I put this outfit together whilst imagining myself as a Wes Anderson character, because life would be infinitely more interesting if I lived on some small island with a personal lighthouse, the world was entirely cast in the sorbet colors, and my family was more eccentric than it already is. Pretending I'm a character in a highly entertaining movie is one of the only ways I could get myself to wear this vintage coat I've had for years--it's just so bright. I like it, but I don't like the way I feel so visible in it. However, this time I decided to go all out; a pink dress and some matchy-matchy accessories like an old woman--I even matched my Polaroid inspired necklace to my actual Polaroid camera. I don't dress like a character from a movie every day, but every once in awhile it's fun to play the eccentric.

This is probably one of my favorite outfits you've showed on the blog (and I've been a reader for years!). The pictures are lovely. You are beautiful. Wonderful all around :)

I think this whole outfit is very inspiring! I find red, pink and orange colors so hard to wear, but maybe I'll give it a shot. Your hair and your smile looks great too, by the way. :)

So pretty! Orange is SUCH a hard color for me to pull off but it looks wonderful on you with your hair and skin tone! Matchy grandma is my specialty, even when I try to resist and go for more simple looks. Hope you're having a wonderful day!
