Wardrobe Wednesdays - Lake Coral

Yesterday it was absolutely gorgeous in my neck of the woods. The sun was shining, birds were chirping, and my flowers and veggies were starting to sprout! While I spent the majority of the day working on projects (I made a pretty cool tshirt design for a friend!), I took some time to enjoy the weather as the sun began to set.

I had my brother tag along and play photographer. I think he did a pretty awesome job! Sure beats using the tripod in the backyard. Tomorrow (today I suppose - I write my posts a day ahead of time) we want to head back and take some more head shots for him to take to auditions. I also plan to wake up at the crack of dawn to get my fitness on and bike a few miles *wish me luck!

My brother got the lead this summer in Footloose at the theatre he is working for. I am pretty darn excited about it. Surprisingly I have never seen the movie...yikes! I should probably change that before I see his version. Any Footloose fans out there?

Serious question: How old is too old for pig tails? I feel like so long as they aren't above your ears it is socially acceptable? Maybe not... I am in desperate need for new hair styling tips. I don't think my hair has been this long since 4th grade. I haven't cut it in nearly two years! Anywho, hope you all are having a wonderful day :]

  2. See sometimes pigtails can look really right on me and then the next time I look like a girl playing dress up.

    Your photographs are great - the lighting in them is lovely!

  4. I love the outfit!

    Honestly, I think pigtails after a certain age can only be used sparingly & at home. =/ I think you look cute, though!

    Oh & if you watch the movie, watch the original. I despise remakes & I hate that they're re-doing Dirty Dancing. =(

    1. Thank you!

      I agree. I only wore my hair like this for the photos. I get too self conscious.

      I would definitely stick with the original :] I can't believe they are redoing Dirty Dancing - yikes!!

    1. Ughhh. I know, I know!! I am sorry. It is really bad. I just keep putting it off. I think I am afraid.

      Thanks. I don't really wear them out and about but I wanted to try something different.

  7. Gorgeous pictures, especially the top one. The colour of the skirt is goooorgeous, as is the colour of your hair! And you're never too old for pigtails, so don't let anyone tell you otherwise ;) xx

  12. Lovely outfit! Oddly enough I've never seen Footloose either(I've had the dvd for years though). And I am with you on the pig tails rule;)

  18. Oh, how I missed your blog!
    Okay:
    1. I LOVE you in this dress. It's such a lovely twofer!
    2. You are still within the appropriate age bracket to wear pigtails. I'm a few (or even several) years older than you and I'll still rock the crap out of them with no fear or shame. I think once your boobs are sagging to the floor, it's time to give it up. <--Eep! That too harsh? Otherwise I see some gals older than me wearing them and it's still really cute and whimsical.
    3. I've only seen the 80's Footloose, not the new one. I refuse to watch the new one. I wasn't too big of a fan of the movie as a whole, but I think that's because back then, the best dancing movie to me was Dirty Dancing. So in my little head I picked one over the other and Footloose lost. BUT, I'm sure your brother will do a killer job and could make me like his theaters rendition of it. :)
    4. I have two necklaces similar to yours. I love big ol' owl necklaces. They go with everything!
    5. I love your hair length, but I'm also a sucker for long hair. You know, I go to this site called Hollywood makeover on Instyle or something and look at all the hair colors and styles when I'm feeling bored with my do. There's just all these pics of celebrity hair styles that you can put on your own head after you upload a picture. Maybe that'll give you some inspiration? If you haven't heard of it already of course. :)

    1. I missed you lady!!

      Thank you so much :] Haha. I didn't realize so many people would think that it was separate pieces, but thats pretty cool.

      Hahaha. It works until you don't feel comfortable any more ;]

      I could definitely see how that would happen. I love Dirty Dancing. Thankfully I haven't seen it in awhile. Thanks. I can't wait to see it!

      I love my big owl necklace. I searched for one for the longest time and then finally found its way to me at Plato's Closet.

      I need to try that out. I am always bored with my hair. Thank you!!!

  19. You look lovely! This outfit really makes a statement! And the pictures are great, your brother is a very talented photographer! Oh, and I love owls too, and pigtails... it's never too old for pigtails! You look classy and chic, and that's what matters!
    Good luck!

  20. I love this outfit. Coral is such a stunning colour on you.

    As far as the pigtails... if you feel confident - rock it. As long as they aren't above your ears. :)

    1. Thank you! I wish I owned more coral. I need more vibrant colors in my wardrobe...

      Haha, thanks :]

  21. I love this dress! So pretty. And I think the pigtails totally make the outfit. You are not too old to rock them!

  22. Love the colors and shape of your dress, you look gorgeous! I also ponder the pigtail questions... I always try to justify them by saying, oh well if they are down and loose its okay, or if they are french braided its okay, or if im wearing athletic gear its okay... Obviously, my list of justifications is probably a little too long for a 25 year old "professional", but oh well!
    (Sorry for the creepy double commenting, your blog is adorable and you definitely have a new follower!)

    1. Thank you so much! Hahaha, I think they all sound like good justifications to me :]

      Not creepy at all. Welcome to ShyScout :] Thank you so much for checking things out!!

  23. Your hair is beautiful. I don't think there's an edge limit of pigtails...well, not worn like yours. If they were on the top of your head, that's pretty awkward. Your skirt is so pretty and your photos are lovely.

    1. Thank you! Haha, yeah I think anything above the ears is a no-no for my age. :]

  25. I don't think anyone is too old for pigtails, I personally love the look of pigtails. I loove this dress, that coral color looks amazing on you. Congrats to your brother. I'd definitely see Footloose, it's one of those must see movies.
