Little Dress on the Prairie

Today I felt a little Laura Ingalls Wilder in this getup, but I kinda liked it. If my Dad starts calling me Half Pint I’ll know I have a problem. Anyone else read Little House on the Prairie books as a kid? I LOVED them, perhaps even more than the Babysitter’s Club.

Anywho, this is a dress Ross got from the sample closet at L.L.Bean Signature. I’m not sure it would ever occur to me to buy it myself, but I’m glad he picked it up. Its a little school marmish, but with heels I think it works. It’s also soooooper soft and cozy (silk flannel = yes.)

Dress: L.L.Bean Signature (funny, I’m just noticing I styled it exactly like they did)
Shoes: Audrey Brooke (DSW)
Gray tights: I have no idea. Probably at Marshall’s.
Bag: Urban Outfitters years ago.
Wood ring: H&M

Halloween is this weekend – so excited. I’m dressing as a candy raver (see the bottom of this post for my inspiration). Ross is going as a juggalo (Insane Clown Posse fan), so I’m thinking we may be contenders in the Best Couple contest for “90′s social outsiders finding love.” Yes.

Any fun Halloween plans?

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
