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.


Top: Gap shirt dress ($22 marked down from $60)
Skirt: Soprano via Nordstrom Rack ($16 marked down from $60)
Leggings: TJ Maxx ($5 marked down from $15)
Shoes: Sam Edelman via Nordstrom Rack ($50 marked down from $90)
Hair pin: actually a brooch (gift)
Cape: Nordstrom Rack ($25 marked down from $55)

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. Kids these days are so cool 😂 I Love your outfit especially the skirt. Just yesterday I bought a similar black n white wide stripped blouse. So same pinch on that 💝😊

  2. Love the polka dotted dress! It’s so different from the classic black and white ones as this Gap one really stands out from the crowd! That shawl is so warm and cozy! – Lena 🙂

  3. 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 🙂

  4. 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!

    1. 🙂 thanks so much!! My lovely officemate and friend takes about 90% of my photos; she is FABULOUS! My bf takes the other photos and is also so talented :)!! I’ll check out your blog ASAP; thanks for stopping by!
