A Dose of Nostalgia

There is a nagging voice in my head that keeps saying I should have named this post- In the Squash Fields... yeah, no- I am totally kidding- haha! But in all reality, we stumbled upon this little squash field while location hunting this week. I saw this sign and thought- yup, this is the place! The squash were of an unidentifiable nature- too round and tubby to be zucchinis. Any ideas? There's a picture near the end of this post- make your best guess!

Miss Sydney of Sydney's Vintage sent this lovely dress to me as a gift. She picked it out herself, and I must say, she managed to match my taste perfectly! I wanted to snap some pictures in it, to say thank you <3

Right there!! ^^^ Any ideas as to the mysterious squash caper? My curiosity is growing... rapidly ;-p

What an adorable location! And I really think that those squashes are zucchini! They have the stripes and everything!

Oh, and you are absolutely stunning per usual ;) GORGEOUS photos <3

Oh, I love all the bright colors here and how the jean jacket keeps things clean and classic and not overwhelming.

I love everything about this post and what a treasure Sydney sent you! The print on that dress is so lovely and you titled the post perfectly. Made me wish I could take a walk in that squash field myself!

Gorgeous photos, location, and styling, Alex!
Those might be unripe butternut squash. They usually come out in the Fall around here so perhaps they just aren't quite ready yet :) Just a guess!

Cute look! I need a good denim jacket to pair with dresses. Haha I don't know what type of vegetable that is, but the pictures are cute! XD

I love this! That dress is gorgeous on you and the denim jacket is the kind I'd like--not too loose, but not too tight either--the one I have now is a little long to be as loose as it is! :) I like those wedges too.

Looks like a marrow maybe?
Great dress too, the photos show it off so well.

Such a beautiful dress--I adore the print! It's so colorful. Also, I love the lighting and the overall mood of these photos. So quintessentially summery!

Love your dress in this! I am currently trying to wear some more bright colours. Hopefully I will be posting so colourful out fit posts soon!

Ah, love the pop of color in the green field! The sunset is gorgeous (you certainly found another perfect spot!) and you only add to the beauty. =) I adore your hair, the little twist up works well for you. And the jean jacket is the perfect last touch! You wear them so well, I can't wear them in my opinion.. they don't look the best. =D

Also, I'm pretty darn sure that's zucchini. My mom grows them in her garden and they look just like that - big and chubby. =) I think most people are simply used to seeing the small, skinny ones from the grocery store. :P

You look wonderful Alexandra! So glad you like the dress!
Perfectly beautiful! Love, Syd

Hi Alex,
I would love it if you did a 40's makeup tutorial.
