The “dress” I’m wearing is actually a skirt…a REALLY long skirt. So I decided to make it a dress…my own special “no-sew” version ;). I love the fabric…I feel all “Little House on the Prairie” in it with its little pink flowers on a creamy white background. And F21 denim vest with the “sleeves pulled off” look??? How is that Little House on the Prairie??? I like that it makes me look a little tough when I wear it…(so does that make me Nelly Olsen?) plus it has bling (you can never go wrong with a little bling!). I dressed it all up with my Geoxx (!?!) creamy suede boots which I can only wear if the sun shines (in YVR that’s almost NEVER) and tossed on some Designs by Shelagh turquoise to tame the waistline of the “dress” (since it didn’t have one!). That’s also a great trick for billowy blouses that make me feel more billowy than I’d like BTW…oh, and the fringe purse is an ancient purchase from Nine West (mine’s black…it also came in Turquoise and I DIDN’T BUY IT TOO…just a tad bit of shopping regret on that silly decision!).
Oh…and my felt hat??? (which I just found out you’re not supposed to wear after Easter?!? or only for special occasions) just won me two VIP passes to the Calgary Stampede Chuckwagons in their Cowboy Hat photo contest over on Twitter (THANK YOU SO MUCH @CSChuckwagons !)…so much for following the rules…that just reinforced that anything that starts with something like “you shouldn’t wear this after this date/age” is one to be TESTED! FYI this was the photo that won..
Have a wonderful weekend Y’all! I’ll be cookin’ up a storm as it’s my Dad’s birthday and we have Canada Day goin’ on as well. Look for the food report over on Instagram- urbancountrystyle
