outfit: secret garden

calivintage: secret garden

these photos were taken on sunday after laying in the grass at the morcom rose garden by my house. i had a belly full of egg sammiches and champagne spiked with pomegranate juice, and may have dozed off in the grass for a little bit before snapping these pictures… so that is indeed the look of pure bliss on my face, haha. it was a warm day, so i jumped at the chance to pull on an easy sun dress and immediately ran for this family affairs dress! nina sent it over as a surprise gift a few months back just in time for me to take it with my on my trip to hawaii, but despite the fact that i had to resist wearing it every single day that i was there, i never managed to get any good photos of it! so i was happy that we were finally graced with a day warm enough for me to wear it!

  1. Okay, champagne with pomegranate juice has shot to the top of my summer cocktail list. I love anything tart/sour + alcohol!

  2. It is my absolute favourite Family Affairs piece <3 and you look so lovely – I love that slightly dazed feeling right after a mid-afternoon (and usually post food!) nap! Bliss!

  3. Aww I love the dress! Such a sweet print and eye-catching detail on the bust! It’s such a lovely vintage -y outfit together with the cozy granny cardi! <3

  4. Oh my, this dress has been my dream dress since the moment I saw this Family Affairs collection. It is so so so perfect, and I love it even more after seeing it on you! I love those shoes and cardi with it too. Siiiiigh.

  5. I love the print on the dress! The illustrations on it remind me of looking through a vintage children’s book or one of those garden books!
