Par-tay

Shirt: NY and Co., Button-up: Old Navy, Jacket: Thrifted, Shorts: F21, Shoes: Steve Madden, Bag: Burberry, Necklaces: Thrifted, Pin: DIY, Jewelry: Movado, F21, Guess, T and Co., c/o Mimi's



We have a semi-formal going down tonight and I am right excited to see the Dust boy all spiffied up. The dress code is black-and-white, coctail attire and the whole mess is going down at 10:00. That's PM. Which is wayyy past our bed time, but I suppose while we're dressing all up and acting adult-like in our schnazzay black and whiteness, we can muster a few more hours without sleep. Or not. I'm pretty much just trying to kid myself into staying up later because this little 80-year-old ain't having it with staying up late. I'm thinking we "make an appearance" {I've always hated that phrase, but I'm coming to see some usefulness in it right now} and then bail back to our pillows for some shut-eye. 10 PM on a Thursday? Student Bar, you officially are more rad and less old person than we are. That's it.







Love,







Ramsey

the way you can layer so many different things and make it look completely effortless is unbelievable to me! i'm blown away by how put together you always look! :)

Well hello pretty! You'd think it was spring! Love the way you rock it! I am a complete sucker for collars & tons of necklaces!! & I don't know if you've answered this but I've been admiring those vintage purses of yours, were they a hand me down or was that a stroke of luck while thrifting??

You look stunning, as always! Could your hair be any more fabulous? Love everything from head to toe. Have fun at the formal! But I'm with you that's late for me too...heck it's 8:55 here and I'm about to pass out!

Abby said...

please please please post pictures! I love getting to go places that require dressing up :) Oh and also, I decided that you are the queen at cute layering! Love your outfit

your nude heels are truly nude because i definitely thought you were barefoot. then i realized that would mean you would have nubs instead of toes, and then i realized they were shoes. tricky!

What a beautiful look Rams! I love all the details going on, so YOU! I'm pretty much the same way as it comes to parties. I can't keep my eyes open after 10pm and I always leave first, haha ^^ x

Lookin gorge, girl!! Love the layering! Cant wait to see what you wore to your party!

Charisse said...

I have to say...I don't feel that most people are able to carry the "dress shorts' look. But I think you are rockin' it very well.

As for staying up late...I am no good at it. We did it last night watching football and a scary tv show and I slept horribly all night. Nine is my bedtime and I like it JUST like that!!

This looks very "atlantic-pacific" (which I love). I'm embarrassed to say that I'm scouring your blog making a bit of a shopping list to take with me thrifting! I have no sense of fashion, this is the only method I know of that works for me to look put together for work, lol. :) THANK YOU! You always look so fabulous.
