The color and floral details on this dress always make me feel like I should be going to a garden party, so I figured the perfect place to go for pictures was the Henry Ford Estate. The Henry Ford Estate was the home of Clara and Henry Ford from 1915 to 1950 and has the most beautiful grounds, especially the flower gardens. As an angsty teenager I would often go and walk the grounds to contemplate whatever drama was going on in my life. There are so many pretty, quiet places to go sit and think or read a book. This past Friday evening we finally had a break in the rainy weather and Aaron and I decided to go walk around and snap some pictures. No angst involved on this visit ;).

I bought this dress from JCPenny a few years ago and I still love it as much as the day I bought it. Who knew I would find such a cute vintage looking dress at JCPenny?! Just goes to show that you never know where your next great fashion find will come from. You definitely need to keep and open mind and be willing to look anywhere. Although, I do think that JCPenny has really stepped up it’s game in the last few years. This dress doesn’t need a lot of accessories, it has a lot going on all on it’s own. I just added some cute hand made earrings, a simple necklace and my trusty clogs.

How about you, have you ever found great clothes in unlikely places? I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!

Truly,

Tamara

    The color of this dress just pops!
    And the earrings… you have such an eye for detail. Did someone make them?
    The picture by the fountain is beautiful too. I will have to get to Henry Ford for some pics myself and to visit you! Glad you’re not angsty anymore:) but I sure could use some solitude and moody places to visit.

      Thanks, Joy! Yes, my friend Heather made them. She makes such beautiful jewelry!
