dressed up like a lady: The color of sunshine. Or mustard.

May 19, 2011

The color of sunshine. Or mustard.

Every morning, I hear that the high might reach 70°/21° and I pick out some optimistic, spring-friendly outfit. And every morning, I get out of the shower FREEZING COLD, and lack the nerve to leave the house without tights.

Dress: Some department store brand
Tights: Hue
Black lace-up boots: Vintage via the Getup
Scarf: Thrifted
Box purse: Vintage via Gypsycab Vintage


  1. Your boots are stunning and I love the subtle print on your tights! It always sucks when a day turns out so much colder then expected, doesn't it?

  2. Oooh I do recall devious mornings like those. One out of many reasons why I try not to believe in them and hope that they go away as I sleep. But when I'm obligated to confront mornings like that, I'm left with a too-hot jacket by the end of the afternoon. Bummer, weather!

    And I concur, those boots + tights = a fierce fashion equation

  3. Those boots are so badass. All your shoes are pretty badass, actually. Have you thought of doing a shoe collection post? Because I kind of want to see them all lined up- you've got some unique footwear. And just keep in mind that it will be suffocatingly hot soon enough and we'll all be longing for tights weather once again. I already am- it's freaking humid in FL and I'm over it.

  4. love the mustard dress & headscarf.

  5. this is such a wonderful color! it looks great on you!


  6. mmmm mustard. now i want a hot dog!
