1940's Sundress & Swedish Hasbeens

Sunglasses, Asos
Shoes, Swedish Hasbeens via Amazon

Yesterday, the temperature reached 108. The a perfect day to wear my new 1940's sundress! Everything I'm wearing here is a birthday present. The dress I bought with the birthday money from my Dad, and the sunglasses and shoes are from Jonny. Can I just say how much I love Swedish Hasbeens! They're so comfy!
Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Jonny and I might go see Moonrise Kingdom!

Inspiration Friday, Summertime the 1940's Way

All photos and their sources can be found here

I've said this before and I'll say it again. Summer is my favorite! I don't even care that it's going to be 107 degrees here in Nashville today. It's better that 7 degrees! I've also said before that in the summertime the 1940's is my biggest source for fashion inspiration. Bring on the playsuits and cute two piece sets! ;)
I hope you all have a glorious weekend! xx

My Birthday Dress & Loretta

 This past Tuesday (the 19th) was my 27th birthday. I must say it was one of the loveliest birthdays I've had in awhile. I spent the morning getting my hair trimmed.. pampering is always good on your birthday! Then went out to lunch with Bonnie (my 83 yr old buddy). Later on it was out to dinner with Jonny. We went to our favorite restaurant and sat outside to enjoy the summer evening. Once home we spent some time in our much loved backyard, playing with Loretta and catching fireflies. 

My birthday dress, worn here, is from my Mama. Isn't it a dream!?

 See how happy I am when twirling in the perfect dress! :)
Now on to some Loretta love...

1950's dress, Lotus Vintage

Hasn't she's gotten so big!?

I hope y'all had a lovely weekend! One of the highlights for me was seeing 
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Honestly, I just went to see the movie because I'm crazy about Steve Carell and Keira Knightley has always been one of my favorites. I wasn't expecting much but a few good laughs.. but I left being so impressed and in love with the film! Jonny and I both decided it's one of our favorite movies ever. I HIGHLY recommend seeing it!
Talk to you soon! xo

Inspiration Friday, Michelle Williams, Take This Waltz

Screen caps by me

The other day I watched Michelle Williams in Take This Waltz. I fell absolutely in love with the film and Michelle's wardrobe. The movie isn't even going to released in theaters until June 29th... (I rented the pre theatrical release on Amazon) but I highly recommend seeing it if you get a chance! Not just for the pretty dresses, but also it's interesting coming of age story.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Gemini Girl

Vintage Dress, late 50's early 60's Jonathan Logan
Belt, Thrifted
Shoes, F21
Vintage box bag, Enid Collins, a gift

Hello! I hope everyone has had a nice weekend!
Yesterday, Emma and I spent the afternoon cruising around. We stopped by the Porter Flea, which was fun, but crazy crowded. In the crowd I managed to spot Mike Wolfe from American Pickers standing right next to me, so that was cool! I would of said hi if he wasn't being ambushed by lots of other people, haha. Later Emma and I had lunch at the Silly Goose. My favorite restaurant in Nashville! Then we stopped at a couple of vintage shops and did some browsing. We both walked away with a new bakelite bangle to add to our collections. Today, Jonny and I have been having a good ole lazy Sunday. He's been very busy at work, so it's nice to have him home :)

The dress I'm wearing is something I found a couple weeks ago for a song.... It was stained and dirty, but I discovered it was a Jonathan Logan and I had to have it! Turns out after a good soaking it's as good as new! Now it's one of my favorite dresses.

Talk to y'all soon!

Graceful Celebration

I just wanted to stop in and share with you a little newspaper clipping from today's Memphis paper. Yesterday Emma, Cassie and I took a day trip to Memphis to visit with friends and take a tour of Graceland. As we were leaving Graceland we got our picture taken for the Memphis newspaper! I of course find it pretty amazing to be in the newspaper in front of Elvis' house! So, I had to share it with you ;)
The entire day was truly wonderful. Emma and Cassie are the bestest!
More pictures of our day sometime soon.
I hope y'all are well!!! Have a great weekend!
