What I'm Wearing: Country Bumpkin

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor. Won't you be mine? Mr. Rogers, anyone? That was my brother's favorite TV show when we were kids and for the life of me I do not know why a show with freaky puppets was ever popular. It's all a bit creepy to me. So there's that random subject for the day.

It's tax day, and I scrambled to get all of my taxes typed up and shipped off with all the checks attached to them. Blah, I hate taxes, but I am so glad to be done with them for the year.  I pulled out a dress that hasn't seen the light of day in a long time. I love it, but it's a bit too short without something underneath of it (at least for me). I paired it with some blue tights , a flower necklace, cowboy boots and a side braid. Cute and country.

Dress: TJ Maxx (Gift), Tights: JC Penney (Gift), Cowboy boots: Thrifted, Necklace: Forever 21

What do you think of this look?

  6. Love the little country vibe you have going on Kassi! The cowboy boots and braid go perfectly with the floral print. :) My taxes were done sometime in February...I can't handle the stress of waiting till April!

  12. So perfectly fresh and pretty!
    Love that flower necklace too. Plus, you just pulled off a Katniss braid! :D Haha, so jealous. My hair isn't long enough. Or more like, its layered so it looks ridiculous in a side braid.
    Anyway, adorable dress and boots!

  33. You almost look like Katniss from Hunger Games with your braid and boots. I think boots and a dress or skirt always is a winner.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
