Botanical Fun

These pictures are from my outing to The State Botanical Garden of Georgia, which just so happens to be conveniently located about 8 minutes from my apartment. There were still a nice amount of flowers blooming so it was really pretty.

I decided I needed to get more wears out of my pretty Steal the Game Show dress from Modcloth so I took some inspiration from other bloggers and wore it as a skirt! I actually really liked how this outfit turned out. Plus it was easy to walk around in all day because I wore nice, comfy Keds.

dress (worn as a skirt): Modcloth.com
blouse, belt, bag: thrifted
cardigan: ann taylor loft; thrifted
shoes: keds
sunglasses: kohls
earrings: forever 21


I quite enjoyed my brightly colored nails. They're China Glaze Papaya Punch with an accent nail of Electrify from the Capitol Colours collection. I've been loving having the whole Capitol Colours collection. Especially since it's Hunger Games themed.





If there's a person statue somewhere, chances are I'm going to take a picture with it. 


I'm glad it's the weekend, but then again all I have time to do is write/start my paper that has been looming over me. There may be some sort of mental senioritis block going on in my brain because I can not for the life of me make myself do this paper. Even though it's the last one I ever have to do for undergrad! The. Last. One. But seriously. Epic senioritis going on right here. 

I hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Love how you wore a dress as a skirt. Very very clever. It looks like you had a wonderful day and if I were you, I too wouldn't want to write that paper!

Clara Turbay said...

Very good ideas i´ll be back soon!

SomeoneLikeYou said...

Oh boy you are just the cutest! One thing I absolutely love about your style is the constant different combinations of colors you use. I'm sure your closet is a beautiful rainbow of prints and patterns! ❤

I love the print on your skirt and the setting is amazing! Also I'm jealous that it looks warm in Georgia. It's snowing in Ohio.

The Jones said...

Oh my stars and garters...fabulous vintage look here! You've got the most adorable hair and accessories, plus the full skirt and cardi...really lovely 50s ensemble. And the zigzags are such fun!

I LOVE YOUR SKIRT

April, Everyday Forgotten said...

Is it bad that I think I actually prefer it as a skirt than as a dress haha? Such a lovely place to visit too! Looks like you had a great time!
