what I wore: dress – a favorite find from grey dog, tights – target, heels & earrings – forever 21
I was so excited to find this dress at Grey Dog. I know the feather earrings might be out, in fact I was never really into the trend but these work so perfectly with the colors, it was a must. I love this sweet dress so much for it’s versatility. I’ve already worn it with boots and knee-high socks, now with tights and heels and I know I’ll pull it out in warmer weather with a strappy sandal.
what I wore: dress – vintage via trendy mindy’s, tights – target, platforms – forever21, earrings – purchased in mexico, ring – family heirloom
Ooops Christmas came late. I just couldn’t help it with this. I felt a bit Samantha, the American Doll does Holiday in 1992 but whatever. Getting dressed is still about playing dress-up, is it not?
what I wore: blouse & suspenders – vintage from potter’s house, trousers – new york & co, croc heels – gianni bini (also seen here)
I was super into this ensemble until several employees of Forever21 told me they liked my outfit. While I obviously buy from there, I never want to look like the store threw up on me. My general consensus was to take the compliment and move along. Because, I have always found that graciously accepting a compliment is the best way to react. No one wants to hear you mouth off about how terrible you think you look because a) you either mean it or b) you don’t and both are sad.
Sorry…I’ve completely digressed. I’ve included a picture of my beautiful Bird. She turned 2 last week.
There’s nothing like pinterest to remind us all what we want and haven’t got. In the depths of January, despite our warmer than normal temperatures, I can’t get my mind off summer and pools and dream backyards with green grass. Typical. On Friday afternoons, my mind often wanders to what my plans would look like if it were May-August…
Suffice it to say, pool time would be on the agenda. These are a few of my favorite outdoor living scenes. Follow me on pinterest for more: http://pinterest.com/paytonvail
