layering (yes, i'm hyping layering again, don't judge me) can help you transform a few pieces into very different outfits!
for today's outfit I layered an orange and white shirt over one of my favorite courtney green (yes, courtney green, not kelly green, because no one named kelly loves this color as much as I do) dressess. oh & if that didn't excite you, my pup waffles joined my for this post!

ahoy there, today's post is a nod to the nautical!
but since navy is such a key color for nautical nonsense, and since i don't usually wear navy, i do nautically a little different than the norm. instead of anchors && sailboats, I go pirate-esuqe...

alright matey, let's set sail.

p is for poised, polished && pretty in prep.
I've been watching a lot of old gossip girl reruns lately, and loving the preppy blair a la season one and two, sighhh. so although today's look is not very blair-esque, I was thinking of the preppy princess when I found myself inspired to put some prep in my step for today's outfit.

Sir Waffles

I wanted to take this monday post to introduce you to the new man in my life, waffles! We have only known each other for a few weeks, but I could not imagine living without him. Although no one is person, he is quickly learning to become the perfect gentlemen. So now without further adieu, I am going to hand the lease over to waffles himself, so he can introduce himself properly.

Hi there, I'm sir Waffles Leopold Nelson Fowler, but since I just met you & I already love you, you can call me Waffles. I am a fifteen week male old french bull dog currently residing in the great state of AZ. I hope you don't mind while I temporarily take over Color Me Courtney to tell you a little bit about myself...
