Q's Pregnancy Style, 22 Weeks





Sweater, Gift
Tank top and belt, thrifted
1950's cotton skirt
Tights, who knows...
Boots, Fryes I've had for years

Hello! I'm so excited to be starting my pregnancy style series. Honestly up until very recently I didn't even feel like I looked pregnant. Just bloated, lol! Now I feel like it's obvious I'm pregnant, and that's a good feeling. I'm working my way through my 22nd week now. I've been feeling Hazel move several times during the day and it's just the best feeling ever. The second trimester is finally living up to it's feeling awesome reputation! :)
I hope y'all had a great weekend! The weather here in Nashville has been just lovely recently. I'll take a high near 60 degrees any day during February! xx

Jean Seberg, August 1958


I came across these two, new to me photographs of Jean Seberg and had to share. I love discovering new photographs of my favorite fashion icons! They were taken in 1958 in Jean's hometown, Marshalltown Iowa. If you're interested you can read a little more about the story here.

I hope you all had a marvelous weekend! The weather was lovely, so Jonny and I took Loretta for several walks. We also did some thrifting where I found so adorable baby clothes for little Hazel. Yay! I hope you have a happy Monday! xx

Inspirations Friday, Anna Karina








All photos found here

Lately I've been completely obsessed with Anna Karina's style. I know she's been a fashion icon for ages, but for some reason I've just recently discovered how fabulous she is. As I'm working on 
Q's Daydream Handmade's fall collection I find myself going to Anna and many other
French New Wave actresses for inspiration. It seems the French always get it right :)
Have a glorious weekend! xo

The Red Zebras






1950's Novelty Print Dress, Ebay a few years ago
Belt, Thrifted
Shoes, Mia

Hello! Did everyone have a nice weekend? I certainly did! I just happened to wear this dress through the entire weekend too. I couldn't help myself! You know when you have tons of dresses and that one feels just right, so you keep wearing it? I promise I'm not wearing it today though. It's soaking in the sink, so maybe I can wear it again tomorrow, hehe. Talk to you soon!

Inspiration Friday, Happy Birthday Natalie Wood!







Pic from here and here

I'm quite sure you've heard me say this before, but Natalie Wood has always been one of my favorite actresses. It started years and years ago when my Mom and I watched Splendor In the Grass. Now, one of my all time favorite movies. I most definitely have posted some of these pictures of Natalie before, but since it's her birthday it's a great reason to post them again! I stuck with Natalie in the 1950's for this post. Though, Natalie was aways fabulous! 
Happy Birthday Natalie!!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Inspiration Friday, The Million Dollar Mermaid






I've always had a soft spot for Esther Williams. Being a swimmer myself and often being called a mermaid when people see me in the water I feel as if we have a tiny bit in common. Watching her swim makes me almost as happy as I am when I'm in the water. And I LOVE being in the water! ;)
I hope you all have a glorious weekend! xo

Inspiration Friday, Lena Hoschek S/S 2013










This past Wednesday July 4th Lena Hoschek debuted her S/S 2013 Collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The theme was Mexico. I think the colors and prints are just perfectly Mexico! Not to mention the flower crowns. At first the painted faces threw me off, but then I realized how pretty they are and how perfect they were for Lena's theme. What do y'all think?
Lena will always be my modern day fashion hero. Love!

Have a glorious weekend! :)
