Sing with a swing

If you’ve been following my blog the last three weeks, then you saw the past two fashion posts featured photos by the lovely Kiersten, AKA my fairy photographer. Sadly, this is the last of the three looks we shot that day, but I saved the best for last (and we’re going to shoot together again eventually)!

I’m warning you right now, this blog will be the most photo heavy so far, but there were too many pictures I loved from this outfit not to share them all! For this look, I wanted to do something very elegant and classic to go along with this beautiful dress from YesterDaze, a vintage store in Tampa that is just too good to be true.

This dress is a 1950’s navy wiggle dress that I picked up at YesterDaze, turned to my friend and said, “Do you think this will fit?”

Well, for a total eyeball, we did really well, because once I went to the fitting rooms and tried it on, it was clear that it fit perfectly!

The dress features the most amazing neckline detail — I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, because I don’t think words will do it justice.

I’m sure none of you are surprised by the earrings in this post, once again from my lovely friend Kate’s Etsy, Winifred + Bramble. I just really love these earrings a lot, okay?!

The hat was a purchase on Etsy I am so happy about, because it’s such a beautiful but simple style and I think I’ll get plenty of use out of it… and one day, I will learn how to do pin curls and brush out my hair to get that perfect vintage hairstyle and this hat will look perfect then.

To finish off the outfit, I wore my favorite tan heels from Chase & Chloe (purchased on Amazon), which are probably the most comfortable pair of heels I’ve ever owned (never mind the fact that I discovered that day that despite being comfortable, they’re not suited for a whole lot of walking anyway). Lastly, I wore the What Katie Did seamed pantyhose, which sadly did not survive the day and were my last pair, so I’ll be looking for alternatives soon since I think their pantyhose are just too small for me in all of my 5’9 glory.

I was drawn to Disney’s Boardwalk Resort for this shoot and boy, am I glad! We found the most adorable little garden in the back of the resort which provided the perfect shoot location, between the relative quiet, the lawn that Kiersten could roll around in to her heart’s content and this adorable archway with the most beautiful and yummy-spelling flowers!

I honestly love everything about these photos, and I’m so happy to have friends like Kiersten in my life to do this for me! She’s incredibly talented, so if you aren’t already, please follow her Instagram, her blog and go check out her new Etsy!

Thanks to Kiersten for the beautiful photos and thanks to all of you for reading my blog. <3
