Hey all! Jana, from Small Town, Big Smile! here today styling up this adorable dress from Elana. I thought it was the perfectly appropriate autumn dress, seeing as we get quite a bit of rain here! I couldn't wait to pair it with a floppy hat and my hunter wellies!
When this dress came in, I was so pleasantly surprised! I hadn't noticed the v-neck front, so how I intended to style it didn't pan out (with a lace blouse under it)... My next option was to wear a red and white striped peter pan collared shirt over top, and just have the dress-as-a-skirt, but Marisa had a similar style (see below). However, sometimes it's fun to be simple and just accent the dress with a cardigan and tights or socks. So that's what I opted for.
I'm not sure if any of you remember where my post-title came from, but it was all I could think of when I was trying to think of a title with "umbrella"... I swear my brain was blocked from any other possibilities. Does that happen to anyone else??
