cool girl

July 11th, 2012

One of the tough things about throwing a party is that there’s never enough time to get everything you want done before the doorbell rings.  There have been times that I’m not even out of the shower by the time our parties are actually scheduled to start, because I’ve spent the last seven hours frosting a made-from-scratch cake or running out to buy last minute boxes of powdered sugar.  (I know, tough life.)

But Chad and I had a housewarming party a few weeks ago, and amazingly, shockingly, I actually had forty five minutes before the party started to get dressed and put on makeup!  I seriously couldn’t believe it.  And since I had all this extra, usable time, I figured I would snap some photos of my party outfit!

This LNA tank has already become one of my favorite things in my closet — I’ve been obsessed with them after buying this dress, so it was amazing to get to try out some of their other pieces!  I’m seriously in love.  And I figured I’d go updated-eighties with these Topshop hotpants — I fell in love with the print when I saw them online, and now I’ve worn them so many times.  Perfect for those hot Texas summer nights!

    That photo of you sitting in the chair with your legs up makes me want to buy a space chair, too!

    I AM SO anxious to hear who the winner is of the La-Z-Boy giveaway!!! Also – I agree on the guests coming too early! I love hosting (in our new home too) but there never seems to be enough time to execute all the plans I made!

    Hahah I love the photobomb by your husband while you were taking an outfit photo! Too funny. Those really are adorable shorts though! And that chair is too cool!

    You look great! The tank looks very good with the shorts and I bet the photo shoot was fun too. I love the way you accessorized.
