Hey Marlen, The Beatles called- they want their hair back. Excuse me while I pinch the bridge of my nose, but the wind does embarrassing things to my hair. Specifically, it makes wings grow from the side of my head. Not cool Mother Nature, not cool. 

But mop frustrations aside, how cute is my Shop Vintage Minnie novelty print dress? When I first saw the description it said it was "zebra print" and I got a quick flashback to my cousin's bedroom circa sophmore year of high school, but when I clicked on it I was so pleasantly surprised. It wasn't Jersey Shore's wet dream- it actually had zebras all over it! I couldn't wait to take it out for a spin, and I decided to go neutral with it and pair it with some mustard tights and my camel colored peacoat. 

Speaking of peacoats, I got this one for five dollars at a thrift store. It's exactly what I was looking for, and seriously, they had about ten more identical replicas hanging on the hangers. If you're in the market for one, I suggest you go hunting!

  1. The dress is amazing, your hair is early-McCartney fab, and the cardigan is the perfect touch. :) Nothing beats a great print, does it?

  2. I find the best coats at thrift stores. This one is very cute, season appropriate and will probably end up in a lot of use. I also think the print on your dress is super cute!
