1970s Cowgirl

Hey, all!  This time of year is so crazy weather wise, and I feel like that's true regardless of where you live!  Some places it takes forever for spring to kick into full force, some areas go from winter to summer weather overnight, and a lot of places have a lot of wind, snow, and rain with a mix of different temperatures.  I love me a long sleeved dress this time of year!  Especially if I'm wearing boots with it!  It's the best of all worlds and is perfect for weather that can't make up it's mind!  

I'm not the world's biggest pink girl, especially with my red hair, but this dress (Charming Contrast Shirt dress from ModCloth, which is on sale NOW!) really called to me.  When I first tried it on I wasn't sold (probably because I don't love myself in pink) but eventually I came around and now love it.  In fact, it's a good necessity dress for all kinds of weather so I'm super glad I have it!  Plus I love the 1970s, even early 1980s feel to it.  
I got these Nine West boots at the start of winter and am so glad I did.  I was at a baby shower this weekend during a snow storm.  The snow wasn't sticking to pavement, but I was wearing a long maxi dress that touches the ground.  These boots were perfect to give the dress some lift and not get all wet, as I had made that mistake before.  (THIS is the dress I wore to the baby shower that matched the boots perfectly; I only got one picture of myself in the dress and it's with the mother-to-be and the couple is keeping the pregnancy off social media, otherwise I'd share!)  Anyway, these boots are a very practical staple in my wardrobe!!!  They're from Nine West and have appeared to have sold out, but here are some other options from Nine West!  My Dooney and Bourke bag is also sold out, but here is a similar one.
How do YOU like to dress in the spring?  Do you have any styling tricks to be dressed correctly for all contingencies while staying stylish?  Sound off in the comments!!

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!

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!  …
