The Rising Tide

When I received this dress from August Wrinkle I about died out of pure happiness. The photo online did this dress no justice. It's the perfect, fit, print, material, and it has pockets! If you asked every person I know, they've probably seen me in this dress this past week. Seriously, in love with it. Probably one of my favorite pieces I've received since blogging and my headband is the belt from the dress 'cause I'm crafty like that.

The bag is also from August Wrinkle and again, I'm in love. I'm not much of a bag lady. I carry a wallet and my keys on a bracelet. I'm simple, but when I saw this bag, I was smitten and when August Wrinkle selected it to send to me, I was so happy. It's so soft, coral, durable, and high quality. I would carry a million other purses like this.







Outfit Details:
Dress: C/O August Wrinkle
Shoes: Thrifted
Headband: belt off the dress
