My family left me

This morning my daughter and husband left on a road trip to Montana to attend a family funeral. They will be gone for nearly a week. It sounds strange but I am actually excited to have alone time. this is something one takes for granted usually. I'm going to miss them though but what a great bonding experience they will get to have. I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful little family.
So I did a very brave thing today and cut one of my favorite dresses hems. At first I was a little freaked out but when I paired it with tulle I thought it looked pretty cool and then ended up just wearing flats which I tend to feel more comfortable in with short hemlines. I bought the necklace at Crimson and Clover Vintage and the tights are from Sock Dreams. Sock Dreams has an amazing line of organic socks made in the States.  The dress was purchased awhile ago at Crossroads.


  1. I love Sock Dreams! I just got a huge shipment of socks and leg warmers from them. You are so brave to cut up one of your favorite dresses. I alter a lot of my clothing, but I don't think I could ever take a pair of scissors to one of my favorites. The dress looks cute with the added tulle, though, so your bravery paid off!

  2. Wow, I really love it with the tulle. I alter a lot of the dresses that I find in thrift stores and have become really comfortable doing it, but at first, it really freaked me out too. The dress looks great and the necklace is so interesting.

    I hope you enjoy your alone time. My husband and I are talking about having a child and one of the things I'll miss most is getting to be alone for big blocks of time.

  3. I like the addition of the tulle. I hope you have fun with your alone time!
