shirt Gianni Bini dress [worn as skirt] Target necklaces Forever 21 [this & this & this] 

This sweater is [very likely] one of the best clearance finds, oh... ever. Imagine this: me, perusing through the Boise mall, jumbo salted pretzel in hand, ready to throw some of my hard earned cash at whatever I can find [usually this results in regret- BOTH the pretzel and the purchase, obviously]. THEN, I stumble upon teensy white balls of thread stitched to this brightly colored sweater with a price tag smaller than the dots themselves. I'm telling you, last spring it was my GO TO. Threw on a turquoise necklace and called it good.

But now, you see... I wanted something new for my dear clearance sweater. So that brings me to my clearance dress, which- I decided, is far better as a skirt. At least in this get up. All I am reading about these days is mixing polka dots and stripes, stripes and polka dots. BUT WHAT IF... you just want to do it on a little smaller scale? Regular dots- not polka, and a [nearly] pinstripe. Easy peasy! It is all about mix & match & making the most of your closet!! Both of these items are well over a year old, but here I am with a fresh new look. What items are you hoping to remix this spring?

ALSO... it may behoove you to check back here in a few hours. I have a very special post coming this afternoon... :)
