blue roses

Just got back from a great trip to my stepmother’s cabin.  It went by way too fast, but I have plenty of photos to post so be warned–you’ll probably be seeing a week’s worth of cabin posts from me.  This is a dress I’ve been wearing like crazy.  A 1950s cotton dress that is so comfortable, so easy that it’s become my go-to traveling dress.  The print is the prize on this one with blue roses on a dark green background.






50s dress: Sacramento Antique Fair
sandals: Payless (last year)
vintage blue scarf: estate sale
belt: thrifted
