and I rise from me through broken hues

and I rise from me through broken hues

and I rise from me through broken hues

I really enjoyed your responses to my last post.  The stories about how some of you found your dresses made me a little nostalgic for my own wedding and even more excited for my friends' weddings that are coming up soon.

The past few days have been out-of-control hot (um, it's APRIL), thus my modus operendi has been to wear as little fabric as possible without looking obscene. Daisy Dukes and hooker heels probably qualify as obscene to some people, but not me, so we're golden.  Hot weather upside: BBQ Season is in full effect.

I love the shoes! Your outfit totally looks like spring :)

Anna said...

I love the top! Haha, your heels are definitely not hooker heels. I picture clear plastic looking heels when you said hooker heels :P

ZOMG!!! Perfection!!!!! I loooove the whole outfit.

Fashion Therapist said...

I love that top!

Lemondrop Marie said...

Far far too chic to be hooker heels, just love them!
And that top is spring personified- or materialized? I don't know which would be more English teacher approved... pretty either way.

That flowy, floral tunic is beyond perfection. And I have to admit, I'm jealous of your hot weather!

Julia said...

Look at the blooming trees! The weather is crazy, but your look is not! I adore the bright top -- I feel like you rarely wear brights and when you do I really notice. Anyway, your legs are as long as a tall drink of water. Or something. You know what I mean. You look stunning.xx

♥Lola said...

I adore this top, it's so pretty :)

Sutton said...

you look amazing. i love how you used the skinny belt to bring in that lovely flowy top!

this is a great look for spring/summer activities! cant wait - its still cold in CO at the moment!

PS; hooker heels are only acceptable if miu miu! so youre good

mom & son said...

I am a total sucker for all things floral so it goes without saying, I envy you for owning that shirt and looking so fabulous in it. ;)
The shoes are awesome too!

Daphne said...

Nothing about this georgous look is 'hooker' type. Love the big armed floral top over the tight shorts. Those sandals look good with everything.

Kim said...

I have to find that top E, its wonderful!! :) Great look!!

fashionforwriters.com said...

Daisy dukes and hooker heels are so super fly! Except you look so very classy as you always do and I love the unexpected elements like your fluttering silk top with so many beautiful colors against the overwhelming paleness and prettiness of spring which can sometimes be boring. But your outfits are always exciting and beautiful and creative!

daisychain said...

That's Not My Age said...

That top is gorgeous! Obviously I'm far too old for the Daisy Dukes, I'd have to wear it with jeans.

Brunch at Saks said...

Amazing! Love it all! I like that you're wearing shorts too, because sometimes I feel like people think that if you wear shorts you must pair them with a simple T or tank. They are so much fun to dress up too, which is why I adore this entire look!

Raisa said...

Meg said...

I love your adorable top! I'm so jealous of your weather. We had a blizzard here today :(

Anna G said...

It's not quite shorts weather but I did wear short with leggings today. I want it to get warmer so I can wear more obscene items, like my sheer tops and short shorts.

princesspolitico said...

never could this be misconstrued as obscene - you look like a model! thanks for your compliment on my music taste!

I've eyed a pair of Miu Miu heels very similar to those for a very long time! Needless to say, I'm incredibly jealous of you having them. They look great on your long legs, though! Lovely blog.

Go get a modelling contract already, girl! ;) Sorry, I should really stop hassling you about that. Haha.
Beautiful top. Would look incredible on a windy day.
I am 5'10" and I beat you - how tall are you?? You look pretty tall in these photos (but, perhaps the heels..)...
