    Longing for Fall || feat Donna London Vintage

      As we wait for our  move-in date to finalize, Washington weather is beginning to slowly turn into fall, and I am so looking forward to everything autumnal! This dress from Donna London Vintage immediately sparked a vision of orange tones and crispy leaves and pumpkin-hunting. So I threw on my favorite straw hat, a cozy orange blanket scarf, and found the most fall location I could. Which, to be honest, wasn’t very fall till I got into editing and a little color tweaking made a huge difference! We have some fall leaves, but nearly everything is green here still and the weather is pleasantly warm at 65 degrees Fahrenheit.…

    Sunlight in the Apple Trees || Feat Lindy Bop

    This post features a gifted dress from Lindy Bop that I chose. All opinions are my own! This lovely Lindy Bop dress is the perfect frock for that wonderful in-between weather when summer begins to slowly merge into fall. When the leaves are just edged with yellow, and the apples have begun to ripen, and the morning air is cool before the heat of the afternoons. With its pretty highland theme in the check print featuring a sweet blue floral bouquet mixed in, it’s the perfect dusty shade of blue with the right amount of browns and greens for the changing of seasons. I was so excited when they contacted…

    A Vintage Picnic

    I know all I do is talk about waiting for our house but oh my word I thought the last weeks of  pregnancy were torture. Waiting to close on a home that you’re excited about takes about the same amount of time as the last weeks of pregnancy I swear. It’s like a full year packed into seven days. As I write we are currently six days away from the proposed closing date (edit: the closing date has to be moved into August and is now undetermined since they’d need to turn in paperwork TODAY to close by the 31st), and there are still a few little details that need to…

    The Vintage Garden || My Happy Place

    My second modern-to-vintage outfit goes quite well with the theme of today’s youtube video, so I thought I’d share that look while I talk about growing a garden this year! I get quite a few questions about gardening every time I share an instastory while I’m out there. Now, I’m not really a seasoned gardener at all. In fact, this year is only the second year I’ve attempted to garden. The first year I got some carrots and maybe 2 tomatoes, but that was about it. However, I know a few things I could have changed, and I also know that what we did this year vastly helped, so I’ll…

    My modern basics for vintage style

    For the longest time, my closet didn’t have basics. I would happen upon “closet must have” lists, and nothing really appealed to me. Black slacks? A blazer? A white button up blouse? Not my style. Even things as classic as a Little Black Dress didn’t seem appropriate for me, my closet, and my lifestyle. And then recently I watched a video from The Closet Historian on her closet basics, and something clicked inside my head. For a vintage-loving gal, basics don’t have to be your usual 9-to-5 office wear. As a stay at home mom, basics are so much different. So this weekend I filmed a video of five looks, all…
