babydoll


Minnesota's spring weather is one of the biggest bothers in the world. Some days it will be 52°F and absolutely lovely. The next day it will be below freezing and 6 inches of snow! I think Minnesota needs to see a therapist, to be honest. Today, though, it's been pretty nice (that is to say, we're supposed to get rain and snow tonight) so I went outside to take some photos. It's my day off from school and work, so I didn't wear pants as usual.


I don't even know what this outfit can be categorized as. "Quirky" I guess? It's just a total hodgepodge of different things and makes no sense and probably shouldn't be worn out in public.

Unfortunately however, my naughty puppy was crawling around out in the garden. He got tied up and started crying his darling little eyes out, so I went to let him off his leash and bring him inside to wash off his muddy paws. Instead, he made a run for it and I ended up chasing him around the yard and several grown men looking at the house for sale next door cast me disapproving looks. Ho-hum, to be a teenage girl!


You can't tell very well, but the shirt I'm wearing is a peach coloured silk shirt with a bunch of little villages and men in top hats and beautifully dressed women printed on it. I found it a few weeks ago at St. Paul Vintage Mall for $6. I paired it with a skirt I sewed last year, a black slip from H&M, a gold belt from my great aunt, really old stay ups that should be in the garbage instead of on my legs, socks from Target, and a pair of heels I found at my local second hand store.


I always buy into trends really late in the game. Here's my version of socks with heels! I've always really liked this look. I've noticed that the always lovely Emily Browning wears this a lot. I suppose you could say that she was my inspiration for this. But really, I'll just take any excuse to show off my socks.


I've been working like crazy lately (40 hours a week, plus school) and only managed to get this day off by pleading with my supervisor. I have a school orientation tonight, so I suppose it isn't entirely a day of leisure! Thursdays are supposed to be my day away from campus, but I'm going there tonight anyways, grumble grumble. It will be differrent though, as I asked my pops to go to the orientation with me. I've never been to college with a parent before, of course!

Your sweet little pup sounds just like my Scout! He's always getting into things and I'm always chasing after him in my short little dresses. The way people look at us, you'd think I was running around in a toga. Fun.

Anyhow, I hope that everything is caught up! I've been super busy as well with work and school. Hohum.

You look absolutely gorgeous, by the way. I'm creeping on this post and your most recent one and have such a crush on your lipstick. And your face. And your outfits.

Is your head swelling yet?

xxoo,
Amber Rose

I like this outfit very much! The combination of the tights and the socks is gorgeous! So, what happened to the tights afterwards? Did you throw them away?
