Outfit: Woodland

This dress was more midi-length when it arrived and I lopped a few inches off the hem to make it a mini. As attracted as I occasionally am to midi skirts and dresses I inevitably feel more comfortable in mini skirts, partly because I feel they give me the illusion of being taller than I am. The hem ended up coming in handy since I used it to make a couple of quick headbands which took me back to my college days--nights up late watching Brigitte Bardot movies then tearing up old dresses to make headbands and imitate her look. I need to find more movies that inspire me to take immediate style action. In college I spent a lot of time seeking out stylish films to help inform my style but lately I'm far less intentional about what I watch and mostly get sucked into Netflix binges...
P.S. I did not build the little fort in the woods.

How did you do your hair? It reminds me of a tutorial I saw a while ago!

@jamie, I tied it in knots! I'm going to photograph the process for a beauty post sometime.

I like how the straps on your boots, with the black peeking through, echoes the interplay between your hair and the headband. I don't know if I described that in quite the right way, but it's a visual delight! Look forward to that hair tutorial. Now back to my Netflix binge >.< (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)

You've most likely seen both of these movie, but both Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and What A Way To Go, always inspire me stylishly to no end when I watch them! They're just so amazing!
Loving this outfit, as always!
