Kitty paws and tiny bows

Photobucket

This weekend Sam and I saw Moonrise Kingdom. Do I even have to say I loved it? I don't think so.

I see some plaid tents in my life soon. And maybe knee socks...

This outfit wasn't entirely film inspired, but I just don't seem to have any minidresses lying around (gasp!), and I was in a petticoat mood. 

This dress is something my aunt picked up for me at an estate sale, look at that bow trim! Not to mention the handmade tag. 

All I added was a little bee and grabbed my kitty cardigan while running out the door. 

And the photobooth at The Ace Hotel can never be passed up.

I love everything about this outfit! You look absolutely beautiful and happy here!

Very adorable! I haven't heard much of this film (been living in a uni-assessment cave) but it sounds interesting, I may just check it out when have a chance. I love that bee pin, it reminds me of the secret-mircophone pin in Pushing Daisies :P

Is that a cat paw in the last shot? I love it. It makes me imagine your cat is giant.

You look amazing! Such a wonderful blue!

Jessica Cangiano said...

There is such an incredibly sweet femininity to this look that draws me to instantly. I love the cheerful, summery blue, the delicate bow trim, the massively cute sweater, the classic saddle shoes, the whimsical bee pin. It's all beautiful, timeless, and completely my style, too.


Wishing you a relaxing, gorgeous weekend!
♥ Jessica

Another great outfit from my favourite blogger! Love the kitty cardigan, what a find. I am always trawling on etsy for sweaters with that silhouette, which end at the waist. So flattering. Thanks too for the heads up about the movie - looks wonderful!

I really want to go see Moonrise Kingdom, but there don't seem to be that many theaters round here playing it. :/ (Typical!)

Hope this doesn't sound creepy stalkerish but I was at the same movie with some friends and I saw you and I was thinking aah! a celebrity! I didn't have the guts to go up and say hello but let me just say I think you always look adorable and so well put together.

Solanah said...

Oh Monica I would have loved to have met! How funny we were at the same movie, it really is a small world :)
