Raindrops On Roses

I got this dress from Modcloth’s spring sale, but it turned out to be trickier to style than I thought, because even though it’s sleeveless, the material is too thick and the color too dark for summer. That’s why it’s been hanging in my closet for the past 6 months, waiting for fall so that I can layer it.

I didn’t want to just put a cardigan over it and call it a day, so I decided to wear this shirt underneath instead. The end result is a bit more... Maria Von Trapp than I expected (hence the post title, also because of my rose-printed shirt), but I like it. Consider this an early Halloween costume 🙂

Dress: Modcloth
Shirt: Handmade Store
Shoes: Payless, thrifted
Post title: from the lyric of My Favorite Things (I actually prefer John Coltrane’s version)

    I love the details! The structure of the dress is really pretty, but I can see how it would be troublesome to style.

    Now I have My Favorite Things stuck in my head!

    This look is strong, but feminine all at the same time, I love it!

    Very cute! Love this style on you, the skirt is so cute. Your hair is adorable too.

    I actually really like it with the shirt underneath. 🙂 The dress is gorgeous too, of course. Good choice!

    Also, it’s nice to see something else to do with a button up! I’m having issues styling mine!
