Putting The Pieces Together :: Part 3 / by Elise Joseph

Melissa is a newlywed {like myself} that enjoys cute crafts, antiquing and, more recently, living on a budget - thanks to Dave Ramsey. She also just so happens to have the most gorgeous wedding photos by Tec Petaja that you must check out here! Her blog "I Dearly Love To Laugh" is a must-read that includes her day-to-day happenings, home decorating ideas and great shopping finds. She tends to lean towards a romantic, feminine style, and her outfit choice here is no less lady-like.

To Melissa, "summer" means skirts and she picked such a lovely, breezy one. The accessories add a dainty, girly touch! You could wear this outfit most anywhere during the summertime, but she pictures herself wearing this number out strolling cute shops in an exciting beach town. Well, doesn't that just sound absolutely perfect?
