Red & White & Cute All Over

Hat: Urban Outfitters
Vest: Thrifted
Dress: Tulle
Leather gloves: Gap
Locket/watch: won from Modcloth
Oxfords: Steven 'Melin'
Dressember, Day 7! I have to be honest-- wearing a dress every day is harder (and less pleasurable) than I thought. I keep wanting to reach for my holey jeans, only because I can't. I am the worst 'grass is greener' girl ever. This challenge will be very good for me. I need to find more ways to wear my dresses instead of the cardigan + tights route. Fireworks, maybe?

I want to say a big 'thank you' to those of you who read and appreciated my last post. Your loving support and kindness mean the world to me. I am so thankful for each of you, I really am. Thank you for reading this blog and making my days a little more joyful, a little more interesting, a little more stylish.

Now I'm gonna do a dance.


  1. Hehe, I love your outfit and the pictures are gorgeous!!

  2. Oh my goodness, you are seriously the cutest ever. I love this outfit! You look wonderful! And that last photo made me giggle :)

  3. You are truly a doll. This outfit is darling as ever. I love, love, love the hat!!!

  4. oh this is so adorable!! i love the red and white! and your oxfords are amazing. i totally want to steal them off your feet. what size do you wear? (just kidding:)

  5. LOVE that hat. you are such a doll!

  6. I love this look. Red is such a pretty color on you.


  7. This dress project is going to be so great. I can't imagine doing it, but you are going to have a great appreciation of how versatile your dresses really are. Of course, it will be crazy hard...but they don't call it a challenge for nothing, my dear.
    That said. I LOVE a well styled sweater vest. And this is it! It totally changes the look of the dress in a wonderful way!

  8. i honestly LOVE the red on you.
    it makes me want to go find a red dress and put it on.
    now i am thinking about it..i dont think i own a red dress. how sad.
    you look beautiful Louise.

  9. I go back and forth on my feelings about wearing a dress over jeans. But if it would make you feel better, I think you should try it.

  10. Hooray! It's that time of the year. You're so cute.

  11. You look superlovely! I can't wait to see how else you're going to wear your dresses because I only combine dresses with tights and a cardi too. I'm sure you'll keep on inspiring me with your looks :)

  12. hello there, just came across your blog and its seriously adorable. Such a cute outfit.

  13. LOVE this look. Vests over dresses are just as fun as cardigans!

    That dance pic is cuuute! You have a great grin :)

  14. i just have to say, i've been enjoying your outfits on the dressember flickr page, and decided to check out your blog, and have become completely absorbed for the past hour! (i think my toddler may be tearing apart the christmas tree in the next room while i'm not looking, haha.)

    you are so adorable, and i think it's awesome that you're a mom, a wife, and are still passionate and creative about your style. very encouraging to me, a fellow mother, trying to balance the real life messiness of motherhood and my desire to look cute, and stylish. not an easy feat!

    oh, and i LOVEd your post about the ta-tas. :) so true, and something i don't think about as much as should. i'll definitely be thinking more about my posture from now on.. <3

  15. hehe You are so adorable. I love that last picture to pieces. I love the vest over the dress, and those shoes are great! I can see Dressember being tough. You're doing great so far though!
