What I Wore To Brooklyn Flea

I wore this blue mod look for a Saturday spent wandering Brooklyn Flea and an evening of grilling in Jason's backyard. This "shirt" is actually a dress. Admittedly, it got a bit tight in the midsection, but I threw a skirt on top and was good to go. Obviously I love food and it's catching up to me lately. Jason and I started the series Ballet Beautiful to try and get into shape. I used to do ballet as a kid and Jason likes it because the woman instructs in a calm, soothing manner (none of that "Doitdoitdoit!" stuff). Since starting an office job last year, my natural exercise has dwindled. Thankfully I live in New York where going up and down a million stairs is just part of my day.

I love this happy blurry picture.

  1. Gah you look sooo cute!! I love this look on you. I've also lusted over those PanAm bags for such a long time. Is this one big enough to carry a DSLR, do you think? I'm trying to find a good purse that will accommodate my camera for my NY trip!

    1. Thanks!! I love this bag so much. I got it when I worked at a thrift store. It's Marc Jacobs but it's exactly like most of the Pan Am bags I see. It's big enough to hold my camera and everything else I need and it's waterproof so I always use it when it rains.

    1. Thanks! I definitely need more skirts like this, they go with everything. The exercises are fun but some are are really hard, especially butt exercises. ha

  4. This is totally adorable. I love your sassy 60s stewardess look, beyond fabulous.
    I need to experiment more with wearing dresses as tops. I've seen people recommend it before, but it's never something that I remember when I'm getting dressed in the morning. I could see it really helping with keeping your top tucked in, at the very least.
    Cheers!

    1. Aww thanks!! It's never something I set out to do. I knew this dress was too tight, but it's such a good base. I was about to wear a cat smock with it but it was too short. I somehow ended up with a skirt over it. I do it with a few other dresses, but I just need nicer shirts. ha

  5. I love this outfit! I do the same thing if a dress is tighter in the tummy area I just put a shirt over it and it's good to go!
