English Garden

When I wear this dress I feel like I should be wearing a big hat and sipping tea in a garden somewhere in England.

I love the colour and print of this dress. It's so appropriate for spring! 

Suede shoes! These are probably one of the most comfortable high heels that I own that are over three inches tall. The thicker heel and platforms make these shoes a lot easier to walk in.
I'm such an awkward high heel walker so I will take all the help that I can get!

I’m not particularly a girly girl kind of dresser. I prefer pants to skirts, loose to tight, long to short and runners to heels. Consequently, I felt a lot better paring this ultra girly dress with my leather jacket.

In my opinion, there are three types of jackets that will never go out of style; 
leather jackets, trench coats and pea coats. 

To be honest, this jacket cost a little more than I would generally spend. I eventually decided to buy it when it went on sale since I thought it would make a good investment piece over the long haul. If the quality is there, and you maintain it well, I think some items are well worth the extra dollar.

When investing in leather, I recommend purchasing your item in a size smaller since leather stretches quite a bit. I would also recommend protecting the leather with a leather protecting spray to prevent water damage.

I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend. I would love to hear from you so please don't forget to comment and rate below!

This was my favorite to shoot to date. That transparent fabric and that sun, together, were perfection.
