FLOWER GARLAND: c/o BeauxoxoDRESS: c/o Kee BoutiqueTOTE: Forever 21SOCKS: ASOS (similar) • BOOTS: Forever 21

Hello, it's been forever! March was one of the busiest months I've ever experienced and also one of the best - but more on that later! A not so great part of March was finding out my grandfather had a large aortic aneurysm on his heart in addition to two major blockages in his heart valves. Suffice to say, we were all very scared leading up to the operation. The surgery went well - and then my grandmother over worked herself and needed some extra medicine for her heart…! (Does anybody else's grandmothers' try to do everything herself and won't accept help from her children/grandchildren let alone listen to them?! Eek) But anyway, they are both recovering nicely and my family and I have been helping them along the way to a full recovery!

I was finally able to shoot some pictures at my grandparents' house the other day, and it's a good thing because I have been itching to share this outfit!

This smock dress by Kee Boutique is absolutely darling and I am smitten with the muted, dusky rose hue. I have long admired Keely's lovely handmade dresses, and this beautifully made frock has been a dream to prance around in! Keely was also generous enough to give me a 20% off coupon code for you! Simply enter "mermaidens" at checkout ♥

I paired it with this beautiful pastel flower garland Miss Georgie from Beauxoxo sent me as part of one of the most jaw-droppingly generous and thoughtful parcels I have ever received (which also included my new favorite lipstick, Topshop's Whimsical, which I am wearing here)! This is the first time I've worn one of Georgie's pieces after oohing and ahhing over their online store for a year or two and it's even more beautiful in person! I hope to be able to start a collection of these dainty garlands soon because I am in love

How cute is this Forever 21 tote? I really, really love the convenience of tote bags for the days I want to carry around some books with me and I cannot resist cute cats and such a good price!

Plus, my pink boots have been perfect for navigating the Spring Oregon rain showers - you might even catch me splashing in puddles like a five year old in these… *cough*

My cousin Mikayla (and me being a ham ;3) - an incredibly thoughtful, hardworking, strong, and caring person I have ever met and gorgeous to boot ;__; <3 Very lucky to have her in my life!

See you very soon! ♥

  29. I love seeing new posts from you! March has been busy for me as well and we've had some bad things happening too so I can totally relate to you on that.

  30. You're so cute and beautiful!!
    You look so natural in all these shots
    Everything pink! I love it and the cats too <33
    I love how adorable you look in the dress and the boots.
    Boots with dresses are definitively something I want to rock into!

    I'm glad that your family is doing well. Stay strong girl ^^

  31. I love this dusky rose hue, as well. And those boots!!!

    So sorry to hear about your grandparents. My grandparents are so dear to me, and have had health problems in the past, so I know how you must have felt. I'm glad they are ok now, though! <3<3

  32. ahh, you look so cute! you always do though :)

    and i'm really sorry to hear about your grandparents, but i hope they're both recovering well. i've had a lot of hard stufff happen with my grandparent's health over the last few years, including losing my grandmother and it's one of those things that's so difficult to talk about because it's so heartbreaking and there's just nothing you can do about it. but it's great that your family is all rallying together and getting through it, i'm sure both of your grandparents will be back in full spirits and good health in no time. :)
