God Bless 'MERICA!

Patriotic songs have been in my head all weekend. I've had this outfit in mind to wear the Sunday before The Fourth for a couple of months now. Gosh I love this red skirt. I thought about wearing my white belt with this, but I thought that it might have been overkill? So I decided to do without it. 

I don't know if I've ever been too patriotic, but I've always loved Independence Day. And dressing in the flag's colors is something that I've always kind of tried to avoid... So I don't know why I've had such a change of heart. Whatever, change is good. 

On another note, Ryan has been looking into getting a smart phone. One for me too :) He has been researching like craaaaazy. See, even though we've been married for 1.5 years, we're still both on our parents' plans. So now we have to decide which service is best for us. Verizon? Sprint? T-Mobile? And which type of smart phone is better. iPhone? Droid? So far we've been looking into T-Mobile a lot ('cause it's cheaper than Verizon). They don't have the iPhone (boo), but after watching a "drop test" video on Youtube between the iPhone and the Galaxy S II, well, I guess I'd rather have the latter phone. (I've gotta say, that Galaxy phone does seem like a beast.) All smart phones are about the same anyway, right? I've always considered myself an Apple fan, but it's not the end of the world if I don't get an Apple phone. 

Do any of you, my lovely readers, have a smart phone? Which do you have? What do you like about it? 

I can't believe I scored this unicorn pin for $1. It is perfect.

  4. I know what you mean about not wanting to wake up early. I'm so not a morning person. I love your skirt. Too cute! Oh and I have T-Mobile and love them. I also just got a Nokia Lumia (windows phone) a couple months ago and I highly recommend it! I love everything about it! The design, how easy it is to use...everything. (And I also originally wanted the iphone)


  5. Nice look!

  6. Loving that bright red skirt, just lovely! Oh and I can't believe you got that unicorn pin for one dollar...such a great find!

  7. Matt has an iphone, and I have droid. there are things we love and hate about both. I will say however he is probably going to get a new droid when he gets back in town next month. He definitely looks way more trendy with his iphone, but I like mine better because I like swype texting... but maybe it's just because I'm used to it! I don't think you can go wrong either way! I have heard that the other services have more coverage than t-mobile, but we haven't had a problem on t-mobile (Matt uses a jailbroken phone) I also think t-mobile might offer the cheapest internet and plans over all, as you were saying. GOOD LUCK.

    OK, now on the outfit. I love this... the skirt, the blouse, the pin, and the SHOES! IT really is classy. I think as soon as the baby comes I'll be on the hunt for a red pencil skirt!
