What I wore: Cloud Nine


Denim jacket: Forever21

Lace dress: Forever21
Cloud tights: c/o Foot Traffic
Oxfords: Nordstrom



Finally, some warm weather! I went home to the marsh this weekend to visit my parents and had a lovely time.  The warm sun and soft breeze felt like heaven - I'm rejuvenated! My Dad took these for me when we went to one of the (packed!) local parks nearby.  I count him and my Mom as some of my best friends, so I just feel extremely lucky to have such good parents and really love hangin' out with them.

As for the outfit, I feel like I got a lot of strange looks! Though I try to smile at strangers as best I can, the expressions on some passerby folks seemed sort of...offended or disapproving? Maybe I imagined it haha.  I've actually just recently realized that I dress a tiny bit out of the ordinary, and it does make me a little self-conscious sometimes. Oh well, I say dress to make yourself happy and take your feedback (or disapproving looks!) lightly, right? :)

  2. First of all, I LOVE that your dad helps take your blog photos. That's just so precious! Secondly, that dress is divine! Third I JUST had this conversation with a friend at brunch today. We were saying it can be so tough sometimes to just always be yourself, but we know a few people who just go on living their lives wearing whatever they want to wear and liking whatever they want to like and never thinking twice about it. I think it's natural to feel self-concious at times, but I think open minded people appreciate you more once they sense that you just don't care! With that being said, you rocked those cloud tights! See you Friday :)

  4. Your cloud tights are SO cute! And I love that lace dress. And it's so sweet that your mom and dad are some of your best friends; I love hearing stuff like that. I've always been really close to my parents as well.

  8. those tights are super cute, and let the people look ;) Often people are simply interested because they see something that is actually worth looking at in stead of a boring outfit they see every day ;)

  9. I think anyone who doesn't dress like everyone else gets stared at. Where I live, no one dresses up or wears heels all the time unless they are going to work. So when I "dress up" and wear heels, I get looked at all the time. I think you should wear what you love! Those tights are cute and I always love a floaty lace dress! <3
