I'll be your champion and you will be mine + Sparkly Bag Giveaway

Lucky to live another fun day.
You would probably say that most days my outfits dip a little into the too "sweet" territory. But come on, I sure as heckfire am not about to apologize for that! When I dress sweeter, I act sweeter (and eat sweeter things...hehe). Try it sometime! :) I started to doubt myself on whether "sweeter" is a word or not after staring at it for too long. "not salty, sour, or bitter." I like that!

I love the cut of this blouse and the scalloped hem on this skirt. I also love Silverlake more now that we've moved away. There's something about the hills and the views...and those gorgeous fire hydrants. Ha.

I'll give you one guess as to when we took these pictures. Good guess! Yes, it was during our coffee and dog park run! :)








(Blouse, skirt, & mini bag- Vintage, Plush tights- AA, Shoes- Farlyrobin via Gilt, Belt- Zara, Coat- Ruffian for Anthropologie)

So, Gabe and I were craving something sweet (actually just me but I didn't hear him complaining) so we tried this cute little waffle dessert place that's just two hops, one skip, and three jumps from our loft! It was super yummy and I can't wait to try all the different waffle/ice cream combos. Gah! I have a strong suspicion that we'll end up there most nights. They also have tons of iced teas and I got a Cherry Lemonade. It was strange and wonderful. We're really loving living downtown. If only we had a little yard for Birdie I would want to stay here.

Oh, I almost forgot! I want to give this sweet little bag away to one of you lovely people. My mom and I found it and bought it just to give to one of you. I had to wear it first to show you what it looks like though. :) Just comment below to enter. I'll choose someone randomly on Jan 10. :)

Ok, see ya guys tomorrow.

XO.

  1. Hi Coury! So, random fact about myself: I'm quite obsessed with waffles. And this post just about made my evening so much better. Thank you for letting me know about this new waffle place that I have to drag Geo to. I'm sure I'll love it. I also love the brightness of the dress. You always look so darn amazing.

  2. I love your use of color! I wish I could incorporate more color into my wardrobe, but I'm stuck in my navy blue and black phase at the moment. For now, I'll just gather inspiration from your daily outfits!

  4. so this isn't my first time to your blog, but it is my first comment! i have to say that i'm a complete sucker for scalloped edges and any shade of green that falls close to seafoam :]

    and that bag looks like it'd be the most perfect little evening accessory!

  5. Dressing (and acting!) sweet is definitely a good thing! And your style is who you are...and you are wonderful! Plus, what you wear always goes perfectly with your sweet blond hair, pink lips and even pinker cheeks! (Now I'm staring and re-staring at "pinker" like you did with "sweeter".)

    That's such a pretty little bag, too! (:

  6. I thought to myself, "Coury probably hasn't posted yet, but maybe I need to see her Disneyland pics again..." But you did post, yay :) Cute everything! Also, I hardly ever know what songs your lyric-titles come from (because I'm so bad at listening to lyrics) but I do know this one because I had this tape on in my Walkman nonstop when I was 11.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I've been reading Your blog for some time now and every time I'm about to post a comment, there are so many things on my mind I would want to write that I give up immediately. So I'm using Your giveaway as a kick to start commenting, haha. And that bag looks soo happy ( happy people make their possesions happy, I guess).
    Also, I checked the waffles website, looked at some photos of ice cream and now I've been hungry for them for most of the evening.
    Besides, I admire Your style, but I'll probably tell You that another time, when my comment won't be so awfully long already :D

    ReplyDelete
  78. I adore your pretty, & bright way of dressing. You're good at making 'cool girl' type looks very feminine. and the colors-yes. excellent combinations.

  81. Hello Miss Coury!

    I frequently skip around your blog, you are one of my very most favourite style bloggers. I must check in on your blog at least once per day!

    The scalloping on your skirt this post is super sweet! Recently i discovered my sewing machine is capable of scalloping, Huzzah!

    the little gold bag up for grabs is beautiful, i love the metal-joiny makeup of that type of bag! why dont they make those anymore?!

    hope you have a lovely week ahead :)
