Greeting Baltimore with my boots on and a word on “Perfection”

“One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn’t exist…..Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist”
Stephen Hawking

Don’t chase perfection, it doesn’t exist. Beauty is everywhere, live your life to the fullest, it, just like you is unique!

If you follow me on twitter at all you probably know by now I’ve moved to Baltimore. So here is my first official post from B-more! I thought I’d be a little cheeky and greet my new city with a taste of the old (Nashville). This is probably the most “western” outfit I’ve worn but anyways 🙂

I’m still getting used to the weather here but it seems just as fluctuating as Tennessee weather so I feel right at home, just colder! I’ve found, though, that with a wool coat and a scarf, I can survive any kind of winter weather 🙂

Dress- Converse for Target

Boots- Alloy.com

Earrings + Ring- Jewelmint.com (Don’t order without checking JewelsandMints.com or Jewelmint’s Facebook page for promo codes, there is almost always a code!)

We suffer for you…

Ollie and I suffer for the art, but more on that in a minute.

First, an Ollie update:

I warned you guys that Ollie can look a little pervy. Well, it’s worse, now he’s grown a moustache. I’ve got proof:

-Pitifullness Personified-

__________________________________________________________________

Now, with that PSA over. This is what I wore today:

Do I have that dejected, something is going on over there but I’m way too cool to care, model look going on? That’s what I was going for but it turned out more confused, hey you kids get off my lawn, looking. Oh, well.

There are a few reasons why I have come to love dresses: 1) Fantastically cool in the summer 2) So Freaking easy to throw on 3) Cheaper per-outfit cost (usually) 4) You can wear most dresses year-round with some fancy layering tricks

5) Versatile,Versatile ,Versatile!

Here are a few more ways to wear this kind of (or any) dress:

Vest + Chunky Necklace + Cowboy Boots

Long Earrings + Statement Belt + Tall Flat Boots

Add a Bow Headband for a Sweet Look

Or a Hat for Something Quirky

So, basically, dresses are hella-versatile. I was going to show you a few ways I would wear this year-round but it was too effing hot today to even think about wearing long sleeves- even for a few minutes! Sorry guys, I did suffer the heat for a little while though…

Ollie suffered too. I had to rig up a “baby gate” to keep him on my deck while I took these pics. Needless to say he was not happy about not being in the middle of the fun so there was a lot of whining and a lot of this:

and this:

Pathetic, it’s it?

Short and Sweet…and a little pervy.

I don’t really have time for a full post right now but I thought I’d post this picture of my new puppy real quick. I think it’s the funniest picture so far of him. He’s 5 1/2 months and has taken over my life, in a good way.

He’s not a perv, he just has a pervy look on his face, but I’m still never buying him a van.

Lacey Little Thing…

I wore this dress for the EverybodyEveryWear Challange but as I am known to do I did not read the fine print and the deadline has passed. C’est la vie.

I do like this outfit but I’d be lying if I said the belt didn’t come the eff off later in the day. A girl has to eat!  🙂

Tune in next month to see what I come up with late for the next challenge!

Dinner and a movie…

Not much going on today guys, went to see Bad Teacher (very funny!) and eat my weight in bread at Carrabba’s! I’m going to gain 500 Ilbs overnight because of it so my pictures might look a little different tomorrow. All in all, it was a great night!

Me rocking a sweet new hair cut 🙂  Thinking of going shorter still.

It’s also been the week of the doppelgängers. Saw Ricky Gervais’ Thursday when I was shopping (couldn’t have been him but it was freaking uncanny!) Tonight I saw my sister-in-law’s nearly exact copy! Dude, it’s getting freaky around here.

NOTD and Kick ass accessories make my day.

Hello All! I don’t have an outfit post for you today but I will show you my nails (I know…I’m a tease). Today’s NOTD brought to you by Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Lacey Lilac!

I also recently acquired this sweet ass ring (not “ass ring” that’s completely different…that would be on my other blog…I’m kidding!) :

You can still get the ring at Belk.com and it’s on clearance. (And don’t forget to check retailmenot.com for discount codes before ever purchasing anything online!)

I would have taken an outfit picture today but it’s a lazy saturday and my ratty pjs are just too sexy 🙂

Have a great weekend!
