Forever 21 blazer, H&M dress and shoes, Michael Kors watch, Mom's bangle, Initials charm necklace, Ray-Bans
The ever so popular H&M garden collection flower mini dress. Every fashion blogger was talking about it. I wasn't sure I even wanted it, but when I saw that is came in this beautiful cream color I was sold. I feel this color is so romantic and perfect for my pastel obsession right now. When I get dressed I try to be practical. I dress for the occasion. However, sometimes you want to play a character. It doesn't have to be a literal interpretation, but something that just evokes a feeling for you and you play off that. This outfit reminded me of Stella from one of my favorite older movies "Great Expectations" from the amazing novel by Charles Dickens. I think I was inspired by this intriguing gate that is on my street that leads to this house that is being reconstructed. There are leaves and vines everywhere and the gate is ajar making it seem a little mysterious. Every time I drive by I think of this movie. Stella is intoxicating with her blond hair, girlie dresses and playful mischievous attitude. I could see her wearing this outfit with a pretty pink bow in her hair and a glass of champagne.
