18/30: Mocha Latte

Remember when I wore this dress this week and called it Mocha? Well, I topped the dress with a white/tan stripe button up and am calling it Mocha Latte today.

18/30: Mocha Latte
Dress: Coldwater Creek, thrifted, $3.50
Top: GAP, thrifted, $3.80
Scarf (belt): Apt 9, Kohls, old
Boots: St. John's Bay, thrifted, $4.60
Glasses: SEE Eyewear

It was a little bit too bunchy for my liking - kind of like the other day. I neglected to tell you guys last week that this dress is actually four sizes bigger than what I would normally wear. Was I crazy to buy it? Maybe - but it looks perfect when belted and it was $3.50. It was a no brainer for me.

You know what made my day extra bright today? Getting the most amazing mail that I have gotten in a long time from Laurelann over at Opinionated Girl vs. Wide, Wide World! I was one of the winners in her surprise giveaway and she made these goodies especially for me!

Look what I won!

Handmade super cool goodies and a super sweet card that completely made my week... what could be better? That pouch right there is made from magazine cutouts and is stitched together - so stinking cool! Totally something I would wear and I plan on doing so tomorrow when I go out for drinks after work with friends and co-workers.

Look what I won!

And the necklace? Don't even get me started! Cannot wait to wear it & I actually have the perfect 30x30 outfit planned to pair it with! Laurelann, you must know this girl loves orange! Thank you, thank you, thank you, sweet girl! :)
