Even though it's technically spring, Kansas City is a little fickle when it comes to the weather. I know I've worn this black and white dress countless times on this blog (best $16 I ever spent), but I remixed it again with cornflower blue tights and a new necklace I made just for the occasion. I'm loving the black and white stripes with colorful florals thrown in. Elle from The Clean Project did a great job with these photos. (thanks Elle!)

I just can't get enough of these shoes, so I wore them again with a different outfit. I really liked the mixing of stripes and florals and the pleated skirt. I bought this skirt for $6 at Banana Republic years ago on sale. I didn't know if I would ever wear it, but it's become one of my go to skirts in the summer.
My favorite accessory was this headband I made a few weeks ago. I've been working for about the past 5 months on perfecting this thing and think I just have it about nailed down. My goal is to start making more and have them listed in my Etsy shop soon. One of the best compliments I got all week was when Megan of Chasing Davies asked if I had gotten it at Anthropology. That made me feel like about a million bucks.
Another thing I was pretty proud of is actually getting this hairstyle to kind of work. I've tried it a few times and couldn't get it to stay, but miraculously it worked this time. I tried it again this past week to no avail. I never leave enough time when I'm getting ready to style my hair at all, so at least it worked for this event when I was rushing out of the house. It's maddening when you're trying to leave and your hair doesn't want to cooperate.
I wish I was one of those people who could really stare down the camera and do that smoldering eye thing, but I'm not. Instead I usually just have goofy grins. Thanks to Heather from Twenty Something for capturing these photos!
