Floral With a Vintage Flair!

Hello lovelies,

This post is extremely late this week due to bad weather and recovery from a weekend-long retreat I attended. I have been fortunate enough to be included on the Catholic Youth Leadership Team for my diocese and got to spend the entire year working with who are now some of my closest friends to plan the Annual Catholic Youth Convention. It was such a blessed experience and I hope I can do it again next year.

But I digress. I was so excited to learn that this week's trend was floral because I had just received a vintage dress that my grandmother wore from my mom and I am absolutely in love with it! I have a huge crush on vintage-style clothing, especially from the 1940s-50s era.


Sandals: Born; Dress: Vintage, handmade, similar one here: Eshakti; Earrings: Handmade


This outfit is great for a busy summer day when you have tons of fun to get to, but you slept in! If your dress is a wrap one like mine, it's super quick to get into. All you need to do next is pop on some cute sandals, a pair of earrings, and you're ready to take on the world! For makeup I just did the basics: Foundation, Mascara, lip gloss and blush, but you could definitely play around with a bright red lip and a cat-eye for an extra retro feel. The messy bun is quick and a bit of a modern touch, but if you really want to go all out, you can add a headscarf and maybe even some curls!


I hope you all didn't mind the wait too much, I apologize again, hopefully my next post will be on schedule!

Love you,



  1. How lovely! The feather duster is a cute touch, makes me think of a charming 1940s housewife doing spring cleaning! :) What fun to get an authentic vintage dress from your family!

  2. Thank you! Yes, the duster made me think of the same thing :)
