Calvin Klein Silk Dress (thrifted)

Most awkward picture taking day ever. The first location I went to was really busy so I ended up over here and as soon as I had the tripod set up, everyone and their dentist's sister showed up. It's really hard to take pictures with everyone parked right across from you, staring....
Navy really seems to be the one color that goes with everything. It works with warm or cool tone colors, it works with neons and acts as a anchor point for crazy patterns and it flatters pretty much every skin tone. It's also not as harsh as black and it works as a balance between a softer pastel color like this sea-foamy green dress and the stark black trench. Its been the one color that I've tried to incorporate into my wardrobe more and more and it works really well with colors like burgundy, olive green, white and beige that are pretty dominate in my wardrobe.
I know, the title really has nothing to do with this post but I freakin' love that Garth Brooks song. When I was fifteen I wanted to get a gray horse and have his show name be Mr. Blue and have the chorus of that one be our theme song. Weird yeah, but my barn buddies and I had theme songs picked out for all of the barn horses. One horses was a stopper (he would come to a halt right in front of a jump no matter what and his riders would fly over the jump, minus him) and his theme song was Another one bits the Dust by Areosmith. I use to have a theme song picked out for Dollar but he's grown up so much over the past year that it really doesn't work for him any more. He needs something awesome and cowboy-ish now so I've got to dig around through some of my older country albums. We've been riding him mostly bareback and in the old western saddle lately and I swear, he makes the cutest cow pony we've been having him pony Merrylegs around and it's adorable to see the great big black horse leading the little black pony around. (Ponying is where you're on the lead horse and you're leading the other horse.)
Se what happens? I get started on the ponies and I wont shut up about them. No wonder everyone starts rolling their eyes when I mention ponies, but it's so hard not to talk about their furry noses and their adorable ears! (Eeek, not to mention adorable pony knees when they jump!)
Edit Alert: I'm an idiot. Another one Bits the Dust is Queen and I shall forever feel the shame for that. Not like I worship Freddie Mercury or anything like that...
