come dress yourself in love

Somewhere, sometime I remember reading about a girl who got whisked away to prom on her date's bicycle handlebars. Today, as I contemplated choices of transportation, the thought immediately popped into my head and I promptly wheeled my Schwinn out into the sunshine.

At times I mourn the loss of high school and school dance functions where it was more appropriate to wear gowns other formal pieces. But, thanks to the days of my 'dress-up box,' I am no stranger to pretending. Today I decided to pretend as if it was a cool Saturday afternoon and I was on my way to a homecoming dance.

A cool, windy ride called for some sort of cover-up that I could shed the moment I stepped into the gym, thus the kitty sweater was pulled out of the closet and tossed on.

I love the look of the bright bold colors against the muted fall leaves.

I'm totally not a fan of pink but THAT dress looks pretty damn amazing. That's for sure.
Of course, all the composition is well-thought-out.
