sunflowers on our honeymoon | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

sunflowers on our honeymoon

I have been obsessed with doing double braids in my hair lately!







dress: similar here shoes: target bag:f21, similar here cardigan: old from jane.com

uhh by the way, my "smile" is so weird in these pictures! I keep doing this weird close mouthed thing thinking I look all vogue in my head haha oh well!

So I got this sunflower dress on our honeymoon in California last August. It was from the cutest little ocean shore boutique and I so wish I could remember the name! This one looks similar to mine here and I love these ones here & here.

Anyways, when I was in the little boutique, Jason and I just had a backpack holding all of our stuff (keys, wallet, gopro, phones etc) and a cute picnic basket we carried around with us holding some food. I went to the dressing room to try on a few things and came out wearing this dress and went to go find Jason but he was gone! I was kind of confused and he had all the money and stuff with him so I couldn't even buy it. I was just standing there in the stores dress and being confused.

The store lady asked if I needed help with something and I told her I was looking for my husband cause he had the money and stuff to pay for the dress. The lady looks at me really suspiciously and goes, "your HUSBAND???" We had just come from the beach so no makeup on and I'm short and people frequently mistake me for a 15 year old so I could tell this lady thought my story was bologna.

 I told her he was JUST right here and I asked if I could just go next door to see if he was in the shop and then she gave me a "do you really think i'm THAT dumb???" look as if I was going to leave the store and steal the dress haha I walked towards the door JUST to look out and see if Jason was outside and the lady got all worried and suspicious. Our stuff was sitting right outside the shop (uhh good thing no thieves were hangin by the boutique) so I grabbed it and bought  the dress while I was wearing it because I love it that much. And the lady already thought I was some punk teenager so I didn't even care if she thought I was a freak. I went looking for J & he happened to be next door looking at sunglasses and chatting it up with the employee! haha so there you have it. The story of this dress.

  1. I'm pretty sure I'll get the same look after I'm married and say I have a husband. Two years ago this guy I didn't know straight up said, "You look 14!" So I guess now maybe I could look 16?

  6. I remember you saying a while back how your mistaken for being super young all the time! I can just imagine this whole re-enactment in my head - hilarious. The dress is so stunning on you, so it was all worth it!

  8. Love that dress on you! I think you are right that being short may have something to do with the age confusion. I have had similar comments (though, I did marry young)... but I believe height has a lot to do with it.

    1. that you!! I totally think being short doesn't help my cause. How old were you when you got married? You and your husband are sooo cute! and i just saw that you're expecting, congrats!!
