fashion friday...early edition

Hello. My name is Kasey and I love fashion. This is me. I'm standing in front of my garage, and as i stand here, i am realizing that the paint is peeling a bit. I guess i need to touch it up , and you probably wouldn't have noticed if i didn't say anything.

I decided I am going for a ride today...........last minute.



I'm going for a ride on our scooter, the metro. She's an inexpensive version of the Vespa.





I love this thing. She can hit about 45, and normally the hubby rides her to the train station starting in the spring.

Not today.....I get her.

And don't worry about the children, I tied them to a tree, so that I could get these pictures done.




The weather is just perfect. Do you see the green?




No snow in sight, and the grass is getting greener every day. Today is was 50 degrees, and I am excited. Something happened today {and nothing like this has ever happened}, and I can't tell you what yet, but it's going to be good.




Did you also realize that I'm almost at my 200th post? So, I see a party in the works, a big ole party.

Possibly a garden party?

*sigh*

I better go undo the children..........

Jemm said...

Great photos! Who took them? I always love the way your photos look. I tried Picnik, but it's SO SLOW it's time prohibitive. Do you know how to get the photos from Picnik onto my blog??

Laura said...

I haven't felt fashionable in years...maybe if I tie my kids to a tree....???

Tara said...

ADORABLE!! so fun, can I hitch a ride with you sometime to Anthro? Happy weekend! xo

Jen from Windy Ridge said...

YeeeeeHAW! Get your tickets for vampire land?

Lissa said...

You are so flippin' cute! The blog world would never have been the same without you!!! Love this, Love the vespa. A perfectly painted garage would not have looked nearly as cool in the pic! Its good to know that no children were harmed during the production of this post. ;) I am so coming to the garden party! But depending on when it is.... I may be late.

I remember when you guys bought the Metro. And those shoes....I have them too and they can be worn for exactly an hour without permanent damage. Cute post.

You crack me up! What a fun you have!!! I want one. Does it have a cute little sounding horn? If I had one I too would have to tie my kids (all 4 of them) to...something or get a couple side cars. How fun.

mrs boo radley said...

Cute! So glad to read that children were tied safely to a tree.

tracey said...

I have seen you on that scooter in person, so I can attest to the fact that you really do look that adorable in person on it! Just love your sense of style, and humor:)

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Hello Lady! Love the outfit (as usual) Love the scooter!! Can't wait for the news! And just in the interest of full disclosure....my real job is part-time on-line from home, and so I wasn't completely "unplugged". But I'll tell you something...having the computer on and not looking at my favorite blogs (like YOURS OF COURSE) is very hard...glad to know I have willpower! hee hee.

The Johnstone's said...

Absolutely LOVE the jacket. I've been trying to find a nice spring jacket and haven't been having any luck. Where did you find this beauty?

citysage said...

This is SO perfect! Somehow I am not at all surprised that you have an awesome scooter---so YOU!

traci said...

how funny. i love that scooter. how fun that would be.

Leanne said...

Ohhhh, I'm liking that scooter! My husband is looking for such a "train station ride!" Hmmm.

Your posts are very creative, Kasey. :)

Carolyne said...

I love that you are wearing high heels on your metro!!! It's so chic! (I think I have those same shoes from Target, and they are simply wretched to walk in.)

Your style is classic...like Audrey Hepburn.
