Hello April, Nice to See You Again

Dress: Parker; Shirt and Bracelet: Forever21; Boots: Steve Madden; Purse: H&M; Rings: Vintage spoon ring, bead ring made by me;  Scrabble Neclakce: Made by me (see instructions here)
Happy April Fools Day!  I hope you didn't fall victim to any serious pranks.  There's still time left in the day so keep a look out.  I was going to put an April Fool's Day outfit together for you guys and make it crazy in a really bad way.  You know, the kind of outfit that deserves that black line through your eyes.  And I was going to pretend that it was really cool.  Ahhahaha...that would have been classic.  But, this floral printed dress has been screaming for me to wear it all year long.  So I figured I'd give it a go and put my cheesiness aside.  I paired it with my Forever21 chambray shirt tied at the waist and threw on my favorite cowgirl boots.  Because who knows if I'll want to go country line dancing later.  Just being prepared.  I'm loving this sunshine, the fact that it's Friday and I get a whole weekend to do as I please.  XOXO

I got pranked TWICE! Someone gave me a ketchup filled donut this morning and then just got my "the" in my word doc changed to something ridiculous when typing something to the client.

Love that dress! And so glad you didn't fool us ... I've been semi-hiding from everyone today ... I'm SO gullible that I ALWAYS get tricked! And I ALWAYS hate it! :)

Happy Weekend! xo! Lauren @ tickled.

I've been dying to get my hands on a floral dress! I love the way you paired it with the boots! Cowgirl boots are my new obsession, just this past year I bought 3 new pairs, and have my eye on a new one!

As a Texas native, I have to say I love this outfit! The jean jacket paired with the floral dress & cowboy boots is super cute. I also love your bag - I'm in search of a new shoulder/satchel-style bag and one like this would be perfect.

Gentri said...

So cute. You have the longest legs ever! I so would have loved the april fools post! That would have been hilarious!

wow, girl this is just fabulous!! I haven't tried this type of look before. to be honest, I've never really been a fan of chambray tops before, but a couple other bloggers and now you, have really made it work. I think i need to invest in one soon! Love this! Oh, and thanks for commenting on my blog. :)

I have always loved outfits that combine different styles or looks and so naturally I am loving the very girly florals paired with the more masculine chambray! Love.

Elizabeth said...

Darling outfit! I have that same bracelet in turquoise but I can't for the life of me remember where I got it haha

Ginger Tea said...

OH WHY DIDN'T YOU!!! Seriously, you should have done that. It would have been funny to see all the comments, like, "Woww. Hmmm, I'm kind of getting it... i like how you did all that to make it work. Hmmm. Good job!"

Katie! You have to do it next year! Hahahaha
