Under the Texas Sun

25 May 2011











Well, this is probably going to be the last of nature-y photos you will be seeing
on this blog for a while! I may throw in a few photos from home that I have yet
to put up yet, but get ready for a city scene back drop from now on! Before I left
Texas, I wanted to get in a few photos with the beautiful wild flowers. They are
seriously everywhere this year. I love that the city lets them grow as they please.
As for this Chicwish dress, let me just tell you, I feel like a little fairy princess in it!
And who wouldn't want that? I paired it with some ankle boots to toughen it up just
a tad since it is so over-the-top girly, and I think I liked the turn out. The tiers
and tiny pleats pleats seriously won my heart.

Gotta keep this post short and sweet because it is my last day in Texas!! I arrive
in Philly bright and early tomorrow so expect a blog update in a few days
from the city.

Have a wonderful day!

The pleats in that dress are completely divine - and white looks amazing against your skin! Gorgeous outfit, I love those shoes, too.

mm those tiers are so lovely! You look great, I love the styling.

Both your bag and boots balance out the delicateness of the dress really well. I hope you'll enjoy it in Philadelphia, you'll probably have better luck finding flowery background in one of the parks.

Hey, I've been absent for a while so I didn't know about your trip in Philly! Is it going to be long or just temporary? I guess I'll miss the nature-y background of your photos anyway!
Ps: of course I love that dress.
I'll wait for your updates :D
