Sun Kissed

As promised, my outfit post for today. I wanted to show you guys a little project I did for a class in high school that has been my favorite spring/summer dress ever since I made it. It's my pride and joy (I love the reaction when I tell people I made this dress!) I'm sure it will be pushed to second when I'm done with the dress I'm currently making for my sewing class now. But still - I need you readers to see it!





Dress; made by me
Belt; Target
Flats; Urban Outfitters
