I’ve Always Been a Dreamer

FP dress_Zara vest_JR boots

FP dress_Zara vest_JR boots2

FP dress_Zara vest_JR boots3Free People dress. Zara vest. Urban Outfitters bandeau. Nasty Gal vintage fingerless gloves. Vintage Justin Roper boots

Florals + Denim + Combat boots = My dream combo.

I realize this look is not groundbreaking, so I went ahead and did some accessorizing.  I’m still loving tiered ruffles and going for another layered look, decided to throw on this UO bandeau over my new Free People dress/tunic.

Thank you to the fabulous ladies behind two of my daily reads –  Oh So Hip It Hurts for tagging me and Fashionista for giving me an award.


Here are my ten random facts…

1.  I’m most inspired by the trends from the 60′s and 80′s.

2.  I can’t whistle and fake snap my fingers.

3.  I only wear skinny jeans but wish I could pull off the wide leg pants look.

4.  I played the piano for four years… mainly a mix of Celine Dion and country songs.  Yes, I like old school Celine songs.

5.  I’ve pushed myself physically when I completed the Los Angeles Marathon without training (note: I don’t recommend this.) and stayed awake while standing for 24 straight hours for charity.

6.  In high school I was a coxswain for the crew team.  I got to yell at boys and steer a boat.  Good times.

7.  I prefer the grunge and shaggy look over clean-cut in guys.

8.  I had a scar on my face for 13 years, courtesy of Mel.  We used to fight A LOT when we were young.

9.  I am a huge men’s college basketball fan.  This stems from when my school won the NCAA Championship.  Best day ever.

10.  I have 8 piercings… 7 in my ears.

Admittedly, I get bored easily and decided that I was over the last blog template.  This layout feels a bit more open and easier to read.  Hope you all like it!

    YAY YAY YAY!!!! BECS with the 8 piercings!!!
    How are you, swetheart!? Congrats to all your awards – VEEEEEEEEEEEERY well deserved. I’ve recieved two more – but this time I’ll make it shorter. I guess to begin freaking off the people when they need always 15minutes to scroll down to the comment box, hehe…..
    So one of the next awards will be passed to you – better watch out!

    I’m very glad to hear that you’re doing fine and that you almost settled in (fine tuning now, right? ;) )
    I love your entire outfit – and the fingerless loves are HUGE!
    Gloves are so hot for Autumn and Winter! Love them – especially with fringes and studs.

    Wishing you and Mel a wonderful week – please give a hug and a kiss to each other from your blogger fellow in Germany ;)
    mwamwamuuuuaahh! BIIIIG KISS + MUUUUUUCH LOVE!!! s.

    Love your tag answers! And the floral skirt as well. I actually played the piano for over 10 years (yes, I took lessons as a little kiddo), then ignored it for a while – I’m trying to get back into it now. Can’t say I ever played any Celine Dion though ;) Hope you’re having a great week!

    Hey Becs!! Good to see you again!! I love the new blog’s layout and you look so fierce in those gloves! I always think they look great paired with dresses! I’ve checked out the Kate Moss collection last night and I think I like maybe one or two pieces but that’s about it. Have you heard about the Christopher Kane collection for next month??! I’m so excited! xxoxoxoxo

    Love the new template and your accessorizing. I think this season, in order to save money, I need to get creative with accessories.

    Lar and I bickered a lot when we were little, but were way too wussy to get too physical. Once I tried to bit her and ended up biting myself. That pretty much ended all physical violence.

    it may not be groundbreaking but this is certainly a really cute dress . it fits like a dream .. i love those gloves

    Becs! I got so excited when I saw your comment on my blog! You are so cute! And it is about time your looks were published! You should get more press more often, I say. Me and my sister used to fight a lot when we were younger too. Even though she is 5 yrs younger, she always won. I am too prissy and when she brought out the plastic trucks and began clonking me with them… the game was over… another loss for me! :0)

    Have a great night!

    I’m sorry to say I haven’t been catching up with my TV the way I should be.

    I think ever since Summer arrived, I’ve been “MIA” from the TV scene. ;)

    You rock florals like no other. I want this whole outfit!
