La Vie en rose

Saturday, January 20, 2018

DRESS: c/o Valfre (get 20% off your first Valfre order with the code "Kailey" 🌹)
BERET: c/o Betty and Veronica COAT: Forever 21
TIGHTS: c/o ModCloth (sold out, similar) SHOES: ASOS (sold out, similar one, two)

Hold me close and hold me fast...

Maybe it's because I'm looking so forward to spring, or maybe it's the rose themed makeup products I'm currently testing (look out for a blog post on that soon!) - but either way, I can't stop humming La Vie en rose! I also thought the term la vie en rose was an apropos way to describe this outfit - with romantic, dusty rose pinks and heart patterned tights, this look is also perfect for Valentine's Day! Then again, I rarely need an excuse for incorporating pink hues, ribbons, hearts, and pom-poms in my wardrobe...

I took these on a rather freezing afternoon * outside an adorable pâtisserie ** and an older gentlemen remarked "I'm cold just looking at you!" 😂 In general I gravitate towards solid colored walls for ootd backgrounds, and while I still like them, I feel like my photos tend to come off a bit sterile and impersonal for this reason - and that is the opposite of what I want! I guess I was trying to make everything look "perfect" - and when you are surrounded by power lines, cars, and trash it makes it difficult - but I'm going to make an effort to challenge myself with new, more interesting locations. Please let me know your thoughts on this, I'd love to get your feedback!

Hope you are having a lovely 2018 so far and I'll see you again soon ♡

  1. These photos are so pretty! What a cute little bakery. I'd love to take more outfit photos out in public, but I don't want people staring at me while it happens. Haha.

  2. The photos came out lovely! You look beautiful! ♥

  3. Your dress is so cool ! I love your shoes and coat <3
