In the courtyard



  
  
 
Dress; Ann Taylor Loft;
Coat: Club Monaco;
Sweater, tights, boots: Target;
Necklace: Lovely giveaway gift, hazel & harlow.


Sometimes an ordinary day just needs a pretty dress.  I was feeling adventurous with the pink tights, so I paired it with the matching blue dress that I love so much because of its ruffles. I added the heart necklace I won from hazel & harlow's Valentine's Day giveaway and felt romantic all day. Since the weather was nice, we decided to do the daily photos at the historic courtyard. It's a picturesque place and many homecoming, prom and engagement photos are taken here in the warmer seasons.
On another note, I've been obsessed with the Olympics pairs figure skating competition for the last couple of days -- I haven't gotten into it so much since the Kerrigan/Yamaguchi days. I wish I could gracefully move on ice. I've been doing little ballerina-esque moves around the house all day, pretending I'm wearing little skates. Hehe.
Have a great night -- Trivia Tuesday coming soon!

  2. I love the bold pairing of the tights with that delicate dress, it's awesome. And that pendant is just stunning, truly.

    I remember watching figure skating devotedly as a child during the Kerrigan/Yamaguchi era! I haven't tuned in this year yet and I am feeling bad now...maybe I'll catch up online!

  4. So pretty! Love the ruffly dress with those pink tights!

    I'm so sad they are showing the figure skating in the middle of the day here so I can't watch it :(
    I guess New Zealand is not really into girly sports.
