Small Girl, Big Ideas

bows, birds, & bridges

Lots of my favorite things going on here :: a covered bridge, a bow necklaces, and a bird dress. First, this colorful bird print dress has been on my watch for awhile, but the moment I saw it go on sale, I was anxious to get home and purchase it right away. Everything with animals on it, all of the time, am I right?

I was venturing down towards this park to go to an abandoned gas/service station, but it really wasn't as cute as I remember it being when I first drove past it. So I made a turn on a side street near the park and noticed a weird barn like structure -- which ended up being this covered bridge! Sometimes I really do love Harrisburg for the plethora of little photographic gems it has.

Last week I came home to an adorable package from Anya of Pretty Pany in my mail - I loved the little card and packaging of this adorable necklace. I can't stop wearing it. I really love independently designed things - I love knowing someone made the thing I am wearing and that it's a different (and a lot nicer!) than some cheap nickel necklace from Forever 21. Basically I'm in love with this thing! Also - get excited - Anya and I will be doing a giveaway later this month!

  10. You're killing me with these adorable animal print dresses, I want all of them. This dress kind of reminds me of your Modcloth ice cream dress, which I also have an obsession with. Also, I'm looking forward to this giveaway, the necklace is lovely!

  34. I was eyeing that beautiful bird dress for a while, but didn't end up getting it. Totally regretting it now!

  35. This is one of the prettiest bird brings I have ever seen! I love all of your bridge shots, and that necklace is SO cute. I am right there with you on the independently made things, its definitely worth a few more bucks for it to not turn your neck green or turn different colors like the cheap pieces do! Definitely looking forward to your giveaway later!
    Happy Friday!

  39. I love the saying on the bridge. That is really cute. Also your dress is adorable. I don't think I have any animal printed type of clothes at all. How nice to receive packages like that in the mail!! Your birdies tattoo is so pretty.

  41. This is such a truly, truly lovely outfit. The thing that takes it to the next level though has to be the hat! Love it.

    Also- very jealous of the bridge. I've always wanted to see one. They look like fun!

  42. That bird dress is so cute and very you :). I love how you paired it with a mustard cardi. I wish there were covered bridges here in LA. We may have great weather but not a lot of character.

  46. I'm usually not a tattoo person, but your tattoo is by far the cutest one I've seen. I approve!

    I also adore this outfit, especially the dress. At first glance I thought it was your ice cream dress from ModCloth, but now I see that instead of ice cream it has birds on them. Absolutely precious. <3
