I always feel, when it has been a long time since an outfit post, that I should come up with something spectacular for it when I do finally post one. Then I put it off and off because I'm not in the mood to dress up that day, or it's raining, too windy, or I just don't feel quite right in the kind of outfit I had hoped to post next. After that it's just awkward.
I've been living on the edge and rocking a frizzy-curled side pony for the past few days. Things were starting to feel a little too horsey with a centered one day after day.
I got this little jacket in an antique store while on vacation last summer (along with a dress I have yet to alter so it will fit). It must have had a matching dress that has long since gone missing. I probably wouldn't have ever worn them together anyway, but in my imagination it's the most perfect dress of all time. I missed most of the flowering trees this spring, staying inside from pollen-colds and heartbreak, but dresses and things with blooms will do for the next best thing.
Dress: H&M circa 2011, Jacket: Vintage, Bag: Vintage, Shoes: Anthropologie 2010ish, Pin: Vintage, Glasses: Random gift shop
I'm still on a mission to find a vintage version of this dress. Several perfect ones have popped up on etsy recently, but most of them are just tip-toeing out of my price range. this one is just fine for the moment, although the lining keeps doing this weird thing where it decides it is a good idea to be longer than the lace. Someday I'll hem it a bit so this problem is alleviated, but you've seen my mending pile so who knows when that fix will happen.
