Nature's Little Deathtrap

I've worn this dress before, but can I just say again how much I love it? This is to me an ideal summer dress because when its hot you really can't fuss around with a lot of layers, but a plain dress can be...well plain. This dress has just enough details and style to it that it stands alone without the need of additional layers for visual interest.

I'm also wearing the least advisable shoes for adventuring. These wedges are rather comfortable to walk in because of the platform, but I would not venture off of paved paths in them if I were you. I definitely had a few shaky moments on the uneven ground littered with evil pebbles and conveniently lined with thorny blackberry vines; basically nature's little deathtrap for the inadvisably dressed.

  3. My dad calls that "inappropriate shoe attire." I heard that a lot growing up, but it didn't stop me from wearing platforms!

  4. Those shoes are amazing! But I can see why they may not have been that great for adventuring.

  30. you really suit navy. it looks gorgeous with your hair (which i am most envious of). simply beautiful. x

  31. My favorite thing about this look is that the dress is so vintage-inspired (timeless, really), but the shoes are very "right now." I really think that is the key to wearing vintage or vintage-inspired pieces. Gorgeous!
