Let Them Eat Cake

Apr 21, 2012




I came back home this weekend for a bridal shower, so I'm expecting a weekend full of pastels, colorful cakes, bows, and champagne. Maybe I should throw on a giant cotton-candy pink wig and make this transformation into Marie Antoinette complete.

 While I love coming home (it's shocking to see how full of food cabinets can get), usually ten minutes in I remember why I ran away to the city in the first place. Last night was a case in point. My mom wanted to get a peek at what I was planning to wear Sunday, and when I came out in socks and heels she put her hands on her head and almost started crying. Aw Christ. I probably shouldn't mention the flower crown I was planning to throw into the mix. dress (worn as a sweater)- h&m, $30| skirt- thrifted, $6| belt- f21, $7|, jacket- h&m, $30| boots- lucky, $40| bauble necklace- j crew, $70|

  1. I'm always easily reminded of why I don't like where my family does, too :). Enjoy the wedding weekend.

  2. This is hilarious. Everyone thinks I'm weird, too. When you live in a small town, it's something you have to get used to. Luckily for you, it was only a temporary visit! LOL

    I love what you decided on! This floral skirt is so pretty!

Not so much with my mom since she too is fashion crazy. But my dad...He just doesn't get it. ANYWAYS!! haha, I love your jacket. It looks great with that beautiful necklace!

  10. That's how I feel when I'm home for only a few days, too. It's an extremely small, Southern town, so I get the side-eye wherever I go. You look fantastic, by the way! : )
