Summer Fling






There are so many good things about summer- it should always be summer! I can think of so many things that make it the best time of year-but Im sure you can make your own lists too.
When the weathers hot it really forces us to develop a simpler style. Its the perfect time to cleanse ourselves and shift back to some basics- making our styles more deliberate.
I found this dress accidentially and its destined to be one of my staple pieces this season because it can be dressed up and down. I wore dancing this past saturday but I can see it at the beach, work, concerts, cafes and the usual adventures.
Oh, and I got a hair cut- by me! I cut 2.5 inches off AND added in layers.

super cute dress
okay so theres two ways to make pics bigger- either go into the html section and change the part that says "width: 375px; height: 375px" ( those numbers will probably be different) and you can increase those numbers, but you will want to keep the ratio the same
or a much easier way is using a choosing the picture size on your computer before uploading to picture hosting service like tinypic or photobucket and then posting with the html code
i feel like those are horrible instructions, but its pretty easy

good luck on the resizing thing, I'm always trying to take people's advice but it must be different for everyone's camera uploads.

That dress is really great- don't you love when you find a piece like that/

This dress is fabulous on you! Accidental finds are sometimes the best ones :) Great haircut! I got one to, though it needed quite a bit so I went to the salon. I'll do a post next week as it's quite a change. Hope you had a great weekend!

Hey Marie-Louise!

I gotta say you look total gorgeous in this post...your skin is so summery looking (which Im yearning for coz its winter for me!) and your hair makes you look like a black & white movie star! So chic & classic. Amazing how well your shoe colour matches your dress.

Oh and here is a link to follow about making the pictures bigger:

Zara has so many pretty summerdresses, and this is the perfect example! :)
I usually upload my pictures on Photobucket, and then I paste the html code into my entry. Hope this helps!

Maverick Malone said...

Really love that dress! The the shoes match perfectly!! :)

FOr making your pictures bigger, I would recommend putting them on photobucket and then pasting the html code in your posts.
If you change the size of the pics by going to "edit html" when making a new post and changing the pixel numbers, I found that it makes the pictures a bit blurry. Do you have adobe photoshop? It would make things a lot easier...After having photoshop, I don't think I could live without it!
