A little sparkly

IMG_0483IMG_0485IMG_0486IMG_0492



Dress (Worn as a top): F21, Scarf: gift, Jeans: JCrew, Shoes: Target, Belt: Thrifted



Sometimes you need a little sparkle in your life. Particularly when life is decidedly unsparkly. And particularly when paired with boyfriend jeans.



I did notice people looking at me all morning yesterday though. Which made me question whether I was walking around with lettuce in my teeth or something. Which would have been particularly odd being that I didn't eat any lettuce yesterday.



Also odd. Don't you hate when it turns out warmer than you anticipated and then you start thinking that maybe you should have put on extra deodorant this morning, just incase. But, of course, you don't have any extra with you. So you just spend all day pulling the lift your arm/scratch your head move so you can check and make sure everything is kosher. Please tell me you guys do this because I'm kinda out on a limb here.



Love,



Ramsey

By the way, I was too much of a sleepy head to post this last night, but it worked out because I did not get dressed today. At all. As in I am actually sitting here right now in white gym shorts, socks, and Dusty's hunting sweatshirt. Right. Don't even try to go for a visual on that one.

Oh good grief Ramsey.. I look forward to your posts everyday! You always look adorable! :) And no. you aren't the only one who pulls that move. It's a nifty little trick. I just hope someone doesn't catch on anytime soon.. ;)

Ha! Have no fear! You are not alone in your dilemma!

I've purchased serveral pairs of boyfriend jeans over the last year, and none of them have been working for me. They look as though I am literally wearing my boyfriend's jeans, which is not the best look for me. ha!

Did you get these recently? I'm tempted to try to track down another pair.

Also, you look beautiful and so put-together, as usual.

Sorry I haven't commented up lately dear! I haven't gotten back to many people and I feel quite bad about it :( But I'm glad to see you're doing well! Your hair looks GREAT (as always) and I love the cuffed up jeans.

Abby said...

I love sparkly!!! I don't know how you wear jeans in humidity and heat though. This will be my first southern summer and I am afraid I might die. So I am looking to bloggers like you for inspiration. no pressure :) But seriously, I am in love with your shirt!

Laura said...

Oh don't worry out on a limb girl, you aren't sitting on that branch alone. Been there, been there.

In other news, your top is amazing. And your poses amaze me all the time because you never wind up looking awkward!

Holly said...

Oooh definitely very sparkly! I like it! :)
LOL at the "lift your arm to sniff" trick. I do that too! :)

Holly said...

BTW I just realised I don't follow your blog! I do now! ;)

Amy Z. said...

Could I have your hair please? Oh and your sparkly tank dress too.

Haha yes I do that! I gets really warm and humid here, that it happens even if you do an extra bit of deodorant.

Sasha said...

Yes to sparkles! You look smashing, that's why they were staring at you! :)

So I have to admit, I saw the title of your post and thought Dustin had put a ring on it. :)

ithinkinpink said...

Did you know its sinful to be as cute as you are??!?! The one thing I love about blogging is hearing all the random things readers have to say. Such as your deoderant dilemma. The best part about it is... we've all done it, and you made each and every person laugh reading about it! I love the pure honesty in your blog! It's a refreshing change!
Xoxo,
Corrine

Eclectic Flair said...

Hahahaha! I totally know those warm days when you start questioning why you didn't apply more deodorant! Thanks for the laugh today!! :D

Leah said...

Love the sparkly top! So how did the whole deodorant thing work out for you? :) Make it through the day without stinkin? haha

Sydney said...

Whenever i see a sparkly shirt I think of a disco ball, but you definitely rocked that one!
also, I always do the lift your arm/scratch your head thing. Especially when I dress too warmly for the day and I'm sweating buckets. Oh weather, why don't you just cooperate?!

Allie said...

Awesome blog, Ramsey! I'm Allie:) Hope you can check out my blog sometime!

I'd love to give you a little validation on that, but I honestly just lift my arm and sniff my armpit. No acting involved. . . . basically like a gorilla would do.

: P

(I'm sure your way is nice too, though.)

soooo cute outfit! Love the combo!

I know that situation. Wear something a bit out of the ordinary and you get stared at all day! Why on earth can't we live in a world where people don't judge so much!?

Whatever, you look awesome and those people just don't get it!!
