    Lady (V London) in Yellow || A Dress Review

    I know I have not yet properly introduced Irene here on the blog, but if you follow me on any social media you will have seen her in abundance by now! And I am saving her newborn photos for her birth story, which I’ve yet to get started writing out. In place of that, hello! I have been itching to get out and start photographing outfits again, and this gorgeous Lady V London Elsie dress seemed like the perfect way to return to blogging.  Elsie Dress, Lady V London (or similar here) | Shoes, Amazon | hat, vintage (similar) | Picnic Portrait brooch, Erstwilder

    A Vintage Pregnancy || Button, Button

    As you may have seen on Instagram and YouTube, our little Irene made an appearance on June 23, and we are all doing very, very well. So well, in fact, that I may have already snapped a few photos for my first blog post “back” from taking a little bit of maternity leave. But before I come back from that, I have to share this darling dress made by Button Button (who also made me this beautiful lipstick dress) from a vintage pattern and a vintage sheet.

    Tabitha the Tapir and Me

    It’s my last little collaborative post with Erstwilder, although you’ll definitely be seeing me sport these brooches a lot this summer. To end this three-post series, I’m styling the cutest little Tapir named Tabitha. With her delicate pink bow and pearls, and a touch of rainbow in her white belly, Tabitha is sweet and girly and exactly the kind of piece I love adding to an ultra-feminine outfit.    Brooch, c/o Erstwilder | Top thrifted (similar) | Skirt, Lindy Bop (similar) | Shoes, Amazon | headscarf, vintage (similar) | Earrings, vintage (similar)

    Husband and Wife Style || Theodore the Tamarin

    Welcome to a somewhat late installment of the next little Erstwilder brooch I got to choose: Theodore the Tamarin! With his colorful purple body and dapper top hat and monocle, Theodore struck me as a fellow with just the right amount of whimsy and class for not only myself to style… but also my husband! As soon as I saw Theo, I knew that I wanted to get my husband involved. Men just don’t get to style as many fun accessories in my opinion (see: my entire drawer set full of jewelry versus his one lonely cup of cufflinks) and when he saw Theodore he was completely on board as…

    The Tropical Harbor || Pink Blush

    When I chose this beautiful tropical print Pink Blush hi-lo maternity dress, I was expecting that I would still have 4-6 weeks of pregnancy left. I ordered it at 36 weeks and some days pregnant, and I had it set in my mind that this baby would be like my other babies and come a week or two late. I speculated that I still had a month or so to get ready for this baby fully — to purchase things like newborn diapers, white onesies, little pants, and whatever else I discovered we lack for a newborn at this point. I am a last-minute person, so most of my preparation…
