We had a rare under 90 degree day in Memphis so I spent the day in one of my favorite vintage dresses usually reserved for fall. I usually stay as far away from my polyester vintage as possible during the summer, but this one is so breathable and so darn cute, I pulled it out.
So many things about this dress make it my favorite. The color, the accordion skirt, the button up top, and hello!! I could match it to one of my pairs of spectacles! I purchased it from one of my favorite Instagram shops, Shop Maeberry! Instagram shopping will be the end of me! It has replaced Etsy for my go to vintage shopping.
I bought this dress a couple of months ago, but haven’t worn it until today. It’s from the Victoria Beckham collection at my fave, Target. I loved the silhouette and the mod-ish look so I had to have it (and two others from her collection).
I paired it with black and white bangles and my new bag. A black straw circular purse that I picked up while thrifting in Little Rock, Arkansas last weekend. I’m a sucker for straw/wicker bags and I was happy to add this unique one to my collection.
I love wearing dark colors. The majority of my wardrobe is black and I’ve been challenging myself to wear and buy clothing with more color and patterns. But, gah! It’s so hard. I made an exception and bought this little tank dress from Old Navy when they were having a $10 dress sale(I can’t resist those). It spoke to me because it’s short, sleeveless, and blousy! Perfect for this Memphis heat! I purchased the dress with the promise that I would wear it with something that popped! And so, I did. I’m really into the current kimono trend. They’re perfect statement pieces for the summer. It can change a little simple black shift dress into something more. I was drawn to this one, because of the vibrant, bold floral design and the fringe on the hem. Cute, right? I also added this white Fish bone necklace from Tatty Devine! It really stands out against my all black ensemble. How do you jazz up your simple dresses?
I’ve been dreaming of the perfect gingham dress for summer and I’ve finally found it!
I picked this blue and white gingham dress up from Target and I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s 100% cotton, so comfortable and breezy! The skirt is very full giving it a fun vintage inspired look. The dress is available in a small up to XXL!
Are you on board with the gingham trend? I can’t get enough!
