mara hoffman on the plains

I  got this dress awhile back, but haven't worn it much. It is one of those clothing items that are very...memorable. Something you can't wear often because everyone will know that you just wore it. Is this a dumb mindset? I can wear the same shorts, the same plain shirts, even not-so-plain tops and dresses, but this one is special. So detailed, and completely suited for my liking. Mara Hoffman gets me. She understands me, okay? Anyway, despite what these pictures depict, I do not live on a farm, nor do I live "in the country". I live in a pretty decent sized city, in the heart of downtown. I forget how peaceful (and incredibly windy) it can be outside of this city though. Sometimes the prairie and flat land can be the most beautiful. You've never seen so much sky, and so many stars until you've come here. What a beautiful day.

  23. what a fashion paradox; that dress combined with the blouse looks phenomenal. the dress looks so funny and it is full of color, but i love the bohemian vibe. the rings look smashing, the more the better.

    ReplyDelete
  24. This outfit.. I lovvve!
    That jacket, the dress.. (Mara Hoffman does no wrong!) AND those rings (I'm also a mass ring hoarder.. amongst other things lol).

    I have to admit, I'm a little flustered. I want everything in these pictures..
    Such gorgeous photos too!
