There are three things I love about being a Louisiana Girl: My family, the food, and the music! I’ve always appreciated my hometowns cuisine and nothing made me appreciated it more than when I moved to the east coast. I never put much thought into how prevalent and available fresh fish/seafood was. One of the many Louisiana staples is crawfish and my company has a yearly crawfish boiled for all of the employees. I love the event as not only do I get all I can eat crawfish but I get to see people I normally don’t get to see that often. This is what I wore to the crawfish boil.This whole look is based simple on the fact that I found this vintage Donney and Burke bag at the thrift store!  There aren’t really and deets on the look as I had the pants for years I merely felt like cutting out the knee to them trendy, threw on one of my favorite H&M tanks, and some heels.

Dress: Tommy Hilfiger | Shoes:Cupid

Happy Sunday!

So, about a month ago I saw one of my neighbors and she had on the cutest army green t-shirt dress. I told her she looked nice today and that I loved the dress. To which she replied “thank you, this old thing I’ve had it for years. You can have it if you want.” I said “O, No Ma’am I wouldn’t take your dress”. She said “next time I see you its yours”. Of course I totally forgot about about the exchange as quickly as it had happened. Fast forward two weeks later A young lady came to my job and dropped off a bag and said that it was for me. I was puzzled and said what is it? She said my mom told me to deliver this to you and then she left. I open the bag and found the same t-shirt dress I had complimented my neighbor on. I thought wow how crazy is it that she actual gave me her dress?!  I took the dress home washed it. The dress was a  Tommy Hilfiger and  it wasn’t any where near my size. However,  I knew I could make it work. Took it in on the sides, took off some of the length hemmed it, and that was all she wrote. Wore it to a good Friday cook out at a family friends home and was quiet pleased. I wish I had left it a little longer in the rear, but other than that it was a success.

Side Note: I love earth tones!
