So fresh and so clean

I have two new toys to play with today: a pair of shoes given to me by a co-worker, and my long-awaited Starlette Sparklers from Giant Dwarf.

I received my Giant Dwarf order on Monday and was really excited to open up the package and peek inside, and I wasn't disappointed. I had been feeling bad about spending the money on something so self-indulgent, but I was so inspired and impressed by the quality of the whole package and the personal touches, so in the end, I'm glad I decided to treat myself to this!

Naturally, I wanted to try them out right away, and I also wanted to wear my new shoes, so I had to come up with an outfit that would make both of them work. I wound up reaching for this wrap dress that's been languishing in my closet for a long time.

I don't feel as confident with this type of fit these days, but adding my trusty white cardigan gave me a shape that felt more comfortable. And since it's SNOWING AND 20 DEGREES outside, I added tights. Sigh. I'm also trying out (yet another) new lipstick today — I haven't worn pink lipstick since, like, 1994, so this feels kind of weird but I'm also loving it.

My daughter decided that today was the day for her to take pictures with me, so I thought I'd share a little impromptu toddler action with you.

She is such a cute, silly little goober!
