i think that lately i've been slightly over thinking things.  questioning outfits, my personal style, and what direction i see this blog going.  but, when i was to attend a crème de la crème le reve preview a few days ago, i decided to stop over-analyzing and just threw on some forgotten favourites.

the end result was an outfit that will go down as one of my all-time favourites.  as i feel like this is the exact feel that i wish i could achieve on a daily basis.  tulle, bows, pearls, and vintage-esq purple pumps?  so many pretty things in one little outfit.

if you were to paint a picture of your personal style, what would your ideal outfit look like?

  3. I absolutely love this outfit on you, Alicia! I have to say.. this is def one of my faves I've seen on your blog :) It's so chic, sweet and classy all at the same time. Hmm my ideal outfit would be.. black booties, faux leather leggings.. an oversized knit cardi, hair up in a bun, and some bling! Pretty much sums up how I feel right now haha.

    Anyways hope you'll have a wonderful weekend ahead!!!

  5. Those shoes define everything that is good about shoes. T-straps are so 1940's sexy, but the colour makes them modern. Love it.

  14. First of all let me just say, this outfit is so pretty and adorable! it's a grown up version of every little girl's princess outfit dream!
    and second I think questioning the direction of your life and other things in it is a normal part of life and growing. In my opinion if you don't questions things you won't know what to improve and learn from. Just my humble opinion :)
    Have a great weekend xo

  19. Alicia, you look lovely. This look is so soft and romantic and very you. I think it's normal to sometimes question your personal style. It's the thoughtful times that can lead us out of our comfort zones. I'm in my fifties and can say that my style is always evolving. And, I look to your blog for inspiration! Thank you!

  20. This outfit is beautiful! I love the greyish-purple colour of your tulle skirt and your heels remind me of the J.Crew t-straps that are so popular right now. It's perfectly girly and feminine, and I'd wear it in a heartbeat :)
