((outfit schmoutfit)) scalloped stripes

Dress // Boots - Target* // Necklace ** // Tried this new hairstyle

This may be my favorite outfit I've worn in a while. The vintage fit & style of this paired with the modern & bright bubble necklace just made me happy all day. I took advantage of a cool morning and rocked my boots that I recently got back from the repair peeps. For some reason, people don't like to wear boots in the summer...I'm all for it. I live in Colorado, after all. I think it works. It also just seemed like the only pair of shoes that "anchored" down my outfit. I need some navy flats, I suppose. 

((i just typed "#rambling." wow. too much time on twitter))


love.

*I got these boots for $15 in January of 2010. I've worn the HECK out of them and got them re-soled and oiled at Perry's here in Boulder. That cost me $25. I've spent a whopping $40 on these suckers and will probably get another 2 years out of them, at least. Winning.

  5. I've had those Kady boots for two years now and although I paid full price for them at Target they've been worth every penny of the $39 I paid. I wear the heck out of mine too:)
    Your outfit and hair are adorable, as always. Funny, I just saw these necklaces on VeryJane last week I believe but I'd purchased one about 3 weeks prior on Ebay. Mine is the coral color and I love it!

  12. I absolutely love Cowboy boots and have a really nice pair my husband bought me a couple years ago. Well, we moved to Colorado a month ago and I wore them with some skinny jeans downtown and I was the only one there in anything like that....it was strange. I thought I'd totally blend in but instead I stood out. I LOVE the striped dress...that would also be cute with a nautical twist....little Tom's flats?
