Little House On the Prairie


I knew I wanted to try mixing up my favorite chambray dress by adding a full white skirt underneath it so I was very pleased with how this outfit worked out – with brown and tan accessories adding the perfect finishing touches.
I wore this outfit to church and within a few minutes of walking in, another girl ran up to me and exclaimed that this was the cutest dress she had ever seen in her life! Not bad for a confidence boost! Although I did feel a touch awkward as I was well over 6 feet tall in my heels and definitely one of the tallest people there!

Floral Addiction

I’ve started my back-to-school shopping and have noticed that, in addition to my intense love of cardigans, I am also addicted to florals! My eye is immediately drawn to anything floral, whether an itsy-bitsy flower print, a bold pattern, or even ruffles shaped into petals. Although I managed to reign myself in and stick with more sensible fall choices, I can’t help but indulge in floral dressing right now!

This is pretty much a go-to outfit for warm weather. It’s simple, but the bold pattern of my skirt and the crochet detail on my shirt keep it from being too plain.
