Beam Me Up, Scotty!


Dead Hearts by Stars on Grooveshark


I had every intention of straightening my hair for this outfit post (or at least tempting to) but this is what my hair does naturally after it dries. I was in a timecrunch so I just went with it. I get asked to post straight hair a lot and while I actually hate wearing my hair straight, I thought I might give it another go. Soon... maybe. This dress has quickly become a favorite. The color is the best and the bow + sleeves + comfy silhouette are all fantastic. Once in a blue moon I'll find something at Forever 21 and actually be impressed. I've worn this outfit twice this week (hence the 2 different pairs of shoes above!) I wore it on Tuesday, though I didn't do much outside of the house aside from run errands because it was so yucky. The weather is the most fickle thing in the world lately. The other day it was absolutely frigid (and so wet!), but today was a sunny beautiful 74 degrees. My Blowfish Beams boots are a heaven send. I have them in brown, too, and love love love them. I've mentioned before that I have those big ol' softball calves so these are the perfect circumfrence for them. I normally miss out on all of the ~stylish boots but these are great. It's amazing that they don't make my outfit posts more often because I wear them anytime it's yucky outside! I don't have proper rainboots but these do more than enough to keep me dry and warm. (They're also over 50% off if you want to snag a pair!) The Nazine bow flats are a trusty ol' favorite of mine and I think I'll never tire of them. I finally wore mega holes in my Blowfish Senderson flats so I retired them for these! While on the topic of shoes, I recently got these bad boys in the mail (in red! so bright!) and I'm counting on more days like yesterday so I can wear them out and about! They are so comfortable! Hooray for Spring!

Anyway, I wore the second version of this outfit to get tattooed yesterday. We colored in my right shin (the girl). I head back next Thursday to color up the dude and I'm so excited to finish these pieces. I have so many more I need to squeeze in! -- Today is a pretty big day for me and Mike. I hope that next week brings some news that I can share about a family blessing so cross your fingers for us! It's one of the most exciting and terrifying things that we've ever had to face together! (It's a good thing, don't worry!) Happy weekend, y'all! I'm looking forward to it!

  4. i love your dress - especially against the awesome, contrasting blue wall. so pretty!

    i haven't ever gotten a tattoo that's been really colored in, and the small part of my last one, i just kind of expecting it to hurt more for some reason, but i actually found the shader to feel good! ha.

    i really should get a good pair of comfortable boots like yours, but alas, even if i buy them, the chances i'll bother to wear them is unlikely.

  30. I loveeee this outfit with the boots! And your hair looks amazing after just letting it dry naturally.. I'm so jealous.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I seriously can't get over how great your hair looks against that blue wall. Does it sound bad to say you look especially "grown up" in this outfit? I definitely don't mean that in a bad way :) I hope everything is going well with whatever it is that you're doing! I'm kind of dying to know...
