There's one rose sweeter than any that grows.

I'm watching Bye Bye Birdie with....Birdie....so obviously I would borrow a title from the song "Rosie".

Just another day hanging out with my family. I am perpetually overdressed! I'm sure most of you are too! I have been wearing these booties a lot, which is surprising considering the heel. I didn't even know this skirt had flowers on it until I looked at the photos. I kept calling it "the wild skirt". Also, I normally hate bright tights (on me) but I liked the little extra pop they gave this day. Well, that's all the absolutely fascinating insight into my outfit have for you today. :)










Wearing:
Skirt: Vintage in store
Booties: Anthro
Coat: Erin Fetherston for Target years ago
Tank: H&M
Bag: Dean
Tights: H&M

Alright, back to work today! Hopefully the sun comes out so I can take product pics. I've got some more amazing dresses this week.

Have a great Monday, everyone. The work week is going to fly by!

  13. That's a beautiful "wild skirt", Coury! It's a gorgeous hue. You pull off the bright tights very well, by toning it down with those darling lace up boots.

  21. Thank you so much for your comment on my blog! :)

    Your wild skirt is great, especially that the lining is pink too! And I can understand your love for these booties...

    Yep, it happens a lot that my friends and even random people on the street comment on me being overdressed. I can't imagine doing otherwise, really, and I'm not doing it to stand out either! Wish everyone else dressed more colourful... :)
