Not Gaga for Gaga??

 Outfit: Blouse: Thrifted, Skirt: Thrifted & Revamped, Belt: TJ Maxx, Boots: Gifted (Kohl's)

This is the other skirt that came from my creative time in California. It was about seven times to big and too long but I saw some serious potential in this little puppy, not that it barked at me and told me it was special or anything but more of I couldn't get enough of the awesome print. I'm pretty happy with how my little puppy has turned into a dog...you know what I mean.
This weekend Me and Sir Matt celebrated our one year anniversary even though it was a month ago. We decided to celebrate it late because we wanted to separate it from all of the craziness of the holidays. We're both REALLY easy going when it comes to stuff like that so we just spent the day together with some good food and some good fun. I can't believe it has already been a year. It feels like yesterday that I was absolutely gaga over this boy I was dating (p.s., still gaga, but not for Lady Gaga, for Matt), talking on the phone to my sisters about how much I like this California boy, them placing bets on me marrying him, me blushing at their bets and then consequently giving in and marrying the man of my dreams! I love you Matt, this has been the best year and the first of many!

  6. So cute!! Happy anniversary.
    As for Lady Gaga, I think Joan Rivers said it best when she said how about a little more lady and a lot less gaga :)

  12. I've been meaning to return your comment and MAN I am upset I didn't sooner, because you are one of the cutest things I've come across since, I don't know, my own puppy.

    I am so looking forward to seeing your outfits and reading about your charming life with Sir Matt!

  15. I love your outfit so much here. Both the top and skirt are so lovely and look perfect together, such a great combination and very creative. I also like the DIY tutorial in your last post. I'm going to read over it a bit more now. I just started sewing lessons a week ago so I am interested in this sort of creative interests right now.
