What I wore on my birthday


This is my first outfit post!

I was a little nervous about posting these because I tend to be disgusted with about 90% of the pictures I take of myself, even when I'm sure I'm the only one who can see anything wrong with them.  So I decided it was high time to get over that and post them anyway.

Let me start by saying, that after two years, I have finally found a flaw in my precious beloved camera.. It only has a two second delay option for taking pictures!  I thought for sure it had a 10 second delay but I guess I was getting it confused with my old one. Oh well, I'll just have to get a remote for it I guess! But for now I just have to make due with my full length mirror. 

 In case you were wondering, two seconds is NOT enough time to press a button and then run and pose for pictures. It did make for some funny outtakes though. (Why did I delete those!)






I wanted to get a good shot of my hair because I was about to dye it a different color. BIG mistake by the way! :(



Outfit Details
Dress: Target
Cardigan: Target
Tights: Forever 21
Belt: Forever 21
Shoes: Target


This is my favorite kind of dress! I love the style and the floral pattern. I would buy 100 of these dress in different colors if I could.

The necklace I'm wearing is a Coelacanth, which is my favorite fish! Steven got it for me as a gift years ago, he found it online and I can't remember the name of the website.

Well that wasn't too bad. Next time I promise to smile more and wash my mirror first D:

  3. Cardigan + dress + stockings is a classic combination, and I love the color palette! Ocean-y colors work especially well with a fish necklace :) Happy birthday!!! What does your hair look like now?

    1. Thank you! My hair actually is almost back to normal now. I tried dying it strawberry blonde but it didn't stick that well so it turned grey! :(

  4. You look just lovely! That is a really pretty dress and I love it with the belt. You've layered everything really well too and what a nifty little necklace! Is your hair much different than is was before?

    1. Thanks! And yes, it turned grey on accident, I think due to the lightener I had in it. Luckily it washed out and it's almost back to normal!

  5. You look great! I tend to be hard on myself, too. I just try and remember that I am my own worst critic and no one is paying as much attention to me as I am, lol.
    I am so curious as to what color you dyed your hair! :O
    You're going to show us, right?
    Also, I really like that you did an outfit post finally!

    1. Thanks! I'd like to do outfit posts more often. My hair ended up turning grey on accident, I think because of the lightener I had in it. But it washed out luckily :)
