first day of school

dress: Old Navy // shoes: Steve Madden // scarf: vintage from Prototype // necklace: gift Forever 21
No, I'm not in school again. I did realize, however, upon taking these photos, that I looked like I was headed to my first day of kindergarten. Why didn't anyone tell me I looked 4?? I guess people are really just used to me dressing like a child. Whoops.

Well, I bought this dress this weekend as an item for my big girl life. Luckily, I have some styling ideas in mind to adult it up a bit. Note to self: pink headscarves do not an adult make. 

Speaking of the headscarf, I ventured to my favorite vintage shops on South Congress the other day for a little browsing of pretty things. Prototype Vintage Design has the best collection of scarves in town. I had such a hard time choosing just one! It's hard to tell in these photos, but the scarf is actually blue and pink, so it'll go with tons of stuff. Love that I finally figured out this easy hair style!

  5. This looks like a great "grown up" dress. Neutral, good length, can pair with variety of shoes and cardigans/jackets/jewelry/accessories. Plus, any work piece than you can dress down is a win-win. Good call!

  6. girl. thank you SO much for the sweetest comment ever. it means so much to me! you're the best. xo

  7. Love head scarves! You look so cute! :)
