Redesign

Dress (worn as a shirt) - Forever21 // Shirt, Skirt, Shoes, and Socks - Thrifted // Sunglasses - Marc's

Like most of the pictures I've posted recently, these ones are from quite a while ago. May actually, I think. We were at the zoo for an adoption picnic. All I remember about this outfit was how stinkin' many layers went into it. And it was HOT that day. Everyone in my family, and most of the people at the picnic, had matching maroon shirts on. And for some reason mine was in Akron and I wasn't about to drive over an hour just to get a stupid maroon T-shirt. So I just wore a maroon dress instead, so it sort-of matched. Anyways, I wore the dress tucked into a skirt, and put a skirt underneath it so it didn't cling, and then put a collared shirt underneath because. . . well, just because. Maaaan, never wearing that again.

Anyways, if you've ever visited my blog before you'll notice that it looks . . . totally different. Completely different, in fact. I've been meaning to redesign the blog for awhile, but just never had the time. I actually had a completely different design in mind, but this is just what I ended up with, haha. Oh well, I kind of like it for now. It's better than what I had. I mean, it worked last year, but my tastes are different now. Anyways, let me know what you think of the new design. And yeah, I'm aware that I somehow need to figure out how to do the navigation better. But it works for now!

  1. Love the new design - very simple and clean. Which seems to be the way a lot of blogs look these days, but that's because it works. I always think photos work better on white backgrounds - and yours are certainly popping here with the great colours in these photos :) Although those layers sound like a nightmare...

  2. That second picture is gorgeous. I love this outfit, especially the shirt layered under the dress - perfect finishing touch.

  4. I love the new design! If I could be honest I think I like it even more then the old one! That heading is beautiful! Also I love the collared shirt popping out from under the dress but I can imagine layers wouldn't be so fun in summer heat!

  10. Cute outfit, but layers can definitely get hot! I love layers so much, and I'm embarrassed to admit how much time I spend playing around with layers to try and find the best combination for summer so it won't feel like I've placed myself inside a rotisserie!

    Also, I've been looking back through your blog because, rainy morning and I don't wanna get going, and I love your style!

  14. I really love this outfit, it's got a very "school girl chic" look going on and it's adorablely sweet. How do you pull off ankle socks so well? They totally work for you and they just amp up the look with the oxfords and the shirt. (Although sorry about it being so toasty, at least you don't look like you're dying of a heat stroke in the pictures but totally chill.) And I wanted to say how much I like your new design, like everyone is saying, it's very clean and as a bonus, it loads fast!
