I'm Not Fancy


It's only fitting that I would wear one of the most amazing dresses I've ever owned while my hair is a mess. I mean I get lucky with already co-ordinated nails and find the perfect shoes to match, then sort of forget I haven't washed my hair in a couple of days and notice how obvious my roots are getting after I'm dressed...But it sort of suits my overall style. I'm drawn to more formal, elegant pieces but I feel slightly uncomfortable when I'm very polished. A messy ponytail becomes a metaphor for my unkempt room and even the random assortment of items that collects in the backseat of my car. But too fancy for me or not, I'll happily mark this down in the records as my favorite dress. There might be more basic pieces I'll always end up wearing, but to me this dress is where reality and fantasy collide and just looking at it makes me smile...
P.S. Aren't these Seychelles 30th anniversary special edition sandals the best?

  4. The pattern on the dress is gorgeous! It goes really well with the location. I think the "messy" hair look pairs well with fancy dresses. It makes the look more "human." I think is why I typically don't care for high-end fashion; it just looks too harsh and impractical.

  15. I can definitely identify with this look! I can never quite feel like myself until there is something, anything, a little off kilter with my looks!

  16. yeahhh, that dress is pretty perfect. and you look so lovely!
    I feel like I'll never really pull off that "polished" sophisticate look some women have so effortlessly, mainly because I've come to embrace my constantly messy hair. but I have some pretty sweet natural bed head, so I guess I'm ok with it!

  19. I know exactly how you feel - I always feel as though I need to add a bit of scruffiness when I'm dressed up all fancy... otherwise I just don't feel quite like myself! P.s. you remind me SO much of Emma Stone with your hair this colour.
