And we're home!
Neil had some work to do in Atlanta this weekend, so we thought we'd make the most of the quick trip and visit my sister Rhiannon and Drew. We shopped around the Five Points (I found a vintage peter pan collar blouse and smocked crop top), drank coffee, and ate Antico pizza.. all of which are fast becoming our Atlanta traditions with Drew and Rhi. I couldn't be happier about that.
I wore this 1960s Sears mini dress for a day of photos, but it's actually headed to the shop this week (shop update coming this Wednesday!). It's a deadstock find with the prettiest cream colored puff sleeves and gold buckle. I haven't found anything this adorable in awhile, so I was super pleased when I found it tucked away in the children's section, old tags and all.
Neil's vintage ankle boots came from Tidwell and Perryman, a menswear gem situated in Local Honey's new Nashville location on Belmont Boulevard. The shop is filled with all-American looks - plenty of plaid and denim, varsity jackets, and lots of great looking vintage brogues and oxfords. I'm always stealing Neil's button ups and striped sweaters.. if only those boots would fit me, I'd be stealing them too.
I received my sewing patterns in the mail today, which means I'll be busy sewing velvet dresses and cotton blouses all week long! Happy Monday!
