Have any of you ever tried taking outfit pictures in the mud... with heels on? If not, I most definitely do not recommend it- haha! We had our "big" storm of the season this past weekend ( aka, pouring rain on Saturday and Sunday, and that's all). Nonetheless, there are puddles everywhere and as you can see, the sky is overcast.
The moment I saw this dress, I knew it was love. It's from Vintage Living of California, a darling little vintage Etsy shop nestled right here in, where else, California! This sweet little frock is a brushed cotton, 1950s number. I can't get over how unique it is! The material has such a gorgeous sheen to it, and the wavy pattern on the skirt adds such a fun element of surprise. Plus, even though it's hard to notice from afar, the gingham actually has such blue threads mixed in there.
I am insanely stoked right now because at the end of this week I'll be escaping cloudy California, and heading over to Hawaii with my dear friend, Jenna. I can't wait to bring back all sort of lovely pictures for you girls, and you can keep updated on our adventures by following me on Instagram. With that said, I won't be able to respond to comments or emails until I get back on the 13th, so if I don't answer for a bit, you'll know why :)
Let's talk hats! August Millinery sent me this darling, handmade 40s/50s inspired silk topper. The details really are what make this lovely shine! The two rosettes on the right side add the perfect touch of femininity, while the gorgeous birdcage veil lends a dash of drama! It makes a statement, while remaining elegant enough to wear out and about.
