dress - Libertine for Target, Shoes - Nordstrom, Jewelry - Vintage
I've mentioned on this blog before how much I like simple pieces that have subtle but frilly details that are a bit unexpected. This Libertine for Target summer dress is one of my new favorites specifically because of those such details. The black color, the eyelet trim, the dropped waist, and the embroidered brand are all surprising elements for a summer dress...and I like nothing better than to be surprising. You want to know what else? This is actually a juniors dress, even though I am, indeed, no longer a junior by any stretch of the imagination. Surprise! See, I'm surprising all the time.

I spent the weekend at more than one county fair (I'm not sure I understand how that happened either), which means that I inhaled way more fried food and sweets than my stomach can handle. This dropped-waist, loose sundress proved to be just what I needed as I tossed back chili cheese fries, corndogs, and deep fried Oreos. Yes, I need to go throw up now. Sorry, no surprise there.

So cute! I wish I could pull off a hat like that (I've tried and failed too many times to count).

@matilda Thanks, girl! Keep trying with the hat...it took me a long time to get comfortable with it. It might just be in your head...it probably looks fab! :)
@La Fille D'Or I totally agree!
