Miss Ohio's Nameless

Ever since Ashley gave me this dress I've been envisioning these photos. This dress demands the water and a "princess of the sea" kind of vibe. While I don't have an ocean near me, I do have Lake Erie. This little gem of a spot is part of Edgewater Park in Ohio City. It's a truly beautiful place. These rocks are a little secluded spot away from the "beach" area. Which means it's quiet and a nice distance from all the screaming kids. I especially love this place because it has a great view of Cleveland and if there's one thing I love without question is buildings in the skyline. Also if you can't tell it was very windy...

After these photos, my sister, boyfriend and I went to Happy Dog. Which if you don't know (I'm assuming you don't) is a build your own hot dog bar in Gordon Square. I got a vegetarian sausage with vegetarian chilli, cheddar cheese, Sriracha, and a fried egg. Yes, a fried egg on top of my hot dog. It was AMAZING and only $2.50. Plus it was polka night so the music was good. After that we decided we needed a break from the heat and went to my new favorite ice cream place, Sweet Moses. My sister and I shared a sundae that had coffee ice cream, chocolate & caramel sauce, toffee & peanut butter chunks, and almonds. Yes, it was all as delicious and fattening as it sounds. But it's all local and homemade. This is my idea of a perfect summer evening.

My sister lives in the absolute best part of Cleveland and every time I visit her I have so much fun and it's wonderful to discover all these new places. I am starting to fall for Cleveland. It's got more charm and delicious food than Akron and what could be better?







Outfit Details:

  2. You look so beautiful in these pictures! I love the location and you look totally mermaid-esque. And that hot dog and sundae sound delicious - I'll have to check out those places if I am ever in Cleveland.

  3. Isn't it awesome when you fit into kid's stuff because it's usually cheaper? Or atleast that's what I encounter often in thrift shops, not sure about Target xD I wish we had a build-your-own-hotdog place in the Netherlands...Now I'm really curious about how the fried egg on hotdog could taste like...

    1. I am lucky to have tiny feet which allow kid shoes! It's quite a blessing because I like dressing childish with glittery shoes.

  9. that sounds like the perfect summer day, i can't believe you got to build your own hot dog and it was only $2.50! you couldn't even get a standard gross old hot dog in sydney for $2.50, let alone a nice veggie one with toppings. and the ice cream sundae sounds amazing as well.

  10. What a gorgeous dress and photo location Jessica! The color looks amazing with your blonde hair! Even after becoming a born again vegetarian, I have long loved hot dogs and I love finding the new ways to eat them! Yours sounds delish and I would definitely try the fried egg. And it sounds amazingly priced! Mmmm now I want one!

  12. These pictures are simply gorgeous. The way you styled this dress and where you took these pictures is just everything I would have imagined for it. You are definitely giving off a mermaid vibe! I've never been to Cleveland but I would have never imagined that there would be a beach-like location. You always find the best spots!

  16. Uh, talk about perfection here. This dress, the location, the photos, YOU. It's all so dreamy! I'm honestly in love with all of this!

    And answering your email is on my list of things to do today. I'm glad we're both so bad at that haha. And what size shoe do you wear? I have kind of big feet for my height, I'm an 8 :/ I would totally send you those shoes to borrow, not even joking!

  18. I'll tell you what's better...Pittsburgh lol Just kidding, well not really, but I guess you're allowed to love Cleveland since I'll admit that it is one of the better places in Ohio.

    Enough of that. These pictures are perfect. Love the location (Lake Erie, woot!) the dress and how you styled it and of course you haha I love that you put so much thought into your locations! You certainly go above and beyond for fashion blogging, which is definitely noted. Sounds like you guy had a great time too so win win!
