. . . for Lauren and Lauren: It's OK

July 11, 2012

It's OK

dress: target  shoes: payless

It's OK that this dress is most likely a beach cover-up but I wear it as a real dress.
It's OK that when I wore this on vacation in Mexico, 
I sat next to a woman in her 50's wearing the same dress.

 shirt: target  skirt: Old Navy


It's OK that I feel like I belong on the set of Little House on the Prairie in this skirt.
I can't decide if I should keep it. Be honest.
 A little too Laura Ingalls Wilder?

It's OK that I had a dream the other day that I had a meeting with my students' parents to wrap up the school year and at the end, one of them stood up and said that I was the best teacher in the world and then everyone clapped and cheered.
Wishful thinking.


It's OK that my toes currently look like this:



It's OK that I heard an Avril Lavigne song on the radio the other day and realized that was the first and one of the only CDs I've ever purchased.



It's OK that I was at the store Discovery the other day and the fact that you can't try on their clothes didn't stop me from trying to put a romper on under the dress I was wearing.
Flashing your underwear to an employee = NOT OK.



Pin It!

That last one made me laugh out loud!

Hehe, too funny! But what a dumb rule!

I think the skirt is cute but maybe with a lighter top?

And my toes look just like that!

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

What's the waistband of the skirt like? I'd probably tuck in a tank top. Maybe? Nothing can every be TOO LHontheP :)

It is TOTALLY ok for your piggies to look like that because mine do too!!! ;) And the skirt is cute, try tucking in a neon tank and add some accessories....

Hahaha okay, but you look way better in that dress than the 50 year old woman! I'm sure of it.

no WAY a 50 year old was wearing that same dress. she should be the one embarrassed, not you. unless she still had the body for it. then that just deserves a slow hand clap that gradually picks up and everyone joins in ;)

LOL! I love the one about you wearing the same dress a fifty year old was wearing. Sounds like something I would do. In your defense, I think the dress is very cute. Obviously both you and the older woman have good taste :)

Annie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You crack me up Katie! Love the purple dress...that lady in her 50s must be SUPER stylish :)

what a great dream!!! and i hope when i'm 50 i'm still wearing super cute clothes like you! and as for the skirt, i think it's super cute. i think it would look really cute with a white tank tucked in and belted a little higher on your waist. plus it has pockets, and if i'm not mistaken, hearts on it.

Montana said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

My toes look the exact same... and hey! thats ok!!
i love the maxi skirt! too cute!!

Laura said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I almost purchased the same skirt from Old Navy but thought the same thing! Now that I see it on someone else I think it looks cute! I think it would also look great with a belt!

Always Maylee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, loved the last one, so funny. Clearly the 50 year old woman has great style! :)

Love the purple dress (swim cover-up/whatever). I hope I'm still rocking cute clothes when I'm 50! ;)
Not sure about the skirt - I'd like to see it with a pink tank, maybe?
And I'm not sure I've ever heard of a clothing store not allowing try-ons? I too would be flashing my underoos while trying things on. :) Remind me not to shop there, 'kay. ;)
Happy Thursday!

Oh girl, I have a shirt that is supposed to be a beach cover up, but I wear it like a normal shirt all the time. It's just so cute! :)

Nicole said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

The skirt looks comfy...I say keep it! But maybe with a lighter colored top :)

Hima said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love that dress, and the nails, and the shoes!

Oh, and Katie, did you get my email about swapping? I haven't heard from you, so I didn't know if it had bounced or anything.

<3Hima
