A Not So Rainy Day

Dress - Cocomo (Walmart) // Arrowhead Necklace - Skyline Caverns giftshop // Green Necklace - Thrifted // Turquoise Ring - Thrifted // Green Ring - Sky Caverns giftshop // Boots - Rocket Dog (Modcloth)

I was saving this post for a day when I had a lot to do and not a lot of time! That happens to be today. Ironically, it actually did rain today. I just wrote this post title in hopes that it wouldn't rain I guess...

It's funny 'cause I couldn't think of any other ways to style this dress when I put it on...so I almost didn't want to wear it for some reason. But, y the time I got home in the evening I'd thought of like 5 other ways to wear it. Honestly, I'm so surprised that I made it through the day without getting something on it! I'm usually a very messy person, and I was in the art building all day too! It was a Tuesday so that helped because I don't have any drawing classes that day. I can't wear any light colors Monday, Wednesday, or Friday because I have Life Drawing and that room is so full of charcoal!

So, here are some things I'm loving right now :

Song - Can't Stop by One Republic. Sorry for the weird pics in the video--it's the only full version of the song I could find.

TV Show - Well, I'm still watching Supernatural and Monk.

Movie - Stranded it's a re-imagining of Swiss Family Robinson. Plus, Andrew Lee Potts is in it.

Blog - A. Loo's Closet A Christian, stay-at-home mom with a fabulous, retro style!

Clothing - My chambray dress from JCPenney's (seen in this post).... except that the zipper just broke. Funny, now I want to wear it like every day, and it's probably just because I can't.

Oh, and before I forget. Yes, Bible reading and exercise completed!

Well, hope y'all have a wonderful day! Thanks for reading :)

  8. I love the dress!! And it's great styled with those boots--sort of like a more ethereal grunge look :). I can picture tons of ways you could style it! Monochromatic off-whites, pops of color, grayscale, layered with a skirt or shirt...

  13. Confession - I have SUCH a thing for lace dresses. I just love them and I really enjoy seeing all of the different ways that they can be styled. I really love how you let the pretty white lace just stand on it own but them your wore those fantastic boots and now you've got just the prettiest rustic romantic look going on. (Luv those boots, they look just like a pair Seychelles had out a few years around, with the low heel and wrap-around laces.) I'm really impressed that you made it through art class without getting this dirty, I use to just destroy my clothes in classes. It probably didn't help that I love charcoal and pastels and I get them all over me when I work. :P

    When you finish with Monk you should totally try out Firefly, there's not a ton of episodes but it's just one of the best shows out there. So well written and man, I could just go on for hours about it. Heh, you just reminded me that I need to do my exercises before I hit the sack. (I should probably be good and read through my bible as well since I've been terrible about it lately.)

  17. Excellent Wal-Mart find! That's a great dress - it flatters you completely. I'm currently on season 4 of Supernatural, but I keep getting bogged-down by life and work, and putting the show aside for weeks at a time.
