What I Wore :: Festival

head to toe
scarf :: thrifted
glasses :: Warby Parker
dress :: Red Velvet
purse :: thrifted
shoes :: UO

We snapped these photos on the way back to the car after Ivan & I visited Gage Park. Just so you know, if you are taking photos in an alley people will stare at you while they are walking by. And not just a little. I guess I don't really blame them though, I can be pretty nosey myself when I see people doing interesting things.

I have become kind of obsessed with these shoes and I really wish I had bought a more than one pair. I need more colours but I won't be buying any because of my self-imposed shoe buying ban. I picked these up back when Astrid and her mom were visiting and since then they have been my go-to-shoe when I'm not sure what to wear. They are super comfy and also have a sturdy bottom so I don't feel like I am going to wear through them if I wear them on long walks.

  4. Well those gorgeous blonde curls... vivacious curves.. people probably stare for good reason - maybe they thought you were the ghost of Marilyn Monroe reborn in a hipper.crafty look!! ;o)
    Ummmm totally stealing that purse - such a sucker for that colour, dress is awesome too!
    Soooooo.. is there a new hair colour goal and this blonde is the 'primer'? Or is that this kind of secret you'd have to kill me if you told me?
    CUTE!
    Mel ;o)

    1. Ha! Thank you!
      It's going to get white soon. But it will stay that way until after my friend's wedding in September.

  5. All blonde again! How is your hair holding up? In any case, it looks totally pretty!
    I think what I adore so much about your outfits might have something to do with your colour choices, like adding a small really bright something to it, like your hairband or your lipstick.

    1. It's holding up well! It was pretty dry for the first bit after I bleached it but I'ver been not washing it and conditioning like crazy and it is getting so much better!

  7. You are so beautiful m'dear. I love that dress so much and I am so jealous of that purse. Those shoes DO look comfy, I've been looking at similar styles but they never fit me comfortably!

    1. Thank you! I'm glad it seems that way. Most times when other people take my photo I just can't get over how many dumb faces I make!

  12. I love the colours in this outfit. Great accessorizing!

    Photos in an alley. Yup, did that last night and even kicked it up a notch for the unsuspecting passersby. I had a bugle. That's right, a bugle. People were super-duper confused. :)

    You can see the photos on my blog today. They're silly!

  16. That dress is so fun! I love the print. And the eggplant purple looks really cute and fresh with the yellow headband. Your hair is super cute--is this the final product?

  17. Your hair is so pretty and blonde! You expression in the second to last photo is priceless. You look all shy and like "why are people looking at me!?!?!" I have this dress and should totally take photos for a twinsies post.

  18. That dress is lovely! I adore the print.

    Why on earth would you go on a shoe buying ban? That's just torture, surely!

  21. Great pictures and you look so lovely! That dress and bag are fantastic! I like that none of these pictures include you looking directly into the camera- I'm really bad and your pictures still look great even though you're not doing that!

  22. Oh Elycia! That dress is gorgeous! I love patterns and accessories that say 'hey, I'm creative!'. And what better pattern to represent you? :)
