4th of July Outfit!

Yeah yeah I'm not even American, but lots of my readers are so I thought I might as well dedicate this sweet little dress to your national holiday! It's orange, white and blue rather than red, white and blue but it still brings the point across, nein? I bought it in the ASOS sales for 24 euro. More expensive than most of my vintage buys, but pretty affordable, and I have a big weakness for bold striped dresses so I knew this one had to be mine. Get yours here! It does fit a bit snug so go a size up if you order yours. I'm usually a size 8 but I ordered a 10 because I didn't want to risk it not fitting, and it's still on the snug side so take my word on it!


It's a real cutie and I love it. The espadrilles are a recent buy too, snapped them up for 10 euro at New Look because they are really supercomfy, in my fave colors navy and white and they look like something either Alexa or a 10 year old girl would wear so it was just right up my alley. Absolutely loving this outfit!


Okey, I have to tell you about a crush of mine: I've been drooling over small, retro box purses. I know, very random, but they are so CUTE and DAINTY and would look so good with my outfits! I've always been a big bag type of girl, but I want to sacrifice my need to drag along everything I own on a daily basis for chicness, yes. I'm a sell out for cute purses.

Some of my etsy finds (please don't buy them I'm contemplating which one to get! :-D)


floral (especially in love with this one)







Not convinced of their irresistible cuteness? GET THIS:


Yep, I'm 100% in love with Yours Truly.
dress: ASOS
espadrilles: New Look

  3. You nailed it Annebeth! I love this outfit. The dress is lovely, I've seen it on Asos and loved it there, but with your styling love it even more! ;)

  5. AHHHH I've been stalking that dress for a bit... even before the sale started! It looks so good on you, I might have to just get it. As for the box purses, I definitely like the white trim one best. So adorable, all of them!

  7. I'm 100% in love with Yours Truly too; she has a special place in my heart and a special folder on my desktop! You should definitely buy a box purse. I would certainly stock up on more awesome accessories like that if it weren't for, you know, the suitcase. : )

    I LOVE that dress. This is the first year I've been into stripes, and now I love them. Is it nice quality fabric?

  14. I love that even though I actually am American, my Fourth of July outfit probably won't be nearly as patriotic as yours. ;)

    That dress is amazing! I love the way the stripes are pieced together in all different directions. And I'm digging all the purses you posted! I love little wicker basket sorts of purses for summer. There's something so dainty and girly about them!

  15. Eeks! I think you'll have some competition for those tapestry purses...Just kidding. They're all yours. :)
    That dress is soo adorable and does look pretty snug. I'll have to be careful about ASOS's sizing.
    By the way...I just had to mention you in one of my blog posts. Hope you don't mind! :)
