Retro Floral

Sometimes I wish that I grew up in the '40s

I wish for big collars and button-down dresses 

I wonder what life would look like in the '50s

With full floral skirts and cat eye sunglasses

The vintage girl in me wants to live in those decades

But God placed me here, in the twenty-first century

So I work alongside Jesus in the here and the now

But who says I can't do that while dressing with memory


Pictured above is my fantabulous Easter dress that I wore this year! (Yes, I used the word fantabulous again. I think that it's my favorite word. In case you missed it, here's my post defining that word.) After hunting for a retro-inspired dress, I found this one at Old Navy on sale!


And the blue even complements my eyes!




I just love these shoes! I feel like Agent Carter or some other woman who can conquer the world with just the power of her shoes. 


Do you ever really stop and smell the roses? At my house, we have roses blooming everywhere, and to pause for a moment and inhale their aroma just makes spring seem real.

Thank you for reading my first outfit post! I plan to do more in the future, including my music festival inspired outfit that I wore to see David Crowder recently and a princess-y one that I wore to church this week. Comment below which decade you've dreamed of living in!

  3. Oh my gosh you are so pretty! I love 40s fashion, but a majority of the stores here do not carry such styles, which is sad. :( That blue dress is gorgeous!

    xoxo Morning

    1. Aw, thanks! I can't take credit, because God designed me, but I did do my hair that day. Later you will see it natural, which I like a lot too.

      I know! I wish stores carried vintage fashions all of the time, but I can't find many. Lauren Conrad at Kohls has some pretty vintage inspired clothing. And Old Navy had a lot of dresses!
