All about the dress:  Happy Sunday Funday, all!  How was yours?  I got to have brunch with some of two of my closest friends and then I kind of vegged out because this past week has been nuts.  Today I'm showcasing this awesome floral dress, called "The Rosie Dress", from Hell Bunny that I got in my home town of New Hope, PA (store name and online shopping site: 13 Vintage).  Though I like it, brown isn't typically a go-to color of mine, but pink and brown is such a great color combination so this number was a hard one to resist!  In order to both "winterize" and somewhat look forward into spring, I used my trusty mint cardigan (Target) and shoes (Guess via Marshalls) combination.  I feel the mint is both icy like winter, but because it's kind of a pastel too it's spring-like.  Rounding out this outfit is an amazing car brooch from Deer Arrow.  

Motivational:  Progress can feel like paint drying, no?  Don't we all sometimes feel as though we're running in one place?  Sometimes we have to remind ourselves to look back and remember where we started.  Maybe it does take a lifetime to achieve certain goals, but remember who you were one year ago, 5 years ago, and so forth.  What did he or she want?  Is what you have now something an older version of you would have killed for and felt very accomplished with?  Food for thought...

Music time!  Because this dress is called Rosie, I decided to name this blog post after a Kook's song..."Rosie."  Simple enough explanation!  Have a great rest of your weekend, friends!!

I've recently added two pages to this blog, one that catalogues posts named after songs and another that catalogues all of the concert stories.  Click the links on to see for yourself!  Happy Friday!

  2. The pink and mint green go so well together! This is a great transitional outfit. You look beautiful in florals!

  3. very cute, Lady ;-)

  4. You are totally right about mint being the perfect transitional hue!! I said it on IG, but this outfit is just *perfect*! You and Bristol should do a New Hope meet up :).

    I think part of the reason I love New Years is because it's tailor-made for taking stock of exactly the type of gradual progress that you don't always notice in the moment. I bet I'm going to be thinking a lot about what you said today…


  5. Love, love, LOVE this outfit on you! And brilliant idea to match the heels to your cardigan, what a gorgeous romantic outfit!

  7. Could your cardi and heels match any better?! Absolute perfection! I love them paired with this dress! And wonderful advice too...I definitely needed that reminder this week. :)


  8. Love the color combination on this outfit! And you are so completely right that that brooch really rounds up the whole outfit! Love it! <3

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

Win $100 Towards a JORD Watch!

What time is it?  THE TIME IS NOW.  Okay, now that I've gotten my favorite line from a Kids in the Hall sketch that I saw when I was 12 out of my system let's get to business!  The time is actually time to register for a watch giveaway and/or get a coupon, all thanks to JORD Watches. (Pronounced "Youd" as in like toad or road.  OR "Yoda" with no "a.")

Check out THIS LINK to try to get $100  towards a JORD watch and free sizing AND shipping.  This will go on for two weeks, so hop to it!  You can also get a $25 coupon with the code "blairosaurus" over the next two weeks too.  And if there's any menfolk out there reading, JORD has both women and mens watches.  Yay!

Ocean Front Members Only

Is this a style post only I could bring you or what?  Not only did I mix prints (three times, as the Forever 21 shirt is gingham, the ModCloth briefcase is dinosaur printed, and my true vintage skirt is an ocean front border print!) but I'm mixing vintage with modern fashion.  It seems that many vintage-y bloggers tend to stray from any trends, which is silly to me because these bomber jackets are SO comfortable and practical for between seasons weather (and frankly, Members Only IS a vintage brand)!  I tied this whole look together with using the Members Only Satin Washed Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy with these platform heels from Amazon by Dadawen.  I feel the burgundy bookends bounce off the greens and blues nicely.

How's everyone's week been?  Thanks for allowing me to take a week off!  Not only did I have obligations at the Comedy Central Stage and the Upright Citizen's Brigade stage this week, but I was hosting one of my very best friends who came to visit me!  …
