That Girl from The Notebook

This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a baby shower for my cousin! I got to see a lot of family I hadn't seen in a while and hang out with my immediate family as well, which is always lovely. Both of my cousins from that family have a baby now and they are both the most delicious little chubby cheeked darlings.  The whole affair was decked out in blue balloons and photographs of the little guy. Plus I got to spend some time chasing my nephews around! All in all a great day :)

This dress, bag, and shoes are all finds from the free thrift store I visited this summer. I was worried about the dress being a bit too 90's, but with the right styling I think it looks positively 1940's! I even had a couple of ladies tell me I looked like, "That girl from The Notebook." haha. What a complement I must say! I just adore midi length dresses and this one turned out to be the epitome of comfort. One of my favorite finds for sure!

I had to get some shots with my sisters and mama! My sister Nancy in the violet is expecting her third baby in November, we CANNOT wait!

God Bless!

"That girl from the notebook"--haha, I love it! Isn't it awesome when people give you comments on your outfits? It's like a nice burst of confidence... hehehe. Also, is there anything you don't look absolutely flawless in? Honestly, whatever color you don looks so good on you. That purple is a stunning shade, and I love how it mimics the lovely color on your lips!

And I'm adoring your fairy princess curls, too. Your ringlets are gorgeous!

Have an awesome start to your week, lovely lady! Sorry I've been so slow with comments--I've had a tough week, but I'm back now AT FULL FORCE! CHAAAARGE! <3

Oh, there's definitely a "The Notebook" vibe to this look, and who wouldn't want that?!Haha. Your hat (or fastener?) looks beautiful and absolutely love how you matched your lipstick to it! Your hair looks beautiful here too, so lovely and curly!

I think you did a great job with styling the dress! Definite 40's vibe over 90's I would say! Sounds like a fun weekend!
