You've Never Seen A Woman Taken By The Wind

When I saw this dress at the Family Affair's studio, I immediately thought it looked cute, but also so comfy! Nina, the designer agreed telling me it was the sort of dress "you live in." For the past few days here in Maryland I have been doing just that. The fabric is perfection; it has a nice weight to it which means that although it's a tent-shape it hangs nicely. The ribbon trimming along the collar, hems, and pockets really highlights the sweet details of the dress.

On pictures: as you can see I'm back to seeking out rural haunts for backdrops. I just enjoy wandering around secluded spots and with the excuse of giving my Aunt's dog a walk, it makes perfect sense. Living in a city can't make you more stylish...but it can mean more stylish friends. I certainly didn't meet anyone in the corn fields!

  4. It does look very comfy and stylish (though a little on the short side?). Your rural backdrops are an inspiration to me; since I recently moved to the edge of town I'm seeking out similar backgrounds myself... You have probably been asked this before and answered, but do you take your pictures yourself or is someone taking them for you?

  17. @poet, no offense, but don't you see the "photos by me" at the end of my post? I always credit other people when they take my pictures. Most I do take by myself with a tripod and self-timer.

  33. The dress IS incredible, albeit shorter than your usual dress length. But you wear it quite nicely. I love the booties too! (:

  34. It's so great to see you back in rural settings! So useful that with the dog you have an excuse for wandering around secluded spots. I like to do that too but i don't have a dog! So last time i brought my cat a long. Thing is, when a jogger suddenly passed by, my cat got afraid and ran away! (ofcourse he didn't wear a leash, because it's a cat) i had a hard time calling him and finding him back! Fortunately, he eventually meowed back to me. Poor thing (and me). Next time i'll just go out wandering alone.

    I'm excited to see more of your rural haunts and fall outfits!
