Four Winds

Whenever I'm feeling blue, turning on Bright Eyes always helps. I feel alive and okay even if it's only for a moment. Summer is slowly giving way and I'm tuning in to some nostalgic feelings. It's so hard to even be outside in this overbearing heat without getting drenched in sweat... but I somehow managed to dawn this 1950's dress my friend Rissy gifted to me a couple of months ago. She knows me too well :) Thanks so much, Rissy!
Thanks so much to my friend Marie from MarjaLovely for sending me this bow! It's made with love and it's my absolute favorite color!
outfit details: vintage 1980's pink booties: Avalon Exchange in St. Louis
1950's yellow embroidered dress: gift from Rissy
Purse: My Great Grandma Frisina's
hand made yellow ochre bow: c/o Marjalovely
1950's beaded collar: Lisa's Antique Mall

Bright Eyes are the best! I love the last photo with you spinning, when I wear 50s dresses that's all I ever want to do . :)

That's such a pretty dress - I love the delicate color. And I'm a big Bright Eyes fan as well.

The dress and the bow are both amazing, what nice friends you have! I totally melted in the dress I wore most recently too. The heat makes me want to drink iced coffee and be really really lazy inside.

I wore shorts today and I still melted! This summer is definitely a hot one. That dress is so perfect on you! Being adorable yourself helps for sure ;)
