I have been wanting to post about this dress since February. Finally Summer has hit Chicago and I had a chance to have Merl photograph it outside our studio. Its the softest, lightest, silkiest cotton ever. And the ruffles just kill me with cuteness. 
 My signature Summer do! I hate having to make the effort of doing my hair during the summer. I have naturally wavy hair and humidity is not a friend of mine. So this takes all of 5 min:)
 Outfit Details: 
1940s Ruffle Dress: Antique Expo
Butterfly 1950s Tapestry Bag: Rosebowl Flea 
1970s Sandals: Antique Mall
All Jewelry: Various Estates and Gifts

I hope you all had an amazing weekend!

I am so jealous of your summer.

I am so bad at braiding my own hair. Practice, practice, practice.

Wearing that 60s number to a wedding in a couple of weeks. Can't wait. Will post photos. xx
