{What I Wore Wednesday} A Sunny Plaid

I haven't worn this dress in probably three or four years.
That's right because the last time I wore it was 
about a week before I discovered that I was prego with Monster.

Anyway, when I purchased this awesome vintage dress 
from Ebay I was immediately excited.
When it arrived I loved that the buttons 
are a faux placard hiding a zipper.

Psst . . . check out the temp on the thermometer behind my head.
It's only 9 AM.

Another great feature of this dress is the pocket.
It only has one,
but I think that all dresses should have pockets.
They are so handy.
I am glad that designers are starting to return to this.

Yesterday's house dress is perfect 
for today's retro Summer style.

I actually have typically seen this as a Fall dress,
but this morning I realized that 
yellow and orange are oh so Summery.
It is indeed a sunny,Summery plaid.

Just see.
Dress: Vintage via EBAY, Belt: Forever 21 Clearance ($1.99),
Shoes: Shiek (a little store in my mall), Earrings: Thrifted,
None of the pics show it but I also have a yellow bow in my hair from Nordstrom.
It must be on my bad side.

I paired it with these awesome wedges,

and I added the fun green skinny belt
 instead of the matching plaid belt that came with it.

Topped with a quick hairstyle
and some big green button earrings.

I feel quite chic today.
