WIW: Bones in the Neighbor's Yard

Was feeling a little too girl-next-door in this outfit - which is fine, because we're meeting relatives for lunch - but I had to add my cougar skull necklace in order to feel more like myself. It makes me feel much better to have this little skull nestled in the green grass - a little David Lynch, maybe. :)

I also wanted to wear boots, but we're going to Irvine, and the forecast says it's still really hot down there. Sandals it is... again. Sigh. I doubt I'll need the jacket, but it is there in case of Arctic A/C.

Diesel jacket - flea market
Skull Necklace - Pewter Wolf store on Etsy
Grass dress - Anthropologie
Softspots fisherman isherman sandals - ?
Dana Buchman bag - flea market

    I think you look FANtastic! Can't get enough of you in those citrons!! I hope you get to wear the jacket somewhere along the way because it's such a great fit and shade of blue too.

    Too bad it's too hot fot booties, but that can be the true fall variation soon ;-)

    I have this thing where it's just plain wrong to be wearing sandals if you're walking around through fallen autumn leaves! That's one juxtaposition I cna't get use to ;-)

    Great outfit! I agree with MNsara, you always look smashing in citron. I might need to check out that Etsy store - I like cougars and this looks like a really neat necklace.

    MNsara, I agree about the booties! Only leaves don't tend to fall around here - mostly palm trees where I am. I always feel like I'm missing out on the beautiful autumn leaves.

    Makrame, the Etsy seller is really nice. There are many different animals and other things, and he specially made a second cougar necklace for me so that my dad and I could have matching ones.

    Love that grassy dress on you! Like how the jacket works with it too.

  • Jonesy replied 6 years ago

    You look great! I love the interplay of the grass fabric with the faded/distressed denim jacket.

    Totally fun! Kitty in the grass! Love the necklace - no one said I was SYC on accessories, righr? :)

    So pretty!

    Pretty but twisted just like a David Lynch heroine.

    You look so pretty in this dress, Rae! But I wouldn't call it girl-next-door. The girls who live next door to me wear sweatpants most of the time. It's only girl-next-door if the girl is a gorgeous rock star!
