Is It Warm Yet? (Dress Refashion)

Hello!

New upcycle today!

I’ve had major spring fever lately… looking out my window puts a damper on my day when I see all the snow and ice still out there… will it ever end???

So I’ve had this dress in my ‘to work on’ pile for months now. I knew it would be a simple fix, but it was winter… not much use for dresses like this in the winter… Anyways, I finally decided that I needed something to make me forget about the cold and snow for a minute, so I grabbed this dress out of the pile…

I really enjoyed the fabric pattern, the lace back, and the cute little buttons down the front of this dress… but what I didn’t enjoy was the layered ‘frilly’ look and the length. I’ve never been much of a maxi dress girl.

To make this dress acceptable to me, I simply cut off the bottom ‘frilly layer’ and hemmed it up. I know I’m lazy. I probably could have done a lot more with this, but I found it to be satisfactory, and actually pretty cute!

Agree???

So that’s my ‘spring please get here now!’ plea to the universe. I have a new dress to wear once it’s warm!

On another note, I finally got my blog all hooked up with a Bloglovin account! So if you enjoy having all of your favorite blogs to read in one place, sign up and follow me! And if you already have Bloglovin… well you’re welcome. Life is easier this way!

April Showers

Hello everyone!

(<3 Whale Boots!)

So spring has finally sprung here in Indiana! I'm beyond stoked to be done with all the cold and the snow. Not my thing… There was a lovely calm rain going on the other day. I felt the need to snap some pictures because it just felt so tranquil. So out in the rain I went, and you know what? It didn't bother me one bit.

Here are a few of my favorite shots:

I hope you all are also having warmer weather!

A Walk Through The Woods.

Hello all!

So this week is my spring break from school (which is somewhat frustrating considering it is not even spring yet and has in fact snowed last night…) and since I did not go on vacation anywhere I have been rather bored. Yesterday I decided to take a walk through to woods behind my house and took my camera along. I practically grew up in those woods; I was in running through them pretty much every single day in my childhood. I photoshopped a few of my favorite shots from the walk:

It was a pretty nice (yet still chilly) day, but the sun was just starting to go down. I have always loved the lighting at that time of day. I am still waiting for my Holga photos to be developed, but hopefully they arrive soon.
