Curly Sue, Day 2

I told you I'd keep you updated on how my curly hair experiment is going. And, I have to say... 
I'M STILL IN LOVE!!!
Given, I love being able to mix it up, so I'm not going to run out and get a perm or anything.
But, this is so fun!

Yesterday the curls were tighter, bigger... more 80's-ish.
Today, they're soft, romantic...
I feel like running through wheat fields while the theme from The Man From Snowy River plays in the background.
So, while I said I would wait a few months to break out my white cotton-y dress...
I just couldn't do it!
I've been in this mood for pearls and lace and flow-y and...
maybe because spring is just around the corner.
Maybe because the March issue of In Style is all floral and pastel and woodsy and whatnot.
Maybe because my hubby is gone and I miss him.

(I feel a little like Amy Grant. Nate got me her bio for Valentine's Day! I can't wait to read it. She's on my short-short list of people I want to have coffee with someday. Basically, it's her, Sarah Palin, Mary Dunham-Faulkner, and the Women of Faith core team.)





Wait, wait, wait...
doesn't this picture look like I'm about to say, "Fahm boy... fetch me that pitchah?"





(Okay, I'm actually crossing my legs there and trying to curtsy. Instead, it kind of looks like my shoes are on the wrong feet. Oh, well...)

I did wear boots and a scarf, which can walk nearly any warm-weather outfit through the winter months and out into spring again.
I wanted to wear knee-high socks that would scrunch down over the tops of the boots, 
but I didn't have any suitable.
Not even leg warmers.
You couldn't really SEE my winter-white legs, so it was okay, 
but wouldn't some cream or yellow cable-knit ones have looked cute?

Dress: BCBG, via Goodwill (thrifted vintage white slip beneath enables me to actually WEAR the dress)
Denim buttondown shirt: Gap, via Goodwill
Boots: Thrifted recently
Silk scarf: Brought from Italy from my amazing friend
Pearls: Nate's Grandmother's
Necklace: My great aunt's
Brave Bracelet: God Chicks last June
Pearl Bracelets: cheap-y and wonderful

There you have your Curly Sue update.
I'm now off to dance with the dryads in the wood and gaze into a glassy pond
while humming Jessica's Theme.

Have you seriously not seen The Man From Snowy River???
You need to watch it.
Today.
One of the best movies ever made.
Ev.er.
