Remember me? Well, no, you probably don't recognize me as my legs are as pasty as a loaf of Sunbeam. That's why I covered them in the Barney tights today. I'm thinking I should totally confiscate them from the sis because she never wears them. And they are so much happier on me. I dress them up with pretty shoes and take them out on the town. Let's not mention that I wore them with out shaving my legs because tights get sensitive about those sorts of things.
So, I made the mistake of going shopping today. Shoe shopping, specifically. I found the most perfect pair of Madden Girl heels. I heard harps playing the moment they were on my feet. And they loved my tights. And then I had to explain to them that I am on a shopping ban for 30 days. And they started to tear up, so, of course, I started crying too because they were just so sad. And the whole deal was just utterly depressing. But after a long hug, I placed them back in their box and promised that I would be back after my 30 is up and they felt marginally better.
And now I am watching the Superbowl. Actually, Dusty and Dad are watching the Superbowl and I am tuning in when the commercials come on. Backwards?
I can tell you who's playing. I think I have reached my highest accomplishment potential for the day. Nap time.
Love,
Ramsey

There's a game in between the commercials? I wondered what else happened when I wasn't watching.

This outfit is complete perfection. Those tights are great, the light jacket with the black skirt and heels, the necklace, everything. Awesome.

Savannah said...

Those tights are awesome!! I'm so proud of you for waiting to buy the shoes. I bought a really awesome skirt at the Goodwill on Friday, I felt bad, but not bad enough to pass it up for $2. And you know I just couldn't go back and get it later. :)

Sarah said...

You go girl on resisting temptation! And you adorable!

Michelle said...

haaha i'm football-illiterate. and go you for not buying the shoes! who knows, maybe they'll be on sale when you go back for them :)

Blythe and Charlotte said...

If the shoes are meant to be, they'll be there after the 30 days are over. :)

craftydiva said...

Yeah I went shopping for my mom and failed at Goodwill when I fell for a totally adorable Forever21 top:( I'm with you on the Superbowl thang but I am rooting for the Steelers (big suprise as my last name is Steele:)

love this look! every business casual look should have a pop of fun like your tights!

Abby said...

Your hair is so perfect. Haha, I wish I could make mine do that.

Jo said...

I love the chambray with the tan blazer. I have a tan blazer from Banana Republic that often gets neglected because I'm not sure how to wear it.

By the way - today I posted a photo of a pose that was inspired by you! They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? ;)

kimmie said...

Your barney tights are awesome! Only you could pull them off that well, Ramsey :)

I hope the shoes are still there for you when the 30x30 is over!

Cassie Lee said...

Loving the bright pink! Hope you had a great and relaxing weekend!

MJ said...

You actually put the shoes back!? You're stronger than me :)

Shannon said...

Major props for your shoe-resisting strength! Also, your tights are awesome.

P.S. What was your favorite commercial? I liked the Darth Vader and the Doritos "Grandpa?!" ones best.

woodycakes said...

The Miller Family said...

Such a cute outfit!
I LOVE the superbowl commercials. That & yummy snacks are probably the only things that excite me about super bowl parties.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!

Love the look! And the background of these pictures is really lovely! x

Anja said...

Gosh, Gorgeous as always! You look stunning and you should seriously get these tights from your sis! Maybe swap with something??
Oh, that's so sad about the shoes, let's hope they are still there after the 30 for 30!! Fingers crossed for you!

Alessandra said...

What a lovely look on you. You look elegant but effortless and fun, love it.

kristine [kristine. or polly.] said...

I really think you're the cutest ever. Love how you made this outfit super duper fun with the 'barney' tights!

Katelyn said...

This outfit looks great on you! I love how you incorporated the chambray shirt :) Happy Monday!

Eclectic Flair said...

Yes, confiscate the tights from your sister, they look great on you!

And DUSTY, if you're reading this, you might wanna pick up those Madden Girl shoes since Valentine's day is around the corner!

Candice said...

Ramsey,

I adore this outfit! What a perfect combination of elegant, girly and whimsical color! Great!!

Melissa: Write it in Lipstick said...

Did the same thing. Only watched the commercials. I love this look. I own everything your wearing and might have to copy this look :)

The Pretty Life Anonymous said...

I swear the no shopping" part of 30 for 30 is by far the hardestt! I wouldn't even be that sad that I wouldn't be able to wear the new stuff I bought... I just want to buy it!

PS You look smokin!

Saidah said...

Psh. Who watches football games these days, anyway. My hubby was super-jock in high school/college, so I get about a month and half (1/2 of February and then March) of sports-less days between baseball season and football season. The rest of the time, I'm a sports widow. lol. To quote Elaine at ClothedMuch, "marry a nerd."

Leah said...

Love the tights ON YOU...however, I could not pull off the look without laughing at myself all day :)

Thekla said...

Sounds like my friends and I. We sat on the floor and played a trivia game and payed attention when the commercials came on. Football makes no sense to me...haha.

Running On Happiness said...

Love this outfit! I really wish I could find a cute denim button up like that, but none ever fit me. Love the blazer too. Great break away from the standard black.

also, your legs? look AWESOME in barney colors.

Melody's Voice said...

How funny. I went online "shopping" for shoes today...I didn't buy, but I am 7 days in and I am already tempted...this may prove to be harder than I thought.

Your too funny! Since the shopping ban I have been buying tons of stuff for our house; picture frames, lamps, valentine deorations. I just can't go without shopping. But I haven't bought any new clothes.
