Kristin’s last performance of Rocky Horror was yesterday, so I went to see her in all her raunchy glory one more time. (In case you missed it, here‘s a peek at her costume.) I was a bit overdressed (story of my life) for a Sunday matinee, but I just bought this dress and I was desperate for an excuse to wear it.

Sometimes when I wear something new for the first time, I like to pair it with something old that I haven’t worn in awhile. Maybe I subconsciously feel guilty for neglecting my old clothes in favor of the new ones. It’s kind of like when parents have a second child, and they just let the first one play in traffic and eat cigarette butts. That behavior is generally frowned upon, and so too should ignoring old but cute purple ankle boots like these.

I hope everyone has a great week! In case you were wondering, my week will be spent in sunny Florida! Yep, as you are reading this, I might be flying over you. For the next few days, you can look forward to some vacation photos, including a historic event: my very first visit to Disney World. Stay tuned!

Dress: Target

Coat: J. Crew

Tights: old (similar)

Boots: old (similar)

  1. I’m never reading your blog in public ever again. Playing in traffic and eating cigarette butts = me and my snort laugh getting the stink eye from eeeeeeveryone in the library.

    I saw that dress at Target but they didn’t have my size so I tried the pants – it was like I skinned a baby cheetah and saran-wrapped the pelt to my legs. Not a good look. This is a thousand times better- you look awesome!

  2. I love everything about this look! I have some tights in a similar pattern and I definitely think I need to try them with a printed dress because this look is so cute! Love those booties too 🙂

  3. The dress is gorg and the tights are super cute but I am desperately trying to avoid wearing tights until the end of October. I know my sartorial choices will not stop the cold weather from rolling in but a girl can dream, right?!

    • Oh I LOVE tights so I was pretty excited that it got cold enough the other day to wear them. It won’t take long for the excitement to wear off though 🙂
