Happy Monday beautiful friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are refreshed for an amazing week; I trust it will be for all of us :) 

You've definitely seen me sport this flirty little number a few times, styled in different ways, but this time around I wanted to try something different by adding a brooch. Pins are currently growing in popularity in street fashion, as are patches. I actually had intentions of creating a statement necklace with a bunch of vintage brooches, but it's crazy how difficult they are to find! All of the vintage/thrift shops I've gone to in search for some, have none at all or some really ugly looking ones (sorry grams)! I managed to discover two and this one was actually given to me by my step-daughter as a Mother's Day gift. Can you believe she found it at a school holiday fair?! I thought it would add some character to this super cute lace skater dress, enhancing the feminine feel, what do YOU think?! Speaking of skater dresses, they flatter every body shape, so when you see a cute or versatile one, snag it, you'll get tons of use out of it because it's practical and it'll make your bod look fabulous ;)

I hope you found some inspiration in this post. If your grandma or mom has some brooches laying around, I would definitely recommend you start asking for those little treasures. Not only will they hold a sentimental value to you, they are super cute on practically everything and like I said, you could even construct a beautiful and unique statement necklace out of them; hopefully you'll have better luck at than I have so far! 

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
