Ssssssss

You’d never be able to tell that just moments after these pictures were taken, I was screaming bloody murder. My dog came running up to the grass a couple of yards away and began poking her nose around. My dad/photographer-for-the-week looked, said, “Oh, it’s a snake!” and picked it up by its tail — at which point I went screaming and running back into the house. Here’s the breakdown:

Sweater: Lauren Ralph Lauren via Salvation Army
Pants: Goodwill
Flats: Garage sale
Bag: Goodwill
Necklace: Charlotte Russe 

During my thrifting adventures over spring break, I kept my eye out for anything polka-dotted and found a few little gems, including these pants. They’re not something I’d usually go for, but the tiny polka-dot print caught my eye. The pants are surprisingly versatile, and I can’t wait to see what other patterns I can pair them with as the months get warmer.
