Good morning, friends! What more can I say than I’m absolutely head over heels in love with this dress. The light pink color along with the charming novelty print made up of birdcages, pinned butterflies, and postage stamps adds to the pin-up perfection. The shirt dress with a darted bodice, belt, notched collar, and darling cap sleeves all lend to the flare of the 1950s. Did I mention it has pockets too?! Simply swooning. The fit is true to size. How cute are these pearl clips!! Pearl clips are a huge trend right now, really any hair accessory, and with good reason. They have a vintage sophistication, add some charm, and the practicality of keeping your hair out of your face. I’m all about that. The set I have comes with ten pieces (two of each style) for under $13. They’re perfect for various hair styles (pinning hair back on one side, pinning back both sides, using a clip to pin a chignon…the list goes on), matching with you mini me, or using double clips on one side. Ava was so excited to wear one of the clips so we would match! I love these photos with her and I as well. She really is the sweetest! She always kisses me whenever we take photos together and I was able to capture some of those moments above.

Good morning, everyone! When I first saw this blue polka dot dress, I thought of Lucille Ball in I Love Lucy. From there on out, I was completely sold! Reminiscent of the 1950s, this dress has cute cap sleeves and a self tie bow at the waist. It hits just above my knee and has a slight stretch to it making the fit very comfortable.

Good morning, friends! With the Easter holiday right around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to show the outfits we’ll be wearing this year. Ava actually picked hers out before I got mine. She loves anything mint colored right now so it was no surprise when she choose her mint floral dress. She looks absolutely darling so ready for spring! I even recently put a mint cover on my phone, which Ava insisted we use during the photos. Anything mint lol! I’ve always loved matching with Ava, just as my mom had done with me, and couldn’t resist this mint floral embroidery dress with its whimsical retro feel. Everything about it reminds me of a romantic spring dream. It fits true to size. I’m wearing a size small.

Sail To Sable Coat c/o || Gingham Dress c/o || Wedge Espadrilles || Straw Hat || Straw Bag c/o || 

Happy Friday, friends! White tweed, big gold buttons, and a knee length cut make this coat from Sail To Sable elegant in every single way. It’s been my go-to this season for the transition into warmer spring weather. I’m completely over winter and also strongly hoping we do not get any more snow storms. Fingers crossed! I’ve been starting to store away my winter outterwear and looking for a coat for the cooler spring days. This tweed one has a fresh feel with a light lining to keep me warm until we hit those 70 degree days. It also features a stand up collar and a fit and flare silhouette. I paired the coat with a fun gingham dress and yellow wedge espadrilles

There’s nothing dreamier to me than a gorgeous sunset with soft beautiful light filtering through. Add some floral blooms and you have one enchanting evening. This was a look I put together for one of the warmer days we had and I might add, one of my favorite looks to date. The sunshine absolutely enlivened my senses and brought a sense of happiness along with the promise of spring soon to come. Along with the weather, this dress put the biggest smile on my face. It’s pretty pleats and darling bow  neck tie add to its feminine beauty. Not to mention the stunning print! Right after shooting these photos, I went to a local church dinner with my dad and received so many lovely compliments on the dress. It was a wonderful evening filled with good food, good company, and an ensemble that has so much springtime charm.

Silver Dress c/o || Similar Red Heels || Similar Clutch || Similar Pearl Hair Comb || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o ||  

Good morning, everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Mine was filled with antiquing, getting some fresh air, catching up on some work, attending a church dinner, and also starting Schitt’s Creek on Netflix. A few people have recommended the show to me and let me tell you, it is hilarious! I’m not kidding. I could not stop watching it. It’s definitely binge worthy and will have you laughing the entire way through. 

My fashion roots, heart, and soul have always been with vintage inspired looks. While the 1950s have always been my favorite time period, I also have quite a soft spot for the 1940s and 1960s too. This particular look nods to the 40s with its silky silver fabric, A-line skirt, knee length cut, soft waves, and of course a red lip with some pearl accents. Actresses like Lana Turner, Lauren Bacall, Rita Hayworth, Ingrid Bergman, Veronica Lake, and Gene Tierney come to mind. I also must give credit where credit is due. Ava is the one who chose the red shoes for this outfit. She actually helps me pick out some accessories for quite a bit of my looks! We had just watched The Wizard Of Oz the night before so Dorothy’s ruby red slippers were front and center on both of our minds.

Happy Wednesday, friends! I have to say, I am quite enamored with this dress and embellished coat from Julie Brown NYC. Both pieces provide effortless elegance and a classic sophistication. The sleeveless dress is made with a heavy quality fabric and it has pockets! The coat has three dazzling embellishments that look like broaches and stand out beautifully agsinst the navy background. My jaw dropped open when I saw the coat! The embellishments over the buttons make this coat stand out from the rest. Don’t put all of your summer accessories away just yet either! While mint may be thought of more so in the spring, it worked perfectly for this fall ensemble. I truly felt like Jackie Kennedy while wearing these pieces. They are absolutely breathtaking together!

This dress!! Swoon. Is there anything better than ice cream in summer? I think not, haha.  This dress embodies everything fun and sweet that ice cream has to offer. How about the vintage flair too?! I always gravitate towards items that remind me of the 1940s-1960s. Especially the 1950s. I wanted this outfit to have a dash of whimsy, a spoonful of bright color, and a healing cup of cheeriness. We had ice cream the night before at Katie’s Homemade Ice Cream (delish!!) and I instantly fell in love with the location. I knew it would make the perfect backdrop for the dress. The dress fits perfectly (wearing a size small) though I wish the skirt portion had some more flair to it.

The vintage vibes are strong with this one! I cannot resist anything that has a little vintage flair to it, this dress included. I especially love that a belt was included and the cute ruffles. This would make a great dress to transition into fall with as well. The color is more of a muted mustard yellow, which is perfect during the fall months. I actually got a lot of compliments on this dress while we were at the Mashpee Commons. It was a hit! If you’re visiting Cape Cod, definitely check it out. It’s a very charming outdoor shopping center that looks like a little town. This is also where we spotted Cape Cod Coffee for the first time. They also have a location in Hyannis. I would recommend the cranberry flavor as well as their lattee’s. I went back for seconds! The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a small for reference.

Good morning and happy Thursday, friends! When I originally saw this dress my eyes bugged out at the beautiful bright yellow sunflower print against the dark navy background. Yellow and navy make for such an eye popping color combination! Not only did the print catch my eye, but the vintage feel and bow-tie waist are just too gorgeous to pass up. I went with matching colors with my navy peacoat and mustard top handle bag. Adding some gold sparkly heels gave the look an extra special feel!
