There is a special kind of day that makes me feel like I've stepped back in time. Sometimes, a lazy golden summer day seems to transport me to a sunshiny afternoon in the 1950's. Summer in general has a nostalgic feeling about it, reminding me of summers past and childhood memories. At the same time, I blaze trails through new sunshiny afternoons, creating memories to look back on in the years to come.
This new dress of mine already holds a few memories. I bought it on a vacation last month with my parents and best friend. I remember trying it and the cardigan on in a consignment store dressing room with vintage tunes playing in the background. Perhaps the music helped along my impression the kind that a lady might wear in a summer of the 1950's or 60's.
In fact, this dress's retro appeal was one of the selling points for me. Its feminine shape, dainty floral print, and bit of tulle peeking out from the hemline has just the sort of ladylike look I enjoy. The only thing I don't like about it is that the top of it is definitely beyond my standards for modesty. Coming to the rescue is a cardigan that matches the dress for utter cuteness, with its rows of ruffles and perfect length. I have already worn the dress and cardigan together twice, once for an outdoor birthday party and once for a wedding. I think they are a pair I will be calling on again and again!

Do you ever feel like a certain time of year or weather takes you back in time?
Do you like to go shopping when you're on vacation?
"Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the
upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
I recommend reading this passage :) :
