What to Wear {Bikes Blues & BBQ}

OK. I know you planned to go out of town and miss all the biker business. But that fell through, didn’t it? A large part of you wants to stay holed up in your house and avoid the countless bikes/bikers altogether. But, you’ve been saving those pleather leggings for a special occasion, so — if you can’t beat them, why not join them?
I met my husband at BBBQ in 2008; and who’s to say Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now isn’t waiting on the steps of the walton arts center to buy you a chili dog and sweep you off your feet?
To me, this look says, I could really be going anywhere…but I just happened to grace the folks at BBBQ with my presence.

What I Wore: Nostalgia

what I wore: dress – nostalgia, belt – vintage, heels – vince camuto, earrings – vintage from mae’s

This dress is so aptly branded. I didn’t realize the name of the brand until I took it off to record it for this post, but it is nostalgia. The reason it’s nostalgic to me is that this dress was purchased for me by my mother on a girls’ trip to Eureka Springs, she also bought the same dress for herself and we proceeded to gallivant around in these matching dresses for subsequent years. This was about 15 years ago. The dress is still relevant and we both still have ours! Isn’t that fun?

What I Wore: Shades of Gray

(what i wore: skinny jeans – banana republic, Ro’s oxford – polo, booties – vince camuto)
I find it difficult to be adventurous with jeans. I want to be more so, but by the time Friday rolls around, I’m usually feeling lazy and restless. I know this look isn’t quite bold but it was comfortable and understated. In the fall/winter, I tend to borrow from husband’s closet more than usual…

Bridal Inspiration {Shoes}

In dreamland, my bridal shoes would be Miu Miu, McQueen, Jimmy Choo or Louboutin. Dream with me, won’t you? This is if I go the more traditional route…I will have to devote an entire post to non-traditional shoes.
