Hats Off To Spring











Vintage straw hat, found in Maine years ago
Blouse, Forever 21, years ago
Wedges, Target (They're SO comfy!)

Hello again!
This outfit and these pictures are greatly inspired by one of my
favorite pictures of Audrey Hepburn, the one below! Audrey has been my biggest fashion icon since I was a little girl. I remember after watching Sabrina when I was 8 or 9 my Mom and I going on an all day search for a pair or black capris and ballet flats. Nowadays that's not too tough, but back in 1993 it was nearly impossible! I eventually found the capris and flats and proceeded to wear them almost everyday. Yes, my eight year old self even had my Mom take pictures of me trying to look like Audrey! I think I'll keep those pictures to myself for now, lol. Anyway I got these red capris, by accident really, thanks to the fabulous Katy K! Then, remembering my favorite picture of Audrey, I had to create a similar outfit! Though I'm no Audrey Hepburn, it was fun to pretend for a little while.

I live in Murfreesboro and love me some Katy K's Ranch Dressing! So much, she even helped me find the perfect Vintage Vegas Wedding dress. Thankfully, the dress lasted longer than the marriage. Great outfit and blog :)
