The Update aka Outfits #11, 12, and 13

Sunday nights can only mean one thing: Blog catch up time!


All remixed
Dress (worn as a shirt): Banana Republic
Cami: Ann Taylor
Skirt: Gap
Tights: Target?
Boots: Noble Town Vintage via Etsy
Earrings: Sonoma via Kohls - gift from my mom

I was a little torn about this outfit. I wanted it to work better than it did. As it was, the skirt's a little loose in the waist, the top of the dress is a little big, I forgot my belt, and my tights were baggy.

At least these earrings rock.

Saturday I spent most of the day lounging around in my pajamas, I will not lie. BUT! Saturday night, B. and I went salsa dancing, so I got all dressed up (but failed to iron my skirt).

All remixed except necklace
Lacy top: Turkey
Skirt: Old Navy
Booties: Aldo
Earrings: gift from my sister-in-law
Necklace: courtesy of Kimmie via a swap
Hair: Forty five minutes with a flat iron, a comb, and some hairspray

B. actually took me salsa dancing on our second date (for our first, we went to the beach) and he had NEVER DANCED BEFORE. Like, really, never. That's how I knew he was a keeper. I like salsa because it's a partner dance with steps that you wouldn't be too embarrassed to do in front of your grandmother. We're not great, but we have lots of fun.

And I get all dressed up for it. I even put on makeup - all the fancy MAC makeup I bought when I was going to do my own makeup for our wedding.
Also, I saw a similar outfit on one of the blogs I read recently and thought I should try it. Of course, I totally can't find the link now (clearly, I read too many blogs). If anyone has seen it, let me know.

That brings us to today:

B. and I talked about our move to Costa Rica at church today, so I knew I had to look nice. Of course, I also had to be warm because our church is pretty new and we're in a building that's still kind of under construction and our heating unit isn't connected yet. Yeah, it's a little chilly in there these days.

I've only ever worn these tights under other tights because they're so bright, but I was inspired by Shey over at Modesty is Pretty who absolutely rocked her pink tights with a black skirt and black booties. B pretty much hated them. Like, we got out of the car, and this guy was outside our church building doing some work and he seemed surprised to see us there. B was like, "He was scared by your pink tights." One of the ladies from my Bible study set him straight, though. She told him, and I quote, "Those are FASHION." She knows what's up.

Finally - Lyddie over at Chic on the Cheap gave me a Versatile Blogger award! Whoot! In the interest of NOT writing a novel over here today, I will be sharing seven facts about myself and tagging seven bloggers tomorrow. Y'all know you can't wait.
