Outfits: Rain or Shine

Outfit Details:
Scarf, Purse & Brooch: Vintage, thrifted
Shoes: Poetic License via Amazon.com

Oh hello there, 

I'm back again with another doll of dress from Mata Traders - a fair trade company I can't say enough good about these days.  This time I'm mixing up the Rain or Shine Dress - and how could I not just go gaga over this little yellow umbrella covered gem?  The silhouette is pretty different for me as I tend to cling onto fit and flare a-lines or babydolls.  However, I couldn't help but be compelled to give something a tad more fitted a try - and you know what, I loved it!  It had me feeling slightly Joan-esque - that I can't complain about.  This first remix of the piece had me adding accessories of hues that were side by side on the color wheel.  Yellow umbrellas - green shoes - blue brooch & bag...see what I mean?  

Anyhow, this afternoon was spent out thrifting to our hearts' content, getting a mani/pedi and grabbing some pastry and coffee - because an afternoon out and about sans the kiddos is never complete without a little caffeine and something sweet.  How about you...what does your perfect summer day look like?

Until next time darlings...love bunches, 


  1. Super cute! Love the oversized bow on your head!


  2. You two nail your photo-shoots every time! As always, these are gorgeous. The dress is great and I love the green worn with the blue. Also, your description of a perfect summer day sounds quite excellent. xo

  3. What a gorgeous place and gorgeous photos. And yes, that is a fun print!

  4. You are truly the queen of the head wraps! You always do great things with them. Also, your dress is fantastic, from the flattering cut to the yellow umbrellas.

    Your day out sounds absolutely lovely. My perfect summer day would have to include the boardwalk, a little shopping, and crab cakes :)

  5. Wow love those green boots added to the look, the color contrast you have going on are superb and the oversize headband is the super darling to finished the look. Always love the photos! the house looking real peaceful and loving:). Sounds like you had a fun date with your family:).
