WhatIWore: The other day I was out running errands and my son fell asleep in his carseat and one turn becomes another and all of a sudden I’m in the parking lot by the craft store. How often does this happen? Too often (replace craft store with Target and the answer is every week). Anyway, I’ve been wanting to make a flower crown forever and I finally got around to it!
When: June 13, 2015
I actually made two crowns and this was my third attempt at this color story. I’ll be honest - I love how beautifully it turned out, but I was a little nervous about wearing it out! Then I remembered I live in a town that’s really accepting and celebrates being yourself so I just went for it. I’m happy I did because I felt so pretty - which is how you should always feel (if you’re going for pretty!) The point - wear clothes (or flower crowns!) that make you feel like the best version of yourself on any given day. You don’t always have to dress preppy or bohemian or norm core. Life is too short to worry about what strangers think of you!
As far as what to wear with the crown (my starting point for this outfit!) I knew I wanted something on the soft side and I remembered a dress that I first wore last fall. This time, I turned it around to make it nursing friendly and gave it a belt because it’s gotten a little big. It looks like something you could find in a vintage store (if you’re really really lucky!) I just LOVED wearing this and how the photos all came out - especially the shots with Felix. I was hoping to do a maternity shoot with flowers in my hair, but these are even sweeter!
