I've tripped again and things are starting to get interesting...

30 for 30 days 12 & 13. Oh. I guess now I'm almost halfway through. Kinda. Oh whatever. It's never going to end, let's just all face that and move on, ok?

I've tripped again and things are starting to get interesting
Don't give me choices cause I can't decide
My mind is soaked in words
I've come to terms with all my insecurities
And purity's no friend of mine

Dress - Old Navy, Cardigan - Express, Belt - Limited, Boots - BCBGeneration, Earrings - Forever 21, Bracelet - Express
I really wanted these boots to be OTK, but they're not on me, so I just added OTK socks. Its... not the same. But, I tried.

And dreaming doesn't do no good
Cause I don't wanna lie
That I'm okay and I'm alright
I'd rather take it and forget it
Consider this a warning
Cause I'll start another fight
And you'll say its all alright
I'll wait for the day when you find I'm too much for you, baby
So lay your hands over me
And feel what you only see
But don't bother wasting your time if you're trying to change me

Dress - Express, Tights - Target, Shoes - BCBG Max Azria, Necklace - American Eagle, Earrings - Limited, Ring - Express

You're kinda cool but I know better than to break the rules
Of messin' with a lesson that I'll never learn
I'll go from bad to worse and later back to better
But I'll never better bridges that I'm bent to burn

I wore this on Sunday when we celebrated Valentine's Day. It's one of those outfits that just didn't come together the way I wanted, but I have another idea for this dress. And many more of my 30 days left. So it all works out.
Speaking of Valentine's Day...
3 colors of tulips. Jared never gets me roses. Our first Valentine's Day he was co-op'ing and didn't have a lot of extra money, and I knew how much roses were marked up for Valentine's Day so one day I randomly told him how much I don't like roses on Valentine's Day because they're unoriginal. (I don't really care, I just didn't want him to spend $100+ he didn't need to be spending.) On Valentine's Day he showed up with tulips. I loved them and still do :)
YSL Arty Ring! I mean, it's like I pulled up the Net-A-Porter site and yelled "Arty ring! In pink!" until he ordered it. 
Oh wait.

Cause I'll start another fight
And you'll say its all alright
I'll wait for the day when you find I'm too much for you, baby
So lay your hands over me
And feel what you only see
But don't bother wasting your time if you're trying to change me
If you're trying to change me
If you're trying to change me 

That's my idea of a love song. Hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day :)

So many good things to comment on here! First, you look GREAT in that first outfit! The sweater is so flattering on you, and belting it gives your waist so much definition. Second, LOVE the purple tights! Third, the story about the roses is so sweet and you were a very thoughtful gf! Lastly, YAY on the ring!! I have been contemplating giving it to myself after tax time :) I hope you enjoy it!

okay- is it just me or are your outfits getting sexier and sexier! Love them, you look like you're finding your stride with this- the purple tights are amazingness and I am loving what you're doing and that we're getting to see so many outfit posts of you! (I'm a sucker for an outfit post, what can I say). Also- wow, that ring is GORGEOUS, I'm jealous!!

Marloes. said...

I'm jealous!! I'm OBSESSED with that YSL ring!

Jen HaHA said...

I think these are my two favorites of your outfits so far! Perhaps that's because I'm big on skirts and dresses? Most likely because you look so great in them! I love the colors you've got goin' on!

Come check out my 30! Jen Hemming and Hawing Again

this free bird said...

HAHAHAHA!! Katie you kill me. Seriously, I come over here and just roll laughing. That Arty bit at the end is so awesome. And that opener...oh wait it's never going to end. Damn just this morning I was thinking about people telling me I'd be 'so good' at the 3030. wth? I'd be nuts! I toss clothes randomly from one end of the place to the next trying to find a winning combo. Not pretty.

However those tulips ARE. Yowsa those are gorge!! And so are your purple tights AND I love the socks over the knees in the boots!!
