We bought some fun snacks and portable food and then walked around Laurelhurst Park, a big, lovely park in SE Portland, and enjoyed the pretty time of day and relatively warm evening weather.
And, here's the dress in action!
Just barely needed the jacket, so for some of the evening I just wore the dress. I got a compliment on it in Trader Joe's and someone asked me where I got it. One of those proud "Oh, thanks, I made it!" moments... =) *blush.*
Jean jacket: Nordstrom Rack (similar). Bag: Wilson's Leather via Goodwill. Belt: Vintage, thrifted.
Earrings: Vintage. Shoes: Payless via Goodwill (similar, similar, similar). Dress: DIY, posted here!
I love this dress. =) Here's to more picnic weather sometime soon!
