Hello! My blog schedule has gotten a little out of whack recently; my outfit posts seem to be delayed by about a day or so. Since I'm home, it's incredibly easy to snap a few photos daily but I can't always blog those photos that day. These photos were taken of my outfit yesterday. 

The weather was surprisingly sunny and warm for a day in mid-December. It reached the high 50s/low 60s and is the kind of perfect weather that I dream about daily. For the beautiful weather, I slipped into a gorgeous burgundy, paisley dress. The peasant shape/style, 70's inspired print and rich maroon color of this dress have me swooning over it. I purchased it for about $25 at Forever 21 a while back and am still very pleased that I did. I styled it with a pair of cozy gray thigh highs and black heeled booties. 

I switched things up with my accessories and ditched my usual cluster of rings and necklaces for an assortment of vintage pins. I love pairing a bunch of quirky pins together for a completely unique look. One small pin on its own may not make a bold statement but pairing a few together certainly will. For this look, I grabbed my golden U.S. pin, Canada pin, vintage stone brooch, Beta club pin, simple golden pin and shiny, golden horse pin. 

Based on the clothes I brought back to Richmond and from my past several outfits, I've concluded that 90% of my wardrobe consists of pretty dresses and thigh highs. And I'm quite content with that.
