i am wearing: embroidered dress from seaside bazaar, nordstrom t-strap sandals, foley & corinna bag, belt from another dress, bracelet is from womens expo in del mar, michael kors watch, earring belonged to my grandmother and i stole the ring from my mom about 20 years ago (she knows i have it).

i bought this dress when i went with my mom and eep to see the surfing madonna. there’s a little bazaar in the heart of encinitas that is there every weekend. my husband and i used to live right across the street from it and we’d always walk around even though it is pretty much always the same ol’ stuff. the guy was selling them for $45 but i talked him down to $29 (random). yay me.

p.s. i told you i liked embroidered stuff! and today i am linking up with another mom (the pleated poppy), who like me posts her outfit pics to force herself to get dressed everyday! one of my new favorite blogs!

    well one way to discover if someone truely loves something is consistency and you absolutly show consistency with embroided clothes – which is great πŸ™‚ Gorgeous pieces and they suit you – what’s not to love! Your pics are always so sunny which always makes me smile..

    Love this look! I am dying for an embroidered “Mexican-style” dress that seems to be totally in this summer. I’m sure by the time I get it though summer will be over.

    Love your little baby Foley bag! Gorgeous look πŸ™‚

    Such a lovely summer look! I love that you belted it, too (I belt everything!). Now I must go find myself a summery white dress…
