i am never sure if i should be pleasantly surprised or seriously embarrassed when i find items in my closet that i forgot i ever had.  i bought this dress late last fall right before winter hit so i only got to wear it once.  i had been awaiting the day it would be warm enough to bring it back, but in the meantime it got hidden under a bunch of stuff (whoops).  i found it over the weekend and loved being able to bring it out for easter mass.
ps: it was super windy while taking these pictures so please excuse the major flyaways and me constantly touching my hair!

and a blooper…
  • I am also guilty of losing items in my closet. But it's so much fun to be surprised later 🙂 I love this large floral print! You look adorable!

  • That dress is so pretty! And you definitely aren't alone, I also lose things in my closet all the time!

    xo Kylie

    • thank you! it is so fun when you find something and it's like it is brand new again!

  • Teach me how to use my camera so I can have photos like yours pretty!!! Love this dress!

  • Too cute. I love the throwback A&F jean jacket- I need to get the elbows of mine patched so I can rock it again. 🙂

    I do this all the time, too- find stuff I bought months back and never got around to wearing. Tags still on, most of the time! Ha!


  • Hahah I love the blooper at the end. I feel like most of pictures end up being bloopers (mainly because Tyler tries to get through the photo shoot as fast as possible haha) and I end up with maybe 5-6 good ones to pick from! Hope you guys had a good Easter!!

  • love this floral so much! you look so pretty! love finding buried treasure like that!

    xo, kate

    xo Kendall

    • thank you so much darling! i really do love it and will definitely be wearing it more now that i remembered it!

  • Love that dress!! And love finding clothes you forget you have! Unfortunately for me, it's usually the opposite – I give something away and then months later wish I still had it! 🙂


  • I love how you dressed it down with the little denim jacket – you look so cute! The dress will be perfect for so many different occasions this Spring and Summer 🙂

  • Ok, I'm loving how you've been adding the blooper picture….too funny! And I don't think I'll ever get sick of stripes & florals, even if it is older pieces 😉

  • That dress is gorgeous! Love how you styled it!
