Owl City

The time when our local minor league baseball team holds auditions to sing the National Anthem!
Right before I got up to sing my favorite Owl City song, Fireflies, started playing on the screen behind me! Sadly I couldn't sing along with the music video. ='(
To make up for it, I found a very cute outfit with an owl theme. =P
Oh, yeah....And I wanted to do an outfit centered around this cute wristlet!! Seriously, is this not too adorable?! It's the perfect size to hold giftcards and cash while your shopping! (And it's a lot easier on your back too!)

Does this say old-school-fairytale-peasant-girl to anyone but me? =P
The ruffles and the lose, flow-yness in general make this top one of the cutest I've seen in quite awhile!
(And its puffed sleeves remind me of Anne Shirley. =P )

So my favorite color is Robin's Egg Blue..And my favorite article of clothing is a long, flowing skirt. Need I say more? =D And what about that belt?! Normally I'm not a belt person, but that really is very cute! (AND it matches the brown leather of the wristlet! =D )

It's so shiny! =D And check out the cute little leaf charm just randomly hanging there! =)

So I thought the perfect shoes for this outfit would be brown ballet flats, and then I looked back up at the picture of the skirt and realized that I wasn't the only one! Their almost the same shoes!

Out with winter!! (Colors that is.. =P )

So Valentine's Day is over... ='(
Which means I'm officially done with winter.
Well..I might still have to wear a coat..And bring a pair of snow boots everywhere..Including Flordia...=/

But I'm through with dark colors.
No more dirty browns, ashy grays, and as little black as I can pull off mid-winter!

This is the time of year I start pulling out my bright summer clothes,(secretly so no one assumes I'm crazy.. =P ) and seeing what I can match with my winter basics to brighten them up!

Y'all know I'm a fan of the layered look.. AND it is bright pink.... So even though it's from one of those places where you have to buy, like, two sizes bigger than normal to keep it modest, I thought it was a cute way to brighten up a winter-sick closet.
(WARNING: It's from "One of those places! =P )

And as it's from the afore said "One of those places" it is going to need something under it.
Now, I don't know about you, but I cannot stand the little bulge that wearing a tee shirt under a sweater makes.. So I prefer tanks.
I picked this particular one because of the frilly lace on the neck line. =)

I think I'm in love with this skirt!!!
I like the fringe alot! I've always thought frayed ends on denim skirts were cute.. =D
Ahhhh....I love colored tights....
Even though if you wear them with a long skirt and boots you can't really see them...Oh, well...
They're still fun! =P
I love purple. Despite Barney and the creepy mass of goop from "The Absent Minded Professor", it's still one of my favorite colors! (After blue, pink, white, and yellow. =P )

Sling back, wedge heel, hot pink?!! How great is that?! (At least I think it's great! =P)

AND the pink totally matches the sweater!
(It's like they were made for each other! Aww!!! =P )
AND, since it's peep-toed, you can wear these shoes all the way through spring and summer!!
AND the inside has cute little polka dots!!
AND....Actually, I'm finished ANDing. =P
"Duckies are cuddly! Duckies are cute! They're never nasty or mean..."
Hmm...Or maybe it was puppies...Not really sure..
One thing I am sure of, these duckies are super cute on the bright&cheerful purse!!
How do you not like these braceltes?!=D
I wouldn't wear them all at once though.. It comes as a set of nine, and my limit is three.
(Ok...Four..But only on the rare occasions when I can't decide on which three to wear!)
With these particular bracelets I'd go with the pink, yellow, and purple.
Or the pink, skinny yellow, and purple...Or the green, pink, and yellow...
(And this is why I end up wearing four...=P )

Last but not least, I thought this scarf would be a cute finishing touch!
Just tie it around your neck and voila!
The purple goes great with the tights! (Which, as you are not wearing boots, are visible and a very important part of this ensemble!)
(Me liking this scarf has absolutely nothing to do with the awesome little metallic threads...Really...Ok...Maybe a little... But how do you not love shiny scarves? =P )

Keep warm!

A Perfect Valentine's Day Outfit!

This coming Sunday is VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!
(The tied-for-second best holiday of the year!)

That being said, you have probably been invited to several V-day parties!
Here's a party outfit that I thought was perfectly adorable. =)

This semi- formal dress is perfect for afternoon tea parties with the girls, or a Valentine's Day formal!

How perfect are these shoes?! From the great heel to the adorable little roses (that happen to match the dress!) these shoes are greatness in the form of sandles!
Can you tell I'm going with a rose theme? =P
This fleu-rette clutch is, in my opinion, a perfect companion for the dress!

Forever 21 is the place to go for cheap...*cough* inexpensive accessories!
Normally I'm not much on black hearts, (Even in jewelry..) but I thought this necklace was very pretty, and complimented the dress nicely.
And we're back to the rose theme with the bracelet! ;-)

Happy Valentine's Day! =)

Baby, it's COLD outside!!

I love dark denim in the winter!
This skirt has such a nice cut too! Long + full= perfection! (at least in my opinion! ;D )
Cowboy boots are my favorite shoes!!
(And not just because I'm a Texan. ;D )
I wear my boots like this almost every time I go out!

Ok, I admit it. I LOVE bangle bracelets! I bought about 4 sets when I went to Dallas last year!
They're just so chic! and they make an awesome jingling noise everytime you move your arm! (Ok, that might be a downside to bangles.... Depends on where you are wearing them to!)

This bag is so cute, I don't have to say anything.
Well, except that my birthday is in June... In case you were wondering what to get me.. ;D
Just kidding. =P
