The Bridge of Madison County.

Dear Fashion Diary,

As I was thinking of a title for this diary entry, I knew I wanted the word bridge in it because
I'm posing on a bridge here. Then I thought of that movie Bridges of Madison County,
and realized, I literally live in Madison County, Idaho!!!
I've never seen the movie and have no idea what it's about but the play on words worked for me! I mean what are the chances. I was standing on a bridge literally in Madison County.


Anyway. Onto the outfit. I know my last post was about wearing an outfit more than one way,
so I feel a bit repetitive here but whatevs. Deal with it. haha!
This lovely dress can be worn So many ways! I love its potential.
So here is look number 1:
Nice and simple.

Look number 2:
Slightly more classy with a blazer and heels to wear out somewhere.


Look number 3:
more playful, with a denim jacket. Fun for a picnic and such!


This is the look I wore oot-and-aboot. Husbandman & I went on a stroll through the BYU gardens! Prettiest place in Rexbrg I'd say.
 


I found this necklace at an antique store for 5 bucks! I'm telling you, antique stores are the place to get your one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. I miss the Arizona shops.

  • dress: Maurices
  • black blazer/belt: thrifted
  • necklace: vintage
  • black heels: Charlotte Russe/Brown flats: Pac Sun/ Black flats: Ross
  • jean jacket: Ross

    So I just watched the trailer to Bridges of Madison County and...that was a piece of work. Super odd. I just wanted to use the title k? :)

    p.s. I want to give a big thanks to Gentri for her giveaway! I won 3rd place!

    p.p.s Can someone please tell me how to adjust my blog layout to allow me to have x-large pictures without sidebars overlapping??
Pin It!

Yay!! I'm so happy you won!! :D and thank you for the shout out! I love this dress! So cute and you're right! So versatile!!

About the layout- the best I know of is working with your HTML and changing sizes. If you have a basic blogger layout you can simply adjust the size in the design section. (like where it opens the black tool bar at the top of your screen and shows your blog below) or you can go into the actual edit HTML section and adjust the sizes manually. Try to keep your sidecars around 200 because most buttons etc are 125-200. :)

There you go. That's about as deep as my knowledge of HTML goes. Hahaha!

Nnenna said...

Cee said...

How funny that you actually love in Madison County and hadn't seen the Bridges of Madison County movie until after titling this post :) [To be honest, I've never seen it either, but I've definitely heard it's an odd film.] It doesn't really matter, though, because this striped dress is pretty much perfection no matter how you wear it. And the five dollar necklace? Amazing, not to mention a great deal!
xox,
Cee

Well it is pretty much the most adorable bridge I have ever seen, so I am not the least bit surprised that it lives in Madison County. And I LOVE the ways you have styled this dress! What a beautiful, versatile piece!
