So here it is, Merry Christmas.

This is what I wore to spend an afternoon with my family in Franklin. It's about 20 miles out of Nashville and just a really sweet little town. There are many darling houses built in the 1800's and a picturesque "main" street with lots of fun shops. My favorite shop is Lulu. So fun. We got a sandwich from my other favorite place, Mercantile, and cupcakes from Ivey cake. All ridiculously good and fun. Not much I can say fun fun fun fun fun fun fun.

I was beyond excited to receive this lovely dress from Betsey Johnson (there's the website in case you aren't familiar with Betsey and I decided to bring back the whole "wearing a turtleneck under all my dresses" deal. I also did a repeat performance of my "wearing three thick pairs of tights" deal. :)


Dress: c/o Betsey Johnson
Shoes: Asos
Bag: Vintage
Coat: Anthro
Roll neck: jCrew

PS: I added a bunch of my own shoes, bags, etc to the STORE in the "shop my closet" section.

XO, Coury

  2. Absolutely stunning - as always Coury!! Love, love the Betsey Johnson dress, and the way that you've styled it is so gorgeous... the black really allows the dress to take center stage + it makes so cozy & wintery too. Love this!! Happy Holidays! xo veronika

  19. I have this dress :) love how you styled it... it's nice to be able to see new ways to style something, especially when you work somewhere (Betsey J is where I do) and have to wear the clothes! I need to stop buying new things from there every week :)!!!

  21. Love the dress. Rock that turtleneck, girl ;)

  22. merry fun fun coury! you did betsey proud, seriously, in her spirit, & style.

  23. look amazing! it's certainly one of my favorite outfits... but I certainly get you on this one.
    I'm not plus sized either, nor overweight but I'm also not stick thin, and no matter what I do I never will... so yes in fashion the staples start from thin and the rest derives from it.

  24. You look gorgeous! I love the way you do your hair :)
