Continuing my obsession with crop tops, I present you with my outfit that I wore the Blog Better Boston: Style Summit. I’ve had this outfit planned out since before I even had this skirt made up. And it worked out just as good in real life, as it did in my head.
Now, I was a bad little blogger and deserve a slap on the wrist. I barely took any photos at the event. I know. Not cool. I was just too busy mingling and chatting with all the other lovely Boston bloggers to realize I had my own blogging duties! Please forgive me. But at least I had my iPhone permanently attached to my hand the entire day, so I did manage to get a good number of Instagram photos.
But I seriously had a blast the entire day. I met some new blogger friends, caught up with Julie from Orchid Grey, met Tieka from Selective Potential, won a dress from Lulu’s, and learned awesome new stuff that I can’t wait to put to work here. Isn’t it amazing that after almost 3 years of blogging, there is still so much to learn about it?!

I’ve been loving every Megan Nielsen pattern that I’ve tried out for Design Diary. But I think I am in love with Briar. Head on over to Design Diary… I’m over there today showing everyone how to add a ruffle to the hem!

On sunday, Boo and I took a little impromptu outing for some pizza (and outfit pictures, of course). I ended up getting my pizza with apple butter, apples, and feta. Oh, so yuuuuuum. I’m officially a fan of apple butter on pizza. Have you ever had it? It is DELICIOUS.

Confession: I absolutely LOVE the crop top trend going on right now. LOVE. IT.
It’s just, when I actually got around to trying it myself, I felt a wee bit self conscious. But, with everything I have going on right now, I didn’t even have time to think about it. So I braved it - I hiked up my skirt, threw on a cardi (ok, not really. It was 100 degrees out. The cardi barely lasted 5 minutes), and headed out to this month’s Dress Swap hosted by the Swapaholics.
If you are in the Boston area, don’t forget that these swaps are being held monthly! Don’t forget to check out the schedule, and Follow the Swapaholics on Twitter and Facebook so you don’t mix the next one.

This dress is dangerously close to being just too short. I was just about flashing everyone on my street when I bent down. Not that I haven’t done that before, though.
The reason it’s so short, is because it is actually a childrens size. Remember when I found out I could still fit in little clothing, after thrifting in the kids section that one time? Well, when my sister sent me a gift card for my birthday, my first instinct was to head for the kids section, instead of the womans. Come on, you knoooow you envy how stylish those kids are in the JCrew catalogue. Could you blame me?
P.S - I was a little disappointed in how the dress photographed. The stripes are actually a really bright, neon orange. But it’s coming across as kind of peachy. Boo :(
