Golden Snitch

What I Wore:
Dress: Made By Me
Belt: Fairweather
Shoes: Ardene
Tights: Dollorama
Brooch: Universal Studios (Harry Potter Section)

Another nautical themed ensemble for you today. I wore this when we were driving down from Orlando to where my Aunt is staying in Miramar Beach. I wanted to get some nice shots of the outfit outside, but by the time we arrived it was too dark. These pictures were instead taken inside the room my sister and I were sharing for the duration of my visit. Sorry that these pictures are a bit out of focus, it was hard to tell on the camera and the lighting was kind of weird in the room. I absolutely love this golden snitch brooch. I bought it in the Harry Potter section of the park on the first day of our trip. In case you were wondering, yes Ia m a huge nerd. Like I mentioned before I have terrible luck with brooches. I didn't get a chance to wear this one until the Thursday of the trip (I bought it on Monday) and one of the wings immediately snapped off. My heart sank because I didn't think I would be able to exchange it since the store I bought it from was actually inside Universal. Luckily there are two smaller stores outside of the park entrance and I was able to whip in and exchange it without a hassle before we hoped in the car for the 7 hour drive to my Aunt's. I actually amassed a rather impressive collection of pins/brooches during the trip which I will be showcasing over the nest little while I am sure.   

 As you read this I will be flying in a plane out of Tallahassee airport and landing in Buffalo. My flight leaves at a stupidly early hour (7:20am, blagh) and we have to leave around 2:30am because there is an hour time difference (I am currently an hour behind Eastern Standard Time). My parents and sister are staying until the end of the week. Actually they are leaving Mirimar on Wednesday and driving to Atlanta for a few days. I am kind of sad because we didn't end up going to New Orleans, it would have been too much of a hassle, but the trip was still awesome, so it's all good. I will be posting my favourite pictures from the trip throughout the week so stay tuned if you want to see what I got up to while I was away! 

P.S. I got a haircut but you can't really tell in these pictures. There are two strands at the font that are longer than the rest of my hair. I am pleased with how my bangs turned out. It might be easier to make it out in other pictures from this week.


  1. Love, love, loving everything about the outfit!! Very cute.

    1. Thanks! I was waiting for warmer weather to break out those shoes and dress together. It felt great to finally wear them together :)
