mississippi moon gonna keep on shining

"And I ain't got no worries cause I ain't in no hurry at all..."

".... gonna make everything, gonna make everything all right."
Outfit: blouse- Anthropologie; skinnies- BDG; platforms- Charlotte Russe; socks and specks- UO This is what I wore Monday. Easy, breezy and kinda funky w/ socks and specs. I love this shirt. The dainty ruffles on the shoulders are such a girly touch to the already girly pink and white stripes. I love the new trend of wearing socks w/ platforms too. I've gone w/ it in full force. My favorite way to wear them is with a cute lil' dress or skirt. That best shows off the dainty socks... and the higher the platform, the better for me. Just throwin' that lil tidbit out there. These come in at about 5 inches.

It's amazing how well I can walk in them these days too. It's been a pretty low key week so far. I've got some music to see this weekend though. Can't wait for that! Further is gonna take me further ;)

Thanks for reading, friends!!

Like a Rolling Stone

"Once upon a time you dressed so fine. You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?" Bob Dylan

The Trench Coat Dress. Fantastic.

I bought this dress a few months ago while it was still freezing out and put it away. I'd seen it on the Anthropologie website but, let it slip my mind afterwards. Elise and I were shopping late one night when I stumbled back across it. It was still amazing and was now on sale. Score. I have so many different ideas for this dress. I think I'll probably wear it as a sleeveless trench over other things more than as a dress. But, it is absolutely fabulous as a dress. I got compliments all day the day I wore it. That day I paired it w/ a brown woven belt, dainty socks and stacked platforms. The end product was trendy but so classic. LOVE.

Outfit posts... I broke my small camera. So, I've been slacking big time on outfit posts. I don't like lugging my Nikon around w/ me. Though it's such a great camera. I'm planning on buying a new pocket size digital this weekend. So, I'm hoping to get back on a semi-schedule w/ outfit posts soon. In saying that, my blog has shifted as of late. Lots more inspiration posts. I like that. So, I plan to do a mix of both from now on.

Thank you so much to my loyal friends and followers. Blogging is fun. But, it's even more fun when you have great friends who encourage you. Those who know me know that I LOVE fashion. It's something that lives in my everyday life. I just wanted to acknowledge the amazing people in my life that make me feel good about this thing :)

Have a great week, friends!

free people love

"Luck be a Lady Tonight..."

I received the Free People lookbook in the mail the other day. It is killer as usual. I love the flowy and lacey materials, high waist shorts, crochet everywhere, random leather here and there, tie-dye awesomeness, and so many perfect pieces for the beach I don't know where to begin. It's always fun to get these catalogs. I usually wait until right before I go to sleep and flip through them lusting over all the pieces I'd love to be wearing. It's pretty fun. Then I save the mags along w/ anthro and UO and decopauge w/ them sometimes. Nutty, I know. But, I love it.
Anyway, I hope you all are having a great week. I've had a nice one. I'm super excited b/c Jere is coming home for a few days. I pick him up at 9:30am tomorrow. Can't wait to shoot the shit with baby bro!!! Oh and.. HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY!!
Thanks for reading, friends!

clueless shopping trips

"We're the kids in America..."
I know that's a random music quote for this post. But, whenever I think about shopping w/ girl friends, I get Clueless in my head which in turn gets this song in my head. Who know? :)
American Apparell metallic clutch w/ snap over closure! LOVE it!
Bought with Sue and American Apparell
Nine West vintage line boots. (Bought w/ Jay at Nine West Outlet)
I wanted the Boutique 9 "cooper" boots for forever! But, didn't want to spend the $170 they cost. I found these marked from $100 to $25 in Gulf Shores... SCORE!! I love when this happens. I don't think they've left my feet but for sleep since I got them. Sometimes a girl just needs to do a little shopping. It always helps when each trip is made w/ a bestie!!
Love you JJ and Suzy Q!
I hope everyone is having a great week!
Thanks for reading.

gypsy soul

"We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun....
....Let your sould and spirit fly into the mystic."
~Van Morrison

source: bare style, tsf, nylon magazine
So... This photo shoot Kate Bosworth did with Nylon Magazine has been all over the internet and blogosphere in the past two weeks. I've looked at it like 50 times. Finally decided I needed to post it.. I've got plenty of boho friends who'll LOVE it too. She's such a badass!! Her street style is seriously always on point. Then she does this gypsy craziness photo shoot that rocks my world! I want every piece of clothing in the shoot and I've already been playing around w/ more braids in my hair. Kuddos to Kate and Nylon.

Hope everyone has had a great week! I'm headed to the ATL to see my girl, Suzy Q, in a little bit. Gonna be a fun-filled weekend I tell ya!
Thanks for reading, friends!

Hang Time

"Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation and a pinch of creativity."
~Bo Bennett
Jay come up with the wonderful idea to use pictures we've (and our friends have) taken on the back of our hang tags for jewelry. So, we each chose 25 photos for the first batch of tags. It was really fun picking them out together. Jay received hers today and they look AMAZING! I love this idea of each time we order, changing up the pics. That way people who buy our jewelry and clothing get a sense of who we are. Pretty cool, huh?
So check them out above. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. And buy yourself something pretty from Too Gypsies to get one for yourself ;)
I hope everyone is having a Happy Hump Day!!! I'm ready for the weekend. I'm going to see Jay and I can't wait!!! Beach time baby!

fried green tomatoes

"I get by with a little help from my friends.." Beatles... duh.
These two pictures pretty much explain it all. Thanks Idgy and Ruth!
I just needed to have a little ode to one of the BEST friends anyone, including you, could ever ask for. I love you Suzy Q! Hope you're having a blast in San Francisco. Put a flower in your hair for me, please and thank you.
