Hello everyone!

A few weeks back I actually thrifted this lovely floral dress for just a few dollars, and have now just gotten around to wearing it. I was perplexed at first on how to style it because I wanted it to have a very vintage feel to it, but I was cautious because this dress can easily make me look much, much older (in a bad way) if it isn't styled correctly. I figured the best way to go was in all out vintage with the accessories and hair.

I was quite proud of the hairstyle I did. I watched a wonderful tutorial from Casey's Elegant Musings on how to do a romantic, braided updo. I was skeptical because it looked complicated and not to mention I am absolutely horrid at doing my own hair, but it was a surprisingly easy style to do!

Hope you all are doing lovely...
With much love, Lauren.

I had to creep back over to your blog to comment on your comment.

"It's almost like you're reading a person's soul when you read something they have written that is so personal."

THAT is exactly what I feel about letters. Just perfection.

That is such a romantic dress. And the way you styled your hair is amazing! I'm a hotmess when it comes to styling my own hair so I'll have to look up some of the tutorials and just try them.

The dress looks amazing! You look very different with that hairstyle though! Its weird how you can look like a different person with a change of hairstyle.
Very sophisticated and awesome background.
