Hoppin' Around

Breakdown: dress- Cynthia Rowley via TJ Maxx (!!!), belt- Dillards, shoes- Naturalizer (old), rings- vintage, braid c/o awkward breakage bang grow-out

If you noticed that the title of this post is "Hoppin' Around", congratulations. If you noticed it and thought, "Why didn't she just call it "Jump Around" and then start rapping?", rest assured that the rapping happened. And the birthday party scene in Mrs. Doubtfire came to mind. Pack it up, pack it in, let me begin...

Back to reality: I found this dress at TJ Maxx in Hammond, America on a whim trip after a long mid-semester student teaching meeting. It is super soft and easy to wear and the skirt doesn't touch me. I am always drawn to those easy dresses that you can change up with a belt or cardigan. In fact, I already have an idea of layering this skirt over it. I also found a tall stool that will look perfect in my new place! More on that news later this week...


  1. This dress is just too cute ♥

  2. I know all the words to Jump Around with specific thanks to Robin Williams and some donkeys let loose at that house party.

    More importantly, you are adorable duh.

  3. LOL at the rap song and the Mrs. Doubtfire reference. I love this dress! Really pretty!

  4. Ok I give up I am going to have to hop across state lines to shop! I never find amazing dresses like that in my little corner of TX
