Queen Anne's Lace (1/30)

Skirt: Banana Republic Outlet, $12
Top: Charlotte Russe, $5
Belt: NY & Co., $4
Wedges: Modcloth, $30
Watch: Thrifted, $2
Ring: H&M, 4 for $8

When my sister and I were little, we used to love to fill our house with wildflowers.  And by "fill" I mean, every vase, mason jar, most non drinking glasses, and all teacups were completely filled with our artful arrangements.  One of my favorites is this flower, what my mom used to call Queen Anne's Lace.  I always loved it because in my mind, it was hundreds of tiny flowers all built into one big one.  Unfortunately, these flowers shed like dogs, and before long our parents would be rushing to throw out the flowers without us noticing.  

About the challenge though- today is the first of my third 30 for 30.  This time, I actually am taking part in the shopping ban, and my goal is to finish in 35 days.  I included some breezy dresses and fun shorts, so I'm hoping it will work out!  I'll get my items posted tomorrow!  

To my new followers, and to all of you that have left such sweet comments, thank you!  It really does brighten my day :)  I'd love to check out your blogs too, so leave me a link.  And as always, feel free to shoot me an email.
