slowly strolling

Since I’ve been working on “letting go and letting be,” I did the unthinkable during my work day…I went for a walk. A real live walk. And then…I stopped and looked at the river and skyline…and stood there looking. Below is a photo from said walk.

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) I last featured this dress as a pattern clash look (below). For this post, I added a white peplum top to streamline the look and keep it simple. I then layered a belt over the peplum top with a color from the skirt to add some additional interest. Voila- same skirt, new look!

2) Still on my thrifting kick, I’ve noticed that holiday weekends tend to be the weekend to sale thrift, which basically means prices are flat-out the lowest they will be (hence $3 for the top in this post). However, it was a big mistake to go at noon on a holiday weekend. Yikes. I could barely find parking and the store was jam packed. Note to self: go early!

Anyone else going for summer walks? Enjoying the weather? Thanks so much for stopping by readers; I appreciate it so very much!
