Tell me about one of the items you’re wearing.
The bow shoes I had just received in the mail the day before I came into the WORN office, so I was too excited to show them off. After searching for flats that I liked all over the city and coming up empty handed, I saw these on Etsy and immediately ordered them without even blinking (it helped that I have a huge girl crush on the seller too). I don’t think I had ever bought an item of clothing before 9 a.m. before.
What inspired this outfit?
Sunshine, summer, bike rides, and cupcakes. It was Anna Wornette’s birthday, and birthdays always tend to bring out the ultra-girly side of me.
What’s the best book to read in this outfit?
Pale and loose summer dresses, such as this one, always remind of Cecilia from The Virgin Suicides by Jeffery Eugenides. He character wears a vintage wedding dress up until — spoiler alert — she commits suicide. The novel is so romantic and melancholic, I could definitely picture myself reading it in this outfit, sprawled on some grassy patch.
What style icon would wear this outfit?
Most style icons that would wear something like this are all probably under five feet tall and enrolled in Brownies. Michelle Tanner, perhaps?
The dress is from Urban Outfitters, and the crochet cardigan is from Value Village. The watch was a gift from my best friend, but I think it was found at Value as well. As mentioned, the shoes were purchased on Etsy, from KenndeyHolmes’ lovely shop.
