August Wrinkle x Trendy Teal: Transitioning to Spring Look 3

Dress: c/o August Wrinkle   Button-Down & Cardigan: thrifted   Wedges: c/o My Hot Shoes   Earrings: Debs
This is my annoyed face for the wind that was ruining our outdoor photoshoot! 
I swear I'm not torturing Prince - he likes little scratches around his muzzle!

This is the last Transitioning to Spring post, this time featuring a pretty dress from August Wrinkle. The fact that it has some mid-section cut outs definitely influenced my selection of it. How cool is that!? I'm definitely going to start hunting down more dresses with cut outs like this. Dresses will always be the perfect item to style up and down, no matter the weather. You can layer them easily for any season!

For this spring-themed outfit, I chose grey tights and light, pastel and neutral tones to accent the dress. Also, since we're heading into warmer weather, its time to break out those open-toed shoes, ladies! These spiked wedges from My Hot Shoes are my new favorites. They're not always practical, but when you want to get dressed up and still retain an edge? Some spiky wedges will serve you well. 

So we had to move this shoot indoors, since outside was far too bright and windy for flattering pictures! Dad helped me out with some, but a few were also taken with my tripod. I'm experimenting with using it more, and I really like how handy it can be. I still prefer having someone else take photos for me, but that's not always going to happen. Do you ever wish you could just clone yourself? That way you could be both the model and photographer! You have no idea how often I've entertained this fantasy...because in my head, I know exactly what I want in a picture, and it can be frustrating trying to convey this to someone else. Haha, I'm just so thankful my photographers (you know who you are) put up with me!

Lately I'll squeeze in these moments that I can't help sharing about CG and I, and if it ever gets old, I swear, just tell me and I'll stop! I feel like I'm constantly gushing about him...but so goes crushes, right?

Anyway, today's mention is a small one. Sitting next to him in Psychology class is always full of laughs because our teacher likes to make his lectures interesting (aka: they're easy to make jokes about). So he and I will often add our own commentary from the back of the class. Anyway, CG says things under his breath a lot and I'll glance up at him to see if he'll share what he said, which he usually does.
This one time I thought he said something, and I looked over at him questioningly. He caught my glance and suddenly appeared taken aback, like I'd taken him off guard.
"Wow," he whispered.
I raised an eyebrow at him, but he didn't elaborate.
Hmmmmm....maybe he was amazed by my incredible hearing?

If you were a hero, super sonic hearing could be your super power! We'd call you "Whisper," and your cape would be covered in spikes--flashy, functional AND deadly! Hahaha!
I love how this look is right in the middle of casual and dressy. Perfect for school!

love the teal cardigan/blouse over the dress, so cute!!

Mirror of Fashion said...

Gorgeous mix. Those shoes are too die for and the dress looks super cute on you!

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

love that dress, your shoes and tights linda! YES!!! I wish I had a cloning machine. We could clone all good looking and NICE men. HAHAHA A clone would be great for taking pictures. It would be so helpful. HAHAHA Puppy is so cute!

sip-n-wear said...

Ahhh ive been missing out on ur stories! Whos cg??

Love the little cutouts on the dress!

Sarah said...

This is the kind of thing I wear all the time actually, haha :). I love the print of your dress, and the cardigan layered over the shirt :). The photos are lovely by the way! My tripod photos always end up all dark and out of focus, even if the room is perfectly bright! xx

Almost Delightful

Renae at simple sequins said...

Oh Linda, your doggie is so cute!!!

You always crack me up. You are so mature and genuine and if CG can't see that then man, he is blind!!!!

You know, I don't know where you live? How do I not know that? hmmmm. Value Village is aka Savers. Do you have a Value Village?

I love those sandals. LOVE THEM!!!

Ali Hval said...

Oh, Linda! That dress is just so precious and I love the little cut-outs. Just enough skin, wink wink. I can't wait to see what you do with this in other types of weather! It'll definitely be a good transitional season kind of dress.

And oooh gurl, you KNOW I wish I could clone myself. To be the photographer and model would be awesome. Taking pictures by one's self is such a burden! Thankfully, I've cloned myself pretty well onto my mom and molded her into quite the budding photographer, lolol.

this is a cliffhanger. damn

Haha, it's the return of the dangerous shoes!

The pattern on this dress is just too adorable and how fun are side cut-outs? I have a few dresses with them and it's nice not to expose my stomach but it's still fun with the sides gone. You winterized this dress in my favorite way over, just wearing a unbuttoned open shirt over it! (Wind though? Ugh, it's the worst.) Your little snippet with you and CG is cute, those awkward moments are always so funny later on. (Funny professor are the best as well, my anthropology professor was hysterical, I think she might have missed her calling as a stand-up. It defiantly makes classes more fun.)

I like your use for the shirt here! It's practical, useful, and innovative.

So cute! Loving the dress. Transitioning to spring is pretty difficult. The past couple of days were the first sort of warm ones of the year here. Turns out, I dont really fit into my spring wear anymore ;)
