This is one outfit I had pictured a petticoat going well with. I had actually ordered a black one thinking I would pair it with this dress. However, once I tried it on, much to my dismay, this was one fit and flare dress that looked better on its own without a petticoat. Oh, well! I’ll figure this petticoat thing out eventually, haha.

But I was grateful to have another dress with sleeves to wear! We’re not quite into fall yet…but, the temperatures have certainly taken a hit. It’s also been pretty rainy the past few weeks too. So, I’ve been slowly breaking out cardigans and sleeved tops again.

This particular dress is from a new-to-me brand called FashionMia. It’s less than $25, and I’m really impressed with how comfortable and nice it is! It breathes well, I can twirl in it and it has polka dots. The only way I would like it more, is if it came with some pockets!

Panda flats

I am a bit embarrassed to say, but my panda shoes have been hiding in a pocket in my suitcase for more months than I care to think about. I couldn’t find them and figured I had put them in storage before we left for Japan. But, nope! I’ve had them the whole time. It feels good to me reunited with them, haha.

Just a reminder with sizing on them too, I did size up to an 8 1/2 (I’m usually a 7 1/2 or 8), and these fit well. Also, if I don’t wear socks or tights with these shoes, I need to put something (like a band-aid) on my heel, or these shoes will tear my feet to shreds. They’re cute, but vicious without socks!

Can you spot the band-aids? Haha.
