Little Miss Bad Attitude


Well friends, it's Thursday! We didn't really have any agenda today so we took some photos out in the hall (Mike likes experimenting with lighting) and then we headed out for Franklin. We grabbed some food and stopped by the mall. Such a bad idea since Forever 21 is overrun with cute things right now (and I managed to walk out with only 3 dresses). Now I'm formatting the sponsor post to go up a bit later and relaxing as we decide what to use the rest of our evening for. Looks like Harry Potter 7 and Nurse Jackie are in the lead! (Anyone else watch Nurse Jackie?! We started on Monday and are already in the middle of season 2! Zoey is my favorite! She's so funny!) 

The blog title is because Mike is being a Butthurt Betty right now! ;) We're talking about his birthday coming up (Cinco de Mayo!) and I'm being difficult and telling him I'm not getting him any presents! haha I wanted to name it "Pretty Pairing of Patterns" but he insisted that we went with this instead! Such a silly fella!

Anyway, this is the dress I ordered from TopShop for my birthday (I also got it in burnt umber!). It's 2 sizes too big but luckily you can't really tell when it's belted and I'm wearing a cardigan. It's also nice that it's big so I've got room for these big ol' hips! The length is a bit longer than on the correct size, too, so that's a bonus! The cardigan is from H&M when I was in NYC last month. They had them buy one get one free so of course I snagged two of this pattern (and 2 others!) because I really loved it. With fast fashion, I've learned to buy multiples if you love it! The belt is a 25 cent Goodwill grab!

I ended up snagging a pair of new black bow Blowfish flats today and a boater hat! I wore those with this outfit but that was after pictures were taken!

We're off to do something fun and snazzy! Hope you have a lovely day! xo

PS; Thank you SO much for the sweet comments about being ModCloth's Blogger of the Moment! Like a blogging dream come true! Please let me know if you bought the dress! I'd love to do a little dress challenge on the blog and feature you! xo

  1. love this! that dress is so cute, you really suit that colour and I freakin' love your hair! (I've had dreadlocks for a couple of years and while I love them I sometimes get beautiful long hair envy...) haha

  2. You look absolutely fantastic! SO cute. I would threaten my boyfriend with no presents on his birthday, but he hates getting presents anyways, so that wouldn't work for me.

    But seriously, you look so adorable. Every day is a tea party with you and I love it!

  4. I already said it, but this dress is so cute and i would never think to pair it with that cardigan, but they look amazing together! I wanted to tell you that when i did the makeover story on Elsies blog a couple weeks ago i mentioned you for my inspiration...i've always admired the way you dress! Hope your weekend is amazing!

  21. I am so obsessed with your namesake dress. I just got mine in the mail today, and I did a happy jig when I put it on :D

    I attached a couple pics of myself wearing it with my review on ModCloth's site... I need to get my husband to take some better-quality pictures though, since my cell phone just does not do the dress justice.

    I really appreciate you giving me input about the sizing -- you were totally right: Medium was perfect for me. I am tempted to buy a 2nd dress, b/c I love it THAT much. Yay!

  22. I absolutely love this outfit! The prints are so perfect together. Sometimes a bigger size makes a dress that much better!

  23. This is a really sweet dress. is this the one that is two sizes too big or a different one? anyway I hope you get Mike a nice present for his birthday since he did get you that awesome ring of yours!!!

  24. I think you are officially my style hero. Not only are you pierced and have a tat sleeve, you also have an amazing head of hair and your dress choices rock my socks. I just needed to share my thoughts :)
