Bowling Green

Dress- 1950s Vintage via Lady a la Mode:: Sandals- Vintage:: Bag- Thrifted:: Belt- Thrifted::  Sunglasses- Ray-Ban
The sun is shinning, the fog has temporarily cleared, and my sundresses are slowly making their way from the depths of my wardrobe. I always prefer more feminine pieces for summer months, and this 1950s cotton day dress with embroidered flowers will be a staple for the upcoming season. I wore this out last weekend for a casual early evening spent in the Panhandle reading Haruki Murakami's The Elephant Vanishes. I first heard some of Murakami's stories on Selected Shorts, a popular broadcast on NPR. As a teenager, I used to despise talk radio. Now, I eagerly listen to my favorite programs when I am driving to work or cooking dinner at home. While This American Life is my go-to program on Saturday afternoons, I also love A Prairie Home Companion as well as the occasional listen to Car Talk for its witty banter. As you can see, my life has been pretty low-key (or boring) lately- NPR talk radio and lazily reading books in the park on my free time.

This sundress is absolutely perfect, I adore the fit and pattern!! Sundresses and feminine pieces are definitely my favourite for summer as well. Love those shoes

Frannie Pantz :

I haven't listed to any radio in a long time. I never know what's on or new anymore. LOL What I do know is that these photos are gorgeous, so is the dress and so are you! Enjoy your weekend! Hope we get to see lots more pretty sundresses in the future.

Your days of talk radio and reading sound awesome to me. I've been reading quite a bit now that I'm out of school for the summer. It's wonderful and relaxing.

thank you for the listening ideas, I always want to listen to things when I tire of music but never know what. You look so lovely in this vintage dress, total Jackie O look. & hope this doesn't sound creepy, but you have a beautiful hourglass figure!
