What I'm Wearing: Well, I Do Declare

 
Ok, so this outfit totally makes me feel like a Southern Belle. I feel like I should be sitting on a patio, drinking sweet tea, fanning myself and saying things like "I do declare" and "Bless her pea-picking heart." The pearls really add to that whole effect. But that's okay, I love the south and the spirit of classic ladies. 

When I saw this dress at Maurices (I am constantly going to have to hide my wallet from myself working there, you guys), I was so in love with the vibrant lemon zest color and cute lace detail at the bottom. Then I tried it on and knew I had to have it. I paired it with a multi-strand pearl necklace, a funky tulle headband and some flats, since I was working and heels don't cut it when you have to stand so much.


Dress: Maurices, Shoes: Dana Buchman via Kohl's, Necklace: Hancock Fabrics, Headband: Gift

What do you think of this look?

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
