It's Cold in the Shade. Let's Move to the Sun...

Firstly, a quick apology. Photobucket obviously can not handle the size of my blog (which isn't even that big!) But yet until August some of my images may be crappy blue boxes. Re-uploading them elsewhere and having to repost them all would be tedious and not worth it, so please bare with me as my blog goes through it's awkward phase heehee.


I am sooo excited to share these images (and outfit!) with you today since my dad found my Paint Shop Pro disc! My parents have been redoing my office downstairs and my dad finally found my disc he lost a while ago, so I could upload it onto my new computer (Yayy!!) That and the fact that we got to take these pictures in a beautiful field of sunflowers. Though it looks like we were so secluded, it's been quite the hotspot for pictures lately (and you'll see why!)






Dress- H&M ; Belt & Necklace- Mom's ; Clogs- DSW











After taking these pictures today, Brian and I went to this really adorable little candy store called "Nutty about Sweets" Heehee. It was awesome. There were those containers all along the walls that pour out all different sorts of neat candies! (Wish I brought my camera in!) We got yogurt and chocolate covered raisins, chocolate covered banana chips, and assortment of yummy gummy sharks and fruits!




I was so excited when I found this dress, since my mom had given me a dress of hers to return and let me keep the money to get a dress for myself. I found this at H&M and there was only one left, and I was immediately drawn to how simple yet pretty it was. I can only dream of how I can wear this in every season! (and it has sleeveeesss!)








These are my new clogs! Yay I'm finally buying more and more new shoes. I am so excited about these since they are stylish but not way too high of a heel. For some reason I just feel weird wearing heels everyday.




Brian told me I should put the caption "If only they had feathers.." under here and I said "No way, that's super corny!" But alas I've posted it anyway since he is toooo cute (:





Also according to Random.org, the winner of my giveaway is...

#9 Bee!!

Congratulations! I'll be emailing you asap!

  1. I just had to scroll up to look at all these photos again, they are so beautiful! This dress is adorable, yay for generous Mums :) And you are so insanely pretty.

    Ahh your clogs! I've finally found my perfect pair of clogs, with a heel about this height, because I want ones I can wear to uni and I'm not one to totter around between classes in really high clompy heels! Haha.

    PS. One day I WILL come to NJ and bake with you :)

  15. So envious of that giveaway you did. I love Essie and they don't have it here :(

    Anyway I really love that shade of lipstick you're wearing and the chic dress. I think I always call an outfit chic if it is sort of parisian looking :P You look quite grown-up! Also the sunflower field is stunning

    love,

  16. I love the dress! And the clogs, I've actually been having issues finding clogs because of the heel issue, I just can't wear heels all day. The sunflowers make an awesome background.

  18. What a beautiful location for photos. Lovely dress, you're right it'd be great for autumn as well as summer.

  19. haha, in my last post im wear the exact same dress. i totally know what you mean about it being simple but pretty. I feel like it's so easy to wear. It does look better with a belt though, I don't have a black one the right size, only very thin or very fat, neither looked as good as urs x

  38. I just love the combination of the stripes against the big pop-art nature of the sunflowers! And I know what you mean about heels; I would feel like an idiot traipsing everywhere in them (plus I'd get lame pretty quickly I think)! I like your clogs!
