Brooch: Made from a button
Hat & Shoes: Vintage, thrifted
I'm back after a brief time of going missing. Well, I didn't technically go missing, I actually made the 12 hour haul down to Hilton Head Island, SC for our family's yearly vacation and decided to unplug for the week to truly take in every moment of R&R that I possible could. Yep, it was exactly what this gal needed. I'll share more snaps from there later though...
As school is back in sesh...the Mr. and I decided to poke around our town's old abandoned school. It's sad and a little creepy but we kind of love to daydream that something special will dwell here again someday and that this old schoolhouse will be put to go use once again.
Speaking of old school...this is my first time in a wee while that I'm wearing a vintage dress (and how sweet is the print on this strawberry beaut?). Vintage is truly where my heart lies however having a nursing tot...and a very active one to boot in the home makes wearing vintage a bit impractical and quite difficult to don on a daily occasion. Not to mention, as vintage sizing runs much smaller than modern sizing, it's a challenge fitting into these dresses with a post pregnancy body. I'm pleased to say though that I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight (prior to my first pregnancy) - that which I think I only accomplished by eating healthier and being more active and now I can fit into my vintage dresses once again. Though I'm not one for talking about weight and size and all that jazz around here, it truly is great feeling more energetic and healthier overall. Hooray! Now that is something to jump for joy about...
Until next time my friends.
