SLIDER

OOTD // Sketching Florals

Outfit Details:   Dress: c/o Sugarlips   Hat: JcPenney   Belt: thrifted   Clutch: vintage   Wedges: thrifted

Brace yourself for a photo barrage! I got something really sweet in the mail recently and wanted to capture it in every possible angle to show it off. Haha, so, swinging from one end of the fashion pendulum to the other, I traded in my studded belt and Doc Marten look-alikes for a softer, feminine style.

Gold Bangles: Claires   Wooden Bangle: Philippines


When this dress arrived in the mail, I couldn't have been more excited! I'll admit I was surprised when I saw the sleeves, since on the website it wasn't portrayed very clearly. However, I love it! The billowy batwing style is the perfect touch to this beautiful floral dress. All I needed to add was a belt, a few bangles, and my floppy hat, and I felt like the dress was a statement enough. Sugarlips Apparel has some wonderful clothing on their site and, judging from this dress, is good quality. I pretty much just want everything they have. So if you want, check out their site!


It was practically like summer outside! Almost into the 70's, a few fluffy clouds in the sky, and a light breeze in the air. Mmmm, it was perfect. I'm so glad we're finally getting some warm weather now. Hopefully it stays this way!





And ah yes, had to test out the dress's capability and did a jumping shot. It passed with flying colors. :)

I love your dress. You look beautiful. The photos are fabulous.

WearAbouts said...

the sleeves on that are so cool ! That dress will be so perfect for spring and summer. I think it's important to display multiple sides of the "fashion spectrum" so to speak as a fashion blogger. if you stuck to ONE STYLE that would get boring after awhile. This look is great because it's different from your recent looks and yet it's still so YOU! :) Love the wedges and belt with it, too <3
and of course---the trusty JUMPING PIC ;)
I love reading your comments on every post, Linda :)

Girl, I totally want a tall man in my life, too! One where I can wear 4" heels and he is still taller than me. What we need is a bunch of tall swedes, some Viking men in our life. Awww yiss.

Haha anyway! Those heels are just too cool and I'm glad you like 'em! That skirt is supa fun, too. :D
