glad to be a florida girl

So, there are a lot of things I don't like about our current living situation, but on days like today, there's nowhere I'd rather be. The air is just heavy with the smell of orange blossoms, and I can walk my dog at night wearing just a t-shirt. I really appreciate this since last year at this time, it took a parka, 2 pairs of pants, gloves, scarf and hat just to take Lola on her last walk of the night.
Also, it is warm enough right now to wear the Jovovich-Hawk for Target dress that I broke down & bought.

It is the dress that's had my eye since preview pictures came out, but I kinda avoided checking out the collection when it first arrived--low funds still plague my bank account! I had to go to Target today and decided to swing by the clothing section. It was very well picked over- everything left was a size 13. But, stuck in a corner of Mossimo shirts was this arrow-print dress in size 5. What luck! I had to have it. It's a little big, but it looks good loose, the colors are adorable and I love the ruffles on the bottom.
Also at Target? Every pair of tights on clearance. Um, double score?!!! It was hard to stop myself from getting more than the 4 pairs I brought home.
I'm sorry to all who are still stuck in the snow & ice, but you can come visit whenever you want.

update: Oh man, I totally forgot about this! I had to return the dress, boo! Even with its supposed-to-be-loose look, it was just far too baggy up top. My little A's just weren't gonna cut it. I haven't found a suitable replacement at all.

I am completely jealous. This is why I am sad my family moved away from Hawaii--or I would be spending my Spring Break from college there right now.

Hi

I just discovered your blog and i find it great !
even if i don't understand everything i feel how passionate and pro you are

I just quitted the press industry to create 3 months ago a blog that shows Paris through street style and fashion week photo romances. It's a new way for me to humanize fashion.
I hope you'll like as much as people already like it.

As i need feed back from all over countries and culture to improve my work, I'll be glad to have your opinion and why not share links to share our work and because i am sure that you share my vision : fashion is for sheep, whereas style gives personality !
For street style photo romances translated in english, clic the "in english" section

ps : if you need some of my photos, I'll be pleased to help you.
and if you like my work, i'll be glad to exchange links

Best regards

Man, the last time I picked up a horde of tights from Target, two of them got holes the day I wore them. The dress is darling, though.

Yay! I have finally found a fashion blog written from someone in Central Florida! I am in Lake Mary and desperate to find better thrift and cosignment stores than what Sanford has to offer, any suggestions?
I am sure I will be an addicted reader of yours. Love the blog!

Well, I just found your blog, so obviously I realize this post is a little old, but...
My Target sold out of all of those cute dresses so quickly. I'm guessing part of it was because of Easter, but whatever.
I bought one of the Jovovich-Hawk t-shirts, and one wear and hand wash later, I got a hole in it. So disappointing.
