Pink It Was Love at First Sight



blouse - vintage, Bamboo Ballroom   jeans - MiH   shoes - Target   purse - H & M   ring - Free People

This is my new vintage (isn't that an oxymoron? new/vintage?) polyester blouse I purchased at the Bamboo Ballroom Blogger Night last May. As soon as I laid eyes on it I knew it had to come home with me, much like most of the clothes in my closet! I paired it with my wide-legged, flared MiH jeans I got at Nordstrom Rack in the states. They have become my favorite pair of jeans. Of all-time. They're the perfect cut and length and make my legs look longer than they are. I highly recommend them!

Did you have a good weekend? The weather was crappy here for the most part so I spent a lot of time inside. Even when we did get a bit of sun, like when I was able to take these outfit pics, the mosquitoes were nasty, nasty, nasty. So I ran errands, went shopping, caught a movie ('Horrible Bosses' which was actually quite funny) and pampered myself with a much-needed pedicure. Pink toes ; ). Oh, and I ended my weekend watching 'Marley and Me' on T.V. which was a very bad idea. D. couldn't even watch it and I turned into a big, bawling, slobbering, snotty mess even though I had seen it before. When it was over I found Kitty and hugged her close and gave her a few kisses on top of her head. What can I say? I have a  huge soft spot for animals. Like this little guy:



Okay he's not so little. Extremely large rabbits and hares are nothing new to our neighborhood, I spot at least three of them every day but this one has made a habit of settling comfortably into our grass (which really needs to be cut, I know!) every evening for the past month or so. Kitty watches him intently from her window perch. He doesn't let me get too close yet but hopefully that will change and I'll be able to pet him soon. Then he can move in with us! HA! D. would just love that I'm sure.

Before I go I wanted to thank Style Nine to Five for featuring me on their site. You can read about it here!

Have a great week!

What a great color on you....

I sure hope you are a paid fashion model because it would be shame if you weren't. You are incredibly photogenic - the camera love you, as they say.

Cute little bunny! He is so much more fluffy than the bunnies around here.

NaomiDee said...

yup, i am definitely in love with this outfit...the way you tied your blouse, the flared jeans and the gorgeous shoes..wish we had target in england..boo! how weird...marley and me was on the telly last night here in the u.k too...and even though i already own it, i still made the very wrong decision in watching it again..i literally gave myself chest pains from crying so hard :(

Courtney Erin said...

That top is stunning on you - what a perfect find! And I "accidentally" caught the last half hour of Marley and Me a few weeks ago on TV and was reduced to a giant pile of tears and wailing...awful!

haha - too funny - my friend live right on the beach - 2 beaches down from Seaside (where they film the Jersey Shore) - she doesn't have TV - so she has NO CLUE who they are - and she'll walk down to Seaside and see a line of girls SCREAMING - and she's like "what's this" - she had NO idea - but i've seen them before in Jersey at regular stores - not when they were filming tho -- it's all scripted -- there's TONS of security around them - ect. - they fence off area's JUST for them ect. ..

ANYWAY that's the fill in - Did ur friends move to NJ yet?!?! - now is SOOOOO the time to be here - get to go to the beach, and hiking, boating, ect -- SO much fun in the summer now!

Kastles: Thank you! For my bangs I spray Redken Iron Silk 07 http://www.myhaircare.com.au/Iron_Silk_07_396.html before I straighten them and then afterward I work a bit of Bumble & Bumble defrizz through them, it's the best!

Danielle said...

Lovely outfit, Marie!
I really like the lipstick you are wearing, I love the way the colour shifts from a light pink to a deeper one in the second and third photos. (Or are they different lipsticks?)

Shelby said...

Okay this is a wonderful look Marie. And may I just say I was in Target 3x in the past 2 weeks and there are ZERO shoes like the ones you scored. You hit the jackpot!!

Megan said...

Marie a la Mode said...

Danielle: Thank you! I'm wearing the same lipstick in both photos, it's just the camera settings that are different ; )

I love the pink top, it looks gorgeous on you!

and I'm glad Horrible Bosses was good! I thought the previews looked funny! But I'm afraid to watch Marley and Me... I love my dogs too much!

Cute bunny!

Jessica Weingarten said...

Great outfit! Reminds me of Chloe! That rabbit is so cute too...all of the ones in my neighbourhood are brown! It's interesting to see a gray one.

Marie a la Mode said...

bananas: It was a complete accident! I went for a top knot but it turned out as a bun so I went with it and pinned it with bobby pins and voila!

Sarah Whitney said...

I love the color of your blouse, it looks great on you! And WOW, I can believe those rabbits just hang out on your lawn, very cool!

fashioneggpplant said...

First of all, you look like a high end super model in these pics! Secondly, I love Nordstrom Rack! best place ever for jeans, shoes and sunglasses! I have heard that movie Horrible Bosses was really good, I want to see it! I haven't been to a movie in so long. Andddd Marley and Me =CRY FEST!!!!!
