Rhapsody in blue

Top: Banana Republic; Skirt: thrifted, vintage;
Belt: BR, gift from Marilou; Wedges: Bongo, thrifted.

I know what you're probably thinking -- that I am completely crazypants for wearing this outfit in the middle of December. But on Friday we had a strange and beautiful day where the high temperature was hovering around 70 degrees in the afternoon, and I had to take advantage of the nice day by wearing something I had been saving for spring. Welcome to Georgia -- our greatest export is weather confusion.

Because of the nice day, I decided to wear a darker color palette and my new-to-me gladiator wedges. I broke my 30 for 30 shopping ban for these, as well as for a few vintage dresses that still need to be hemmed. It was worth being bad.

Speaking of being bad, I've been playing catchup lately. There's some giant holiday at the end of the week, and I have to finish getting people gifts. Apparently finger-painted portraits and macaroni necklaces stopped being cute when I was 7, so I'm currently looking for new alternatives.

Nothing says "I love you" like a peanut butter pinecone bird feeder, right?


  1. As I was getting ready this morning, I looked at myself and decided I was wearing a very JoAnn outfit today. I think it's the red sweater belted over a dress combo. Anyway, thought you'd like to know that your infiltrating my wardrobe.

  2. I totally missed out on the great weather Fri because I was stuck inside all day working and playing catch up! I didn't realize it was THAT nice - aw!

    You look fantastic as usual, JoAnn!

  3. That top is great! I love Banana, they make the best silky little tops. Blue is a great color for you!

  4. You are, indeed, 100% crazypants. But I envy your warm weather! And adore that romantic top on you.

  5. Hi JoAnn!

    I found you through Monkeyface! I love your blue top, the colour just pops! And your background shots are always gorgeous!

  6. I personally would love a pinecone feeder, so don't sell yourself too short!

    I just discovered your blog and I love all the how-tos as well as all your adorable outfit shots. Lovely!

    Glad to have found you!

  7. You are not at all crazypants for taking advantage of such beautiful weather! I love the sandals!

  8. Enjoy it! It looks like it's practically summer in comparison to baltic Dublin right now so I'm uber jealous!

  9. Whoa that's buts, 70 degrees? It's been hovering around 55 here, complete with pouring rain!!

    This outfit is lovely. I really like the blue tank!

  10. And by "whoa that's buts" I clearly meant "nuts." I need to start drinking coffee again =P

  11. You look soo ladylike today my dear, this ensemble works together very well!

    Sadly dressing as pretty as you is not a luxury we can afford here! I miss you very much yknow!

    I think about you always but my work is a little too stressful right now! Its really an unfortunate thing so I may have to look for another job!

    Better New Year for us!

  12. love the skirt! I'm looking for long skirts right now, you wear it beautifully.


  13. The neckline of this blouse is so stunning -- unique and flattering. And how marvelous that you were able to dress for the weather and enjoy this blissfully balmy day.

  14. I was mightily confused when I saw the lack of sleeves and snow on the ground and was all ... no way, it looks like it's autumn there. Then I read that... oh right, you live in Georgia. CURSE YOU. Curse you and the cute blue outfit and wedges that look fierce. Goodness.

  15. It was 83 here for the first day of winter. Sandals and tank dresses! crazy....

    I love the dry fall woodlands shot ...


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
