Senorita Snow White



My intention with this look was "Senorita On Holiday In 50s Italy". I was a little worried that a flower headband would send me into "Twee Blogger Territory". Although I have it in my head that visible muscle tone in the arms makes it impossible to be twee at any time. I kept my biceps flexed all day just to be sure.

I hope all the mothers had a fantastic Mother's Day, and everyone else had a good weekend.

Target headband
Gap top (ooooold and dyed)
vintage skirt, Etsy
thrifted vintage purse
Dr Scholl's sandals (I can't stop wearing these)

P.S. My husband took the photos. It goes against his nature to photograph humans (seriously, the only time people show up in his vacation photos is when they accidentally wander into frame), and I think he did a good job.

You look Snow Whitey indeed! That skirt is lovely. Also, I think hair flair is almost never wrong. Except that unfortunate hat at the Royal Wedding...but really, we can't let a thing like that scare us forever.

The title of this post made me stupidly happy. Seriously, I snorted with glee.

That skirt is amazing and you're not at all twee. You're just fab.

These are really beautiful photos. You look just like snow with with the red headband and top. The side knot is really interesting, and that skirt has so much whimsy to it!

You don't look twee at all, and I like the red top on you.

the hubby did an awesome job with these photos. i like the outfit. the skirt is lovely and i like it with the red.

i did think about my outfit, BTW, being a tad christmas-y. i have a tendency to pair red with green a lot. but thanks for reassuring me that it was okay!!!

hope you had an awesome mother's day too!!!

Well this is definitely not twee…the head band looks great! And for someone who doesn't normally photograph people, your hubby did a great job, Niki x

I must google twee- is it like tween? Hmm now I'm curious... Gotta love the biceps and what a beautiful Snow White you would make (much better than that awful Twilight chic they casted!)

Shybiker said...

Very cute outfit. And, sadly, I'm so old I had to look up "twee" to understand what you are saying.

Bella Q said...

Twee-hee! You look very pretty, senora!
