Congratulate You, Said You Had A Double Tongue

This post is totally going to be one of those posts where I post several pictures of me in the same outfit. I know some of you guys hate that, and I apologize, but today I am indulging myself. I’ve been so bored, and this outfit really excited me.

September 1

I feel straight up out of an Urban Outfitters or Free People catalog in this. In a good way. Last night, I originally styled it with a vintage ecru slip, the lace peeking out at the bottom and over the top. I loved the way it looked and I hope to have somewhere to wear it that way in the future, but an exposed slip didn’t seem just the thing for an office. Even one as casual as mine.*

This shawl is so cozy. Being brown and beige, it doesn’t go with a whole lot, but I do have 2 or 3 dresses I love it with for Fall/Winter. I was originally going to keep it at the office, but I decided not to, because it’s just too nice for that. It deserves to be part of an actual outfit.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you about the pics…

I LOVE THIS DRESS. I wish I could have gotten the other print as well, but I’m not made of money folks. It’s LONG enough without tights or leggings, which is a real challenge for me. I love the floral, and the cut is super flattering. Plus, I love the lace back…

Which no one will ever see as it will always be covered by a jacket, a shawl or my hair. SPEAKING OF…

I’m getting a haircut tonight after work and I still don’t know what to do. I’ve been over it with friends on Facebook and they are 50/50 about it. I do know that I do not want layers. They don’t work in my super fine hair. They just look like flyaways. I also do not want to go short. I like it long. I think I might get bangs, but I think it might be a game time decision. I hate haircuts. So Much Pressure.

*I didn’t photograph it that way for a couple reasons. I’m lazy. And I try not to post anything I didn’t actually wear, so hopefully when I do wear it, I’ll be clever enough to get pics.


Shawl, I think it’s Coldwater Creek. My mom gave it to Grandmama and then passed it to me.

I obviously should have proof read before I published...:)

Awesome! Are the boots from Target new, or are they from a past season? I've been looking for boots just like that!

They are current! AND ON SALE.
Go to Target.com and use the search term "Women's Mossimo Supply Co. Kaiala Leather Ankle Boots" They also come in black.

Love it!!! You look fantastic. The lace back is so gorgeous and I really like the shawl too!

Perfect dress! And I like all the pictures. :)

Clare said...

Seriously, keep those pictures coming, you look fantastic!!

Lauren said...

I can't believe that dress is from Target! The lace back panel is the perfect detail and the print completely fits your style! I love how you paired it with moto boots to toughen it all up and then a fringed shawl - you really do look like you stepped out of a UO catalog!

And thanks for your Newsies comment yesterday by the way! Totally got "King of New York" stuck in my head - and I was so happy! :)

Firstly, I love the Tori quote. Talula is one of my favourite of her songs. Secondly, I like all the different shots - it gives me a good idea of how the outfit would be to wear. You look adorable in all of them!

I *LOVE* a frilly dress with a slouchy cardigan/shawl/etc. Such a cute combo of girly and casual. Plus I dig the boots. I want this whole outfit! Good luck with your haircut tonight... do something wild! :)

HollyElise said...

Love the dress with the boots!
I may have to take a trip to Target for those... Sweet!

Sheila said...

Ooh, good luck with the haircut! Always scary when considering something new.

I love, love, love having a bit of slip peeking out below a hemline. It's just the cutest. You look awesome today!

I think layers can work on anyone IF the right person does it. It's a special talent. That's my story and I'm sticking to it :-D

Style Eyes said...

I love the print on your dress - beautiful. It works so well with the boots.
