Sugar On The Asphalt

Hello! Today has been a pretty easygoing day. I headed over to my mom's school again to help her move into her new classroom. It was okay, but there was so much dust everywhere! I was sneezing up a storm. Since I was at the school already, I decided to snap some photos on the school's black-top playground against one of the shadier walls. I got my mom to take my pictures today. Some of them are absolutely ridiculous, and I made some faces and gestures that I've never seen myself make before, but I think I picked out some good ones to share :)

Vest: Urban Outfitters, Skirt worn as dress: Thrift, Moccasins: Minnetonka, Belt: Purse strap, Necklace: Buffalo Exchange

So, my dress is actually a skirt I found while thrifting over the weekend (four dollars once again!). I thought the floral pattern was cute, and I was planning on hacking off a lot of the length and turning it into a skirt I would actually wear. I've seen a few bloggers turn long thrift store skirts into dresses though, and when I tried my skirt like a dress, I thought it actually looked pretty cute :)

A few silly ones too, of course :)

Until tomorrow,
Nicole :)


  1. I love that skirt as a dress! I probably wouldn't have noticed it was a skirt if you hadn't mentioned, because it's a great length and has the perfect shape when belted. Or purse-strapped. i.e., awesome thriftin' skillz.

  2. I love that skirt! Floral patterns are my weakness. You're so lucky it's shape looks good; every time I try to do that, I look soooo awkward! Props!

  3. What a cute floral dress, and I love how it looks with your vest!

  4. What a cute "dress"! I would be sneezing up a storm in a dusty room too...silly allergies. Urghh!

  5. so, so cute! i'm a big fan of skirts worn as dresses! <3 this
