Sunny Stripes and Princess Leia Hair

Helloooooo! Today was SO pretty outside... bright and sunny and ALMOST warm enough to get by without a coat! ...Almost. So I was in a pretty happy, dance-down-the-street-ey mood, which was magnified by the fact that my hair looked kind of like this lady's:

Which, I'm sure you'll agree, is a pretty exciting event.
I found the hair tutorial here at Scathingly Brilliant, an abso-stinkin-lutely ADORABLE blog that I just discovered on Saturday and immediately fell in love with.
Without further ado, here is the rest of today's outfit!


I made the dress from this pattern right before I left for Belgium. I'd seen the fabric lots of times before and was crazy about it, and then one day IT WENT ON SALE and there was much rejoicing/purchasing. The sweater is from a consignment store called Urban Attic in Louisville, the belt is from Target, and the bracelets are from here and there and everywhere.
Have a beautiful day!


  1. I have always loved Leia's hair but never thought it could look so good with a vintage look! Love it, so pleased to have found your blog :)

    1. We'll see if I can work her famous cinnamon roll buns into an outfit someday, haha. Thank you for following! =]

  2. Love your hair, cute outfit.

  3. How adorable are you! The print on that dress is so exuberant (and I'm always completely in awe of gals who sew their own clothes; I'm slowly learning more about sewing, but I'm not quite there yet).
