garden party

Since I am such a terrible blogger (/procrastinator) I still have a bunch of photos from September, just chilling, unprocessed, in a folder on my laptop. My lags in blogging usually come from a) not having time to take photos or b) not having the patience to edit photos and compose posts. This time around it was definitely letter b. And with school having just started (yes, I started school in October #quartersystemproblems) it'll probably move into a combo of a + b. The struggle is real.

I wore this dress countless times over the summer cause it's so comfortable and so versatile. I haven't worn any denim skirts or dresses since the 6th grade, but it's hard to resist the magical food-baby-concealing powers of a flouncy, denim, smock dress. New and slightly unconventional takes on denim have been constantly cropping up, while at the same time online publishers relay that denim as a whole is going out of fashion. Personally I'm embracing expanding my denim horizons (and refusing to say goodbye to my skinnies anytime soon.)

denim smock dress: asos, lace up ballet flats: urban outfitters (similar), black hat: zara (similar)


  1. I love your dress! I can't get enough of the fact that it's denim like seriously it couldn't get any better. And I highly doubt that denim will go out of fashion I'm sure who thought of that is totally clueless about fashion, haha. Also I'm kinda in the same boat as you probably more so in option a) so I feel your struggle.

  2. Cool pictures! This dress is a lovely shade of blue! Sometimes you just need to procrastinate and just be lazy! :)

  3. Totally feeling the procrastination so no judgement at all!
    I can't get over how cute that dress is! I've been on the hunt for the perfect chambray dress all summer! Definitely going to look again for something similar to yours (if you don't mind) for next summer! Too cute!

  4. Trust me, I'm a huge procrastinator too, so I get it.

    Loving your pretty dress and awesome hat though!

  6. Loving that dress, it looks so versatile!

  7. I read your post and thought - wow, sounds like me! I have (probably thousands of) photos, I have topics to write about, I actually even WANT to write and I like it but an unknown force always stops me (or is it procrastinating?). sometimes it's one, sometimes another. but overall it's a tough situation I say!
    oh and who cares what's trendy? if someone says denim skinnies are not trendy anymore I say who cares ;) because who could resist a comfy pair of skinnies? not me anyway. that's why trends sound like something annoying to me. I don't like limits.
