Deer Arrow

Saturday, March 7, 2015



WELL, the day I took these photos was the day I learned that taking photos in between rain showers... results in peculiar "rose colored glasses-esque" lighting... THANK YOU NASHVILLE.  I was so excited to finally wear this dress, I had to tack it a bit in the back but it was a $12 find from Buffalo Exchange when Collin + I visited Atlanta and I love it!  I've decided spring will be the season for forcing myself into more casual 50s + 60s styles sans petticoat.  I've ordered a couple dresses that I can't wear one with and I can't wait to style them, I think this will give me the chance to have simpler outfits with bigger hairstyles because... I really love big hair y'all.

There are some days where I'm just feeling super lazy and don't want to get in my normal full dress and heels.  This outfit pretty much sums up my favorite way to have 'lazy days', but to not look like I'm having a lazy day.  My personal favorite solutions for lazy days?  Fun accessories!  The right accessories can take an otherwise boring outfit and add some unexpected flare.  This takes no effort and it doesn't compromise the ultimate goal, comfort and laziness.  

Y'all know I'm a cat mom so this Deer Arrow cat brooch is the perfect addition to my wardrobe.  I'm just gonna pretend that that's Ziggy and Beyonce on the brooch. ;)   Deer Arrow has a wide array of adorable wooden and acrylic brooches, but this one is one of my favorites.  It's such a simple piece, but it also makes a big statement.

  3. Oooohh, it's tricky to say which one I'd pick. They're offerings always make me swoon. It's a toss up for me between "Deer Friends" and either of the uber cute fox brooches.

    Thank you all very much for holding this delightful giveaway!

  6. Might be my favorite outfit post from you guys in a while. I love June's blue dress! That neckline is lovely on you! Also- Amanda, what a fab hair day you are having. Lastly, I'm not sure if it is subtly different photo angles are what but these are just really nice portraits of the two of you.
