Dress: F21 {$12: $100 summer}, Shoes: c/o Frock Candy, Bag: Burbery, Vest: Belk, Flower Brooch: DIY, Shades: F21, Jewelry: Movado{gift}, T and Co, F21, Guess, thrifted, Nails: Polyester Pink {NYC}


How was your weekend? I hope it was stupendous. Ours was quite lovely. Nothing special in particular, just lots of chillin' and junkin' on good grub. We actually had not one or two, but three fails this weekend in the eating department, however. First off, Friday. We ordered a pizza. Might I add that we have been ordering pizzas from this same place for the past four years at least on a bi-monthly basis. Right. The pizza boy got lost {the restaurant is five minutes from the house}, the pizza got cold, he had to return and have the order remade and showed up an hour late. Saturday, we were all geared up for BBQ at Famous Daves. Apparently Dave is not so famous. He went out of business. So we ended up at Steak and Shake {because we were hungraaayy and outback has a 45409813 minute wait.} And then, yesterday, we went to eat lunch only to find that Hopkin's is closed on Sundays. Right then, I think this is a sign that we should get off our lazy rears and cook at home on weekends.



We were much more fortunate in the lazing department. We watched a movie, caught up on some tele and photo editing, I painted my nails twice {once with the lovely pink above that I scored for 25 cents-yessiree-at the drug store}, and we all around just took advantage of a rainy day and enjoyed being slackers for a decent portion of the weekend. Victorious.



Ok, it's Monday, gotta go put on my game face {a.k.a.: makeup}.



Love,



Ramsey

This may be one of my all time favorite outfits from you. Nice find on that sweet $12 dress! And those shoes are B-E-A-U-tiful! Sorry about all of the food fails. Food might be my favorite part of the weekend. At least you got to eat out a couple times anyways... we are currently on a budget that makes that not happen... Sad day :(

I like your arm party

Lay like broccoli - I love it.

You look amazing in this outfit. I love the vest added to it for another fun element without overwhelming the dress or being too warm. The layered necklaces and bracelets are awesome too.
