This outfit is kind of like this year's version of this outfit that I wore all the time last summer.  I never thought this silly skirt (and the two others in different colorways) would become such a staple in my wardrobe and that they'd actually hold up so long! I've been wearing this outfit constantly since I bought the shirt a few weeks back. I've kind of been on a stripe kick lately. Nearly everything I've purchased in the last two months has been striped.

Check out those new teefies! I'm still getting used to seeing myself without braces. I mean, c'mon, I haven't seen my teeth in two years and I've never seen them looking like this. One thing I'm really excited about is I no longer have to look at awkward pictures from outfits shoots where when my smile would drop and my top lip would be kind of stuck on my braces. Haha. I definitely won't be missing that, at all!

Well, I'm off! It's going to be a busy Monday and I've got lots to do. Hope you have a fabulous start to your week.

  1. I love this outfit, and yay for the teeth!
    I blogged about a dress I wore lately which made me think of your outfits! http://dinoprincesschar.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/spring-green-swap.html

  2. Your teef! Hooray! I can't decide whether I want braces or not... I always find more 'fun' things to spend my money on ;)

    1. Haha! I definitely know what you mean, there are certainly more fun things to spend money on but they were worth every penny. I hated my teeth before, they weren't even that bad either! Now I'm that annoying kid from middle school that doesnt shut up about their teeth. "hey, look at my teeth." "did you notice I got my braces off?" "don't my teeth look awesome?!". Hahah.

  3. Loved the outfit. :)
    That chapel is so beautiful... I wonder how it look inside.


  4. You look so spring! I want to look spring too! :D

    Cute outfit!

  7. Eep! I love your outfit! And your teeth are perfect! I also had to get used to see my face without braces, I had mine for 4,5 years. I hated them!

  8. Congratulations on being braces-free!! Your teeth look great, and I bet it's a relief to be done with them. I had braces too and felt like they were going to be on forever! In the end, it's worth it, though. :)

  9. I love all the little details in your accessories, and love your shoes!

  10. Such a great outfit and congrats on getting your braces off! Such a lovely smile, worth all the time waiting, huh!? I only had my braces for about a year and I missed them at first and wanted them back even though I loved seeing my new smile. I still love seeing my straight teeth in pictures now compared to pre-braces and with braces! You look lovely as always little lady!

  11. This is a great outfit!! I love the stripes and dots and how your hair really pops!! And getting your braces off is the best feeling evvvvver

  12. You have such a wonderful smile! All in all you are quite pretty. ^^

  13. Stripes, polka dots and denim, OH MY! You're too cute, mama!

  14. SO cute! That camera bag is awesome!

  15. The stripes and dots go so well together :)

  16. You have no braces!!! You must be so excited. : )

  17. Lovely outfit and photos. I really love those shoes!


  18. Ooh I love the chapel of rest! Rich used to live next to a graveyard that had two of these in. They were boarded up, but one of the doors was busted open. It had such beautiful details on the inside!

    Oh, and your teeth look gorgeous!


  19. I love everything about this outfit!

  20. Awww, you look lovely without your braces! I am so excited for you (as someone who knows the pain of having braces). But did your teeth feel really slimy when they first came off? They did for me (very forget that feeling).

    1. Not at all! I was expecting them to since that's what everyone said. But they weren't slimy feeling at all.

  21. I have the same skirt in a peachy color! I absolutely love the mixed prints in this outfit and your classic jean jacket. Such a cute spring look.

  22. Congrats on getting your braces off :) I had them when I was younger and my lips were always getting stuck on my braces -- it was a very awkward time for me -- you pulled them off much more gracefully!

  23. real cute skirt, if I do say so myself. Glad you're enjoying the post-braces life! Eating tons of popcorn and caramel, I hope!

    1. I actually ate those the whole time I had my braces. There wasn't anything I like or craved that I couldn't eat.

  24. Yay! No more metal! That was an amazing day when I got mine off. You look amazing!

    Also, your outfit is so adorable! I am loving that hat.


  25. Good lookin teeth!! Your hair is so vibrant in these photos. And I've had a couple things from F21 that I've had for probably 5+ years that I wear often.

  26. Sometimes my boyfriend's lip gets stuck to his top teeth (no braces, it just happens) and I swear it is one of the funniest things ever to me. He looks like some weird elvis or something. Sometimes he calls my name and then tries to do it on purpose to get me to laugh :)
