Down South

I am in balmy Atlanta, GA right now and enjoying the weather, but not the mosquitoes. It is very humid, but a pleasant break from the fall we were beginning to experience in Washington State (I don't like cold temperatures). I've been dressing very simply and my sister has been kind enough to snap a few outfit shots for me.


Outfit details: dress- H&M, bow belt- self made, shoes- secondhand, necklace- Talonalia

Outfit details: dress- swap with Keiko Lynn, shoes- Urban Outfitters, necklace- Yellowstone National park gift shop

  1. The dress you got in the swap is absolutely stunning. I'm not sure I would have been able to give it up.

  4. Your white and pink floral dress is really lovely, it reminds me of my favorite movie "Sense and Sensibility". It has a Victorian feel to it. I was wondering why didn't you wear a pair of white or silver ballerina shoes with it. Oh, I think it would go well with white tights.

  5. You look perfect! I love the south!

  8. I love that bare legs quote at the end haha

    have fun in Georgia - I really liked Atlanta the last time I was there. There are some really cool spots.

  10. hahahaha i loved that last bit, so true and funny. maybe its cause you do live in washington but considering how i am living in la, i barely get to experience cold weather so i LOVE IT!! but yeah wearing dresses and whatnot is better and cuter! hehe

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm sorry, where is that quote from? Please!
    Also, I love your second dress! (And great picture with the tree!)

    ReplyDelete

  13. I love the second dress so much. It has a very young and romantic feel about it. Reminds me of vintage Laura Ashley prints. So beautiful!

  18. @Anonymous 10:29; well, I don't own white ballet shoes or plain silver ones either. Also, I'm living out of suitcase for a week, so brown flats that go with everything were what I packed. And I also don't own white tights, but I don't think I would wear them with a white dress. Too Lolita for me.
    @Anonymous 11:13 AM; it's from a newspaper article from the 90s. My sister found it in a library archive and copied it for me, but I don't know what paper or the exact year.

  19. lovely dresses! I'm loving your belt!

    ReplyDelete
  20. sometimes i'm a little critical when i see girls walking around bare legged in fifty degree weather ... that quote makes me feel like a biatch! lol.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love your blog, I love all your dresses ! Your style is so perfect... never stop it !

  22. Your belt is sooo nice that when i saw it i wanted a go at making my own!its not exactly the same but similar so i wanted to ask you if i could post pics on my blog first as it might be kinda copyrighted? i dunno. Let me know hey :) and they dress loverly... i like how the lace goes.x

    ReplyDelete
  23. Lovely velvet bow belt! Such a terrific idea of yours! Very pretty shots!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love that first dress! It looks as if it was made for you!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You look lovely as always! Hah, I love the quote at the end too

    ReplyDelete
  26. love your DIY-bow. tres gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You look beautiful! Welcome to the South. I hope you enjoy your time here!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love that second dress a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like the dress with the brown flats. I think they work well. Silver or white shoes would be "too much" or maybe too pretty. I don't know. Too something!

    I have a pair of light brown flats I wear with everything. So I like to think brown flats go well with many things. (Mostly I wear them with everything because shoes never fit me--and they do).

  30. I love the last dress, it's so sweet, especially the lace around the sleeves, collar, and hem.

    ReplyDelete
  31. You little girl from the fairy tale! Both outfits are great (:

    Peace and love!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Your second dress is utterly romantic and timeless. The pastel colors, the ribbon, and the collar make it breathtaking. LOVE IT.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love the second outfit.
    Have fun girl :-*

  34. Washington to Atlanta is a big jump! :P But I'm just the opposite, I love cold weather and hate the humidity :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yay, I have an opportunity to say "Hotlanta."

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love fall and am a big fan of cool temperatures, but today I would have appreciated being transported down south! We had such a weird summer here that I didn't quite get my fill of the smothering heat. Haha, anyway, I think this green H&M dress looks adorable with your self made bow belt :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love the prints on the first dress! So beautiful and feminine =) Your sis and you have an amazing relationship!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've never been to the south, but I'd love to go. its so cool how your family is in so many different places of country

    hmm maybe I should take a day off from shaving and let my new bruises from sailing show haha

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've seen this dress on your blog before, and I loved it so much, I went to h&m 3 times searching for it! I finally got it on the last trip. :o)

    ReplyDelete
  40. i just love your white dress. it is seriously gorgeous. and how lucky you are to see your sister! i'm actually the opposite of you - i hate balmy weather, and love me some crisp autumn! enjoy your little family vacation!

    ReplyDelete

  88. That quote. It's intriguing. Where is it from?
