Pretty, Polished, Perfect.: Puddle Jumping

Puddle Jumping

I'm not going to lie.  I was a young girl in the 80s.  I adored Debbie Gibson.  I thought Cyndi Lauper was the queen of punk (in my defense, I was 5.)  For Halloween, I wanted to dress in scruffy tights with holes, a ruffly mini-skirt and high heels - and I really, really wanted to wear those fingerless lace gloves.  I'd like to think I've come a long way since then. 

I also think that might be the reason why I just cannot bring myself to indulge in some of the current 80s trends!!  You know, like colored tights. 




Umbrella: Totes (via Target)
Jacket: Old Navy
Dress: Thrifted (there is no tag)
Bracelets: Target
Tights: Vera Wang
Socks: Vera Wang
Boots: Charlotte Russe








I had to add this one - as a wanna-be photographer, I love the reflection in the puddle!!

Agreed the layered socks over the tights is great! But those Target bracelets you have been layering all week are great. I WANT too!

Thanks! I just thought it was a cool picture - I didn't even do it on purpose (thought next time I will, now that I know!)

Thanks! You should have seen me in Target with my arms full of bracelets. I had a hard time deciding which ones I really wanted, lol!
