Flowers In Her Hair

Okay, so today is really only appropriate day to post this outfit (from weeks ago!) because the high is only going to be 77. Wanna guess about this weekend?! 97! Ninety-seven degrees! With like 100% humidity! Sometimes I have to ask myself if Tennessee is worth it in the summer haha I know it gets like 110* by now in places like the southwest, but the humidity is honestly what kills. I feel like I'm such a hermit in summer and winter. Anyway, this is one of those outfits where I really kind of hate it after looking at it, and I cringe that I walked around like that for several hours ya know? I mean, there's nothing fundamentally wrong with the pairing, but I just don't care for it. I don't know, maybe I'm sharing to show that sometimes I hate what I throw together haha.
My closet spans the width of my entire office, about 15', and is hidden by walls on both sides of my French doors. I sometimes take advantage of those little nooks to shove things like my printer, a bunch of craft supplies, and my Jeffrey Campbell box collection (the only shoe boxes I can't seem to get rid of... maybe I should put them in storage). These photos are a little embarrassing to share thanks to the clutter, but at least they're honest I guess haha. I promise I don't belong on an episode of Hoarders! 

Anyway, I picked up this dress many many moons ago at Ross (just like basically everything else I own), and this cardigan is about 2 years old from Target. I bought every color Target had of these cardigans and I still wear every single one. They're perfect! Not too thick, not too thin, perfect material, length and I love the ruffle detail. I wish I could find more! All of the cardigans now are too stretchy and thin. The belt was a new-but-thrifted find and the ring is Betsey Johnson. (Kintage has a replica in their store.) The ring matches Pipkin perfectly. Now I just need to get the English Bulldog one for Georgia!
Have a great Tuesday! I woke up swearing it was Wednesday. I don't know where my days are anymore haha

  6. my cardigans are from target in 2009 and i love them so much! i agree, the new ones are too thin and stretchy and are a weird length i think. my old ones are falling apart, it is terrible!

  10. Such a cute dress! Target tends to have great cardigans. For their stuff to be so affordable, it tends to hold up pretty well.

  11. I love the outfit, but I totally feel your pain. I live in Northwest Florida. From about the end of May until September, my trips out of the house are kept to minimal and mostly at night if I can help it. I've been trying to figure out just how I can garden at night!

  14. Not sure why you don't like it; I love the sweater paired with the dress and the yellow belt. You make anything look good.

  16. I love your outfit! I'm sorry to hear that you don't like it too much. The colors together are gorgeous! And I like the clutter too. It's interesting to see what you can find through the photo.

  17. This dress is great! I love the color and the pattern. I'm so jealous of the size of your closet! My clothes are STUFFED into a tiny apartment closet and yours looks so luxurious! :)

  18. WOW! I envy your closet space and whats inside it! Do you ever hold onto clothes that dont fit you? I did for awhile and was off in a dream world thinking how pretty my wardrobe looked with all the dresses then realised what was wrong...so I sold them all on ebay, haha.

  22. I totally feel you on the ridiculous heat - I live in Southwest Georgia, and we rejoice if it gets below 90 degrees! It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the humidty, but goodness girl - you are looking lovely despite the crazy heat. (: I love that outfit, and the fact that your sunflower headband ties perfectly with the yellow belt! And the blue contrasting stripes in your dress = LOVE!! I wish I could borrow your wardrobe for a day, or more! (;

  23. That Target cardi has been on my wishlist for almost a month now... SO JEALOUS. You look so cute!

  24. I hope your title at least partly references the Lumineers Song 'Flowers in your Hair' because it makes everything that much more lovely!

  25. I know what you mean about the summer heat! I grew up in eastern Tennessee, and I always hated summer weather. Now I live in San Francisco and I'm lucky if we break 70, but it's a change I'll happily accept :) I think the outfit is lovely, btw. I love the flower crown!

  26. I just found your blog and I've been reading through your posts. I love that you love wearing dresses all the time...I'd do that too if I had enough...your closet looks amazing (well, ignoring the messy part :P ) I guess I'll just have to keep working on my closet full of dresses...

  27. I was just taking a look through some of your outfit archives like a creeper, and OH MAN I keep all my Jeffrey Campbell boxes too! At least the lids. I was thinking I should find a way to display them! Maybe even go so far as to frame a couple. They're just too pretty and/or funny!
