What I Wore: Making a Memory

What I Wore: Isn't It Iconic Dress (The Pink Owl via Modcloth), Brown Sweater (Old), Harjuka Socks (Modcloth), Shoes and Belts (Old Navy), Necklace (Forever Twenty-One)


I was amazed, looking back over the not-quite-a-year I've been blogging and found- not one shot of Heart Mountain. After all, it's a pretty unique peak, and even with a whole basin of mountains, Heart Mountains dominates the landscape of the area and is mentioned as part of the name of just about every doctor's office, print shop and public venue around. It actually has a rather sad history; it also lent its name to the largest relocation camp during the 1940s, though today only a scant number of buildings still stand as a reminder of this. But despite that, I love it. As my father  always used to tell us, "When you see Heart Mountain, you know you're close to home."

Speaking of things I love- this outfit is my new favorite. It's almost all Christmas items. The dress is the Isn't it Iconic dress from Modcloth and despite being shorter than I realized, it is both comfortable and endlessly remix-able. The Harjuka socks are also Modcloth and provide a cheeky yet slightly risque twist to things. I like the Little-Girl-Grown-Up vibe. The belts remind me of ice cream somehow and were a complete surprise from my mom- good eye, Mother! And, of course, the necklace is the one my engagement ring had been tucked into on Christmas Eve. The ensemble is what I wore when we went rounds visiting everybody on Christmas day to wish them a Merry Christmas and announce things, so already every time I put any of the items on I'm reminded of a good thing. Do you ever tend to associate a memory with the clothes you were wearing at the time? Share about it in the comments; I'd love to hear about those memories too!

  1. Ooh, I love how you knotted your double belts! I love wearing two belts, it adds such a punch to an outfit. I really need some over the knee socks. I thought I bought some one time and I got them home to realize they didn't even come close to my knee, haha. I really love the look of this ensemble, very sweet with your ruffled cardigan!

    1. Thanks!

      That is too bad about the not-so-knee high socks! Hopefully you were still able to use them to create a cute look though...

  4. Kristian I think this is my FAVORITE outfit of yours, its so so cute! The dress, socks, and double belts are all so pretty and the necklace your ring was in is the perfect finishing touch!
    Also, as I am currently in my post-vacation slump and hating Colorado, these pictures actually make me a little excited about winter again because the backdrop is so beautiful! Loved the story as well!

    1. Oh, thanks Hannah!

      Post-Vacation slumps? Ick, though it IS hard to want to get out and shoot pictures in the Rockies in winter. I'm glad this is getting you a bit more excited to start shooting in CO though (though I am enjoying all the vacation pics too!)

  5. Oh you always have *the* best backgrounds- you’re lucky to live in such a scenic place. And I agree with Hannah, this is probably my favorite outfit from you. I like the pops of color from those two belts and I love knee highs with dresses! Too cute

  13. holy moly i can't believe you are only in high socks and no layers but a cardi!!! I was way more bundled up today and there was def no snow around. but anyway, besides the point, I love the double belts & the dress is great on you! that second picture of the landscape it amazing, looks like a postcard. really sad about the history but doesn't change the natural beauty of the place. so cool you live there & glad you had a wonderful Christmas going around, I haven't done that in so long but it's great.

    1. It really probably is silly all us bloggers taking off our coats for photos, but it isn't for long stretches of time!
