The sun is out, the daffodils are in flower and the birds are nesting so it had to be time for a pretty floral dress.
I found this dress in an op shop (thrift) recently and couldn’t resist it’s pretty, small floral print, fitted v-neck bodice and full skirt.
It is a bit shorter than I would normally wear so I will probably wear tights or leggings or maybe be daring and show a little leg! Lol!!
I’m very happy that the skirt is lined because the fabric would likely be a bit too transparent for my liking.
Manifesting My Wishes!
As part of the healing process I’ve been on I’ve been doing this thing where I focus on what I’d really like to have in my life.
So I’d been focusing on getting a small cross-body bag in a tan neutral colour and also one in natural wicker and the day I went into the op-shop I was able to find both!
I couldn’t believe it when I also found the cute tan leather belt with pretty flowers embroidered on it as well – another thing I had been focusing on to wear with my jeans, although I wore it with this dress and it looked totally fabby.
All the things I found ended up costing me a tiny $45 and that was for the dress, two bags, three belts and a couple of face masks – and everything was brand new, including this dress!
Cuteness Overload and Boot-Scooting Fun!
Seriously though how cute is this little bag and how well does the outfit all come together with the denim jacket, fishnet tights and booties?
I have some tan western booties but went with the chocolate ones because it’s still pretty chilly at this stage and these look warmer than the lighter ones, if that makes sense?
There’s a definite boot-scooting vibe going on here and I really like it!!

FYI—I’ve stopped posting the political stuff. It was getting in the way! I am continuing with human interest and things concerning Christians, though. Jonathan
