Twisted Braids Of Lilies Knitting

the clothes horse, purple tights, ruffle dress, built my wendy, fall, spring, outfits, daily, style, fashion, booties, skater boots, seychelles, braids, retro
It is mildly amusing how many of my outfits are autumn appropriate lately. Aren't these booties meant for stomping through crunchy, brown leaves? Perhaps my wardrobe is beginning to reflect my excitement for fall. Usually I dread the end of summer, but as I start to make plans this time around it seems like some fun things will be happening. No details yet because things aren't cemented and it's more exciting when you're surprised...

I've been wanting to do that to my hair , but I think it is too thick. I love this dress!

Darrah said...

Part of living in Washington is that odd weather. I have to agree that we're lucky in a way. We get to play with fall layers all year long! :)

Carrie said...

I love your milkmaid braids! I wish I could do this as well as you do, but my hair has so many layers that it looks like a spiky crown sticking out of the braids. :)

Sara Lynn said...

I love the tights, they look great with that dress :) The boots rock!

I am with you on the autumn wear. I love the fall and almost all of my clothes are for fall :)

Bella Luna said...

the braids are so great! Plus your red hair looks so vibrant against the green background of the woods. Love it all!
I'm still on the journey to grow my hair out long, but sadly I have the slowest growing hair in existence.
Love your dress too girly!

you look so smiley in these - 'tis so sweet! :) and those plaits are adorable xxx

Charmalade said...

I'm actually holding onto my autumn-esque clothes, too! I realized that the weather I'm having now is roughly early fall weather, only it has that lovely, optimistic spring feeling (if that makes any sense, it did in my head). I know I'll definitely be missing my tights during the summer. :(

Toast with Charmalade

I LOVE Built by Wendy and I love those boots... though I don't think I could pull them off.

idealscraps said...

Simply darling! Love that dress, and the mention of Target is making me miss home a little bit more (I'm in Vietnam for another three months). Lovely combo altogether.

Annie said...

Would love to see a post on good places to shop in Olympia and your area. I live in Portland and plan to visit a friend at evergreen soon so any advice you have is awesome.

Eli said...

Blame it on global warming!

I did my hair like this the other day too! Now I just need to brave wearing it in public!

fashionforwriters.com said...

Ooh, I can't stop dressing fall appropriate either. I think I'm also really excited for fall but I'm also excited for summer and for it to be warm enough to wear shorts and go bare legged! I love your milk braids Rebecca! And that dress is always beautiful on you.

Likely Badger said...

I love the hair! I do the same thing with mine. Since I have super-thick hair, it's my summer hairdo :) I also love the way you've been pairing a blazer-type jacket with dresses. Very Cute!!

Winnie said...

Your hair looks so cute like that. Love the close up of your necklace too and every single time you wear those boots, I express my love for them! So yeah, I'm going to do it again, they're Amazing!

SO. said...

i cant believe your hair is long enough to do that. i did it once cause braids are just awesome and then my mom said what are you, a kid. hahah but yeah love your outfit. and im seeing that the colors that complement you the most is purple, green, and red. and its always a surprise when you wear black. but i like this.

michelle_ said...

milkmaid braids = love


the BBW dress looks wonderful with boots and tights, like well-groomed gypsy xD

Kathyrine said...

Autumn is my favorite year to dress for! :)
I love the hair. I think mine is too short--it only goes to my shoulders-- to do it. I guess I'll have to wait...
Lovely outfit~! The dress is sooo cute!

Joey said...

oooh! I'm loving this look, I love all of these warm color tones. I actually wish it was cooler where I am so that I could still rock my tights!

How did you do your hair?! It's amazing!!!!!!
A video? Pretty please? :)

Chloe, Butterfly Cupcakes said...

I love your hair braids, I've tried this style many times and I can never get it to look as lovely as yours does. I've also been on the lookout for maroon tights like yours.

And just to tease you, It's Autumn here right now :) and I am LOVING it. hehe.

PenPot said...

Everything about that outfit is gorgoeus!
I can't decide what I love most!

MOUSEVOX VINTAGE said...

Yay for braids! Mine have been sitting atop my dome like this all week (mostly out of sheer-laziness, though).

Damsels said...

Anha said...

Ooh!! You look like Carey Mulligan in the third last pic - so pretty! I think short hair would suit you. Would you ever cut it short?

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@Anha, I don't think I'll cut it short for a long, long time. I had a bob when I started my blog and a very unfortunate pixie cut when I was in high school. It seemed like a good idea, but it actually makes styling my hair so difficult.

Madolin said...

long hair is better =P

I think this is one of my favourite outfits =]

you look lovely

Asha said...

I love that necklace. You're too damn cute. This may be the first time I've posted a comment on here, so.. hello! Cool blog. You dress much better than I have the courage to.

hopefulheart said...

i have been trying to grow my hair long just so i can do this very hair style! i'm soooo close...

Stephanie said...

Love the dress and your braids. Thanks for showing that it's 2 braids and pinned on top. I have been trying to come up with an easy way to do that look because I stink at french braiding. Yah! <3
