tangled up in blue

June 2nd, 2011

The thing I love most about this dress is how flexible its shape is!  I’m only wearing it one way in the photo, but Ally’s website shows dozens of other options to style them.  I did the simplest — just a wrap tied loosely over my shoulders and around my waist, but the other possibilities are endless.

I grew up on this lazy, suburban street in this extraordinarily academic town, and when I visit my parents’ house, I don’t always think ‘fashion.’  But at the same time, it’s kind of cool to do outfit photos on a random suburban street at sunset, no?  I liked them — and at the very least, it was nice to mix up my usual backgrounds a little bit!

I love the light fabrics and easy flow of the skirt — the style was so romantic that I had to add some ringlet curls.  Lately I’ve really been gravitating towards easy, romantic styles, both in clothes and in hair.  Is there anything better for summer?

    You look really gorgeous in that dress! I just can’t believe it has dozens of way to wear it. And also I love the color of your skirt. That purple is so “Kate Middleton”!! I mean it’s classy but not snobby. It actually goes with the nice suburban street and the beautiful early summer sunset!

    You look stunning in that dress!
    It’s a gorgeous color and the fabric is just perfect for the coming warmer weather.
    The accessories are just lovely with it as well!
