Palm Trees.

Hi guys. Easter is such an exciting time for me. I have so many fond memories of the weather turning warm and getting a whole week off school for "Easter Break" which now would never be called "Easter Break". We always went on a family trip, usually to Universal Studios and Disneyland because my parents were selfless and that's where us kids wanted to go. My parents didn't disappoint me ever and I am well aware of how lucky I am. They are just truly selfless. It's actually crazy how much they put us above themselves.

Anyway, my Easter memories are amazing. Of course I had a ball picking out an Easter Outfit every year. I still do this, actually. My mom would put together the most special, fun Easter baskets for us. My favorite one was a pink and purple tennis racket with the goodies on the head wrapped in pastel cellophane. Mom, you are the greatest.

Well, Easter is next Sunday and we might make my mom happy by all going to the same church. :) I didn't even realize that I am wearing Palm Trees on my blouse on Palm Sunday. How bout that...

It's a beautiful very warm April 1st and I couldn't be happier to spend time with the people (and dogs) I love most. ♥

Blouse, Skirt, Nugget Ring: Romwe
Shoes & Backpack: Asos

Oh yeah, I wanted to encourage you to encourage someone today. Someone commented on my last blog and said that she missed me posting outfits 3-4 times a week. I didn't even realize I wasn't posting as much but just hearing someone say that they cared really inspired me. Not only did she inspire me to post more, she inspired me to tell someone else that I appreciate what they do! So, if you enjoy something someone is doing, let them know! I'm sure it will come back to you and then we'll have a great big circle of love and admiration and everyone will be more confident and less competitive.

Growing up is freeing.

  7. I love your hair style! :) very Cute! Where did you take these photos? Are you on a roof somewhere downtown? Just curious - if you are indeed downtown, I would love to know what you do there because I love going into the city, but it seems like most Nashville locals don't spend a lot of time there, so I never hear of good places to go.

    Have a great week! -mk

  22. Hi Coury!

    Of course we love the outfit posts! They are to die for. The way that you put together outfits is completely delightful and daring! Your posts have inspired me to wear my dresses more often and to break out my bright colors!

    p.s. I'm so excited to learn that you're a Christian.

  23. I love the colors that you put together. Your outfits are always so inspiring.
    Happy Easter!

  24. Such a lovely outfit! The palm trees with the pastel is so unexpected but it works so well. That is so sweet to hear about you going to church with your mom she will love that. I love how you have such a positive attitude about blogging we should all encourage each other and be less competitive I love that!



  25. Coury, it's time I told you how much I appreciate your blog!

    I first learned of you through Stye Like U, but I didn't clue into your blog until a bit later. I love your creative fashion sense and how much you continuously express appreciation for the good things in your life.

    Here's a wonderful quote on the topic that I have posted above my desk: "Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well." - Voltaire

    So, thanks for inspiring me to be more creative in what I wear every day and to appreciate all the fantastic things in my own life. Let's keep it coming!


  26. Love the prints and the colours of your outfit! I just love reading your blog, your outfits and kind words are such inspirations to me!

  27. Coury, i've been visitng your blog for about two years and I, like the other commenters here check it every day hoping you have updated. It's nice knowing that we get at least 3 outfits from you AND instagrams on top of that. I loved it when you put instagrams at the bottom of an outfit post rather than it's own post - it was like a double lot of inspiration!

    You always write the sweetest things and i'm glad everyone is telling you how great your blog is, and how happy they are that you post a lot. That is what made fancy treehouse my favourite blog!

  28. I loove the outfit, the top is really cute and the skirt is amazing!:D Love that color;)

  29. You are so beautiful and have such a beautiful life. Your family reminds me alot of mine.
    You are very inspiring...in so many ways!
    You were the first fashion blog I ever started reading and following...you gave me the courage to start blogging about the different crazy beautiful life I have.
