Orange is the new Black

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to escape the cold, gray, and snowy weather of Chicago, pack up my sundresses, flip flops, and swimsuit and head to sunny, beautiful Florida! It was so amazing to dip my toes in the sand, walk on the beach, and work outside in the warm sun. I had to take the pictures of this dress inside because its such a hot colored dress and I wanted to capture its true essence. I have held onto this dress for many many years, but Im ready to pass it on to the next person to wear and love, so I put it up for sale at my Etsy Shop HERE

I also wanted to show off the new earrings I made, shown in these pics. Also for sale at my Etsy Shop HERE
