    Summer Plaid || Emily and Fin

      It’s probably the biggest cliche in the book that a blogger loves fall, but for once I won’t fight the cliche. I love fall, and I’m so very ready to have cool weather and crisp leaves, pumpkin patches, costume parties, fall colors, and fun layers! But while we are still in the middle of summer more or less, I will settle for wearing this BEAUTIFUL Emily and Fin skirt whose colors are the perfect bridge between summer brights and fall jewel tones.

    Sundae Funday || Bernie Dexter Ice Cream Sundae Dress

    One thing I am learning in regards to blogging now that I have three kids is: be flexible. Yesterday was my first real grocery shopping trip since having Irene. Of course, I’ve been to the store in the weeks since her birth, but none of those trips were for a full week of food and necessities. I meal planned, loaded all three kids into the car, and, since my mom was going to watch the two older kids, grabbed the camera and tripod with hopes that maybe I could squeeze in a photoshoot while I was out.

    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)
