Bright & Cheery OOTD

Hello readers! Today I posed for my OOTD photo in my backyard, despite the bone chilling wind. I think I made my pledge to take outdoor photos a tab prematurely!

Boots: Anthropologie Gilgarran Boots

Ideally, I wouldn't have paired these boots with this dress, but they were the closest to the door. I'm a really lazy dresser. I just wear whatever is clean and easily accessible. It takes me 15 minutes tops to get ready in the morning and that's child/husband related interruptions. Before children I was pretty high maintenance, but I've streamlined my routine over the years. ;)

I just entered to win a $100 Anthropologie gift card for at In Pursuit of Pretty Things! You should too! 


  1. I love this, the yellow and blue are stunning!

  2. Thanks, Marcella! I hesitated to buy the cardigan with this dress because it's really matchy matchy, but I really love this particular shade of yellow. I'm sure it'll get tons of wear. :)

  3. welcome back, Lyzi! You look fabulous! Double points for throwing it together within 15 minutes and triple points for going bare leg outside when the snow is not melting ;-)

  4. oh man. you are so great. i totes want to see this dress on you sometime without a cardigan btw. i bet it looks more amazing on you than on the model on the anthro website. xoxo

  5. @Inkmark: Tomorrow I will be wearing my $40 Rensselaer T-Straps with bare legs to a meeting. Hopefully I don't freeze to death. ;)

    @Kate: You are always too good to me! :D

  6. That dress is so pretty! Love the color combination of this outfit. :)

  7. Just found your blog! I love your colour pairing.

    I hear ya when it comes to getting dressed post kids. I wear the same small rotation of shoes just because its easiest to wear what's by the front door. It results in so many cute shoes not getting worn because they're stored in the upstairs closet.

  8. We just bought our place over the summer and I have a box of shoes in a super cold storage room and those shoes get 0 love in their U-Haul box. :P
