dayglo and breaking the rules

Hey kiddos! Still alive, still crazy busy, still having too much fun!

So yesterday I dressed like a highlighter... I'm trying to decide whether I should keep this 60s dayglo nightie or not, so I wore it over to the boy's house for a porch cocktail and some late night people watching. I got quite a few stares when I went next door to the gas station... I think I'll hold on to it for now, I've never seen another one like it and I go thrifting a LOT.

Dayglo nightie - thrifted
Leggings - I Heart Ronson
Shoes - Pierre Hardy for GAP


Ryan (boyfriend) - Your outfit doesn't make sense.
Me - Only when you know the rules, can you break the rules.
Ryan - What are the rules?
Me - Do you REALLY want me to start talking about the rules?
Ryan - No, Carrie Bradshaw.
Me - (devil stare)

Shirt - JC Penny super clearance (yeah, I got distracted buying new work bras the other day...)
Skirt - thrifted
Shoes - thrifted Nine West

Whoo! Newly fixed vintage shoes, fresh from the cobbler with new heels!

I got new taps for two other pairs of heels, but these were the tough ones for them and they turned out fabulous! $3 thrifted Nine West shoes from Brazil, $29 in repairs... hmm... still totally worth it!

That is all for today kids, 7 hours on my feet at work, ran 5 miles, now I'm off to make dinner with the boy and watch the Twins games... ahhhh

I've been reading your blog for a few weeks but I don't think I've commented yet.

My boyfriend always uses the Carrie Bradshaw comeback anytime I try to talk about why something works or doesn't work. I think it's a boy go-to response.

Check out my beauty product/shopping/whatever blog if you want!
