daisies & day dresses

yelblueI yelbluVIII

Quick one today – I’m teaching at a summer program this week, and thoroughly enjoying a break from the usual fuss.  Sandals, summer dress, and a swipe of lipstick. No curlers or corsets. I empathize more with the “dowdy teacher” stereotype than I ever have – when you’re teaching middle schoolers, all you want is a comfy bra and sensible shoes.


Dress: ’40s vintage, via War’s End Shop

Brooch: vintage, via flea market

Everything else: thrifted

I aspire to be a bright-eyed girl in a big city, even though I wear glasses and live in what amounts to a hole in the ground.

One thought on “daisies & day dresses”

  1. Very pretty outfit. I love the pop of yellow from your brooch on the serene grey backdrop. It makes me think of the sun bursting out from amongst the clouds on a drizzly day (aka, our daily damp weather around these parts lately).

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica
