Sooooo much!

I feel like I have SO much to share with you guys that I could literally post 5 times a day and still have more to say. So please let meknow if there is anything specific you'd like to read about- I'll be happy to oblige. In the meantime, I have some fun things to share. First, a combination of two recent posts: Fair Indigo and cameos. They've come together in this fabulous outfit:

I'm sure most of you have been thinking that I wear nothing but dresses and you wouldn't be too far off. I do pretty much live my life in dresses whenever I can. They're more comfortable than sweat pants most of the time but they look so much better. I do, however, know how to rock an outfit that does not involve a dress. Like the one above- I'm really happy with it. It's stylish, comfortable and inexpensive.

The breakdown:
Cowl neck top: Fair Indigo, $22.50 (on sale)
Cropped swing coat: Target, $13.98 (on sale)
Jeans: Old Navy, $19 (on sale)
Shoes: Target, $19.99
Cameos: Various antique dealers, total for all six was probably about $20
Total: $95.47

Under $100- not bad considering all those cameos. I like the cluster placement and I got a lot of compliments on the idea today. A lot of people looked at me with fairly quizzical expressions, but ultimately the response was good. I think it's a clever, creative way of wearing what could be a very dated-looking accessory.

Speaking of dated accessories, today was also a good day for some fabulous vintage jewelry finds, but I will save them for a future post. I also received a package in the mail from ShopKim on Etsy. It had some really cool goodies in it. Here are a couple of sneak peeks:

Can you tell what they are? Leave a comment to venture a guess.

Hooray for Fair Indigo! I'm so happy you liked the clothes and the service. I got four pieces from them for $100, and that included organic denim jeans! I think one of my favorite things about the clothing descriptions is that they tell you explicitly if something is running small/large, so the sizes are really spot-on.

This outfit is super-fabulous. The arrangement of the cameos is out of this world.

I love teal and brown together. This is a super cute look!
