I had so much to do this weekend, but unfortunately I was sick on Friday night and all day Saturday. Thank goodness I was feeling a little better on Sunday, so that I could get a few things accomplished. I’m still so behind though and I’m sure I will be playing catch up all week. At least I got to have a little fun on Sunday afternoon. Aaron and I went to a local art fair in one of my favorite cities, Plymouth. It has such a quaint small town feel that I love and we really hope to call it home one day (fingers crossed). We just walked around a little and went to lunch, it was nice to get out after being in bed for almost two days. On Sunday evening we finally got around to taking some outfit photos at a local bed and breakfast owned by some friends of Aaron’s. It has a beautiful backyard that I thought would make a perfect backdrop.

I bought this yellow floral midi dress from Ruche, one of my absolute favorite online stores. They have so many cute vintage inspired pieces and this dress is no exception. I love the vintage looking print, the back details and the ladylike length. I layered it with a white tube top underneath to make it a little more wearable for everyday, but the open back would be beautiful for a fancier occasion. You could definitely dress it up or down depending on how you accessorize.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and got a lot more accomplished than I did. Here’s to a new and healthy week! ;)

Truly,

Tamara

For the Love of Peter Pan Collars

Oh how I love a Peter Pan collar! I was definitely born in the wrong era when it comes to fashion. I always gravitate towards mid-century style, a time when fashion icons like Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn reigned supreme. Even though the style dates back to the early 1900’s, it was at it’s peek in the 50’s and 60’s. We have been seeing a definite resurgence again in the last couple of years and I could not be more smitten. I would wear one everyday if I could! Ok, maybe not everyday, but you get the point, I’m kind of obsessed. Just take a look at my Style Inspiration board on Pinterest. I also love mixing era’s and I really love the combination of this 90’s style baby doll dress with the Peter Pan collared blouse. I look forward to finding more ways to style this versatile piece.

Aaron and I went to a local park again to take these photos and we forgot something very important…….BUG SPRAY!!! We went later in the evening in an effort to have the best lighting, but didn’t take the mosquito situation into account. Normally we take a ton of pictures (and I do mean a ton), but this time we snapped as many as we could in a super short amount of time and got out of there as fast as we could. This left me with a much smaller amount of usable pictures (most of the pictures were of me warding off mosquitos) to choose from, but it definitely helped me to hone my editing skills ;) . We certainly won’t be making that mistake again!

I can’t believe that the 4th of July has already come and gone! I don’t know about you guys, but I always feel like after the 4th is over the rest of the summer just flies by. I sure hope that’s not the case this year and I plan on savoring ever last drop of summer. I had a very low key 4th of July weekend. We had dinner with family, rearranged the house a little and relaxed a lot. I hope you all had a lovely weekend too!

Truly,

Tamara
