When I picked up the floral prairie skirt (worn on my meetup with Anne) at the Salvation Army last Friday, I also found a second perfect vintage prairie piece. This little lilac dress captured my heart with its puffed sleeves, eyelet trim, and the best part… secret side pockets lined with lilac calico fabric!
Originally the dress was about mid-calf length with another ruffle layer at the bottom made of fabric with the same print only the colors were reversed. The combination of the two fabrics was cute, but I’m happy with the shorter length (it was too voluminous before) and the eyelet trim made it easy to cut the bottom layer off without having to worry about the hemline.
I wore this to the Harmony Festival last Saturday with a group of friends. The day was SUNNY and HOT so I was pretty stoked to look in my closet and realize I had the perfect lilac sunhat to go with my new dress! In fact, I wore this very hat to last year’s Harmony Festival... so, I think I’m going to start naming all my hats now, this one will of course be my Harmony hat :)
I'll leave you with a handful of enchanted moments captured during our shiny happy day…
A magical weekend to all!
Especially the papas :)
