A million bites

What can I say about this outfit? I don't know I don't even like it and I got like 35-40 mosquito bites while I was taking the pictures, and I kept jumping out of the frame. From an outside perspective its actually kind of hilarious because I burst into my house and threw all my stuff on the ground and was screaming for the bug bite goo. I was like a crazy person, got it all over my dress then decided to put more on. Realized there were more bites I missed. I've even got a bite on my FACE! Ah well, I really wanted to show you guys my new dress and talk about how "fall was in the air this morning...blah blah blah" and, "my denim jacket that's as old as the hills." But really, my bug bites remind me that its still summer for awhile longer and I shouldn't write my blog posts in my head before I take the pictures.
Oh, and here's my new dress, its shaped like a mullet. Full disclosure: I didn't actually wear the hat to work. People would have looked at me like I was nuts (not that they don't already).

  1. Sounds like a slightly harrowing outfit post! I feel your pain...we don't have mosquitos in Ireland but we have smaller equally vicious insects called midgets and I was attacked by an angry swarm of them during an aborted photoshoot a few weeks ago!Your outfit is very pretty though...the denim jacket and the dress are fab. I love the shoes too but I wonder would red or grey shoes go a little better with this particular outfit. You look fab anyway and one would never suspect you were being eaten alive by mosquitos! :)

  5. What a lovely dress! And your hat is also super cute. I am usually very animal friendly but I just wish mosquitos would be instinct. It would be a better world.

  9. Ugh I hate mosquito bites! Whenever I would end up some on my leg when I was little, I would act as if my face was clobbered with pimples. For some reason, I rarely get bug bites anymore. Maybe because I'm grown up (not really. i'm only 19) and would rather stay inside? haha Oh well. Poopers on the buggy bites. But I'm glad you showed us your darling dress! And yes, summer apparently still wants to stay with us just for a little while...

  16. Thanks for stopping by my blog and I'm so happy you did! You are gorgeous and your blog is quite lovely. I feel your pain on the mosquito and bug bites though. I feel like they are attracted to me, bc no matter what if they are around I'm the one getting bite and normally multiple times. On top of that, I'm allergic! Yikes.

    Hope you have some benadryl!
