I'll Be Seeing You ❤

Floral 1950's Dress, Cream Hat, White Gloves: Thrifted.
Tan Clog Heels: Target.

Hello there everyone!
It's a tradition for me every summer to watch The Notebook before I go back to school. It's such a great source for vintage fashion inspiration that gets me set for the school year. Not to mention it's inspiration love and for living life to the fullest, as well! It never fails that every time after I watch the movie (and cry all my make-up off...) that I deck myself out in some vintage attire and go out pretending I'm Allie Hamilton...Golly, how I wish I could own her wardrobe and live her life!❤

This dress is a handmade vintage 1950's dress, but is new to me. I bought it in Akron when I went to visit my fellow Ohio bloggers and fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! The only bad thing about this dress though is it's made of really stiff material that doesn't particularly move...like some kind of material you would use for a plastic table cloth for your picnic table! I'm hoping though that after a few washes it might loosen up.

Hope you all are doing lovely! I had such a truly wondrous day filled with thrifting, coffee, and relaxing before I had to go to work for the evening :)
With much love, Lauren.

Lovely lovely lovely lovely lovely, Lauren! The Notebook is one of my favorite movies, too, and you already know how much I love Rachel McAdams. If you like suspense thrillers you should see her in Red Eye!
