Hello tomato legs!

Dress: F21, Belt: Thrifted, Shoes: F21, Scarf: Old Navy, Watch: Vintage Gucci

So yesterday was just 100% fabulous! Please weather, do stick around! I promise we'll spend every afternoon just like yesterday, napping in the sun. I'll bring the lemonade.

The nap, however, may have resulted in the above pictured tomato legs. Future reference, don't sit in the sun without sunscreen when your legs look like fresh butter. Perhaps after a few more days of this wonderfulness I'll look marginally less like a crab. Or not. As long as this sun and warm stuff sticks around I will proudly waltz around with my lobster legs. Ha! Take that cold weather! {I may be craving seafood right now.}
Also, yesterday morning, Dusty and I decided to go to the early service at our church where the 9-12 year old kids were leading the music service and wowzer was it amazing! They were unbelievable and the service was great to boot! Such a great way to kick off a Sunday. Then {because we are pigs} we picked up breakfast at the always classy Burger King and sought out a picnic table in the shade for eating. Hello Springtime!
Happy day!
Love,
Ramsey
P.S. Any of you guys know of a snazzy iPhone case {etsy seller perhaps?} that you would recommend? I'm looking for something different/cute/vintagey. Well, you guys just have at it.
----------------------------------
And we might have noticed that I'm a day behind on this, which means you'll see today's outfit tomorrow and Wednesday I'll go clothesless so that I can catch up.

You outfit looks great but I am extremely jealous of your weather just last night it snowed again in Toronto!

I can't wait for spring either!!

But you look stunning as usual!

You look so stinkin' cute! I love the ruffles on that dress and the black/white stripes with the brown oxfords is super adorable.

Now listen lady - you need to wear sunscreen! Not just to avoid looking like a Heinz ad, but to protect your skin too!

p.s. loving your lobster legs! i'm so sorry, sunburn's the worst ever.

alltumbledown said...

Your tomato legs are making me super jealous, since NYC got another! 8 inches of snow today. Ugh. You look so adorable!

Jennifer said...

Ok, so everything about that outfit is fabulous...and perfect for the spring-like weather. :)

sisters4saymoreismore said...

i never thought i would ever say this but.... i am kind of jealous of your sunburn... we just had about 9 inches of snow hit last night!

If I had an iPhone, this would be where I bought my case! I'm just waiting for my blackberry to die so I can justify buying one. Cute outfit as always!

Renée said...

Haha you are so cute, love your dress ;)

Gertrude said...

Every beginning of summer I end up looking like a lobster! But at least the redness turns into tan afterwards! Lovely dress :) x

Gentri said...

Oh! I hope your legs dont hurt! Love the outfit though! Just thinking about having a picnic outside makes me drool. Last winter I made my friends have one outside and they all hated me for it. Probably because it was freezing. haha! Can't wait for spring!

My friend got her iphone case for $1 and it's really cute. I'll have to find out where she got it. She said it was some website. :)

Love these cases!

Fashionography. said...

Your outfit is lovely, as usual. I may have to steal your shoes! And I can relate about sunburn, seeing as I can never tan, only burn.

Lucylocket said...

love the outfit.
i wish i was somewhere with some sunshine right now.

Oh goodness, your poor legs! At least you'll tan though, my legs are always the hardest to get sun on, and your legs look the best when they're sunkissed! Love love that dress, girl!

Laura said...

Oh I love the ruffles on this dress!! And so sorry about your red legs. Hope they don't hurt. Can you send some of the weather my way please!! We had wind, wind and more wind this weekend.

Ashley J said...

Ohhh, your poor legs! They do look rather tomato like but maybe they will turn tan and you will make the rest of us jealous:)

Jen HaHA said...

I was expecting bright red opaque tights when I saw your title without the pics. Then I thought you had on sheer red tights. Love the ruffles on your dress!

These are vintage OWL iphone cases :} I think they are absolutely adorable.

Oh, and don't worry. I get tomato legs allll through the summer, since I am so paper pale. As all my friends get nice tan legs, mine just get more and more tomato like. Hooray for paleness... Woot woot.

Well I prefer tomato legs over potato arms (or something like that, lol). Lucky you! sitting in the sun and all....aaaahhh still winter here....

Have a great week, and treat your legs with some aloe-vera balsam, it helps :)

Ouch! Girl, you need to use sunscreen!! That looks like it hurts.
But lucky you, we had Minus 8 degrees today and it was freezing.

Hehe, tomato legs. I don't think I could get a tan in Vancouver, even if I tried. Boo, for me. ;-) Adore your beautiful ruffled shirt dress and you've paired it beautifully with those shoes. You look adorable. xx veronika

If only my legs were more
tomato-y, then maybe I'd get tan.

Julia said...

Snow in PA = I'm jealous of your tomato legs. I'd much rather be burning in the sun. Love the outfit...I just got an iphone today!!! My case is purple and very simple. It came as part of a package at the cell phone store. I was disappointed with the selection and settled on a plain case.

brittni said...

I'm so jealous that you are having spring right now.. we just got 10 inches. UGH! haha

liz said...

Ouch! Slather on some spf 50+ next time girl! It is not good for your skin to burn :)

I am so jealous of you in this dress btw, every time you wear it I think it's super adorable!

Melissa said...

Oh my gosh, it was warm enough to get a SUN BURN. I'm officially jealous.

And you look so girly and cute in your ruffles. I honestly didn't even notice your legs (even with the title of this post) because I was so in love with your dress!

I ment to mention - I've been seeing the iphone cases every where they're wooden which I thought was very urban outfitters-ish http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002YWZWAK/ref=asc_df_B002YWZWAK1440040?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=asn&creative=395093&creativeASIN=B002YWZWAK

Ha! Tomato legs, how cute... only you can make a sunburn a fashion statement. The dress you are wearing is so cute, I love it. Also being a Florida girl I must say that this weather is amazing! I am loving every ounce of sunshine too :) Have a great day.
