OOTD: Springtime in Paris

It’s been a while since I’ve posted outfit photo’s, the weather hasn’t really allowed for it, and I really didn’t want to take them indoors like I had done most of winter. We grabbed these photos the other day before we went out to eat. Clearly I’m out of practice for posing.

I bought this sweater from H&M back in February, but I absolutely adore it and can definitely see it becoming a staple in my wardrobe this summer. It’s very lightweight and soft. And I love the Paris Darling and Eiffel Tower on the front.

I absolutely adore these Floral Hi Tops from H&M. They’re so comfortable and I love the rose print on the black background.

Now that we’ve had my awkward return post I plan to be back Sunday with a normal (and less awkward) post.

Daily Look Spring LBD

Recently I was invited by Daily look to make a Style Set for my perfect spring LBD look. Since it’s festival season I decided to go with a look I’d definitely wear to a festival, but I’m pretty sure I’d also wear in my day to day life.Fashion and Happy Things!   Daily Look Spring LBD

I started out with this Broods Leaf Printed shift dress because I adored the print and I’m absolutely loving easy throw on and go dresses right now. Then since the dress is so short and the weather has been really cool where I live lately I added these thigh high socks, which I think are amazing paired with these low cut ankle booties from Kelsi Dagger. Then I finished off the outfit with this floral leatherette headband since I was going for a festival vibe (plus I think I would look amazing in my blue hair) and this House Of Harlow 1960 Kinetic Pendant Necklace because it’s gorgeous and I’m really into these sorts of necklaces right now. For practical purposes this Dailylook Zora Classic Quilted Vegan Leather Purse is perfect for all my day to day necessities.
I’m completely in love with this outfit, but I’d love to know how you’d style a dress like this in the comments below, or better yet go check out the little black dresses daily look has to offer and tell me your favorites

Indie Flick, OOTD

I’ve been outrageously impatient for spring weather, there’s been more snow at the end of this winter than there has been the rest of winter, but thankfully it’s recently been warmer.

I love this skirt, my cousin bought it for me from H&M the last time we went shopping together. It’s a high waisted jersey midi skirt and it’s really comfortable to wear.

I adore this lipstick, it’s definitely going to be my go too color for spring. It’s a lovely color and it’s long lasting without being outrageously drying.

Little Red Riding Hood

So I took an accidental hiatus. I just needed to reset myself, and get to where I was feeling good enough to get in front of the camera again. But then I found these photos from before all the snow, and decided that they needed to be posted.

I’m a huge fan of fairy tales, and found this coat in the back of my closet when getting dressed and immediately thought of little red riding hood. I’m actually pretty sure I was heading off to my parents house, so that’s even better. I can’t for the life of me remember why I stopped wearing it because it’s about 7 years old and I haven’t worn it in about 4 years.

I absolutely adore these photos. It’s one of the perks of being married to a guy who knows his way around a camera.

Also I kinda really miss the days when it was warm enough to be outside, let alone take photos like this.

Stylish Sunday’s: Basically

I never really get a great start off to the year, because I’m always really sick until midspring when it starts to warm up. So for a little while longer it’s going to be just stylish sunday’s posts until flu season is over.

I think I took these last wednesday, I wasn’t to sick, but I was still feeling really lazy.
