Sirens of the Sea



Yesterday consisted of eating burritos and lacking all grace (and you can tell by the burrito splotches on my dress). Also the paying of a car payment. That's really quite as eventful as it got. We got so bored after taking these photos that we started taking jumping ones. It was kind of hilarious and so much fun. I'll share some pictures later. (I also said I'd share Fayetteville pictures from last week but I have yet to do so. Oh the life of a blogger!) BTW, I'll forewarn you that you're only getting one picture of me. I still look crazy as all get out but man... I make some ugly faces when jumping! haha

Today is a busy busy day in our household. Lots of "clerical" work to do with the shoppe and inventory and planning, as well as lots of writing to tend to on this little blog. Mike and I will be so swamped the next two weeks that it's going to be hard to even find time to wash my hair. (Don't worry, I will!) Vet visits, errands, and plans to be made. I'm kind of excited! 

I like this outfit from yesterday a lot. The dress is so fun and my little red fascinator fit so perfectly. My cardigan though.. oof, it's dingy! One of the reasons I hate the color white. It'll get some one on one time with some Oxyclean! See my lil' bike shorts? Those are a necessity for Tennessee summers. Too hot for tights but too windy for nothin'!

Navy dress c/o Motel Rocks
Forever 21 cardigan
Thrifted belt
H&M bike shorts
Blowfish shoes (15% off with code BFKAELAH15)
Hive+Honey fascinator (15% off with code PUPPYLUV)

PS; I tried a new makeup routine yesterday. I think I kind of like it! Here's to the big wide world of eyeshadow!

PPS; I think Blogger has taken a strange disliking to my Wedding Wednesday posts. I tried tackling the post from last week again this morning and after a couple of hours I was over it. I even retyped the entire post to see if it was caused by the copy + paste from a document. I'm going to get it figured out... I will. Until then, you get an outfit post to keep my stress at bay. Win/win, right?!

  5. Hi there, I have a weird question for you. I hope it's not offensive or anything, because I love your wigs and you always look so fun and great wearing them, truly.

    Do you trim them at all to get them in the shape you want or do you just wear 'em straight outta the bag? They always look so fantastic on you and I've tried a couple wigs, looking for an easy way to switch up my look, and they always look funny on - like I'm playing dress-up with my grandmother's wig or something. Maybe I just haven't found the right wig-maker. heh.

  6. Oooh I really like that dress. Where do you get those little lacy short things? I've seen them on a lot of girls lately and am considering picking up some.
    Also, is this the same blonde hair as of recent? Today's shots make it look a little more gingery/strawberry blonde. I LIKE!

  7. @Dani: I always wear them straight outta the bag! I'm not opposed to cutting them but I've never really felt like I needed to :) I try and "fluff" them or backcomb them if I need volume but that's it!

    @Jenny: same wig! I think the red brick pops a bit and the Kelvin temperature on the strobe might have been a little bit warmer, too! also why I look like I have a slight tan! haha and the bike shorts are from H&M! All of maybe $5 or $6!

  15. I love your dress, so adorable. I love white but it is such a bitch to maintain the crisp white color and I always spill on myself - I've given in and worn bibs many times haha.

  17. So what's your new makeup routine? I am so burnt out on mine, and it's so hot lately, I just wear a little powder and mascara with lip gloss. I'm in Virginia-it's hot here too!

  29. You are so precious. I love your idea of using bike shorts under dresses. It would be cute to add little ruffles on the bottom like bloomers.

  32. Reading your post today reminded me of this song: Behind blue eyes - The Who (yeah, Limp Biskit played it too, but The Who always win the battle). It's a beautiful song, as beautiful as you. Have a nice Thursday, honeybee!
