In the Land of Mushrooms...

I have been staring at this adorable mushroom dress hanging in my closet for weeks now.  I got it a couple of years ago on Etsy and have worn it several times, but never really liked the length on me.  Finally I mustered up the courage yesterday to give it a little snip, pin and hem, and it's like new!!
I have been falling back in love with mushrooms lately.  I think what started it was discovering this colorful little mushroom pin at the shop.
Yes, this mighty little pin was what really gave me the hankering to wear this adorable little mushroom dress again, and I am so glad that I did!
This weekend has been super relaxing for Daniel and I.  We had a hectic past couple of weeks so we have spent a lot of time waking up together and making breakfast, taking walks and watching movies.  Today is Memorial Day, wooo!!  So we'll be heading out for a quick workout and then over to my parents for cookout (that's more like it!) haha.

I was so happy to find this little red polka dot headband yesterday, matches my toadstools perfectly ;)
Headband: Claire's, Cardigan and belt: Forever 21, Dress- vintage, shoes- gift/betsey johnson, tights- WeLoveColors, Pin- vintage, Necklace- Green Eyed Lady

 
I hope you all have a really fun and relaxing Memorial Day with friends or family, or both!  I am so excited to have a long weekend, and will be sure to get some more outfit photos before it comes to a close!

xo, Alyssa

  2. I'm glad you finally fixed this dress! It's so, so cute! The print on it is adorable. You find the most eclectic dresses. Man, I feel like there are SO many things I could take out of my closet and do a little sewing to to make fit me better so I'd wear them more. Maybe that's how I'll spend my day? Hehe.

    Hope your day is fantabulous!! And that your parent's cooking is scrumptious.

  12. This outfit is psychedelic in the very best way possible! I really love the electric colors, everything just pops right through the screen! I love that you're so colorful even right down to your eyes-which are such a pretty blue. Glad you've had a bit of time to relax-making breakfast together is one of our favorite things to do to :) Hope you had a fun Memorial Day! :D
