Where my Flo-Rida ladies?

Dress: F21, Shirt, belt, and scarf: Swapped with Abby from The Closet Files, Shoes: Jessica Simpson



I'm thinking I have a future in the rap biz. Or not. But I was definitely feeling bright when I wore this outfit. I think I like it. You know what else I like? Swapping. I am a believer, y'all! For one, Abby has the best closet in the world. Apparently. And I am addicted to her headscarves.



On another note, I went to Jacksonville today and I would like to know why you Florida ladies have been holding out on me. St. John's Town Center is da bomb! Urban, J.Crew, and Anthro side by side. I just about melted right. there. on the pavement. That may have had a wee bit to do with the 90 degree plus heat, but for dramatic effect, let's just chalk that up as a minor detail.


This brings me to my last point, I would like to do a little role call for all of my South Georgia and North Florida ladies. Where y'at, y'all? I'm thinking of planning a meetup partay in J-ville if I have any ladies close enough to join. Who's game. If I don't have any takers, Dusty's it. I'm sure it will paint him jolly, let me tell you.


On a P.S. note, it took me about a year before I figured out that Flo-Rida was Florida. I know, I felt pretty much brilliant at that point. Last night I found out that Will I Am was William. Imagine the revolution. Ok, rap fest over.


Love,


Ramsey

haha I'm sure it'll make you feel better to know that I NEVER figured out that Flo-Rida meant Florida and in fact I had to read a blog post from an adorable girl in a freakin cute dress to learn that!

love this color on you, ramsey!

Tiffany said...

I'm a Jax blogger! I've been craving a blogger meetup FOREVER and I would definitely be up for it!! Also, yeah, the town center. It's an amazing blackhole where time and money just vanishes. I have to limit myself to trips over that way. And you can top off hours of shopping with a big ol' slice at the cheesecake factory, so... heaven.
Also, you look very sweet in these photos.

Gentri said...

Haha!! Hilarious!! :) you look so pretty! I love the bright color!!

Kelli said...

SUCH a cute dress!

genevieve said...

Oh goodness, do I love that dress! It's the most darling color, and it was such a good idea to pair it with that top! And would I ever love to go to a meetup? Yes, yes I would. If I had a car. I'm thinking Savannah to Jacksonville might be a little far to walk. Just maybe. Hopefully it works out, though!

And for the record, I had no idea that Flo-Rida was Florida or Will I Am was William. Oh, mygosh.

Ramsey, while I'm not technically a Florida babe, my family does live in Orlando and I'll be in the area throughout the summa. So if I'm around, I'd be down for a shindig!!

Rissy said...

wow... I now hang my head in shame for not realizing Will I Am is William. I think I like kinda maybe got it, but not totally. Ugh what is wrong with me.

Love the outfit, but you rock it way better than I ever could for sure.

The thought of shopping at all makes me wistful.

A meet up!??! I live in Central Florida, I guess.... Tampa Bay to be exact.

I would be willing to make the drive up there if the meet up was over the weekend... Could drive find a cute motel or B&B then head back to my neck of the woods the next day!

I am down for sure if you decide to organize a meet up :)

Jessica said...

I pass away by how cute you are. Every time i read your blog.

Sarah said...

That. Dress. Is. Darling.

Hopefully you can whip up a fun blogger meetup. I live in Oregon (or Ory-gone) and don't think I'll be able to attend. (: I'll look forward to photos instead.

Abby said...

omg I totally did not know that is what they stood for. Husband didn't either and now he thinks I am pretty cool for knowing that before him. Especially since being from Alt he usually knows that kind of stuff, and little colorado me knows nothing :) So thank you! Also I want to come to the party! Atlanta is so close, yet still so far away. And finally I LOVE your outfit!!! xoxo

Love the color of the dress and the eyelet detail on the bottom! Also love the headscarf! So clever! Imma have to try that too! =P By the way, your pictures are always AMAZING quality! You're always so smiley! Hehe. :D

I thought Flo-rida's way of spelling Florida was soooo clever! I give him props for that!

Savannah said...

You look absolutely perfect in all those brights! & I found out about Flo-Rida a year or so ago...after someone told me. & I found out about Will I Am 30 seconds ago when I finished reading your post :/ stinking rappers!

Jennifer said...

I am totally in. I grew up in J-ville and my fam still lives there. Yes, the Town Center is A-stinking-MAZING!!! I love it. Hopefully it will work out.

Melissa said...

Ah-haha! Your revelations are amusing. If it makes you feel any better, it took me a while to figure those out too. Wow.

I'm in Orlando, but JAX is only about a two-hour ride for me so I might be able to do a meet-up there! I could also see if my best friend (who lives in Savannah) would be able to come too (she's also a blogger, but writes about special needs parenting).

I love that dress on you, such a gorgeous color and the fit is perfect. You look awesome!
