Africa


It was hotter than Africa yesterday/today. No lie.

This dress its the bomb. It reminds me of T by Alexander Wang except it was 1/3 the price.

Target dress, vintage bag and vintage hat.

Target dresses are the best, comfy, cute and cheap

Breeahna said...

You even look like your in Africa! very nice, target has had some good stuff lately, although I gather Australian Target is a little different (probably worse)

haha with the hat, the neutral colour of your dress and the vibrant background, you do look like an adventurer on an expedition in Africa!
Yet again a lovely outfit! :)

You make me want to get a hat! I love the background and the dress, you kind of look like a very nice poacher hahaha.

yumiko said...

I agree with Yumiko... but it's an easy generalisation to make! The set of this photo is actual hotness (hehe - see what i did there????) and that dress is ON FIRE! (okay, i'll stop with the temperature related metaphors :s) love this, love your blog xxxx

Your background looks so cool and fresh. Love it, and your outfit lovely! Hope to see more. Have a good day.=D

Oregon's weather conditions are SEVERELY confused. They think its christmas time, where there is no need to be afraid, because at christmas time, you let in life and banish hate. And in our world, of plenty, we can share our smiles with joy, throw your arms around the world, at christmas time!

Lovely post. I have a strange fascination with Africa, although I've never been. The movie, "Out of Africa", is amazing.

I just noticed dthe quote by Meryl Streep. I really like it.

you could totally be in Africa in these photos. Or maybe India a la the beginning of the secret garden... or wherever Becky and Sara go at the end of A Little Princess... I think. Anyway I especially love your hat :)
