In Dreams

Dress: Tresics, secondhand, purchased with store credit // Necklace: Local antique mall, $8 // Belt: Tie from a jacket // Shoes: Payless

The other day I was lamenting about how I don't have any good casual spring dresses. Then, either as I was falling asleep or waking up, I semi-subconsciously remembered this dress and randomly thought to add this waist tie from a jacket. Sometimes I'll have little epiphanies en route to dreamland. They're not always fashion-related but are usually creative in nature. I wish it would happen more often! Does that ever happen to you?

sometimes, in the car, i'll just be sitting there and my BF will ask me "is everything ok?" then i giggle and say "of course, im just thinking of outfits " :)

yes, it happens all the time! unfortuantely, i so often forget these epiphanies come the next morning (sigh).
those wedges are amazing, by the way. i have been on a fruitless hunt for an affordable pair...payless, here i come.

Love the necklace?! I'll get inspired at the weirdest times, sometimes when I'm trying to fall asleep, sometimes when I'm just kind of zoning out thinking about nothing really.

I love this combination. I have been having lack of proper spring attire woes as of late. But seeing you is making me rethink some of the dresses I do own.

That dress looks great on your little frame. That happens to me so often, falling asleep and then wa la.. inspiration.. it's a good thing!

Celine said...

Yep, but I usually fall asleep and then can't remember for the life of me what I was thinking about. Should probably write it down. Anyway, I adore this picture. So utterly romantic. :)

Your outfits lately have been spot-on-FABULOUS! Maybe it's the new hair that is giving everything the extra 'WOW' factor (?).

Wow. :)

I'm a writer, and when I'm lacking inspiration and nervous about a looming deadline, this never fails: I get an idea as soon as I'm about to drift off, so I have to rip myself from bed and write everything down lest I forget!

Love your new hair, by the way.

This photo is great. I love the trees and how they match your belt, haha. Spring is definitely in the air.

It happens to me all the time when I'm falling asleep. I write great music that is probably going to make me famous, but alas, when I awake I can't remember any of it.

Apparently I went to sleep feeling guilty about owning too many dresses (20) and not wearing alot of them. I decided to clear out four as give-a-ways almost precisely upon waking. They're super pretty too, but so long for now! And somehow 16 seems like a much more reasonable number. To think that I could wear a different dress each day for two weeks and still not wear them all. Insanity.

Love that necklace! Great photography.

La Stylin Girraffe!

Pretty girl, pretty trees, pretty clothes!! PRETTY! So lovely. And YES. On the way to dreamland I almost always stop by WhatwillIweartomorrow land. And oft times I encounter Epiphany (who in his allegorical form wears a top hat and has a British accent).

i love those trees. it looks awesome.

I do have those moments. Unfortunately the outfit idea doesn't usually turn out as great as I imagined though. But it certainly did in your case! These are lovely photos. I love how the belt almost matches the blooms.

Those shoes are from Payless?! Oh my! Did you buy them recently? Because if so, I need to head to the mall!

This is mad glamorous. I love it!

I know exactly what you mean, it does happen to me too. I love it when it happens... it just doesn't happen nearly as much as I'd like.

I love how you springified the dress one can never underestimate the powers of a good belt and other accessories.

I have epiphanies in the shower normally. I am glad someone else has epiphanies at odd times too - I don't feel so silly now.
