what I wore : kitty shoes and a pig bag!

Monday, September 24, 2012

the details
dress - c/o Romwe
necklace - Tooth necklace c/o Oasap
bag - Pig bag c/o Osasp
belt - estate sale
socks - Target
shoes - gift from Pony Chops
(Ps. You can see lots of close up pictures of my shoes in this post.)

SO much to say about this outfit! I could comment on every piece and tell you how much I love them. But just so I don't sound really ramble-y I'll just mention two things. One -this dress is so great. It's definitely the softest dress I own, which is weird because all my other lace dresses are really stiff and kind of itchy. I could easily wear this one to sleep and be more than comfortable. Plus how perfect is the color?!

Two - uh, tooth necklace! Hello! I'm always excited to add another tooth item to my collection of teethy jewelry. (I now have two teeth necklaces, three rings and at least five brooches) I wore this outfit to an orthodontist appointment where I was definitely thinking my orthodontist would think it was pretty nifty. If not, I at least thought he would appreciate the silly gesture of wearing a tooth necklace to go get the wires changed on my braces. Nope, I was wrong. One of the ladies who worked there pointed it out to him, his response was "Ohhhh, was that on purpose?" I awkwardly responded "Uhm, yes, kind of" to which he decided to tell a story about how gross teeth were. I really cannot be the only person that thinks it's weird my orthodontist things teeth are icky. I think I'll be passing on telling him about my little obsession with teeth and my ever growing collection of toothy items which definitely isn't limited to jewelry.
Beside the kind of awkward trip to my orthodontist, we had such a great time at the park the day we took these photos. We spend oodles of time touching touch me nots. (I really have never seen ones as large as the ones at this park, it's so much fun!!). We also had quite the bout of excitement - an owl flew out in front of and landed on a limb literally fifteen feet away. Then the cutie pie just sits there and stares at us. It was so amazing. I just stood completely still, stunned this massive, beautiful owl was sitting right there. I didn't even get to take a picture! Regardless, it was still one of the most amazing things ever, I've never been so close to an owl out in the wild. Just thinking about that owl again gets me all giddy.

Hope you're having a fabulous day! Today I'm going to finish decorating for Halloween, I'm pretty excited. I started a few days ago but really didn't even make a dent.
xoxo

  1. Yeah, that is really weird that you're ortho thinks teeth are icky! Though, he's probably seen some pretty gross ones... Ha ha! when I had braces, my ortho's hands shook really badly; i'm really not sure how my braces were on straight. It was terrifying! ha ha! And he smelled like cream corn. Ew.

  3. That's crazy about the owl! Lucky too! I've had a couple acquaintances recently get attacked/chased by owls, and we live in a fairly populated suburb.

  5. Hi Kaylah,

    I've been reading your blog for a long time, but I've only just plucked up the courage to follow it...I'm kind of techno-phobic when it comes to blogging, but now that I've set up my own It'd be rude not to say hello!

    Also, your tooth necklace is so cute!

    Bashfully yours,

    Rebecca xx

  6. What a cute bag. I have a bit of a collection of pig things, but alas no cute bags like that one! Neat story about the owl. I have only ever seen one in real life once before. So cute. I was excited to spot a hummingbird in put yard a couple of weeks ago. That was a first time I've ever seen one in the city. It was dining at our hibiscus tree! Wishing you a good week.

  7. The outfit is really amazingly pretty. :)
    I almost never buy clothes and stuff, but now I'm seriously thinking about getting a piggy bag, for it is one of the cutest things ever.

    It's awesome watching animals we don't often see. I've never seen an owl, just heard it.

  10. Wow, I had no idea those were called touch-me-not plants. My aunt's garden in Mexico had one and I was so amazed by it (and her avocado tree, lime tree, pomegranate tree, etc.)! I'm so glad my orthodontist wasn't strange. He was overly friendly, actually hahaha.

  13. Here's a pretty gross story about my orthodontist. I remember he was coughing during an appointment and then a few days later I was sick. Ew!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow... your orthodontist sounds rather lame... mine had terrible breath AND tried to adjust my braces with no gloves on! They actually had to put a note on my file that said 'wear glove.' I didn't know gloves were optional... o.O

    I never heard of Touch Me Nots. They sound pretty interesting.

  16. Every time I see a new outfit post from you, I think to myself, "this one is definitely my favorite" and then the next post comes out! But, this post... this post is amazing. Everything is perfection, the dress is absolutely gorgeous in lavender, the belt!, the necklace, the purse! and of course the shoes from the lovely Chantal! She is so so talented and so happy to see you wearing them :] Everything here is amazing and works perfectly together.

  19. Is your orthodontist old? If he is, maybe he's totally burned-out on teeth. ;)

    1. Surprisingly no. I'd peg him in his early to mid thirties.

    And I'm jealous of your owl story! I love unexpected visits from animals, but I have yet to see a wild owl up close! Although I did have to shoo a lost baby fawn across a country road, once.

  29. How in the world can an orthodontist think teeth are gross?? Haha! Wow, that poor guy. How'd you like it if your job grossed you out every day? :P

    Anyways, the color on that dress is just beautiful. I'm kind of a sucker for unique colors. :)

    1. I do have a hard time too! I normally just shop through the new items because it's just to hard to go through EVERY page of everything else.

  32. That belt is probably the coolest thing that I have ever seen ever. Paired with that dress? Perfect. :)

  35. My daughter just had her last three baby teeth pulled in prep for getting braces, and I really want to get them made into a necklace. She thinks it's totally weird, but I like the sentimentality.

  36. I'm obsessed with everything about this outfit! All the little details make it so extraordinary. You're an inspiration.

  37. Beautiful dress! It's my favorite color.

    Your orthodontist story reminds me of one time when I went to a cardiologist appointment with my anatomically correct heart necklace on (which, I must say, is pretty awesome) and the nurses acted like it was the freakiest thing ever. I mean, really? My doctor just said "Well, at least it's anatomically correct..."

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh geez. That orthodontist clearly should have shown some appreciation for the effort! Also, this outfit is perfect.

  39. I love every single thing about this outfit!
