Retro Summer Blog Party Outfit!


   Hello all! How are you today? I'm happy because it's raining - a long while has passed since I've heard the beautiful sound of raindrops hitting the pavement. I'm also pleased that my summer outfit photos were done long before the rain started! ;)




   This blog party look is inspired by what is in my opinion the most summery of retro eras, the 1950's! To begin with, a button-up blouse and full midi skirt made the foundation of the outfit and copied the era's style. A little scarf tied under my collar added interest as well as a Roman Holiday flair. Lace-up wedges proved to be just the right shoes for a 50's summer look. Influenced by retro times, my pony-tail, glasses, and makeup all pulled together this summertime look.

Outfit Details: Top ~ Consignment or Thrift Store; Skirt ~ Yard Sale; Scarf ~ Consignment or Thrift Store; Shoes ~ Consignment or Thrift Store (ribbon added by Mom); Glasses ~ c/o Firmoo


   While wearing this outfit I had pleasure of being a landing zone for a beautiful butterfly! It must have thought that my floral skirt was a pretty flower garden. Dad grabbed his phone and took a couple of pictures while the breeze lazily blew my skirt and the stylish bug. Pretty cool, no?

    2. I haven't gotten the opportunity to watch the entire movie, but from what I've seen I rather love it. :-)
      By the way, I'm really hoping to join your contest, however I haven't had anyone to take any photos for me, so hopefully I can figure something out here soon!

    Oh, and by the way...if you want some rain you are welcome to most of mine. I always get excited on the rare day that I can actually see the sun!
