Bejeweled

Today was deceptively sunny. Either way, I dressed for the wanna-be warmish weather and continued to run with cheery clothes.
I wore this mustard cardi for the 1st time here.
Apparently I enjoy wearing it atop white/creamy, lacy pieces. 
Mikey made fun of me after we snapped these, because I do "the same poses". I was like, "Dang, I'm not a model. I'll do the same thing every day if I want and I dare you to say something again."
No, I really just don't know what to do when taking outfit photos. Like, what do I do with my hands, my head...what is a good pose? Ugh. It's really awkward no matter how much fun I 'try' and have to lighten the situation.
Then, the wind came out of nowhere, giving me a few almost-Marilyn Monroe moments. That certainly lightened up the mood. 
My shoes make me think of the game Bejeweled, with all the little rhine stone-y things that make a heart on the toe and line up the back of the tiny wedge. Plus I love the colorful gems stones on my whale necklace that Mikey got me for my birthday last year. (I love whimsical animal prints in and on everything, so I knew I had to have this cute little Moby for a necklace!) And of course the jewel tones in the pom pom puffs on my cardi are a nice touch...And there we have the name for this post!
Dress, belt: Ruche
Cardigan: ModCloth
Shoes: Poetic Licence (2010)
Ribbed tights: Target
Whale of a good time necklace: Jared

Today on my way home I reminisced through some fun, old tunes. I listened to "You Don't Have To Call" by Usher and remembered how it tied into a part of my teenage life back in 2001/2002. I followed that up with a repeat (times 10) of "You Never Even Called Me By My Name" by David Alan Coe...oh boy, do I have so many fun drunk (both) memories associated with this song. Me, Jen and our Oklahoma City gang would sing this song (at the top of our lungs) in a little hole in the wall bar that we frequented. In fact, this song would come on and the entire bar would sing it, usually holding onto shoulders and swaying back n' forth. Ah, good times. I like when people can come together like that and be friendly. Drunk or not. :)

Guess I'll go eat some cake now. Y'all have a sweeeet evening. <3

Love,
me

  1. I LOVE that outfit. Seriously. I wish I could have a reproduction of it to myself. I just spent like $100 at Target, buying 2 skirts, a headscarf, a belt & some leopard print flats. Whoo hoo!

      Dude, I go crazy at Target. Buying all sorts of unnecessary shiz. But sounds like you got some cute things! You know what I'm gonna say: Blog it. Pictures. Share it with us! :)

    2. I will for every cute outfit I make out of what I bought! =) I needs me some cowboy boots, but first I need more $$ instead.

    3. Cowboy boots are amazing, and yet more expensive than I originally thought. Check out a Sheplers near you. You may get lucky and find some for $100 or less.

  3. Oh man, I can hardly wait for it to get cold here so I can rock a mustard cardi. Mustard is the best!

    You look adorable. I love the "Marilyn" pictures. I know what you mean, about poses. There are only so many times we can put our hands on our hips or look down to the left!

    1. Mustard yellow is one of my favorite all-season colors.
      Thank you for being a sweetie. :) And exactly! Poses schmoses. I just want to quickly show my outfits, lol.

  4. I love that cardigan with the lacey dress. The pom pom details on the shoulder/side are so sweet :] And those shoes are so pretty!

    I never know how to pose either. It is so awkward. I think I do the same things over and over as well. I really like the "Marilyn" shots too - they are so fun and candid.

    Singing that song at the bar with everyone sounds like so much fun. I love doing karaoke (when I have had enough to drink), it is fun when everyone gets in to a song.

    1. Thanks, Allison. I'm glad I'm not the only one that finds "modeling" extremely awkward. I can't do the serious face very well either, which is why I'm always smiling. I know some bloggers that have the serious face down! I wish I could do that. lol
      I thought the Marilyn-esque photos made for really fun/cute images. Yay for mother nature!
      And those kind of coming together moments are my favorite. I can't tell you how much I love getting caught into moments like that.
