Pattern mix up

Ryan thinks its really funny to take these not so fabulous photos of me, but since I am pretty goofy anyway I let it slip into a blog post, plus Ryan says they are his favorite so I let him have one!

I have been seeing this dress all over the inter webs, and I have been on the fence for the entire summer.  When it finally went on sale I decided to snag it up, and when my package arrived it did not disappoint.  I love the light weight gingham fabric and the fact that this is loose fitting perfect for these high temps we have been having lately.  I wore this to the movies this weekend and decided to pair it with a striped sweater.  I swear theaters are like sub zero in the summer, I have grown accustomed to layering all my outfits, it makes it easier to transition from sub zero inside temps to ten million degrees outside.  Since I had already added the strips why not throw in some polkadot Keds.  All I am missing is my signature leopard print.

Random story about Keds and my childhood,  growing up I had really narrow feet (still have really narrow feet) and I had the hardest time finding shoes.  I remember the only shoes I could find that fit me were white Keds, and being in 1st and 2nd grade I was not happy about this.  I started to hate them begging my mom to let me get anything else, until they came out with a splatter paint pair which I thought was basically the best pair of shoes ever!  Anyway once my feet became a more normal size I got to be like the cool kids and wear Nike/Reebock etc.  I ended up hating Keds, refusing to ever wear them again.  Funny how many years later they seem to be making a come back and now I have 3 pair..including a white pair.  I guess my mom was on to something, because they seriously fit like a dream and are super cute, especially the Kate spade collaboration pairs, I keep seeing so many that I want to own!!
