Red, White, and Blue

I must have been feeling inspired today! I spent the morning reading some of my favourite blogs before changing into a vintage blue and white dress, with a splash of red lipstick of course! We explored a local park, crossing our fingers that there would be Americans nearby who would set off fireworks. Sadly, there was no such luck! Instead, we enjoyed the pretty sunset on such a warm winters day.

I hope all of my US readers had a wonderful forth of July! It was so much fun to see all of the cute barbecue and firework photographs!

  7. I really can’t help wondering how you vintage girls are able to find these kinds of gorgeous pieces! I live in NYC where you can find practically anything but I’m finding it extremely difficult. Maybe I’m just looking in all the wrong places :/
