DRESS: c/o Unique Vintage NECKLACE: c/o Les Nereides PURSE: c/o Doll Me Up Darling HEADBAND: Forever 21 (sold out, similar) SHOES: Forever 21 (sold out, similar)

I love visiting rose gardens because I gotta be honest, I love an excuse to pretend I’m Alice in Wonderland. This 50s style dress by Unique Vintage could definitely be out of a fairytale - it is so dreamy! I love the vibrant color (plot twist: my favorite color actually isn’t pink, it’s red! :O), and the detailing on the bodice is too sweet!

I paired it with a new favorite purse by Doll Me Up Darling - IT’S A WATERMELON! And the cutest Alice in Wonderland necklace by Les Nereides - I really can’t get over the details in this piece! It has the white Rabbit (even holding a tiny pocket watch!), Alice herself, and treats all spilling out of a teapot! So clever and so precious…

Hope you are have a fun weekend <3

Presenting the Margarita Mermaid Swimwear x Mermaidens Collection!

So so excited to share this with you all! Margarita Mermaid Swimwear and I collaborated on a mini collection! Inspired by all things mermaidy, the Margarita Mermaid Swimwear x Mermaidens line consists of a one piece bathing suit, a pink shell bikini, retro seafoam green high waisted bottoms, a black dress with shell detailing, a shell crop top, and a high waisted floral skirt!

I was first introduced to Margarita earlier this year, and fell head over heels in love with her pieces - she has such a distinct, fun aesthetic that completely aligns with all my favorite things! It is so exciting to collaborate with somebody whose brand I love so much, and who is a lovely person to boot!

Please let me know what you your favorite pieces are, and, if you happen to buy something, please hashtag #MargaritaxMermaidens so I can see!

BILL SKINNER RING *

How darling is this little ring? I've been smitten with Bill Skinner since I first laid eyes on them on ASOS, and ever since I've been in love with their detailed, sweet jewelry! The little blue bird adorably perched on pink roses and leaves on this ring absolutely stole my heart and is a new favorite for sure!

I've been pretty obsessed with jewelry lately - I love how so often it's given as a gift so it represents a friendship or relationship - tell me about your prized pieces pretty please? xo

DRESS: c/o Unique Vintage SHOES: ASOS (sold out - similar 1 and 2)
PURSE: Aldo (sold out, similar at Kling)

Sorry for the photo spam - but I'm just so happy with how these photos turned out! I took these on a particularly hot and hectic day, but exploring the rose garden in this Unique Vintage fit and flare dress I felt incredibly cool and calm!

The dress is an absolutely darling blush pink fabric with polka dot pattern - and the cut!! You guys know 50s silhouettes are some of my absolute favorites, I always feel so confident in them, and this one has the fullest skirt of any dress in my wardrobe which I absolutely love! Definitely feeling a bit like retro styled Princess Bubblegum in it!

I paired it with some of my all time favorite shoes from ASOS - who always has such amazing heels from their own brand!

TOP: c/o Missguided PANTS: c/o Missguided SHOES: Gift from Kayla ♡♡♡ SCARF: ASOS

Double gingham? Don't mind if I do! This outfit has to be a new favorite - it reminds me of the 60s, the ladies in Edward Scissorhands, Grease - so many things I love! The bubblegum pink, cropped sweater is nothing less then perfect, and I'm completely smitten with the high waisted gingham pants. Missguided always blows me away with how adorable their stuff is!

DRESS: c/o Family Affairs PURSE: c/o Nila Anthony SHOES: F21

Family Affairs is one of those brands that immediately resonated with me the minute I first laid eyes on their stunning pieces. With nostalgic patterns and familiar silhouettes with a twist - something about their clothing reminds me a little of a modern Alice and Wonderland!

The Best Day dress that I'm wearing here is too lovely - it's covered in darling little fruit illustrations, and the empire waistline gives it a childlike quality I absolutely love! I can see myself going on many different summer adventures in this little dress!

I paired it with my Nila Anthony peach (!!!) purse! Nila Anthony are my absolute favorite brand for purses - they have the most adorable novelty bags and this peach one not only is so cute, but has a bunch of room!
