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
