i love head scarfs. i'm finally getting the hang of wearing them 50s pin up style, with my hair up, and just a little knotted tie in the front. that took some getting used to. i've also been wearing them with maiden braids or top knots, as in yesterday's post. but recently, i keep noticing girls wearing them in little bows. as usual, i love the look on them, so i feel the need to try it for myself.
i'm not going to lie, i feel a bit like mini-mouse with the bow. i'm sure it doesn't help that it's polka dotted either. i'm sure it's like with anything else, and i just need to get used to it. i also think that once my bangs are trimmed (tomorrow, thank goodness) that i'll like the look better.
i have to say that this is one of my favourite dresses. i rarely wear it in the fall/winter, even though it's easy colours to winterfy (is that a word??), it's just so magically summery. it's a dress that i feel pretty in, it flatters my shape, and the colour brings out my eyes. i tend to wear it often on little dates with dominic. which makes me like the dress that much more, because when i have it on, i'm reminded of all of these happy moments.
and might i just add that i think this is now a favourite spot for picture-taking. i know it's busy, with the plates, suitcases, and photo wall... and the love seat manages to make it's leg and arm appear in each picture... but it's just such a pretty spot in the house (if i do say so myself), and it tends to compliment my dresses!
