My Wardrobe: Dress For Adventure

In case you didn't know already, my blog has an official Facebook page! You should go like it right now if you haven't already! I'll be sharing some "bloopers" on my Facebook page from this photo session as well as giving some sneak previews on upcoming posts. To all those who have already liked my Facebook page and followed my blog, thanks for all the love and support!

This outfit is inspired in part by Amy Pond from the Doctor Who TV series. I also like to call it my Rose Briar-to-the-rescue outfit. 

I came across this skirt in a thrift store a couple weekends ago and I believe it cost me $3. I love the lace detail on the skirt. It’s subtle, pretty, but not too overtly frilly.

The shirt I acquired at Belk on clearance and I have no idea how much it cost since I think it is going-on-four-years ago when I bought it. 

This shirt encompasses my love for floral patterns and denim.

Large imitation pearl studs from Icing. 

The boots are borrowed from my sister, Ruth, and are from Vanity. I am not very brave when it comes to mixing patterns (i.e. floral with stripes) but I love the subtle chevron detail on the boots.

The rings are gifts. The Claddagh is a gift from a dear friend and the amber ring is a gift from my sister.

A massive thank-you goes to my sister and photographer, Anna, who spent the afternoon traipsing around downtown with me to take these photos. She's a pretty remarkable photographer and I couldn't really do this without her.

I would love to hear any and all comments, opinions, constructive criticism, etc. that you all might have for this outfit and the photos, so feel free to leave a comment below or email me at  


  1. Gorgeous pictures, Dani! I love your top too - super cute. I love those types of posts :).Ooh, that ring? It reminds me of Amelia Pond's ring =)

    Ooh, speaking of which, so have you seen some Doctor Who? I just got into it over the Christmas (big surprise for me!), and binge watched the whole show - I have to say I love it quite a lot :). (It has its crazy, stupid moments, but on the whole it's such a tear-jerking magical show!).

    It would be fun if you did a Clara Oswald outfit sometime, as I think you look a LOT like Jenna Louise Coleman :). (even your hair-style is a plus! ;).

    1. Aw, thanks so much Joy! I have watched Doctor Who for many years now, but I haven't kept up with the latest seasons. I'll have to catch up one of these days.

      I will definitely do a Clara Oswald inspired post sometime soon, especially if I start watching the show again. It's funny how the things you watch, read, listen to influence your style! :D

      Thanks again, Joy!

  2. I adore that top! And I just happen to have a dress that purple lace over a black fabric, and I love it. I always pair it with a denim jacket. I have never been bold enough to mix patterns like you have here. I always admire when I see it though, and it looks great on you. I tend to think that young women can get away with anything, but I have also seen women in their later years with very bold mismatched outfits that look fantastic.
    I especially love the last shot!

    1. Andrea, that's awesome! Lace and denim seem to go so perfectly together. When I'm an elderly woman, I definitely still want to be fashionably adventurous. :D Thanks so much!

  3. Fun outfit Dani! I really like your top. :D The background is really good; I like brick walls for outfit shoots (though I think I've only used one once...).

    1. Thank you, Paige! My sister helped me pick out the background and location. She has a good eye! We also had great lighting outside this day, which was a plus.

  4. Dear Dani:
    Love the look! Your outfit is a mix of charm and comfort! Great combination and so glad you shared!
