I Keep A Close Watch On This Heart of Mine

DSC_0171
So, Johnny Cash is the newest theme in my life at the moment. And by theme I mean that he just kind of keeps popping up randomly, but frequently in different areas of my life. Taking this as a sign, I decided to listen to some of his music, and now I can't stop. Just last night, because I have such a busy social life, I had a play dress up and listen to Johnny Cash jamboree. It was just as exceptional as I'm exaggerating it to be, let me tell you. And today, when I found myself wearing black and stomping around in kick ass boots, I couldn't help but feel like I was channeling "the man in black" himself, though he probably never really wore purple tights or cameo pins.

  1. I love how you take little influences from your life and create an outfit from them. I must learn to do the same! You're looking lovely in those purple tights and are making me want to wear more of my colorful tights before it's too late.. eeee. <3

  2. I can never get enough Johnny Cash! I just saw this pop up on my tumblr and freaked.. no lie - I just thrifted almost the same dress but in red and wore a brooch and colored tights with it just yesterday. Is it from Express circa 1990? Just curious:) Guess great mind think alike?..hehe. Anyhow you look adorable from head to toe!

  5. Cash was the man!!!! I loved his music so much growing up and then geeked out when he had a re-occuring role on Dr. Quinn as a sheriff. I don't think there was ever a song he sang that was bad.

    And I love that he influenced your style :) This outfit is very cool.
