What I Wore: Floral Fun

I picked up this dress while shopping in Flagstaff this weekend at a little local boutique. My mom actually spotted it on the sale rack, and I'm so glad she did! I love the color, and I think I'll be able to wear it as a top, too. I'm definitely one of those people that want to wear their latest purchase right away, so when I got dressed for lunch with some old friends, I decided I'd wear this! I think it might have been cuter with a gray belt and black shoes, but I wanted to wear this morning more than I wanted to wait find the perfect belt! I still love the way it turned out though, and the fabric is thin enough that it was cool, even in the Arizona heat!

Do  you "save" new clothes, or do you wear them as soon as you can?


  1. I'll do both. Usually when I go shopping, I buy more than one thing, so I'll wear one right away and hoard the others! :)

  2. Your mom has a good eye :)

    I want to wear everything immediately, which is kind of a problem when most of your stuff is thrifted; I always have to wash secondhand things before I'll wear them. But I have been known to buy things in regular stores and change into them before I leave. No "saving" here!

  3. That's a very very cute dress!
    In general, I wear them right away if the opportunity to do so arises :).

  4. Oh, this is so cute! I absolutely love the colors! =) I am definitely a saver, haha- I like to always have at least one new thing in my closet, so my friends make fun of me because it will sometimes be months before I wear a new item!
