Spring Cotton

I was in Zara a couple weeks ago with two dresses in my hand. One, a small lace baby doll dress, and the other, the dress I'm wearing here. I tried on both and showed them to my mother, aunt, and friend Ronnie that were there at the time. I held up the lace dress and said "This is who I want to be," and held up the orange one and said "And this is who I am." They all unanimously agreed that the orange one was the one I should go with.

I think you made the right choice! There are people we want to be and then there is who we are and the most important thing is to be ourselves. It looks beautiful on you :) x

I agree. I think it is more you.

I'm the same way. I'm attracted to things that I want to be but then right before I pay for it, I snap out of it(buyer's remorse maybe). Remaining true to yourself and your style is more important and by the way, you have such an adorable style. I love it.

I never used to like this lenght hemlines, as they can be tricky, but you pull it off so well. I might also give it a go more often. And true, it is a great color for the seaon!

Your blog is so incredible. It's very inspiring- I especially love the Zodiac photos. Your style is absolutely amazing and I can't believe you're only 15! I would have killed to have your style and obvious artistic talent at that age!

I really like this post, not just because the dress is GORGEOUS, but also because you bring up a very valid point. Style is o expressive of who a person is, and sometimes it's hard to discern whether we're expressing who we are through what we wear, or whether we're using clothes to fill a persona that we want to be or try out. I've done that before, and I think now my style is truly expressive of me personally. It seems like you have too, and either way I love reading about your style in your blog. Thanks for posting!
