One beautiful day in late May (why the fuck am I rhyming?), I decided on this get up. My sister was visiting. She had just done my hair and makeup for another post so I felt silly dressing down with a fancy head on my shoulders. Plus it felt like a fun day. So I decided on this dress from the 80s that I’d found a couple of months before in a thrift store. I love the bright floral bottom. It also had padded shoulders but I cut those babies right out.

I had to add another thrift store find, some super cute tan kitten heel style espadrilles. They are very similar to some that I had highly coveted from my favorite online shoe club but they cost me $36 less.


I completed the look with some fun costume jewelry given to me by a friend and a cheap, yet incredibly durable hat.

My sister, Hot Donna, decided to get in on the fun so this is the same day that we shot her In the Garden photos.
