The Summer Wind

vintage color block dress
I have a confession...I hate windy days! Stuff gets blown in your eyes, your hair is mess, and there's a good chance it's cold. Now that I've got my hands on this pretty little number I just might have to bite my words. I can't wait for the next warm, windy day when I can don this floaty, dreamy dress with no sleeves and bare legs. I also think it will be fun when the weather gets a little bit colder. With tights, boots and a cute cardigan I hope that my new find will have a new life.

so pretty, I love the dress, so light and breezy!
And I like your beautiful shots too, the swirling skirt is so fun.


Elyse (Give Me Bows) :

Me too, wind is definitely the worst of all the elements, there is nothing good about it. Sun = beach, picnics. Rain = hot chocolate, DVDs. Wind? = bad hair haha. Luckily you still manage to look exceptionally gorgeous, that dress print is just lovely! x

simply megan. :

ahhhh you got some amazing shots in that dress!! love the one of it twirling in the air!! :))

JennaStevie :

This dress is seriously stunning, I love the pattern on it and the colours!! How flowy it is, I can imagine it would be amazing on a windy day. I love these pictures!

Auburn Not Red :

Knotted hair on a windy day isn't fun but without the wind that beautiful dress wouldn't be able to float around as it should. *twirl*

Ashlee :

i think i have fallen in love with your shoes!

and the shade of that dress and your hair are the perfect combination.

Emily :

I love this dress! Is your hair naturally red? I LOVE the color!
