DRESS: c/o Mod Dolly BARRETTE: A present from Marlena ♡♡♡ PURSE: A present from Marlena ♡♡♡ TIGHTS: c/o Wholesale Dress SHOES: Kohls ages ago

Hello - Happy ♡ February ♡ (∗ ❛ั ᵕ ❛ั )! Yesterday I visited the local rose garden! It's technically winter (though the weather was surprisely warm that day!) so there wasn't very many roses, but the few I did see were lovely and I can tell it's going to look gorgeous when everything is in bloom - definitely will have to visit again!

For this little adventure, I donned this dress Amy from Mod Dolly sent me - I was absolutely stunned by how beautifully made this dress is! I loveee the v-neck back and beautiful skirt overlay, but the beaded Peter Pan collar is positively splendiferous and my favorite feature! *_*

I actually helped Amy design a brand new lifestyle blog recently - stop by City Girl Slim to see the header I illustrated and let me know what you think! I'm rather proud of it :3

I also recently received this candy heart barrette and shell purse as part of a belated birthday present from Miss Marlena (aka my favorite person ever??) - you will be seeing the rest of what was in the box very very soon >;3 I'm o b s e s s e d with this purse and I absolutely ADORE the barrette - which you can actually purchase from Marlena's brand new shop Poptones! I WILL BE WEARING MINE ALL FEBRUARY IN HONOR OF VALENTINE'S DAY ♡^▽^♡

Kiss kiss! Currently I'm plotting some Valentine's Day DIY posts - so look out for that soon! ^^

♡,
Kailey

  50. You did a great job on Amy's page... had I known about you before I did my recent blog remodelling, I would have hired you instead! Anyway I'll keep you in mind for the next time I feel like redoing my webpage, how does that sound?
    The Mod Dolly dress is amazing. I didn't realize the back was open like that, it just makes it extra special! I ordered something else from the sale on Mod dolly but now I am wishing I would have got that one too!
