· Gingham Day! ·


Back in my post about my new gingham dress, I mentioned that my sister and I spent the weekend with Kathryn and Tara so we could officially recognize "Gingham Day".

Because the best holidays are the ones you make up. ;-)


For the occasion, we all dressed in gingham, rounded up the essentials for a typically mid-century picnic, and went off to the park!



Glass coke bottles ensued....



.... And recreating vintage ads....


..... And just generally having a good time with great friends!












In case you missed the posts about my dress and Kathryn's, follow the links! My shoes are currently available on Royal Vintage Shoes!









And what's a picnic without a lot of laughing??

    1. Irene, haha! Actually the park was nearly deserted, but that made for easy photos! The only people there were definitely avoiding eye contact. ;-)

    1. Aww, thanks Esther! We had great fun. :-D (although we really must schedule these things on *NOT* the hottest days of the year sometime...) That photo was one that was high on our list to do but we all thought we'd get a better effect from an actual photographer, rather than the limited angles of the tripod. ;-)

  6. I have been following you for awhile, I saw you at one of Melissa Niednagel's balls in Missouri around a year ago. I love most of your projects and photography, but I have to say, your black gingham dress is my all-time favorite, both this post and the pictures you posted a few weeks ago. Love it so much! I would LOVE the pattern. Fantastic job. So many cute outfits!

    1. Thanks! And you're right- it's so fun to see the little differences we each chose!

  9. LOVE these photos! What a fun day indeed! I saw you post on Instagram and commented that I needed to add a gingham dress to my vintage wardrobe. As fate would have it I was able to snag one later in the day through one of the FB vintage pay/sell pages. How funny!

    1. Emily, what fun! I feel like I might need a little more gingham in my life now... it's rather shocking how absent from my wardrobe it has been!

  13. Very cute photos, I love how you all match each other :) My favourite photo is the one where you pose like in a 50's ad, I can so recognize that one! I love vintage ads, they are so feminine and beautiful, like all of you.

    1. Heehee, thanks! I do love recreating vintage poses, but they are remarkably awkward at times- "my feet are supposed to be at *what* angle??". ;-)

  14. These are some of the most cheerful, beautiful photos (and outfits) I've seen anywhere online this year. Awesome job, ladies - you all look sensational and as though you could have just hopped straight out of the fifties.

    xoxo ♥ Jessica
