Whatever You Do, Don't Stop 'Til You're Through

OH SNAP!~ It got cold again. Par for the course for Spring, I know, but the weather predictions have been off the last two days and it makes getting dressed a lot harder when you have no idea what to expect.

March 11

I think I might be under a dollar on the cost per wear for this dress now. It was maybe 20 bucks, and I know I’ve worn it that many times. It works for the office, it works for the weekend, it dresses up, it dresses down. I love it with no jacket and my snakeskin gladiator sandals when it’s warm, and with boots and a jacket when it’s chilly.

March 11

I feel like out of all of my dresses I get the most use out of the floral prints. I could never have enough. I find them so easy to wear and mix and match.

March 11

Our dryer is broken and my laundry has reached critical mass, so we are going to kick it old school style at the laundry mat tonight, only this time we have ripped a DVD (Up in The Air) and put it on the net book. We’ve got a headphone splitter and plenty of quarters. Should be a good time.

You are the queen of florals, in my mind. What did you think of the Target/Liberty stuff? Gonna nab any of it this weekend?

EvaNadine said...

whenever i see florals, you are always the first person i think of. you manage to make them look not quite so dainty and little-girly and i LOVE that! whenever i wear florals, i feel like it just doesnt work for me.
*mental note: florals + badass spikes or chains*

YOu do rock the florals like no other! LOVE this combo.

And haven't you heard?? I declared in my latest post that it is Spring. I declared it. I announced it. Everyone must abide by it. So rock your Spring clothes. I approve!

I realized I have a hole in my wardrobe where little florals should be... I own so many solid things, I really need to get a few floral dresses! This one is adorable, it really does dress up or down so well! Your laundrymat date sounds cute!

Tanya Patrice said...

My closet is floral-less but I'm so inspired by you. And that jacket is so cute!

The laundromat with a movie sounds... fun! Bring popcorn and milk duds.
You work those florals, I always love how you pair them. This dress is a knock-out everytime!

Love the floral dress. Your skin in these pictures looks even more porcelain than usual - beautiful!

I get really giddy whenever you post an outfit consisting of a jacket, a cute dress, tights, and boots. LOVE.

That jacket is so Sgt Pepper in denim. Love it.

Sabrina said...

Everytime I see you in this dress it reminds me I need more florals in my closet and puts me on a hunt for some.

Sounds like a found night out with the husband. Like back in the old dating dayes

I usually stay away from floral, thnking it's too froo froo. You missy have changed my mind. I am a boot loving lady, and I think I need a little floral to soften the rocker edge.

Thanks for the inspiration

One day could you take a close up of your tattoo? It looks amazing. How long have you had it?

You know, we don't even use our dryer except for towels. We were so excited this weekend that it has finally gotten warm enough to hang up the clothes line outside instead of having to use our inside ones. We started hanging clothes b/c it's better on my delicate clothes, but then went whole-hog since we're slowly getting "green"er and greener.
