every rose has it's thorn

v neck sweater~target
cream and black floral skirt/necklace~f21
polka dot tights~american eagle
shoes~harajuku lovers~nordstrom

seriously...i'm loving forever 21 these days(i pretty much love them all the time). i have found some fantastic skirts from their twist collections. this skirt is so cute and really well made. my one complaint is that the crinoline rides up a bit and it's a little on the short side. i have been looking for the polka dot tights that have been popping up all over the blogosphere. i was actually looking for some that were a little more sheer. these are more of a mesh with polka dots. i found these while christmas shopping for my daughters. i had a coupon so they'll do for now. i found this sweater in target. it is super soft. i bought it a few sizes up because i wanted it to be more on the slouchy side. to add a little spice i paired the look with these funky suede harajuku lovers shoes. after looking at the pictures i'm not sure if i like them with this outfit.

i'm finished shopping for christmas!! i can't believe i'm finished. i started wrapping gifts last night and i'm hoping that all the wrapping will be done by sunday. my last christmas related chore was sending out the christmas cards. i put those in the mail this morning. i have to pat myself on the back for being so ahead of the game. tonight it's cookie baking time...yum!! have a wonderful thursday!


  1. Courtnee, I love OTTD!!! Skirt is fab, the tights have me lusting for them, shoes too cool to mess with, and don't think I didn't notice the owl ring!! Funky Fresh!
    P.S. what does the fam/people at work think of your unique outfits??

  2. dea~thanks for the sweet words!
    since i work for the family business most of the people at work are either family or have known me most of my life so i don't think any of my outfits really surprise them to much:)though, every now and then my dad will chuckle or shake his head at my shoes.
    i think the kids are ok with my outfits even though they will cringe if someone asks if i'm their sister:0

  3. I was gonna say the same thing- you do not look like a mom maintainin' in suburbia, and much too young to have kids!! Lucky for the kids that get to look up to you for inspiration. LOL on your dad getting a kick out of the shoes - mine always tells me that mine are not conducive for practical situations, and I'm like "That's the point!!"

  4. This outfit is so pretty and girly! And if you are interested in more polka dot tights (this has to be my favorite trend this season), the Anthro Ruffian collaboration tights just went down to $9.99 (from their original $40 tag) -- I hear they are pretty fabulously made :)

  5. I am in love with that skirt! It's gorgeous! And so is your blog! I love it, I love everything about it and your lovely style!

  6. Courtnee those shoes are off the meter!!! OMG!!! LOVE THEM!!!

  7. thanks for stopping by and taking a look:) all of the sweet comments are just icing on the cake!

  8. I love your shoes! They are fabulous!

  9. love your fun looks!
