Outfit: Illumination

I've featured this dress in loads of Instagram pics cause I've worn it a number of times, but I think this is the first time it's been in a full blown outfit post. It's from Samantha Pleet's "Visions" collection inspired by Joan of Arc. This particular dress features a beautiful print that seems ripped from the pages of an ancient manuscript. It's so beautiful and detailed and makes me feel like I'm wearing a fairytale on my back. While sometimes I feel like I'm living a fairytale myself, other days it's painfully obvious I'm not--like when a frisbee nearly smacks me in the head! This pretty wooded area apparently doubles as a frisbee golf course; casual walkers beware.

P.S. Sad story: I couldn't resist this little cat wallet because the grumpy face reminded me of Timmy, Thomas's family's cat. But sadly Timmy passed away around Christmas time and I'll never get to pet his weird furry head again...

Outfit details:
old scarf
old coat
vintage boots
old mittens
Choies cat wallet
Rebecca Minkoff backpack (similar)



  1. You are beautiful and I love your blog! I just found you recently, and I'm enjoying your eye for color and cuteness. I have a blog, too, and I'd be honored if you took a peek! It's www.ohsopoppy.com. Thanks!

  2. I'm so glad that this dress finally got a full outfit post. I've been looking for one similar to it ever since I saw it on Instagram;the detail in the print is just so gorgeous.

  8. The print on the dress is really so unique but beautiful! It's really a showstopper, and as always, you wear it wonderfully.

    That is the cutest little coin purse, but my condolences for the loss of Timmy. I'm such a cat lady and they really take up a big space in our hearts and lives, don't they?
