I love how these two images are completely unrelated, yet go together perfectly!

1. Thrifted Lands End tank top
2. Thrifted handmade crochet lace collar (pinned on with safety pins so I can remove it to wash the tank)
You too can have this outfit, if…what?! You mean you don’t have a mother who mails you boxes full of fun clothes and sewing notions? Oh.
the newest toast UK summer catalogue has officially given me the travel bug.

each friday, lottie of the vintage fashion blog lottie loves posts about pretty dresses. it’s all part of a campaign she’s started called think frock, it’s friday! in order to encourage women to wear dresses at least once a week. dresses are so inherently feminine by their very nature, and i think it’s wonderful that she is inspiring women to wear dresses. here are a few little things i spied over at modcloth.com today. aren’t they pretty?
i’m folding clean laundry. it looks like something pink exploded all over my house. it looks like at least seventeen girls live here. this isn’t nearly the half of it. my poor husband. this place is overflowing with aveline’s and my clothes — stuck in limbo somewhere between washed and folded and to-be-tried-on and to-be-given-away and to-be-stored. there are the boxes of my own clothes that i’ve begun to unpack, then quickly abandoned upon the discovery that nothing fits. there are the piles of aveline’s clothes that she’s outgrown and not-quite-grown-into. there is the ever-growing laundry basket, since aveline makes certain that she and i change clothes at least twice a day. and then there’s the diaper laundry. oh, and i guess josiah needs clean clothes occasionally, too ;-) did i mention i’m thankful for indoor laundry facilities?
“Put on your pretty dress, it’s time for you to go to the dance. Tie your hair in ribbons and lace, and wear pearls around your neck. Put your red coat on, and walk with a light in the woods. If it gets dark, don’t get scared. There’s so much waiting for you.” (Rosie Thomas, Pretty Dress)
