Outfit Details: 
Vintage scarf: thrifted
Vintage knit cardigan: pile sale
1970s floral dress: pile sale
Belle by Sigerson Morrison nude flats: C/O Rue La La


A secret: I always have to wear a jacket or cardigan with this dress because the armpits are shredded and the top side seam is coming undone. I'll probably have to make it into a tie strap sundress one of these days which I'm not psyched about. I have a weird thing where I don't like to wear strappy tops or dresses or even sleeveless tops or dresses. Gimme that short sleeve!

Anyone else have any strange clothing rules they stick to?

  3. Yeah, I never wear anything with a really low back, or cutouts in the back or strappy tanks. I guess that's weird cause I grew up dancing and was always in leotards, but now I don't do it. For some reason it makes me feel naked, though I could wear something low cut in the front and not feel that way at all.

  7. Derr. Pants with long shirts. I have massive hips for someone my height so I like to hide them.
    ALSO I LOVE THAT CARDIGAN. You always have the best layers.

  12. Such a gorgeous color and print - just beautiful :)
    I am a bit ambiguous towards spaghetti straps and short skirts but every once in a while I'll break those self-imposed fashion rules :)

  13. I also have an issue with sleeveless things! It's not even that I'm subconscious about my arms... it really just is a weird thing. Ha!

    Anyway, I love your hair this short!

  16. I don't like dark top, when the bottom is light. I have a feeling that my legs are shorter because of that. But I accept such look in other people.

  18. i feel the same way about dressed and tops. i used to be super crazy about it, but it's gotten a little better.
    you remind me of zelda fitzgerald.

  19. That scarf is so pretty with your short hair. and YES, I definitely have a thing for sleeves.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm not crazy about spaghetti straps either, now that I think about it...

    The print of that dress is amazing, though!! It deserves to be worn despite its flaws :)

    And, more importantly, you look so gorgeous here, Ashley <3

  21. I just wish they made more dresses with mid-length/long sleeves so I wouldn't have to disappear under several sweaters every winter. And yeah, high school ruined spaghetti straps for me. But once in a while is fine... do it!

  22. Love the floral dress, the color is so flattering on you! What exactly is a pile sale?! If that is where you got these, I want to go to one!
