lakeside



A successful non-computer getaway was had! Our last minute trip to Lake Michigan was wonderful and I feel pretty refreshed. Oh, and I the day we left the perfect 1950s capri pants landed on my doorstep, excellent timing. I went on faith and brought them with me not knowing if they fit, and lo and behold the fit to a T! On top of everything I finally found a vintage dress form, in a pole barn in the middle of nowhere no less!

white cotton tunic  - JCrew, about 7 years ago, at least
navy blue cotton twill capri pants - Ballyhoo Vintage
sandals -  thrifted
hat - thrifted
gold Victorian hair locket - eBay

You look like a 1950's movie star on vacation. This is such a great laid back look. I'm glad you're recharged. I myself get a little vacation next week and I couldn't be more exited!
