go ask alice

On Monday morning  our place seemed cooler than usual so I checked the forecast on my phone before getting out of bed and it read sixty (60) degrees!!  After running outside to confirm that yes, the weather was almost cold (by Floridian standards), my first thought was, "tights! I can wear tights!"  This shows you where my priorities lie.  Anyways, I had already chosen this outfit the night before and that morning I picked white tights to pair with it (obviously) and the result is a little Alice (you know, of the Looking Glass and Wonderland). Blue dress, white tights, black flats= recognizable Halloween costume with minimal effort.   Slap a top hat and a colorful blazer on your man and there's your Alice/ Mad Hatter couples' costume for the lazy party-going pair. I digress, back to the tights.  Turns out that mosquitoes hardly see tights as an obstacle to prevent them from my delicious blood, and I foolishly chose a photo spot that's home to swarms of them.  In my excitement about the dropping temperatures I assumed the buggers would have died off but let's be real: 60° isn't really even that cool, objectively speaking. I'm just so friggin stoked about Fall being here and perception makes reality, right?

I love this turquoise dress and stripe blazer! The necklace is beautiful as well, I am a huge fan of Fashion by Alicia so I stopped by! Love your pictures as well as your style, is that the ring from the swagbag? I love Trice's blog too, wish I lived in FL!

Actually, you might also say Alice of Brady Bunch . . . but only if either of these Alices were as stylish and fantastically stunning as you!!! I love your dress! So pretty!

You've just reminded me I need to check out Maurices! There's one not far I've been meaning to pop into to. Very cute outfit!

Great outfit! Love that ring. Mosquitoes... I haven't had to worry about them here in Ontario for over a month now hah. You've also got me thinking I should be Alice for Halloween... because I am lazy.

I love that cardi! I recognize it from our swap, and I loved it!!

This is such a cute outfit on you! I don't think many other people could pull it off. But now I'm thinking Alice in Wonderland could be a great idea for a costume... If you want to get away from mosquitoes come to Newfoundland. There can't be bugs because it's too windy for them to live! haha.

You are gorgeous. I am writing you because you have previously advertised for risingtaste.com which is a scam. Please read my post and pass it along:

Adoreable! I really love this look :)

yay for tights weather! :) Nobody styles stripes like you do - love the way you picked up the black and white with your necklace, belt and tights. Perfect with this vibrant dress!

I spent one single day sans tights this year and as pleasant as that was I can see why you wanted your tights back - I was definitely missing the extra pop of colour. If I ever move somewhere gloriously warm I am most definitely getting a tattoo or two on my legs to liven things up a bit ;)
