Outfit Post: Milkmaid

On Saturday I turned 30.  I'm still not really sure how I feel about it.  I keep joking about how "old" I am, but really, I know it's not all that old. --insert the old adage about how "age is just a number" here--

This outfit was meant to be worn to a wine tasting and birthday dinner with friends, but in full disclosure, I ended up doing a quick change right before I left because I felt a little overdressed.  I figured it was still worth posting the photos here because this 50's sundress is currently for sale in the shop!  I don't think people can get a full grasp for how amazing it is, just seeing it on the dress form.

1950's plaid sundress: Miskabelle, crossbody purse: vintage, 
shoes: BCBG, necklace: gift from Amanda

It has pockets!! 

Lyla is always insistent on getting in on the photo-action.  And she definitely brings
 out my best smile, so I am happy to oblige.

I am usually unsure how I feel about myself in milkmaid braids, but on this day I was digging it.  You would think it would be a little "too much" with this dress, but somehow it worked...I think.

Hope you all had a great weekend!  Look for Amanda's post this week about her experience at the very first DC Flea event!



  1. This dress is beautiful, but two inches too small in the waist for me. Poopies. Looks great on you though! Your braids do look lovely so I don't know how you don't wear them more often in this way!

    1. Thank you Victoria! I'm not gonna lie...that zipper was really struggling to go up the whole way on me! Otherwise I would be keeping it for myself. ; )
