SLIDER

Woodland Nymph

Dress: c/o Boncy Boutique   Wedges: c/o My Hot Shoes   Bangles: c/o RMS


Okay, I will be an honest blogger, and tell you I actually didn't wear this outfit for a day or night out. This is just a "dress up" post. When Boncy Boutique contacted me asking if I'd like one of their dresses, I jumped at the chance - they have so many beautiful options! They have formal wear, and while I just adore the pretty dresses, I don't have anything to wear this number to just yet. It's actually a bridesmaid dress, so until one of my friends gets married, looks like I'll just be playing dress up in it. Oh, and when they do get married, I'll have to let them know they must choose deep green as one of their colors now. ;)


I went back on campus to get these photos taken, only because it was the weekend and no one was around. Haha, otherwise I'd be total chicken and refuse to pose with college students milling around.
This dress really is so lovely - once I put it on it was a struggle to change back into regular clothes. The chiffon material make it fun to move in, and I'm impressed by the high quality of it overall. They really made this dress well! I love the silky lining underneath too.



I have some ideas on how I could make this dress work for a school day though. The nice thing about dresses is they can work as skirts or tops depending on what you layer with it. Once it cools down, I'm already making plans on pulling oversized sweaters over it and adding some tights.


But for now, it's still warm and sunny out, making me want to twirl around in a shady, wooded area. Hence, the title of this post. Haha, real creative, right? :b



Yesterday I ran into an old alumni from my school, and we stood around catching up for an hour. Don't you just love those? Haha, it definitely helped brighten my day. I've seen familiar faces around campus here and there, but so many just give a passing "Hi," and nothing else. Ah well, I've met some new people, and am slowly learning classmates names. Ha, that's the thing about college - you're not with the same people in every class, every day! So it takes a while to get to know a person.


Anyway, hope your week is going well so far!

If you're already saying hi to random people then you're doing it right!! haha, sometimes you'll go for weeks without talking to someone... it's just weird!

This dress is so lovely, even for a dress up post kind of dress. It would be so perfect for an evening out or a nice dinner. You really do look like a fairy from the woods or something... so elegant, so magical! And you're even in a forest. How 'bout that? ;)

Anni said...

This is definitely a gorgeous piece :) This would be perfect for fall layered with a cozy knit, rich jewel tone tights and a pair of boots.

Maiken said...

such a beautiful sea green shade. and I think the dress is not too fancy, so you should definitely wear it before any weddings, hehe.
oh and how cool are those floral wedges! they actually remind me of a pair I used to have... a salad green pair of floral wedges. I loved those :)

Oh what fun and pretty pictures! Love this dress!

You will definitely meet more people and spend quality time with more people as the year progresses. The first couple of months (for me anyways) was getting to know a LOT of people, and then relationships progress from there. My friends changed so much from my first year until my last year... but, it’s SUCH an exciting time!

haha force them to choose deep green- it'd actually be pretty cute for a fall wedding :) and that dress is so pretty- you can totally wear it outside of a wedding! if you throw on a denim vest or jacket on that, it'd totally play it down. i do that all the time :)

Priya said...

What's the fun in fashion blogging if you can't do a purely dress-up post every once in a while ;) chiffon is a dream fabric, especially for dresses! I love the color of this, and the ruffly detail on top! To your fall idea- YES a sweater and tights would make this perfect. Glad to hear you are still connecting with old friends at your new school, college can be rough in that way.

That dress is sooo pretty! I love the jewel tone green and it looks so fun to twirl around in :) Haha, blogging is an excuse for older people to play dress up! Sometimes I even use it to justify purchases where I'm like "but I have no where to wear this to. Oh wait... I have a blog" lol
