Penny's Blog Debut

It was a gorgeous 76 degrees here in New Hampshire this afternoon! I hope this weather lasts until Halloween so my kids don't have to trick-or-treat in snowsuits.

Dress: Anthropologie Two Wheeler Shirtdress
Tights: George (from Walmart!)
Shoes: Charlotte Russe
Cat: Her name is Penny

These are my favorite shoes. Interestingly, I don't think I ever purchased cheap shoes before these. My younger cousin, Samantha, came to visit this summer and took me to stores that I feel like I am too old to shop in. I saw these babies in Charlotte Russe and they happened to be just my style. Much to my husband's dismay, I bought 6 pairs of (inexpensive) shoes during Samantha's 2 week visit. :)

About a week ago, I went temporarily insane and bought shitloads of tights from Walmart. I shop there maybe twice a year and have never ventured into their apparel department before then I am pleased to say. I bought about 8 pairs ranging in price from $3.50 to $5.00. I must say that they are virtually indestructible which is more than I can say for the $20 pair I got from Banana Republic that instantly snagged on their first wear. *Sigh*


  1. Oh, how I love the two wheeler shirt dress. So worth the replacement hunt when you had your unfortunate accident. So very worth it! You're adorable, friend. <3

  2. Thanks for the compliments, ladies.

    Cell, this dress is my absolute fave. I got bleach on the first one and pouted until Eric bought me another. :P
