What I Wore: Cardigan (Old), Dress (Hell's Bunny Brand via Ebay), Shoes (Old Navy)

This outfit kept reminding me of my father's favorite outfit for me. My father was the one with a sense of fashion (My mother told me she stopped trying to dress me after I was one; even then I insisted on picking out my own clothes. These things start young?). He's a photographer by profession, which is part of the reason he's so good at picking out clothes (not that we always wanted to listen. His is a very classic taste; middle school girls gravitate towards the trendy). When school picture time came around, my dad always wanted me to wear this red plaid school-girl dress. Looking back on it, it was cute as a button, though I would have much rather worn a sparkly black number at the time! 

Maybe its the red or the gingham (which isn't too far from plaid) that makes this outfit here reminiscent of that one. 

Speaking of school, the subbing has unexpectedly picked up! Between travelling to see their kids play in sports tournaments (one of the few advantages of living in Wyoming is nearly all tournaments are overnight trips; we loved it as high schoolers). and flu, I'm getting work. This does mean less time for the blog, but still very exciting! So, bear with me if it takes a bit longer for me to get back to anybody's email etc. Thanks! 


  1. that's awesome that your dad was the one picking out your clothes - i can totally see my husband doing that too (but we'll have to fight for that role. or team up. either way) anyhow i LOVE this dress on you - that first picture with it is just perfection. and sounds like you're gunna be busy!

  9. That's so cool that your father is a photographer and has an eye for picking out clothing! Your photos & outfits are always so beautiful so it looks like the apple doesn't fall from the tree :) That dress is pretty spectacular, I agree! I really love how full it is at the bottom. Beautiful Kristian!

  16. I love that your dad has an eye for fashion, my dad teaches art history and is always showing me paintings and pieces that remind him of the modern day fashions. Your dress has so many sweet touches but I love the pockets the most. Classic and cute without being "young".
