Outfits: Wise Owl

Outfit Details:
Dress & Hat: Modcloth, gift from the Mr.
Shoes & Bag: Thrifted

Happy Friday and Happy Valentine's weekend darlings! 

This time of year always finds me a bit preoccupied and far far away from the internet as I'm busy as a honey bee.   For me it's Fine Arts season - which means I'm up to my hats writing dramas and working with students on both drama and musical presentations for a local Fine Arts Festival we participate in.  Definitely a tad grueling as students have been in and out of my house almost every day of the week for the past month or so, but more so, a whole lot of fun and creativity blooming is on my side of the mountain, so I simply could not complain.   Yes, I do love this time of year despite the mounds of snow that sit in my front yard.  

Anyhow, these days find me craving comfort & practicality over cuteness, donning oversized sweaters, boots, and skinnies rather than the normal dress and tights uniform I tend to gravitate to quite frequently. Um yeah, it's rather hard to be teaching students drama parts in a dress when you are up and down, bending over, crawling on the ground...etc etc.  No one needs a free show - especially 13 year old boys...yikes.  However on days out and about I will take the opportunity to slip into a dress - and this owl print one is really taking the cake for me as of late.  Thanks to the Mr. who picked it out for me last year as one of my bday gifts.  

Enough chit chat.  The weekend is here and I'm ready to celebrate.  How about you?

Catch up with you later!
Love Bunches, 


  1. I am totally in when it comes to comfortness over cuteness these days. I still find it hard to style my bump and then its cold on top of that so I just go for skinnies and sweaters most of the days ;) anyway, this dress is really cute and I love how you paired it with the red accessoires!

  2. that dress is the sweetest, the print is just adorable! and i really like your little bag as well:-) hope you have a lovely weekend! xo

  3. Love how at first glance the little owls look like a floral print! Cute!

    Winter in general leads me towards a less-cute formula: jeans and as many layers as I can fit without looking like a marshmallow on top! Hehe

  4. Great outfit. Your Mr. Has great taste!

    I laughed out loud at the prospect of you giving free shows to the students. What you're doing with them sounds very interesting and fulfilling. Good luck with it all. xo

  5. The owl print on this dress is just so cute! I love how you layered the long sleeved top underneath. The entire blue color palate in this outfit is really speaking to me. You look great! Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. I always think it is so cool you help these kids do all their fine art/ drama competitions!

  7. Ha! I find myself wanting to play ping-pong at work pretty much every day, so that cancels out heels and dresses, for the most part. So I understand, though not for exactly the same reasons :) Your work sounds busy but really fun too! Glad you're finding a reason to wear a dress every now and then, and that your husband picks out great gifts!

  9. Loving the cute owl print on your dress! I think I have the same target blouse you layered underneath, so this is making me wanting to layer it under a jumper! Good luck with your students, it sounds really busy but also like a ton of fun! xoxo!

  10. Lovely outfit, beautiful photos. :)

  11. Lovely outfit!
    I like your red knit cap♡


  12. What a fun and cute outfit! Love the blue with the pop of that bright red hat! Sounds like your busy busy at work. It must be hard work teaching kiddos drama/music all day! I wouldn't want to be crawling around in a dress in front of 13 year old boys either! Ha! Stay warm and I can't wait to see more posts from you as Spring gets closer!

  13. I love how many creative projects you always have your hand in! Sounds like a great way to be busy. I have been all about comfort the last couple months and it has made for some boring times around the blog ;) Love your layers and that is such a cute print!
