05 July 2013


Of the things I've read about fashion bloggers one that really resonates with me is that sometimes it seems as though we are simply playing dress-up for a few moments and then go and put on our real clothes. Personally, I wear every single thing that appears here because if I had the time for that I'd definitely post more often (let me say, I'm sorry I've been so absent lately). Here is a pretty good example of how I look at the end of a long day when I might not normally want to photograph and share how I looked. I'm a crinkly-wrinkly mess, standing in the rain looking tired but it is what it is. Oh, and I was feeling super excited about the Fourth of July so it was a week for breaking out all my favorites in red, white and blue!

  1. I LOVE this! I have been into jumpers like crazy lately! I hate when people assume that, I wear my clothes all day too. Which is why mine are pretty "safe", I wear the clothes to work.

  2. really pretty dress!

  3. love the denim & b/w stripes combo. classic!

  4. I love "real posts" like this, because let's face it: after a full day we all have wrinkled clothing and tired faces on (though let me say that you don't look tired at all!)

  5. Haha yeaaa i look like that towards the end of the day, too.What can ya do, right? And i LOVE your dress- especially how you layered a striped tee underneath. Where did you happen to get it?

  6. It's all good! I'm wrinkly in a lot of my outfit posts because I actually wear the clothes too! I think you look super cute and festive here. I love those red flats!

  7. Crinkly, wrinkly realness. I really love this dress! I'm wrinkly all the time.

  8. That dress is very cute, love how you styled it with the red shoes =)

    Ps: i'm doing a fashion-related survey for my MSc dissertation, 5 mins, much much help ♥ https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2WNTNCY

  9. Its from Promod which is a French store (though I've never actually seen it in France). I bought it at the store in 2009 though. But I seem to see nice chambray jumpers all over now!
