Romwe has sent me some really nice things in the past, but this shirt may well be my most favorite. My sister and I had a very Daria/Quinn relationship growing up, so anytime I see an illustration of two girls, one sorta punk and the other sorta girlie, I always think of her. She was slightly weird when we were in school (in the best possible way), doing and wearing whatever she wanted. She really never seemed to care what anybody thought of her. I admired it. Especially because I was always much more image conscious. If anything, she pulled me to her side as we got older.

I actually just saw her yesterday at our housewarming BBQ. Lots of friends came by and we cooked tons of yummy food. My sister threw a blanket on the ground, and before you knew it we were all piled in the yard like hippies at a festival. We built a horseshoe pit and hung rainbow bunting. Between Corey and I, we were able to get plenty of great pictures. I'll try to post those on the blog later this week. It was a whole lot of fun. Hope you guys had a good weekend too!

Also, if you entered in the Beta Boutique giveaway when I first posted it, you may want to reenter. Blogger had a major hiccup last week and lots of posts vanished for a few hours. I was lucky to get my posts back, but I did loose all the comments. So, just go ahead a reenter to be on the safe side. And if you haven't entered yet, what's wrong with you? Do it! ;)

So cute. I love this funky, casual look, especially the AA riding pants! Glad to hear the BBQ was a success! Sorry to have missed it. Looking forward to the photos. We floated the Buffalo River this weekend, and it was COLD. Brrr. I'm so ready for May to feel like May. Bring on the Arkansas heat. xo.

My sister is pretty much the most important person in the world to me, so I always enjoy hearing about other people's sisters. Yours sounds rad, and so does the housewarming BBQ! As for your outfit, everything from the beautiful color of the tee to the quirky little hat is just right. :)
