Little Honeybee

dress/skirt, Can't remember! I've had it much too long. Shoes, thrifted. Ring, c/o JewelMint. Bangles, borrowed.

I have a weakness for long dresses. Want to know a secret though? This is actually a skirt! Wearing a skirt as dress is one of the oldest tricks in the book I reckon, but it's still my favorite card to pull during the warm, sunny days. This is especially handy for the shorter gals. I hit right smack in the middle when it comes to the height spectrum, but I'm actually quite fond of the mid ankle length it gives. If I could, I think I would choose all my dresses to be this length. Sewing party anyone?

I'm off to go photograph a wedding in the prettiest theatre Springfield has to offer. I'm actually quite pleased and a little bit relieved, honestly. It was raining cats and dogs all week but today is nothing but pure sunshine and pretty clouds. I was delightfully surprised when I awoke this morning. But enough rambling for one post; hope you have a wonderful start to your weekend. And wish me luck! xo.

P.S. Be sure to check out JewelMint and StyleMint before the end of this month to snatch up something pretty! Here are some codes especially for you..
KINSEY50 – good for 50% off first JewelMint piece, first time buyers only, valid until 3/31
KINSEY20 – good for 20% off your first StyleMint T, first time buyers only, valid until 3/31

And of course, a little tune (one of my absolute favorites might I add) to enjoy throughout your day.
