Sunshine spazz attack


This outfit is 100 percent thrifted. Pretty much everyday, my outfit is 90 percent thrifted, but there's always a pair of leggings or shoes or something that keeps it from being 100 percent thrifted. That's not the case here. Shoes, scarf and dress are all thrifted, and I threw them together to make a springy outfit. It's going to be 80 degrees today! Officially, it's still winter, but it feels like we're venturing into summer.


Hello to you yellow polka-dotted scarf. You are beautiful. Let's go out. 


 We took Sunshine for a walk. She can be a little spazzy. Spring has sprung and that means lots and lots of animals frolicking about. Sunshine is all about this...


As seen here. This is the crazy face I made when Sunshine ran after a squirrel. She's really strong for being so little. I had to hold on to that leash tight!


Dog on a mission. (Also: I want our house to have ivy like this. It is pretty.)


After Sunshine's spazz attack, we decided it was time to stop taking pictures and walk on home.


I walked home in these shoes. They're enjoyable. The above picture looks a little strange. If you can't tell, I'm standing on a wall that has climbing flowers. So many flowers this spring!


It took me a while to realize that it's St. Patrick's Day. I needed to put some green on! So I switched my shoes. Green flip flops on an 80-degree day? Sounds about right to me.

I like your scarf so much! Your squirrel story is all too familiar. Lucy would love to chase a squirrel if I let her. I know she's using all her energy to be good and not pull me into the trees when she sees one!

What a great walk in that spring attire! I could hear those twigs crunch and the leaves crackly under those fabulous shoes. Love that face on squirrel alert!

Completely thrifted outfits are the best! Your dog is so cute. It's unseasonably warm where I live as well.. but flowers everywhere make the warmth worth it!

Franca said...

I love the scarf!

I have pretty much given up on thrifting shoes. I had about 7 or 8 pairs at one point, but most were really not very comfortable, and I realised I only ever wore them to make outfits 100% thrifted, so I got rid of all but three of them.

The dog-restraining pose does NOT look good for one's back! Still, Sunshine's got to know who's boss...

Loving the stripes and polka dots together - and then a photo with extra shadow stripes - how cool!

I'm sure you already know that plant's name - its Vinca... probably Major, though there's Minor as well. Its a lovely colour isn't it...xx

I LOVE this dress! Oh you're so lucky that you are getting into Spring now... over here (in New Zealand) we are quickly falling into Autumn which I am not very impressed about!
