Strife Turns to VICTORY

I finally found a great way to wear this dress! Someone press a damp towel to my forehead, because the fight is finally over.  As I was telling the gals over at Flock Together, this dress is gorgeous on its own but, since I'm a layering fiend and all, I never felt totally right stepping out with just the dress on my back.  And so I sulked and sulked.

That is, until I found this sweater.  Something about forest green and mustard together is so magical. Kind of like brownies and milk together. Or bologna and mustard. These are the true love stories of our time.

And how excited are we for tomorrow? I'm in charge of the sweets table this year, so come 6:00 I'm going to be armed with an apron and spatula, trying my hardest not to somehow make a batch of food poisoned cookies.

Because knowing me, my pumpkin pie is going to find a way to breed salmonella in it. God, fingers crossed.

Dress- c/o Sugarlips
Checkered shirt- F21
Sweater- thrifted
Belt- thrifted
Booties- Topshop
Hat- UO

  2. I'm in charge of dessert too this year... I half thought about hiring a girl at work to make pies for me. But, I didn't. Now it's the day the before Thanksgiving and all I've got to show is a box of cream cheese thawing in the fridge and a premade oreo pie crust.
