Off to the races.

Hello guys! Hope you're having a fabulous weekend! We are!
The sun in shining bright and that alone a good weekend makes. It was trying to break through the clouds when we took these pictures at the park...and it finally did...and it is glorious.

I'm hanging out rearranging wall art and Gabe is working on a song upstairs. It's a nice relaxing Saturday. We finally bought some paint but actually starting to paint is another story. Tonight is the night! It'll be a fun time to hang out together. No internet or tv when you're painting! Only talking. Sometimes that's the best. Especially when you really like the person you're painting with.

I'm incessantly listening to the Lana Del Rey album. I'm a sucker for interesting melodies and interesting usage of your syllables lyrically. What's the word for that in music? I guess i"ll ask Gabe later. :)

I'm also a sucker for sweet as pie dresses. I guess I tried to dumb down the sugary aspect with the olive coat. Did I do it? Or did the sweetness make you sick? :)











Wearing:
Dress: Fancy Treehouse
Jacket: Francesca's Collections
Shoes: Rachel Comey
Bag: Urban 1972


Well, we're off to dinner with my family soon so happy Saturday night to you! I am counting my blessings today and they are aplenty!

XO, Coury

  5. Your dress is absolutely delicious. I think when a person knows their style as you do, it is just fitting, not too sweet. Wearing what you love makes it lots prettier. And the red boots. Wow

  18. I'm so obsessed with Lana Del Rey. She's performing at Amoeba after her full album gets released. I'm so excited for it. I'm tired of hearing the same 4 songs over and over. I love that dress btw. It's so romantic.

  29. This is usual- I think the olive coat does make it less saccharine, but either way it would be adorable! I am loving the barn in the background of the one picture, you picked the perfect backdrop!

  32. You Saturday sounds downright blissful. Mine was lovely too, but involved more cleaning than i would have preferred. Lovely boots btw.

  33. these are SO pretty!! i love the backdrop!

  34. The pairings of this outfit is absolute perfection!

    & I too have fallen quite hard for Lana Del Rey. I looked her up and everything just so I know more about her. They say her sound is called "Hollywood Sadcore," a new genre of music. Also, her style is timeless!

    Can't wait to see the new paintings!
