All in the Family

I procured this dress from one of Sean's aunts a while back. I cannot believe I haven't worn it before now! It has so many special details that I just love. Red polka dots, petal sleeves, and pleats? I couldn't come up with a better combination! I always love wearing clothing that belonged to a family member. It makes the item so much more special to know the story behind it. I was told she wore this particular dress for her senior pictures which is so neat! 
I also thrifted this mint scarf at a little antique shop in a nearby town. It has the sweetest print and you all know by now how much I love this color! I also love the combination of red and mint. It's interesting because when you wear red and with a darker green it looks very Christmas-y. Pairing it with a shade like this however adds such a sweet vintage vibe.














Well, the hubby is away for the week on business to California, how unfair is that? I always wish I could accompany him on his business trips because, well-who wouldn't want to go to California? I like having the apartment to myself for a little while, but that only lasts about a few hours and then I want my husband back! My big project this week is to clean every room in the house so that he can be surprised upon his return. Wish me luck!

Have a happy day, all :)
God Bless,
KJA

I love the red polka dots. I didn't notice at first. The sleeves are AWESOME and I love the green with it. The green is almost mintish which totally breaks the red+green Christmas vibe.
