Be like the squirrel

"When problems overwhelm, us and sadness smothers us, where do we find the will and the courage to continue? Well, the answer may come in the caring voice of a friend, a chance encounter with a book, or from a personal faith. For Janet help came from her faith, but it also came from a squirrel."

from the intro to Little Acorns by The White Stripes





Every time I put on my new acornucopia dress I find myself mouthing the words to that song or screeching my favourite nonsense line: oh oh uh uh oh
yes, I call the made up words nonsense because "the problems hiding in your curls" makes such complete and utter sense. ;) So yeah, short story long: I got me that acorn dress :)





I can think of a million ways to wear this comfy number but I figured for starters I'd go for the easy option and not even belt it. I really like the loose fit (size down you guys - believe it or not: I did!) Who could resist acorn print?



Thanks for your lovely comments on Saturday's post :) There were some great questions which I'll do my darndest to answer in some further photo tuts in the near future.

Have a great start to the week you all!

Hat: ex Mom's
Dress: acornucopia dress from modcloth (thanks Mama)
Cardi: charity shop
Shoes: eBay

  1. Oooooo your acorn dress is fantastic, a wonderful length, and your cardigan looks so comfy. Time for me to start thinking of winter clothes - I can't wait - goodbye hot summer.

  2. That acorn print is adorable...I'm such a sucker for cute/quirky prints on clothing. I've decided I need to get a pair of baby blue tights...I always love how they look with all your dresses. Another perfect ensemble! xx Marisa

    P.S. I love that song:)

  3. Ooh, I saw that dress and thought it was pretty darn cute, and I really like the unbelted loose look.

    Thanks for getting back to me on that; I wish I'd thought to weigh down my tripod yesterday when it was blowing a small gale in my back garden! I'll be looking forward to future tutorials. : )

  8. I certainly can't resists that acorn printed dress either. I like all the blues in your outfit. There's just some dresses that transform me into a 12 year old who skips and sings nonsense songs too.

    Anyway you're outfit is adorable and I love your cardigan! Modcloth has one just like it that I've had my eye on so again, you are sooo lucky!
