It has been almost a month since I decided to take a blogging break. As you may have noticed, I didn’t schedule those seven posts I found that I’d never shared, and I’ll explain why in a moment! But first it would mean the world to me if you’d consider supporting my Patreon page. After a month of revising and revamping how I want to blog, I realized I also needed to revise a few things on Patreon, because my huge goals were far too much for me to supply no matter how much I wanted to! So, I’ve figured out what it is I CAN offer you in return for your support. It may not seem like a lot at the moment, but I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew. Thank you for your support, however it is given!
But now, on to this outfit!

The Vintage Belle
This post is sorely late in coming to you. Quite a while ago, my lovely friend Nicole messaged me to ask if I’d like her to make me a hat based on Beauty and the Beast. The new movie was just about to be released, and she was hoping I’d like to wear it to the theater when I saw the movie. Of course I said yes; what could be better than a vintage-inspired AND Beauty-and-the-Beast inspired hat?

As the weather changes, I have noticed my wardrobe preferences changing too. Throughout the colder months, I gravitate towards dresses; one-piece items that I can throw on over tights, under a coat, with a cardigan. Easy outfits, that don’t require a lot of thought to stay warm and look fashionable.
And then warm weather comes, and I start to want to wear my skirts and tops again. I itch for sleeveless, for open necklines, for flowing skirts. When I got this polka dot top from Lotty Dotty Vintage, it was a no-brainer to pair it with one of my favorite skirts (polka dots and pleats, what’s not to love?).

A Season of Gray
Lately, I have not been feeling myself. I don’t know if it’s the season (this muddy spring weather is not my favorite), the time of life (having two kids under three can be exhausting), or the weight gain (after Evie, I kept all of the baby weight and gained five more pounds), but these last few months my blog is taking the brunt of whatever this is.

Cooper of California
Last weekend, my best friend took me out for lunch and a vintage shopping adventure for my birthday. I always feel like I have to dress vintage to go to actual vintage boutiques, so I wore this gorgeous 1950’s day dress from A Petite Flower Vintage, my new favorite purse that belonged to my great-uncle’s aunt, and a bracelet that I think may be vintage.
After visiting one vintage store (whose items were incredibly reasonably priced — I got a perfect-condition 1950’s dress for $24, and my BFF bought me another for $28), we decided to go to a second one that had been recommended to Ashton by a friend who knows she loves vintage. Almost as soon as we walked in, the proprietor — an older woman who seemed to be more in love with the knowledge of her vintage items than the beauty of the garments themselves — eyed my purse and confidently said, “oh, that’s an Enid Collins purse.”
When I shook my head and told her that it wasn’t, she doubtfully eyed me, and then took the purse from my hands.
