I can see magnolias bloom. ♥

Hi guys! Hope you had a great weekend. Around LA, our weekend had a strange mix of cold and warm weather. This was during one of the warm spells. I'm pretty much ready for the non-warm spells to GO AWAY. I. Love. The. Sun.

I got this dress and I thought it would be longer...story of my life. It worked out perfectly because this midi skirt is sheer. A perfect match.

I can't really describe how much I enjoy weekends with Gabe and Birdie. So I won't. ♥ (Sorry, forgot again that I could post hearts..takes me back to Xanga days!)









Wearing:

Laced with Grace Dress (worn as blouse): Anthro
Polka dot skirt: Vintage in store next week
Belt: JCrew
Bag: Anthro
Leaf Bracelet: c/o my lovely sponsor Kellyssima Get 10% off with the code COURY
Boots: Nordstrom Rack with no brand name inside (??)
Sunnies: c/o Retro City Sunglasses
Lipstick: Mac "Girl About Town"
Nail Polish: China Glaze "Re-Fresh Mint"


I LOVED seeing everyone post pictures of their Mom's in honor of Mother's Day yesterday so I want to dig around on my computer and find a few. My mom has truly turned into one of my best friends. It's great motivation to have MANY children when I think that they could all be my best friends when they grow up. :) She's simply the best.

Ok, now I'm off to read your blogs! Make the most of your Monday. I'm going to do my best! :)

XO, Coury

  1. Great outfit! I love your top so much, it looks so delicate and lovely. Love how you've styled it with that skirt, so mismatched in a really awesome way.
    I can't wait for the cold spells to go away, either! Nor can I wait for sunny days every day, if that'll ever happen here, haha.

  16. I am loving the idea of putting skirts over dresses, it's great that you point out the benefits related to skirts that are too short! I find I have that problem a lot with dresses from modcloth, I need to find some sheer skirts to rock over them, thanks for the inspiration :)

  34. Oooo, love the color of the dress! A shame it's too short - I just bought a dress the other day that's also a little scandalously short on me (which is a surprise, since I'm pretty short anyway! lol)
