Miss Candyfloss + Flowering Fields

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

The place where I snapped my photos this time is actually a vegetable garden during "garden season".  I love that during the off seasons, every time I stop through, something different has sprouted up.  This is actually where I snapped the photos for this post, and it's so crazy how much it's changed in just a few weeks.  Also, random, but when did my hair get so long?! It totally snuck up on me looking at these photos and with hot weather approaching I may chop off a few inches for my own sanity.

I love shirt dresses, they're one of my favorite styles of dress because they have such a wonderful silhouette and they're such a classic mid-century staple wardrobe piece.   When I saw the Dorit-Sue Shirt Dress, I immediately fell in love because it's a perfect recreation of the style with a really fun modern twist.  I love the oversize collar, big buttons and wide belt.  Usually, wide belts look a little awkward on me because of my short torso, but I really liked this one.  I chose this adorable floral for my shirt dress (that is sort of reminiscent of awesome vintage sheets) but the whole collection of shirt dresses are swoon-worthy, especially this one that looks like a vintage candystriper uniform.

// My favorite flower is sunflowers, hence the semi-regrettable decision almost 10 years ago to get black + white sunflowers tattooed on my left arm... which everyone thinks are daisies. haha.

What's your favorite flower?


  1. These photos are gooooorgeous, and you look beautiful in this dress! I really need to start scouting out new locations for photos...

  2. Beautiful! Hard to believe it's the same place as the previous post! This dress is adorable, I am loving that collar. I looove flowers and florals (as I'm sure I've expressed before haha) every year I grow a small lot of sunflowers and day lilies.

  3. I love the collar on that dress! Right now my favourite flower is Apple Blossoms, because my house is surrounded by old Apple trees in flower. This summer I am planting a big flower garden for natural dyeing- I've never really grown flowers, so I am pretty excited!

  4. Beautiful photos and that dress is gorgeous, got to love a beautiful floral print!

  5. How would you say the petticoat from modcloth holds up shape wise? My hell bunny one has somewhat lost shape and I'm in the market for a new one
