Reunited

We're back in Illinois! Mostly for a family reunion that occured yesterday. I decided I had to wear my sailor dress because it's adorable and so comfy for this hot weather.
dress: forever 21
shoes: forever 21
hair bow: h&m
bracelet: vintage from great aunts
earrings: forever 21



I really really love this dress. Anything nautical makes me happy. When I tried this dress on we all laughed at how young I looked in it. It grew on me the longer I had it on and I decided I just had to buy it. It's so perfectly light and summery. It's even lined so I don't have to worry about my underwear showing [which is always a big plus!]


The family picnic was pretty good. I ate a lot of these tasty sugar cookies my mom made into a cookie bouquet. They're seriously the best sugar cookies ever.


This is my pocket pose. Pretty cool, eh? My camera fit perfectly into them for the whole evening!

I love your dress! You look SO cute. And I think I need a nautical-themed dress in my life now. I love dresses that are lined; they make life so much easier.
Also, I want your shoes.

That dress IS adorable! I know it is a youthful style, but...I would totally wear something like that, and I'm almost 30.

I can't believe this dress is from Forever 21. I would die if I saw it there. Seriously, this dress is a beauty and it looks so good and 100% not childish. You look like a pretty sailor.

Ahh I absolutely love this dress! The bow on the front is so cute! So jealous it's lined - Ive just bought a white dress from Topshop that I am dying to wear but it's not lined haha! Need to get that sorted soon :)
