It wouldn't be make believe if you believed in me.

How do I love this dress? Let me count thee ways. (Do you think of that quote as much as I do when you go to speak?)
Anyway, it was really really really hot outside and my sister said, "Well, Coury should be hot. She's wearing a floor length ball gown!" But, hey, it's light, airy, and ruffly for goodness sake.

Let's see...have I told you lately how much I love summer? Well, I do. Happy summer weekend. Gabe and I are headed out for a short trip to Palm Springs in the morn'. We really need some time to relax and have some margaritas by the pool. I work from home (full time on the store for those of you who have asked...you wouldn't believe how many hours I spend on this a week..still meaning to get an FAQ going), so it's nearly impossible for me to ever relax at home because it only means work to me and there's always something to do (not that I don't love working). Once we move into a two bedroom this fall, I will have an office and I am implementing office hours so I can enjoy nights more with my little family. Until then, Palm Springs weekends will do the trick! Follow me on twitter for some cheesy palm tree twitpics. :)









Wearing:
Dress: c/o Romwe
Booties: 8020
Bag: c/o Romwe
Bow: Cut from vintage belt

Have a happy weekend & check out what's new in the STORE in the post below! ♥

XO Coury

  1. I wouldn't exactly consider that a ball gown, it looks lovely & floaty. Although, are you hot in those boots? I know I can only handle sandals in summer ... Have fun in Palm Springs.

  17. finding that work home balance is super tricky. i've been trying to find the secret to keeping them separate for 5 years, but i think when you really love what you do, it's kind of hard to stay away. beautiful dress, as per usual.

  18. That dress is gorgeous! So floaty and ethereal and lovely. I have started looking at romwe because of you -- you have so many pretty pieces from there (a lot of which look like they could totally be vintage).

    As for the working/not having time to just relax.... I can understand that, though I don't work from home - I own my own vintage shop and always feel like if I'm sitting down and not being productive, I'm wasting time! It's a hard balance, being in biz for yourself but the benefits are way worth it.

    Hope you have a great vacay!

  19. love the pop of color from the bag! and i completely know what you mean about "working from home" because my life is parallel to yours in many ways [although it is not my full time job i work part time at a cute boutique]. it is so hard to step away from the sewing machine/ packaging/ re-arranging of the store and actually do nothing. i even feel like i might miss some gems certain days if i dont go pop into some of my fave shops for the store! eeks!

  33. Beautiful dress:) my fancy treehouse dress came in the mail last week and I love it! I checked what's new in the shop and the pieces I wanted are sold! I suppose I'll have to more decisive from now on. That peach dress you listed was so pretty.

  34. That dress is amazing! Looks great on you x

  35. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah I can imagine that is an airy dress for the hot summer days. Poeple don't realize that usually with shorter skirts your legs get stickier than when you have lightweight long skirts on!! You are amazing.
