I was so, so excited to shoot the photos for this outfit, and also to see how they turned out. I am in LOVE with them! And I know that could sound terribly vain, girly, conceited and all of that other stuff… however, I am particularly in love with the location. I look forward to the blossoming of these cascading purple flowers each year with great anticipation and hope to catch some lovely pics of them. This year, we managed to take many photos, and I even did a bit of nature photography myself, which I might include in a separate post if you are interested.
Ok, enough drooling over those amazing, lovely, beautiful, gorgeous… um, yes right, ok. This outfit is based around a chiffon, floral dress that I bought from a thrift store a while ago – $7! For a while I was rather uninspired about styling this outfit, but with the help of Lydia, we managed to yet agian use our layering technique along with my awesome navy blazer to create this stylish and rather formal outfit. We styled it long ago here… yes, I think it looks much better like this 😉
We have talked about that base black dress many times. It truly is an LBD, and we have used it often to add a bit of length to an otherwise short tunic or dress. Perfect, and I highly recommend the purchase of one of these. An LBD can be anything from a navy, black or brown colour with sleeves or no sleeves. It basically equals a dress with great versatility and value that can work as a staple piece of clothing to be used over and over again.
I was about to point you to some other outfits which used either the black dress or navy blazer, but I think it’ll make good material for a remix post, so… nevermind 😉
I like the look of the small print with the solid navy colour in this outfit. And of course the buttons on the blazer really make it 😉
Righty ho, now, GO! …to have a look at the photos of course 😀
Beautiful location, beautiful clothes…. aaah, yes, summer do come soon please!
Bless you all over the weekend, may you all enjoy revelling in God’s awesome creation!
