Spring in my step.

Hello cuties! Another wonderful warm sunny day. I don't know what I did to deserve such a warm January but I will take it!
I am still sick but taking care of myself. Luckily I don't have a "real job" and I just do my own thing from home or else I would be getting all my co-workers sick! Something I really hate about our country is that everyone goes to work sick and gets everyone else sick. I have been guilty of this is the past too but only because dishonest people who are just hungover or lazy have ruined it for honest people who are actually sick. Anyway, end of rant. Now Gabe and I are going to start this new season of Big Love (last season was boring to me) and eat some mint chocolate UFOs (just me, Gabe hates mint (who hates mint??).

I have a feeling I'll be wearing this hat too much for my own good this spring. Sorry in advance. :) And everything I own that is multicolored stripes becomes the "_ _ _ _ _ of many colors" in my mind...I've had the coat, skirt, now here's the blouse of many colors. Yes, like the Bible story. I had a lot of Sunday School as a child.

I can't even believe I still reach for these peach shoes just about everyday. I have to make a conscious effort not to wear them. Obviously I don't make the effort very often.

Anyway, this was a fun day. :)








(Blouse- Vintage, Bag- Vintage, Shorts- Can't remember, Coat- Ruffian for Anthro, Hat- Vintage, pin- A.P.C., shoes- Dieppa Restrepo)

Here's the last round of DisPics. (skip if you don't like magic..jk..lol) :)





Anyway, it's pretty much the weekend and I have way too many new clothes to put outfits together with, way too many coffee drinks and treats to consume, and way too much time to spend with my mini family. Heavenly!

XO Coury

  3. Beautiful outfit! I absolutely love that bright shirt paired with the plain black bodycon skirt... just love the way you've styled everything together.
    It certainly does look like such a sunny day there for January! I wish we were blessed with the same sort of weather, haha, unfortunately England just seems to want to be dreary every day...

    Love the photos from Disneyland! Disneyworld? Either way, they're lovely. Looks like you had a really magical time, hah!

  6. Wow it looks warm for January! What do you do for a living? I'm home-based at the moment and find it a bit boring, don't you just want to get out of the house? I love putting a cute outfit together and get someone to actually see it!
    Anyway, I'll stop the rant. Lovely cheerful colours!
    Oh and one last question (I don't comment very often), how did you get such a pretty blog header? :)

  20. Love the outfit at Disney...to me She & Him songs play in my head when I look at the pictures of your life :)

    Also, I'm in awe of how this outfit captures such a cool 60s/French Riviera vibe. You bring such cool unexpected pairings together in your outfits. To me they always tell a story.

  21. Ah you are too cute, the blouse and the hat are just perfect together. Also, how brown are your legs for the middle of winter?! They are nicer than mine and it's the middle of summer here.

  45. An offbeat from tradition and formality. Short vintage wedding dress are relatively less considered compared with common cascading ones. Yet there’s always a need to break away from the norm for a little while. Amber’s mermaid wedding dresses favor you an untilled land to show off your talent and philosophy.
