Morning Elegance

Waking up and not knowing what to wear is never a good idea when you've only got half an hour to get out the door. Some mornings are huge fails, and other times I do manage to pull off something cute.

This was a cute morning. I based my outfit around these lace fishnet tights I found at payless the other day for $3. I though they looked like the Rodarte for Target tights, and were a steal. I also bought a ring because I put it on my finger and then couldn't get it off again. It was embarrassing.

The pocket watch necklace is also a new acquisition, I got it from the etsy seller Love Spell Jewels, who has lots of really cute pocket watch necklaces. Mine was only $10, so I also got myself the post card necklace, and as a thank you gift, she included a third necklace for free!

 I am completely in love with it, I must have checked the time every five minutes today. The day did not go any faster. I was so happy to get home and be able to enjoy a tiny bit of the actual beautiful weather.

My other super fun purchase was a fisheye lens adapter for my camera. It was only $50 at amazon, and is just really fun. Everything is infinitely more interesting with the fisheye!
