Rainbow Brite: The Outfit

Happy mid-December everyone! This month has gone by so fast. Which is good, because I can use a nice vacation. This past weekend Steve and I celebrated our one year anniversary with a really good dinner. I can promise you there will be a food review. I might have a new favorite place in town. On Saturday Steve and I took some holiday photos of our friends. I love terrible holiday sweaters and tacky photos. They came out SO GOOD.
Saturday night was the Nashville blogger holiday cocktail party over at Lauren T.'s joint. That girl is quite the hostess and she put together a really nice spread of finger foods. We even had a little organized game of dirty Santa- but because bloggers are awesome people everyone went home with a cool gift. I also got to meet some new blogging ladies- so if you are reading comment and link me to your blog! In attendance was Jen, Lauren W., Emma, Jenna, Trisha, Jill, and probably more that I am forgetting (and I'm sorry!). It was great to hang out with these ladies and their special dudes. I'm looking forward to many more fun times with this great group of women.
On to the outfit! You may have seen a sneak peek of this outfit last week in my Porter Flea review. I got a lot of positive comments about this dress so I'm really happy we squeezed in an outfit post before we left Marathon Village. I snagged this bright dress from Modcloth's annual 50% off Thanksgiving sale. I woke up bright and early on turkey day and snagged some new pieces. I love this dress- it's comfortable, flattering, and bright. (Also, right after these pictures were taken I dumped a bunch of BBQ sauce on the dress. But after some quick thinking, a bit of panic, and a lot of soap and it's as good as new).
The boots were something special I picked up when I was in East Tennessee for Thanksgiving. We went to this shoe outlet that has really nice designer shoes for crazy cheap prices. These lovely yellow boots were hiding in the wrong section. Someone had placed them in the 5 1/2 section but I wanted them so bad that I refused to believe they were that small. And just like Cinderella, the shoe fit. I guess European sizing confused some people- but they are a perfect 6.5! These puppies make my feet really happy.

    1. Thank you! They are my new favorite. I just have to break them in so they become super comfy. They have a ways to go in the that department.

  3. Haha these shots are so fun! You look absolutely beautiful. I do so love me some colour (and some Betsey Johnson, heck yes!), and you are totally killing it! It's sad and grey here today, but these photos totally just brightened it up. So thank you for that!!

    Happy anniversary to you and Steve once again!

    1. Erin- you are perpetually the best. Our anniversary was wonderful!

      Betsey Johnson is my obsession. When I lived in New York I would go to her sample sales and rack up on beautiful dresses and cardigans. But now that her retail stores are gone and my bargains won't happen- I doubt I'll be able to pick up more of her stuff :(
