Cowgirl in Winter

"She's a rounder I can tell you that. . . She can sing 'em all night through. . .
she'll raise hell about the sleep she's lost. . . but
even cowgirls get the blues

(Especially in the winter time)

My therapy was putting this cute outfit together. What do you think?

I love skirts you can wear a crinoline underneath and dance and twirl in!
But you've got to know that my favorite part of this outfit is the boots.
Those boots are sooooooo very dear to my heart and shoe closet.

I wouldn't like this skirt half as much as I do now if it didn't have white eyelet lace at the hem.
So purrrdy!

Can't wait to tell you wear the dark denim bag is from! (see outfit info below)
You know that wool sweater I'm always talking about on Twitter? THIS IS IT.
My fave, ever! I count on this sweater almost daily to keep me warm.
It has bunnies and deer on the front AND back. Almost TOO cute if you ask me.

Cowgirl Outfit:
Top: thrifted
Belt: thrifted
Skirt: in the shop
Wool Sweater: thrifted and never ever selling. :)
Denim Bag: A gift from the Amish People (My dad is friends with some up north)
Boots: Thrifted YEARS ago, almost brand new condition when found and it was
Love at first sight and wear. Me and these cowboy boots are a perfect match. ♥

Oh, dear blog readers I'm a cowgirl at heart and Nashville, Tennessee is one of my favorite places on earth. It was this song I was quoting in the first part of this post. How I love the words!

Happiest Self

you know that feeling when you feel like your happiest self?
like when . . .

you get together for drinks with one of your best friends? or. . .

when you are doing what you really love. . .

for me that would be shopping for vintage :)

Or. . .(and one of the TOP THINGS on my list). . . when you're DANCING?

Saw this video of Vanessa Bruno's latest collection featuring beauty Lou Doillon on one of my VERY FAVORITE blogs today. (the bleubird blog)
and HAD to share it.
I love it, just love it SO MUCH. It completely reminds me of how I feel when I'm my happiest self.

Hope you enjoy this. It's so CUTE I can't stop watching it!

p.s. what makes YOU your happiest self?

Itching for Spring, Can you tell?

I'm planning a road trip for the beginning of Spring. I don't even know where I want to go but honestly I'd LOVE to go out west.
I've just been going crazy with cabin fever here in Michigan!
I NEED OUT. ASAP. The sun has been scarce here lately.

Here's to a speedy spring!

Most of these items in the shop are very new arrivals!

Finding the Perfect Valentine's Day Dress, Day 4

Can you EVEN BELIEVE the beauty that is this dress? Omg, I nearly fell over when I found it while browsing through ebay.
Imagine walking in a room with this on!

It's VELVET too. I'm really in love with the ruched bodice and full skirt, and the double straps and scoop neckline in front and back are also so very beautiful!

Find this perfect Valentine's dress from
Calendar Girl Clothing
on Ebay.

Here are previous Valentine's day dress posts in case you missed them:

Blossoming in Winter

"And then the day came

when the RISK
to remain tight
in a bud

was more painful
than the risk
it took
to Blossom."

- Anaïs Nin

Happy Monday, dear blog readers. We could all use a little extra inspiration on a Monday Morning, right? January is sometimes very hard for me to get through,
I always feel like I'm trudging due to lack of sun light. . . so vitamin D tablets are the answer from now on!
Today one of my twitter friends (@missdestructo) pointed out this article to me and I love it! If you, like me, currently find yourself in a cold climate needing a dose of happy, read
50 ways to Put the Light Back in your Heart.
Hope you enjoy and here's to a happy, productive week!

p.s. Isn't that a pretty poem by Anais Nin? I love her writing so much.
It's due time to blossom, even if it IS still winter. :)
