Life needs a remote.

Phew! What a whirlwind life has been lately, I'm still trying to catch my breath. The wedding is creeping up on us and is now less than four months away. How in the world does that even happen?! I swear, life seriously needs to come with a remote so I can hit pause, get lots done, take a nap and then hit resume. Oh and don't even get me started on the weather here. I'm ready for picnic weather and this thing they call spring just isn't cutting it so far. But alas, sunshine beat out the clouds today and here we are.

So I'm not entirely sure about this outfit yet. This dress has been sitting in my closet since last summer because I haven't got the slightest clue on how to style it. I've also been wanting to wear this sweater (and my favorite boots) before the heat wave kicks in, so presto chango, you've got yourself an outfit.
may4-02may4-04may4-03A few updates on the what to expect on the poor ol' neglected Simply Sunstar. I have a few things in the works and I can't wait to share them. I will be starting a new monthly feature, I have a project in the works that everyone can participate in AND I have a giveaway coming up soon. I promise, this little brain of mine has been working overtime on these long, rainy days.

I hope you are all having better luck with the weather and enjoying your Spring (or Autumn)! Oh and by the way, I absolutely LOVE talking with you all, so please never hesitate to shoot me an email or say hi on twitter, it just makes my day. Let's be friends! :)

H&M dress, sunnies and cardigan, Kolh's boots, Target socks, F21 belt

Your weather looks wonderful. Here at the moment we're having lots of sunshine like you but accompanied by a crisp Autumn air- it's my favourite time of year down under!

Yes. Life SO needs to come with a remote!! I couldn't agree more. As for the outfit? I'm really loving this mix of patterns, it's so lovely & charming. I'm such a sucker for stripes and love anything that has birds on it.

And how exciting that your wedding is coming up, oh so soon. Yay, can't wait to hear more about it in the coming months. xx veronika

Oh, hai friend!

I can vouch for you saying that dress is harder than hell to style. I've worn mine a few different ways.... but I've got major issues with how short it is on me.

I like this combo though :) The prints contrast each other nicely, and I love the pale pink color of the cardigan. There. Be confident in the outfit. After all, it's the person that makes the outfit cute, not the other way around!!!

This is such a great outfit!! That dress is awesome. I remember seeing it at H&M and wanting it SO bad! I think that was the perfect cardi to pair it with, and your boots & socks are so cute! I'm so excited to see the new things you have planned. ^_^

A giveaway coming up? Where have I been??? FML. Also that dress is my favorite thing of anything, but I was not in the vicinity of an H&M in time to get it back when it was on sale. Thank you for letting me live through you. Also that cardigan fuckin rules, I wear mine all the time, ARGH I feel like I haven't talked to you in ages, oh wait because I haven't. :(
