Outfit || August in Retro


   Do you ever have one of those rare, precious bursts of inspiration in which a clear idea suddenly comes to you? Well, that's how the outfit I'm sharing today came together! After having it planned out for a few days, I wore it to church on Sunday. That sunny afternoon ended up being perfect for a photo shoot in the local garden! Mom and I met one of my co-workers and her dachshund there, and we enjoyed getting in some outfit photos and dog photography!



   This outfit is really just a simple matter of creative layering. I started by layering a chambray top over a 1950's style summer dress - a folded and tied chambray shirt is an easy way to add style to an outfit. Next, a string of pearls and a perky ponytail helped the look to achieve its retro flair. Brown ballet flats kept my feet casual and comfortable. Altogether, it was a fun summer look both cute and uncomplicated.

Outfit Details: Dress ~ Consignment? Shirt ~ Consignment or Thrift; Necklace ~ Gift; Flats ~ Target

  4. Very cute outfit! I really like how you pulled the blue out of your dress pattern with the chambray shirt. Your pearls add a nice feminine touch. What beautiful photos of you in the garden, pretty background. Yes, your hair totally finishes your style with a smile. I do hope you share your Dachshund photography with us sometime. Enjoy the rest of your week! Stephanie
