Sometimes I swear I was born in the wrong time. I imagine what it was like to be a part of 1920s Paris or 1940s in New York so often. I love vintage styles, music and movies so much! I can't tell you how often my radio is turned to 40s era music. Those influences really carry over into how I dress. This outfit being a prime example. The simple shirt dress is a classic shape and style that never really becomes dated. I picked this one up a few weeks ago and have worn it with everything from gladiator style sandals to these white pumps.
Adding hats to my closet has really been a shift for me over the past two years. I've talked a lot about them over the past few months in blog posts, but I like the feminine element of a bow or scarf like this one here. I also really like that it plays well against my adorable white purse and the pumps I chose for this outfit.
As Memorial Day weekend approaches, I can't help but get a little excited about the long weekend. I am going to be spending the weekend with some of my favorite people in the world, my family. My father was active duty in the army for 24 years and I'm so proud of the sacrifices he made to fight for our country. His bravery is an inspiration every day to me and I'm so thankful for the experiences the military brought to me as a child.
Although a great BBQ or cookout holds a dear place in my hear, Memorial Day is really about the people who fought for our freedom. Without soldiers dedicating their lives to give us the freedom we are so lucky to have, America truly would be a different place. Hope you all have a safe and fun weekend!
