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.

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

  4. 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.

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

  10. 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

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

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

  18. 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!

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

  32. 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!

  44. 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.
