The Gold Hatted Lovers: Part Deux

 This may be my favorite outfit combination so far. This skirt and blouse with the darling collar makes my heart flutter. I can see myself wearing this a lot during the hot summer months, and also combining the pieces with lots of other things in my wardrobe.

I'm hoping doing these posts will get me back into blogging a little more. There's been so many changes going on lately that I've lost steam on keeping up the old blog. This summer will hopefully be a time of life slowing down a good deal and enjoying things like putting together a nice blog post. Until next time.

Gold Hatted Lovers: The Flutter Sleeve Day Dress

I've been a big fan of Katie and Tim of The Gold Hatted Lovers for a long time now. When I heard they were going to be launching a clothing line, I seriously freaked out, and when I actually saw the clothes, I freaked out even more. Everything looked so beautiful and the items they were creating were things I hadn't seen offered at other vintage reproduction places so I knew I had to start saving my pennies. 
Save them I did, and bought a few of their pretties for summertime lounging. Here is one of the lovely duds I purchased:

 This is the Flutter Sleeve Day Dress in Ivory. It's so gorgeous and silky in person I really never wanted to take it off. The construction of their garments is top notch and I adore that everything has that 30's look, but without the almost falling apart bit that original vintage sometime has. The dress is supposed to fall a little shorter, but I'm quite petite so it has more of a gown look on me. I may toy with shortening it, though I do like the longer length as well. 

I was going to put all the looks together in one blog post, and then I realized that might get a bit long. I had a lot of fun shooting these with my hubs, so I'll be doing three installments, and that way you get the goods without having to scroll for ages.

Katie and Tim have kindly offered my readers a 10% discount on their current spring/summer line. Just use the code: LILLIPUT at checkout.
If you're lusting over this collection go pick something out while you can as they will be discontinuing it in about 5 to 6 weeks. Hurry! Run to get the lovely garments!

Life Lately (or the last 4 or so months)

Here are some snaps of life over the last several months. The lovely Miriam came through Nashville this summer and stayed with us. I turned 25! I also took up yoga.

We saw lots of Nashville while Miriam was here. We went to some great restaurants like Hattie B's and Loveless. We heard some fantastic bluegrass and did a little bit of shopping. I got that fantastic 40's coconut purse at The Rare Bird.

I also celebrated my birthday in August (geez, I'm 25) with Tyler taking me to Sinema (if you're ever in Nashville you should go. The drinks, cocktails and decor are fabulous) My birthday cake says Take Two because on my birthday I got sick, some sad things happened, and altogether it didn't end up being quite the day we had planned, so Ty re-did the whole thing a few weeks later, which was so incredibly sweet.

I've started doing Ashtanga yoga and have developed quite a love and dedication for it. My sister Sarah and I are really interested in acro yoga and I'd love to take some classes and learn more. Any other Yogis out there?

It's Been Awhile

Hello, all. 
If anybody is around that still reads my blog, that is. I've been gone far longer than I planned, but really, I didn't plan on being gone at all. 
Since I've last written here we've moved in with my parents to save up for a house (and finish paying off a little bit of student debt...whooo!) Tyler has just finished up assistant directing a film, which took him from me for the whole month of October.
 Some sadness has crossed my path as well these last few months, and if you follow me on instagram you'll know I had a very dear friend and mentor pass away quite suddenly this summer. 
Life has been a little jumbled and complicated for the Littons as of late, but we're finally getting everything sorted out. I decided I wanted to come back to a little bit of blogging and it's been lovely to look around at all the darling blogs I follow, but haven't read in months.

Here is a little fall outfit I wore a week or so ago. I also have a couple summer outfits back in the files I might pull out. After all it's heading into summer for some of my friends out there.

This is an outfit from a while ago, but these capris from Vivian of Holloway have been a summer staple for me and I just had to share them.


I have the capris rolled up slightly here, so they are a bit longer when left down. They have really worked with so many outfits this summer. I hope they'll have them next year, because I definitely want a few more colors.

I hope you all are having a fabulous summer (or winter depending on where you live)!

Only Lovers Left Alive


Tyler and I had been wanting to see this film for a while, and when it finally showed up in Nashville we hurried off to see it. I think this film inspired a love akin to what Stoker inspired in me last summer, except there is more romance and less killing...at least a little less killing. 

The basis of the film is this amazing love story between two vampires, Adam and Eve, who are complete opposites, but two beautifully creative beings that love each other deeply.
 When I think of vampires I immediately go to something awful like the Twilight series kind of vampires. Thankfully, these vampires are quite the opposite. They are these gorgeous creatures and oh, so romantic and pretentious, in the most lovely way possible.

One of the many things I adored about the film was Adams creativity in the musical realm, it was so interesting to see a vampire portrayed as this amazingly talented and creative being. Also, the soundtrack is simply dreamy. Very different from anything I would normally have liked, but I ended up in love with it.


Stylistically the film is gorgeous. Half the battle with me is aesthetics, once you have fabulous costuming and a great feel to the movie you have me hooked. 

If you want to see a romantic love story, with dreamy music, and pretentious vampires, this film is for you. Even if that doesn't sound good, just go see it, you'll get hooked.

That Skirt

Ok, so I had plans of doing some kind of movie/life lately or something other than an outfit post, but I have so many fun things from months ago that I wanted to share with you all, that...you're getting another outfit post. I promise I'll try to be better about throwing in a little something different every once in a while. 

I thought June was going to be a nice slow paced month, sadly I was mistaken. It's been lots of traveling (and more to come) and busy-ness so far. I'm hoping *fingers crossed* July will be more kind. Any way, here is an outfit I wore (probably in April....gah). I wanted to share this one with you because this barkcloth skirt is to die for. I mean, when I saw it, I was weak in the knees from the wonder of it all. 


The skirt is from one of my new favorite shops here in Nashville. Main Attraction East. They sell a large number of new items, but the vintage they have is fabulous. Case in point: this skirt.
