I've worn this dress before, but this time, since it's sooo insufferably hot outside, I'm wearing it sans leggings. I'm all about accessorizing these days, as I aim to also get to wear a lot of my neglected accessories. This panda necklace has been a regular on my posts, lately, but I haven't worn this headband until today, and I definitely haven't worn this flower pin that I made months ago after being inspired by the Disney cartoon Tangled. (Yes, I watched it. But only in a moment of weakness)

I don't usually subscribe to a certain type of style. I like to dabble in different kinds. But when it's sunny and warm, I always feel like I should be dressing up in pretty dresses and flowers. Simple makeup completes this casual look-- you don't want makeup melting or smudging all over the place! For the hair, I like it up and out of the way. I learned how to do this super simple hairstyle from Mandy's blog.

  1. Damn, you're some kind of hair wizard! I could never execute anything like that...I am so hopeless when it come to the hair stylin'. And I really, really love that dress - the cut and material are just perfect.

  11. Pretty! I love everything about this :)

    I really need to learn how to do more up-dos. Or, be more patient with them. Strangely, I have patience for most things, but when it comes to hair & makeup I have next to none.

  22. I have no idea how to do my hair like this. I'm just lucky that I can put it up into a ponytail. Seriously. That is how sad my finger dexterity is.
    As for your panda necklace - SOFRICKINCUTEOMG.
