I have to be honest with you, I looked at my recent pictures of this dress and they did not do the color justice! I ended up wearing it again for Easter Sunday and took some more pictures for you that display the colors better. I also had hoped to show it off in a different with a fun hairstyle (achieved!) and a new hat ( . . . not so much). Not everything goes as planned!
I really did have fun creating this hairstyle, even though bits of it had started to fall out when I was able to take pictures after church. I think it managed to hold up all day! I need more practice with this type of updo, but I was quite satisfied with this iteration and am looking forward to trying it out again!
I did wear gloves with this outfit, but since I also played handbells in church, I had to switch gloves quite often, and they didn’t end up in these photos. Sadness.
Speaking of other things that didn’t turn out . . . I bought this lovely hat for Easter, but it did not end up working out. The hat is a bit small for my head, but I had thought that I could pin it to my head in a satisfactory way. It did not turn out that well. Three pins and it still rose up on my head enough to look strange and like a floating halo rather than a hat. Here is me squashing it down on my head.
And here is it lifting off of its own accord.
The lesson should always be sometimes things work out, and sometimes they don’t! You just have to roll through it.
