Outfit # 2

As I said in my last post I started out my birthday in one outfit, and promptly changed when my sister gave me a super cute vintage dress.


My sister brought this dress for me back from a vintage shop in London. I love the red and polka dots, so great!



I got lots of lovely gifts, and did some vintage shopping while in Nashville, and I can't wait to show you all the things I found! (I've been searching for a late 40's/early 50's suit and finally found TWO...bahhh!)

We're gonna be in Nashville most of this week (after a brief return to Jackson to pack more things) doing wedding planning, searching for apartments, and whatnot. Then it'll be off to Mobile to visit Tyler's family. Then school starts August 23. It seems like this summer has flown, oh my.

I hope all you darlings have had a lovely weekend!

xo,
 Em
