I wore this easy and breezy dress to my cousin’s college graduation from TCU in Fort Worth, Texas last weekend. I love the comfort of a long dress – there’s no worrying about showing off more than you want to! This dress is also not quite a maxi either, so I don’t have to worry about that awkwardness of the hem being slightly too short (#tallgirlproblems).
In other news, I have been selected as the blogger of the month by the Houston Fashion Bloggers group! You can read the feature here and learn a little bit more about me and my blog. I’m so excited! Fist pump!

I think this outfit is one part Audrey Hepburn, one part cowgirl. Put me in front of a mural of a cartoon dude barfing and you have complete ridiculousness. You’re welcome. Not to mention, I’m wearing FOUR gold bows at a time (the bag, the belt, and two earrings). Next time I’ll go for five.
Speaking of Audrey Hepburn, I’ve been on an Audrey kick lately. Just this week I watched Funny Face and The Children’s Hour. Both completely different movies, both fantastic. I mean, what’s not to love about Funny Face? There’s fashion, dancing, singing, Paris, and a VELAM Isetta (new favorite car)! And if you haven’t seen The Children’s Hour, please go watch it. That movie is really powerful and tragic.
What’s your favorite Audrey movie? Besides Breakfast at Tiffany’s, my favorite would have to be Wait Until Dark.

I’ve been having a bit of a blogger identity crisis lately. I know my fellow bloggers know what I’m talking about – what am I doing, what is my purpose, why aren’t people connecting with my blog, and what can I change in order to be more successful? One thing that had been nagging me for a while was my blog layout. I took the plunge last night and changed the entire thing by myself. I’m not sure why I thought it was a good idea to take on that big of a challenge on a Monday night, but I just went for it. I love it so far, but I’ll still be making some tweaks. For now it feels fresh and different, like that exciting new feeling you get when you rearrange your furniture. What do you guys think?
I’m so happy to debut my new blog design with an outfit that goes with my blog name, Shop and Twirl. I mean, what’s more fun than a twirly skirt? This kind of outfit feels very me – twirly, feminine, vintage-inspired, with a bit of sass.
