...RosiePosie! She's always hiding under our bed when I come home because I kick open the door and throw my bags down. What? You guys don't come home like that? Weird! And then I end up spending an hour or two on my hands and knees trying to coax her out. Am I supposed to learn a lesson in here somewhere??

I'm wearing a JCPenney gold beaded necklace (free - buy similar!), Gap dress I snipped into a shirt ($8), Forever 21 striped skirt ($7 - buy it!), and Fitzwell black flats ($75 - buy it!).

You've still got two days left to win this Little Red Dress! Perfect for the summa time!!

  6. That skirt was only $7?  Wow!  I'm always wary of horizontal stripes, but it looks great.

  7. I like this Parisian look - it's stylish, uncluttered and simple. And comfy!
    And you match the furniture :)

    Poor cat... go easy on the kitty. I am sure that all she wants is to be cuddled by you.

    Hate to do a shameless plug but I just wrote a blog post about modesty/intentional dress and I would love to hear what you and my fellow readers have to say about it, if you're interested.

    love the simple black and white.  :)  And it looks like kitty is finally coming around.  Our cat was a hider for years, but now sleeps with me and lets me rub it's belly.  Some cats are just s-l-o-w to adjust I guess.  Trust issues?

  17. Oh I come in exactly the same way and my dog used to hate it, now she doesn't bother moving just lifts her head up as if to so 'oh great she's back disturbing my peace and quiet!' lol  Lovely outfit, the stripe skirt is lovely.

  18. You look great, cute sunnies. It is nice to see Rosie out and about, she is so photogenic! I have been living in my F21 bodycon skirts, I love them! And you can't beat the price.

  19. You look so California chic in this picture!  Love that Rosie made an appearance :)

  20. I enter my house the same way, except it's usually a shoulder push, much like the SWAT team breaks down doors.  Sometimes there's loud words spoken, depending on whether or not it is pouring and I'm trying to get inside before a monsoon washes me away.

    PS - I love your cat-eye sunnies are being worn and there is a kitty-cat in the picture :)

  26. Awww kitty! So cute. She looks a little suspicious in the first pic. :)
    I love this skirt on you!! You always look fab in it!! You inspired me to buy one last time I was at F21. I haven't worn it yet. Might have to bust it out this weekend!

  27. yay kitty! I love kitties, but stupid hubby is allergic :( I make do by loving other people's cats, lol.
    You look great! I love stripes. And I love all of your dresses changed into something else. I need to keep an eye out for dresses that I like the fabric but only half fit, then make them into something new :)

  28. Nope. I do NOT come home like that. I come home and strip down to my underwears. It only took me a couple times to learn to check to see if Spencer was having friends over.

    Seriously, can't get over how awesome that skirt is.

  29. LOL, what a sweet little (traumatized) kitty!  It's amazing how our pets make us smile.

    Does she have an "M" on her forehead?  Our dear departed Fluffy had one and our vet said he was a Maine Coon cat (and like his name, he was a fluffy cat).  Just wondering if RosiePosie might be too.

    BTW, great combo!
