Age of Misinformation

I haven't worn this dress since the summer & since I rediscovered it in my closet -- I've worn it non-stop. It really is a great dress! I rehabbed this from a floor length hideous number to a shorter modern wearable dress. I'm thrilled that it transitioned from summer to winter easily.

My sister made this hat! She's working on her Etsy store and I'm really excited, but she swore this hat was too big for anyone to wear. NOOO. Wrong. It's the perfect big slouchy hat. She told me I look homeless in it, but whatever because it's warm.

This location is on the side of the highway that I drive every single day. I've always caught glimpses and thought about finding it. I finally got a name of a business near it and we ventured to it. It's on a really small, busy street. Everyone was staring and beeping and making noises. But you know, that's typical when you're fashion blogging. But I think it worked out exactly how I planned.

Now I'm off to brunch in Ohio City with my best girl that just moved out there! I'm so excited to visit Ohio City again, but driving an hour for food is always the WORST.






Outfit Details:
Dress: Thrifted (rehabbed)
Shoes: PacSun
Hat: handmade by my sister
Belt: Thrifted
Jacket: BB Dakota
Tights: Gift (UO)

  1. This slouchy hat is perfect on you, definitely not too big or homeless-looking. I love taking spring pieces and transitioning them for winter though - you do it effortlessly here.

    Have fun at brunch! :)

  4. Your sister is crazy talented. I love the slouchiness of the hat. You did a great job with the dress too. I love it with the yellow tights! Good for you for finding the spot and taking pics through the distractions! I love when that happens!

  8. This dress is adorable! I love the length and how easily it can transition from a cold to hot weather look. Your peachy colored tights are wonderful with it. I'm loving your cool leather jacket too.

  9. I have a summer dress like this!! And it's great how you transitioned it to a winter dress...I like how you paired it with mustard tights. I have mustard tights that I have no idea what to wear it with so I might try that with my similar dress...thanks! :)

  12. I love this floral dress styled for winter!! It's absolutely perfect on you with the leather jacket. I need to find some florals to pair with my leather jacket now! Driving an hour for food would make me so hangry (anger because of being hungry)

  14. Wow, the hat is great! I think it's the perfect size. I love dresses that transition easily, especially with the unpredictable weather of the midwest. Plus, I love those pale tights! Great look, girl :)

  18. I have so many things to say! haha
    1) You mix hard and soft elements better than anyone.
    2) So glad your sister is starting an Etsy shop - I always love the stuff you wear that she's made (especially that slouchy hat).
    3) I cannot imagine that dress long, yuck - great job making it short!
    4) Great find for pictures - they go great with this outfit!

  19. That dress is so pretty! And obviously by "homeless" your sister meant to say "hot". She was only a few letters off, right?

  21. I am impressed with being able to keep going with people acting like that. I think if it was multiple people (not just one annoying neighbour) I would probably have run away, especially if I was on my own. I think it's really cool that you don't let it bother you.
    I really love the leather jacket with the floral dress. I think it's quite an American style and it really makes me want to get a new leather jacket for the summer. The last one I had I bought in Texas but it's all worn out. :( Oh and your extensions look gorgeous! Hope they are back the way you wanted them.

  22. Your sister made that? I'm impressed! A very cute style.

  23. I LOVE the pattern on this dress! I'm super into florals all of a sudden, and this one is one of my favorites that I've seen. And I really want to try out a slouchy beanie ever since seeing them all over NYFW. Yours is so cute!

  24. I can't believe this dress was ever hideous, haha. You've done an amazing job with it! It's so pretty and perfect for Spring! I love anything floral. This spot is pretty neat, sometimes it's worth the stares and shouts for some great photos right? And these are awesome.
    Where are you going on your trip? :)
