Mind Games

Dress: Urban Outfitters, $15 // Sash: American Apparel, $13 // Earrings: Thrifted, $1 // Shoes: Ciao Bella via TJMaxx, $30

If this dress looks oddly familiar, your mind is not playing tricks on you... I am! That's right, I bought the same dress in two prints. I couldn't decide between the bold, cheery floral and the more versatile subdued version. The plan was to return one, but you know how that goes.


While packing up my bedroom, I found these old earrings tucked away in a box. They weigh nothing and are on posts, which makes them perfect for my small, wimpy ears. Rediscovering forgotten possessions is one of the few joys of moving.

Cute! And after reviewing both outfits, I have to say that I love the floral one more. Both are nice though.

Okay, seriously I bought both this dress as well as the one in the floral print from Urban. Except you got it for 15?! Mine were 30 each.

Danielle -

I love that you bought both dresses too! :) As for the $15 price tag, all Urban Outfitters sale items were half price for one day only during my town's sidewalk sale.

You're right about there being VERY few joys about moving. These earrings are definitely one of them.
