Sun-Spotted

imperfect

works cited: h&m dress; wedges c/o ruche

Having a blog has encouraged me to wear things I might have been wary of earlier. Sometimes it works and I'm delighted and sometimes it's not quite right. I loved the idea of mixing polka-dots and a floral print, and of keeping this dress loose but the silhouette long. But altogether, I think this came out looking a bit too sweet with the braids. While I think it's kind of pretty, I don't know if I completely like it. Weirdly enough, even the camera and the light seemed to feel a little romantic--the sun-spots are imperfect but also kind of pretty.

I like it! The colors of your dress and the sun spots make it all look very romantic. Although I do agree with you that the braids are a bit much.

I liked that you used the pics with sunspots. Nice way to switch up the photography.

I don't think it looks too sweet. You managed to look romantic and soft while still looking like a grown woman. Good job.

Simply Bike said...

That's funny, before I read your caption, my first thought was, if I had pininterest, I'd totally pin that first picture of you! I love this look and the dress and braids together are gorgeous. I will ignore what you wrote and continue oohing and aahing over this instead. :)

Love this look and I think the braids go well with it. Not too sweet, in my opinion, but maybe "messier" milkbraids would fix that something that you feel is not quite right.

Lauren said...

Romantic is completely the perfect description for this - you look like you belong in a John Singer Sargent painting or a modern version of a Jane Austen film - but that's not a bad thing!! I love the floatiness and sweetness vibe of the outfit - it suits you just as much as your other creations!

Ana* said...

I like to think i have a romantic personality so I would tell ya this look is phenomenal

Elle Enchanted said...

mm this is really lovely actually, the light hit you perfectly! The sunspots usually ruin photos but here they kind of work with you! I adore that color on you and the dress looks so pretty.

Anja said...

you are right! this all looks soooo girly, a bit more than your usual girly styling. But it is sooooooo cute on you! Love the lighting in the photos, very pretty. Need to try that :)

Frannie Pantz said...

I think you are right about the sweetness and "light" (ha ha), it is very romantic and girly. However, it looks great on you! I am loving your hair in the braids lately!

Maggie said...

Sweet or not, this is one of my favorite looks on you!

sartoriography said...

Holy shiz, you look gorgeous!! I adore everything about this look- the color of the dress, the braids, the heels, the sunspots. So, so pretty!

Galileo was obsessed w sunspots, you know. I think ol' GG'd have a thing for you in this post. ;)

love this dress.

jill said...

you look so pretty! the look suits you so well! the dress, the sandals, the hair, the poses and the light--it came all together :)

i hope you don't mind me asking, but is the dress from the current season of H&M? because i would like to go get myself one :) i live in germany though...dunno if H&M has the same collection across the world, but i'm crossing my fingers!

These pictures are so beautiful! Love this outfit, especially the shoes! I've been thinking about trying to incorporate more braids this spring/summer...great hairdo for those hots days! love it!

Cel said...

The sun spots actually work here hah. This is a very sweet look, but I think it looks wonderful on you! You're probably just not used to it. I know the first few times I wandered about in milk-maid braids and a more dainty dress I felt like a little girl, but that went away.
