{outfit} Thrifted Safari Print Dress

Temperatures are on the decline but I still have some hot weather day outfits to share before we get to my favorite - jeans and sweaters! I will be sad to "put away" all my sandals though! I say that in quotes because in reality they stay out on display all year thanks to my closet room.


 This is one of my favorite thrifting buys/alterations. I bought it back in 2012 for $6 and it was super long. I wore it that way a couple times and then decided to have my Mom shorten it so I would wear it more. I probably should have left it a little longer but I think we had to go all the way to the top of the slits so it wouldn't be noticeable. 


I wore this to go for a walk in the park and then Christian and I headed to Brick + Wood to pick up a pizza! We then drove to a parking lot and ate it in the car because we didn't want it to get cold on the way home, haha. It was soooo good! Definitely recommend if you're near Fairfield.

  4. I love the post-alteration version of this. I mean I think it looked great long as well but the shorter length really suits you.

  6. Love that the dress is still around and living it's shorter life, haha. I don't blame you for eating the pizza in the car, I picked up a pie from modern on Friday and it was so cold by the time I got home, it was sad.

  7. I love the style, structure, and the print of this dress. Definitely a classic piece. I can’t believe the price point.

  8. This dress is so fun! I love how you styled it with the denim and those leopard print sandals!
