the jungle's flower girl




There is a select few items that I have worn in my lifetime that I wouldnt mind wearing everyday for the rest of my life - and this dress is one of them. A good friend of mine, Carla, designed and created this dress with absolute perfection. She was kind enough to let me borrow this dress & try it out for a shoot today - along with this head peice that she made aswell! I love the color's, fabric and all around dreamy-ness of it all. I took Nathan to my new favorite photo place and got him to take these shots, and I felt like a little forest fairy in this outfit - not a very happy fairy though, I look so angry in all these pictures (but im not, I promise!)

Can you believe Christmas is coming up so soon? I am getting so excited about going home to Canada. I remember when it was February and Nathan and I were talking about the plans for the end of the year and how we both wanted to go to Canada - and now its becoming a reality! I cant wait to see my family and the snow. I havent spent Christmas at home in two years so this is very exciting for me! Speaking of Christmas..what is on your wishlist? I would love to hear!

Have a great rest of your weekend peaches. <3

Dress : Handmade by Carla Mulligan (thanks Carla for letting me use it today!)
Floral Head-peice : Handmade by Carla Mulligan
Boots : Dotti





  1. Wow, this dress is amazing Kate! Your friend did such a great job! I also really love your flower headband. You look so great :]

  2. I'm loving this forest fairy look, and you look beautiful...not angry! I'm so happy you get to go home for Christmas with Nathan! How exciting :)

    On my WISHlist would be a new camera, but seeing as how I'm planning a wedding, this will remain a wish for a long time! Sigh. I wouldn't mind some new UO dresses though, I think that could happen!

  3. Oh my god, your friend's name is so similar to Cary Mulligan. Oh I've been meaning to respond to your email and I'll just do that here if you don't mind... So yeah, I don't mind. I love what you've done. But I think you should put your blogroll on the left sidebar, unless you're going to put more stuff there, because it looks a little bare at the moment.

    These photos are wonderful, please tell Nathan that. I love nature backgrounds and I fully utilized today's opportunity to get as many nature photos as possible. Great dress and headpiece! Adorable!!! You are an adorable fairy princess!

  4. these pictures are so gorgeous! LOVE the dress, LOVE the boots, LOVE the yellow flowers

    Oh, I would love to go to Canada for Christmas! haha It's not my home but I've always wanted to visit P.E.I. Well, ever since I read Anne of Green Gables, anyway. But I'll be in Panama for Christmas this year. Which is cool. But I would like to be some place cold next Christmas. :)
