Southern Belle

Wearing: Shabby Apple dress, Nina Originals sandals, Thrifted hat + bag, Elise M Collection bracelet. 

It's been quite sometime since I felt so pretty in a dress! I feel like my style in this outfit really shows my sort of "statement" style, the look I had when I first started blogging! It has a more southern belle, vintage-inspired feel about it, and it's a wonderful style to have for the spring and summer months. Maybe it's just me, but I don't feel like I've worn anything like this in a while, but it sure feels great to be rocking my straw hats and pretty vintage-inspired frocks again!

This beautiful gingham dress from Shabby Apple has such lovely colors in it, and it's modest style and tie neckline gives it just the perfect amount of vintage. Shabby Apple is without a doubt one of my favorite shops, because they always have such beautiful clothes that are vintage-inspired and one of a kind. Everything I get from there is of such amazing quality, and I don't feel like I'm giving into another trend, but rather I'm adding a classic, timeless piece to my wardrobe that I'll be in love with for years to come! 

With this lovely dress, I just knew I had to pair it with my equally as gorgeous shoes, so I wore my patent navy Nina Originals t-strap sandals! I told y'all, these shoes are going to pop up in every outfit you see on my blog this spring and summer! I also wore my thrifted straw bag and hat, along with a light pinkish beige beaded bracelet from Elise M. Collection. Unfortunately, I couldn't take anymore pictures than whats shown here, but lately I've been faced with quite a few scary people who I'm afraid are trying to rob or harm me while I'm shooting my outfits, so I had to cut the photo sesh a bit short. I am thankful that I did at least get these two nice photos, and that I'm okay! 



  1. I love that dress, Carly! I was actually thinking the same thing the other day because I bought a tripod to take my own outfit photos but I'm actually a bit scared to go out on my own carrying expensive cameras and equipement. You never know when someone can show up out of nowhere. I'm glad you're okay though, stay safe! xx


  2. I love the mix of the teal color in your dress and the cobalt shoes. It's a great pairing. Dresses are the best in our hot southern summers so I don't blame you for feeling great in this one. They're just so easy to throw on and breezier than any other clothing item!
