COVERING MY SKIVVIES: Texan BBQ

Last weekend we spent our Saturday at a pig roast for Taylor's (our cousin) Birthday. We knew it was going to be a loooonnnngggg day of heat, fun, and grubbing so we dressed for the gig.

Interested about what's in my cup? Citrus iced tea & Tito's vodka is always refreshing.
Outfit Post.
On a hot/humid Houston day, I knew I had to wear light and airy clothing. My friend Joseph and I made this grey dress out of an old sports shirt 7 or 8 years ago. I wanted to layer a tank over so that I could eat all the grub I wanted without my tummy poking out.

Hankies are a must when you know the day is going to get a little messy! Wipe your face shiny faces:) problem solved. You better believe that knot came undone before the clock struck 12. Way too much food in the belly!

Ever get tired of glasses on, glasses off, glasses on, glasses off?

These are my favorite shades to sport to parties that start while the sun is up and continue way after the sun goes down. (we snagged these at a flea market in California.)

25 cents for those boots?!?! Thats like the score of the century.

don't you love when you're wearing an outfit that hardly cost you anything but looks good?! i love it! and sometimes (well, ever since i was a teenager and would read fashion magazines) i'd think about what i was wearing and how much it cost in case someone from a magazine asked me and took my picture. i know, it's crazy, but you never know!

kinsey french said...
