Outfit Details:
 Bow print 3/4 sleeve maxi dress: thrifted
Leather penny loafers: thrifted
brown belt: thrifted


A real quick post with a dress that's making its second appearance on this blog. I wore this out to run errands the other day and got two compliments from two different lady barristas so suffice to say I was feeling preeetttyyy good. It's funny, when I bought this dress I was really iffy about it but I think I love it more and more every time I wear it. Don't you just love when that happens?

 Anyway, tomorrow Grant and I are off to the Ace Hotel Palm Springs for a small birthday vacation. This also means I get to eat at Cheeky's!! One of my favorite Palm Springs restaurants (so excited). Anyway,  expect lots of dreamy desert photos to come.

  1. No wonder you got 2 compliments on it, it is quite awesome. 3/4 length dresses are a weird length on me, but your rocking it!

  3. You do look lovely! I know what you mean about being unsure about a garment. Last year I bought a white dress at a charity shop even though I never wear white, but it has become one of my favourite dresses to wear.

  10. This is a lovely dress. Your entire look reminds me of the 1930s for some reason. I think it is just the natural beauty you exude, along with the simple elegance of the dress itself...

  11. I remember this dress! I'm taking kind of a shine to your idyllic looking garden too, and you are looking the epitome of 1930s meets 70s chic with the dress and the hair!

  19. Happy early birthday! Sadly I never got to go to Palm Springs but would often go to Joshua Tree. Fun print on your dress; it's funny-- my most complimented vintage dresses are the ones I think are the oddest/most unusual, guess people are attracted to something that's different.

  20. It's such a beautiful dress, I love when a dress we aren't sure about became a favorite...I love too when that happens.
