our shoes were our show boats

Do you ever notice that when a song gets stuck in your head, it typically replays the same part over and over again? Even when you sit and think the song through, the moment you stop sitting and thinking it through, the tune tends to skip right back to a particular spot, like a record player's finicky needle.

For instance, whenever I get Bon Jovi's "It's My Life" stuck in my head (and it seems to somehow creep in there at least once a month, despite my never hearing that song anywhere else but in my own head), it's always on the "WOW-WOW" guitar part in the beginning of the song.

Whenever it's Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir," I always loop the part of the song where Robert Plant croons "ooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooyeah... baby, I've been flying/dying/crying/(I can't ever make out what he actually says here)."

And so on and so forth.

Today, I have one teeny blurb from The Decemberists' "On the Bus Mall" endlessly looping in my noggin. Which accounts for this post title, as this actual post has little to nothing to do with shoes. Or boats. Or shoes shaped like boats.

I know, I'm disappointed too.

I love silk tops. I found this shirt on sale at Fossil for $19.99 and knew it had to come home with me. I mean, silk and with feather print? I am sold!


  1. That fish necklace is too cute!!! And so is this top. I can see why you had to take it home with you.

    My friend had a song stuck in his head last week, didn't know the words to the chorus. I told him what they were, but couldn't remember any of the other lyrics, so I just had the chorus on repeat in my head thanks to him. Shoot, now it's in my head again.

  2. I love that feather print it's sooooo cute!!! I am a sucker for silk too!

  3. Just catching up on my blog reading here. Great OOTD, as usual. love that top. and thanks for sharing your travel pics, the madewell skirt btw looks tailored for you :)

  4. I love this look!!

    And can I say how much I love "The hungry little caterpillar" on the bookshelf behing you!??? LOL

  5. Haha, I'm always getting a single line stuck in my head! XD
    Great outfit! The colors work really great (especially the jacket). :D

  6. What a gorgeous top. You look great :)

  7. Thanks! Now I have that Bon jovi song stuck in my head! Hehe. That's a lovely silk top. $19.99 is a pretty good deal ... Silk items don't come much cheaper than that these days.

  8. That silk top is really pretty...great find!

  9. I didn't know Fossil had pretty clothes like that. If the Bon Jovi song stays stuck in my head, I'll be back with a gift of my own ;-)

  10. Thanks.
    Fossil is across from my store.
    Guess who will be nosing in there tomorrow on break????

  11. I'd much prefer having songs stuck in my head than listening to my co-worker sing...badly.

    You look adorable! I love the skinnies on you and that top is so pretty.

    Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

  12. i seem to always have "how do you solve a problem like maria?" from the sound of music in my head. or the inspector gadget theme song....

    this weekend, listening to radiolab, head this one on "earworms" (songs stuck in your head), then i see you post. thought you might enjoy:

  13. Cute outfit! I noticed you are always covering up your pretty face with your hair! Show that perty face, gf!
