Threadbare Elegance

Dress: Vintage
Ring: Hand-Me-Down from Mom
Earrings: Forever 21
Purse: Thrifted
Hat: Thrifted

After our daughter was born, I decided to continue working part-time. Its great for so many reasons, namely because I really love my job, but also because it gives me a chance to get out of the house by myself and interact with other people independent of my husband and daughter. I work a few evenings a week and every other weekend and Saturday I was off to the library again for the day, hat in hand for a walk during my lunch break. 

I love this dress. Its so feminine and floaty, pretty without being precious and easy to wear. I also really love that the color pattern is so autumnal even though the fabric is filmy and obviously meant for summer. Its getting a little delicate around the seams, but that only makes me love it even more for giving the dress a threadbare elegance that it wouldn't have had when it was brand new. I'm not really sure if the shoes go with it, but I really wanted to wear them. Yellow is such a happy color!

This is my idea of the perfect summer outfit: vintage dress, colorful clogs, basket purse, a hat and a few pieces of hand-me-down jewelry. I'm so happy its summer.
