Boots: Etsy, Shorts: Gap cut-offs, Tanks & Cardigan: Old Navy, Comfy Old Man Sweater: Thrifted
In the name of full disclosure I did NOT wear this outfit this weekend except for a few hours sitting on the couch with the boy. But every time I’ve worn it out it’s been much to dark outside to take decent photos because this has become my go-to ‘winter bar outfit’. Like a lot of people I enjoy going out for a drink on a regular basis, and like a lot of other women I sometimes like to put on something a little revealing. I usually don’t post them here in case my mother or employer happen to be reading. But the problem with revealing outfits is that… they are cold. And it is winter time.
My happy medium is leggings, cow-lady boots (which is what I call cowgirl boots with a heel that is WAY to large to be wearing on a real farm) shorts, a couple tanks, cardigan, and big comfy old man sweater. It’s really easy to strip down a few layers when you get into the bar, the more Karaoke you sing the warmer the bar gets. The pieces are pretty interchangeable meaning I look a little different every time we go out. Also please note the cool looped together necklaces.
Also! I nearly forgot! Notice anything new, different and exciting? Might be hard to tell from these photos. But I’ve got a new hair color. It’s pretty subtle (even in person) but it’s much redder and a little darker than it used to be. I walked ALL the way down to the Walgreens (four blocks) and picked up some color last weekend. I was going to post a stop motion video of the coloring but then I got sick last week. :(
I think it still needs a little trim, so no worries my shaggy headed bowl cut goodness will soon be gone.
For mother’s day we took curly-haired-boy’s mother to a Mexican restaurant then he went to work and I took a nap then I took MY mom to the best Greek restaurant in town. We had a lot of fun & lots of good food which is what most holiday’s are for. Eating good food and spending time with family.
Dress: Thrifted 5$, Boots: Etsy 69$, Necklace: Freshwater Pearls 35$, Earrings: Just Creations 8 or 12$ ?, Jacket that it turned out it was WAY to hot to wear: Thrifted in Columbus 8$
The tattoo, it is a graphic’s card, a friend of mine designed & tattooed for me.
Twirly dresses are the best.
I’m not big on heels, but these are the tallest ones I own, they are actually fairly comfortable but a little hard to walk in due to the height. When we walked up to the greek restaurant I cheated and switched to a pair of green ballet flats.
A pretty good shot of how awesome these earrings are. They are fair trade and I have no idea where they are from. But they are SUPER light weight and I love bright/dangly earrings so I wear them all the time.
I usually wear this dress with some type of jacket/hoody/t-shirt because it’s a little more revealing than I’m used to. Anything that requires a special type of underwear I usually avoid but this dress is just so cute that I will make an exception for it several times this summer.
This purple blazer is the bomb & real wool, but maybe doesn’t look the best with this dress. I refuse to take out the shoulder pads. But I’m basically in love with it, and anything else purple. I hope all the moms out there got something awesome for their mother’s day because Ian didn’t get me anything but some whining about me postponing his walk so I could nap.
I’m approximately 24 hours early but I’m adding this button now before I forget.
