Light As A Feather

Blouse: Sears   Skirt: c/o Rire Boutique   Bag: c/o Wholesale Dress   Heels: Rue 21   Ring: c/o Oasap   Beanie: garage sale   Belt: borrowed

I think I'm ready for fall guys...well, for fall fashion at least! Haha, I love summer heat, because it's the only time of year I actually stay warm for the most part. I have problems...during winter I remain frozen the majority of the time. It's annoying, but I've mentioned this to Patrick, and he's already offered to help take care of that problem. Haha, I just rolled my eyes and said, "I'm sure you will!"

This new feather print skirt from Rire Boutique is definitely a new favorite in my closet...I mean, for one thing it's feather print. Another, it's a maxi skirt. And finally, it's half sheer. I just love that about these kind of skirts. You might think maxi length is so modest, but when it's half sheer, it's like a sexy surprise. Yup, definitely a winner! I'm already thinking of so many ways I could wear it.
And just for you guys, here's a promo code that will get you 20% off! Just use trendy20 at checkout.

I'm breaking out my beanies guys! You know that fall is near when that happens. Haha, they're my absolute favorite kind of hat. Although I still remember what my guy friends called them last year. They joked around about how they're "dump hats" since from the back it looks...well, yeah, like someone's head took a dump. What can I say, they're silly guys! Haha, and I just played along. My logic? "Well, when I wear a 'dump hat' it just means my hair was looking rather dumpy this morning, so I'm covering it up with the appropriate hat."

Anyway, you know that drive-in movie I told you about? It was such a good time! Just like I said, there were large families everywhere, making it a light-hearted atmosphere. After we turned the bed of Patrick's truck into the ultimate lounge area (seriously, we brought an air mattress, a giant foam one, layers of blankets, and tons of pillows!), we just kicked back and were amused over the silly things we heard kids say around us. 
Then the movies started (at drive-ins, they always feature two movies back to back). First one was the new Ice Age, and I absolutely loved it! Seriously, I'm a kid at heart. Patrick was laughing at my reactions because I pretty much giggled throughout the whole thing. He said the film was just that much more enjoyable to hear me laughing. :)

Next up was the Batman movie, and it's a good thing I've already seen it (epic movie!), because I couldn't keep my eyes open all the way through it. Haha,  these things start around 9:30 so it's dark enough, and don't get over till way into the early morning hours. So I took a little cat nap until Patrick whispered urgently into my ear: "Wake up, wake up, wake up! This is the good part!" Haha, so I got to see the major ending at least.

Overall, just another fun night out with the boy. :)
The title of this post really fits not only my skirt, but my attitude lately. I feel so buoyant on the positive things in life lately, it's like I'm floating.

Ali Hval said...

LOL I love that you guys turned the back of his truck into a cool lounge area--it sounds pretty chill, especially with the air mattress. Kind of sounds like the life! ;) And it sounds like you had a super fun time, even though you had to stay up really late (I'm the same way, girl. I can't stay up past my super early bedtime of 10:00pm... maybe it's cause I wake up so early? haha)

And oh my, that skirt is rather the sexy surprise! I love the sheerness of it, and that pattern is so unique. What a fun piece! <3 It goes so well with your fringe purse and those way cool heels.

Maiken said...

a drive-in movie seriously sounds like the coolest date ever. too bad we don't have that opportunity here in Estonia.. anyway, when it's late and I'm watching a film at home I almost always fall asleep in the middle of the film, no matter how awesome the film or my company is :P
btw, your new maxi skirt looks fantastic in pairs with the platforms and I love the pattern as well.
oh and yeah, in Estonia we already have this rainy and kind of autumn-like weather. it started when my vacation had ended :P

Mica said...

Love the print on your maxi skirt! :)

Really like it worn with the tee and heels combination too!

Sounds like you had fun at the movies - and were very comfortable with the mattress! We always end up squished in the back with the seat down trying to make enough room to stretch out and see our the back. Never comfortable enough to fall asleep!
