Flares + Flats…and stormy sunset on the beach.


 I’ve mentioned before my love of flares.  It’s such a nice change from skinny jeans all the time.  However, usually they are super long, and I have to wear heels.  So…usually I just save them for the occasional date night or girls night out.  Well, I thrifted this pair last Friday for $5!!!  And…even better they are the perfect length for me to wear flats-SCORE!!Blog Free People Ryanne Sweater 7FAM Ginger Nene Shoes Emma Gunmetal-1 Blog Free People Ryanne Sweater 7FAM Ginger Nene Shoes Emma Gunmetal-2 Blog Free People Ryanne Sweater 7FAM Ginger Nene Shoes Emma Gunmetal-3 Blog Free People Ryanne Sweater 7FAM Ginger Nene Shoes Emma Gunmetal-4 Blog Free People Ryanne Sweater 7FAM Ginger Nene Shoes Emma Gunmetal-5 Blog Free People Ryanne Sweater 7FAM Ginger Nene Shoes Emma Gunmetal-6 Blog Free People Ryanne Sweater 7FAM Ginger Nene Shoes Emma Gunmetal-7 Blog Free People Ryanne Sweater 7FAM Ginger Nene Shoes Emma Gunmetal-8 Maya said she wanted me to throw her.

Me- “How high?”

As I went to look up this dress for this post, I found out it retails for $84!!!  SAY WHAT!?!?!?!  I knew when I found it, that it was SUPER well made.  The fabric is so thick, yet soft and stretchy.  And all those ruffly details??  But…I had NO idea how expensive it was.  Kind of regretting letting her wear it to preschool and to play on the beach, BUT…I only paid $1.50 (YES!!!!!), so I guess it really doesn’t matter.  One of the many reasons I love thrifting!!
