And if it was warm, she wouldn’t wear much more

I think I love her

Every time I wear this hat, I can’t help but think of that song.  I was still just a twinkle in my mom’s eye when it was popular, so I never realized until I was much older just how dirty those song lyrics were!

    What a perfect skirt! I love the color, but the pleats are my weakness – and the length is crazy flattering. You rock a beret like nobody’s business 😉

    What a cute and bright outfit! I love the beret and I’ve never heard of that song, but it is PERFECT!

    LOVE IT!! And I’m so jealous of your curl set!! My pin curl results were epically comical, lol

      thanks. now that the humidity has dialed down a bit, i can get away with these types of styles. have you tried the caruso steam rollers? that’s what i used here, and they worked quite well.

        I have not, but I just headed straight to a new browser window and hopped onto Amazon to check them out.

    This is such a pretty color combination! And I’m definitely inspired to throw a trench over my colorful midi skirt now!

    Adorable. Amazing how you sometimes make NYC look Parisienne. I haven’t been on your blog in a while, so I may have missed this- but I’d like to see how you rock vegan leather. Copped a pair of jeggings from H&M and I’ve been having anxiety on how to rock them with something other than a basic oversized sweater.
