beautifully buggy

This weekend my niece and nephew celebrated their birthdays with a bug themed birthday party. What does one wear to a bug party? A bug themed look, of course!

Exhibit A: print on my top

Is anyone else impressed that my three year old niece chose a gender neutral theme? I would have thought Frozen would have been a top pick, but  I guess she decided to go with less predictable. I like it; the party was was definitely beautifully buggy.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) As you can see from the photos, temperatures really dropped here this weekend! I put a skirt on over my shirt dress to add a little warmth and to style a seemingly summer dress for fall. I wore a skirt that wasn’t very fitted so that you couldn’t see any extra bulk from the bottom half of the shirt dress. Here’s the dress worn as a dress:

2) I think pins are an underutilized accessory in my world, and I think it’s high time to change that! I took my messy bun up a notch by using a bobby pin to affix a bee brooch as a hair accessory. Umm, why haven’t I been doing this more frequently? Nothing says class like a hair accessory! I’ll try to incorporate more hair accessories and report back.

Anyone else have brooch tips? I would love to hear them! Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so much! Hope everyone had a good weekend!

  1. Really like the quirky print of your top and the way you incorporated, not only mixed prints, but a fun colored shoe! I bet you were the buggiest aunt ever 🙂

  2. Just started following you and I love everything you do/wear on here. Just out of curiosity, do you take your own OOTD pics or does someone take them for you? Check out my blog when you get the chance! A follow would be extremely appreciated!
