I Caught the Sun

dress: H&M. tights: target. shoes: thrifted. necklace: vintage. bag: vintage.
Hello lovely readers. I've been without internet for the past few days, so my blogging has been nonexistent. But it is finally back, so I thought I would share with you my outfit from yesterday's Frank Lloyd Wright house walk. Before I begin talking about the event, or even my outfit, I want to share a little story with you. Many of you know that I am quite a shy person. I am perfectly fine with my shy nature, until I am put into an awkward or uncomfortable situation, then I just don't know how to act. However lately, I realized that I have been reacting to all of these situations the same way, by closing my eyes. I don't know how this is helpful, and I am well aware that other people can still see me, but I just pretend I'm not there. Yesterday, when I was in an alley taking the first couple of pictures, a car turned in and almost ran me over. I believe alleys are for picture taking, but I guess that's not their real function. Anyway, I moved over to the wall and closed my eyes. I'm sure the driver thought I was a complete nutcase, I know I looked like one. So I just want to thank my timid behavior for all of the strange looks that I have been receiving lately. 

Enough about my odd behavior, let's move onto my shoes. I found them the other day while thrifting, and I couldn't be more excited. It's not that often that I find flats that I like. Well really, it's not that often that I find flats that I like that are cheap. I'm not really a big spender on shoes. I either get them as a gift, or buy them when they are on sale, but thrifting these multicolored flats was exciting. I wore them to a house walk I went to last night. I always find it interesting to see other people's homes, but these were some of the fanciest places I had ever seen. I think every one had a whole room for just the piano.

I hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday.
Until next time, Mandy


  1. These shoes are stunning. I'm so in love <3
    And the white tights looks so good, I never wear white tights, but now I have an idea how to combine it :)

    Well, closing your eyes when you feel uncomfortable is weird...but who cares? Everyone is weird in some way, right?

  7. You are too cute! I love all these photos and your hair is perfection.
    The story is so sweet and relatable, as someone is also shy, I can relate. ALthough, I don't recall closing my eyes when I get nervous. I just twitch. Like my legs or hands. LOL Awkward.
