The Beautiful Hunger of Afternoons

It's full-on summer hot here (as evidenced by my red red cheeks and ears--yes, my ears blush too) even though it won't officially start until June 20th and lacking central air we have deployed an army of fans around the old house making transpering the narrow hallway upstairs slightly treacherous and churning our own homemade ice cream in flavors of peanut butter and vanilla. This dress by It's Okay My Dear seems like the perfect encapsulation of summer as it reminds me of picnic. I've followed It's Okay My Dear for several years after reading about her on another blog and admiring her souffle hats, but I think her new collection of gingham pieces and fancy cut-outs is my favorite yet. After a few interactions online she offer me this dress and I was pretty ecastic, I was even happier when it arrived in the mail--it fits like a dream, feel so sturdy/well-made, and it has pockets. So, shall we pack a basket and enjoy the sunshine?

  6. This dress looks so summery and '50s! I can't imagine a summer without central air conditioning. It's funny, this post kind of reminds me of some of your older posts. I like it :)

  8. One summer I lived in an old house in NC that didn't have ac...hottest summer of my life. We did eventually get a window unit for the living room after a couple of months, but as my room was upstairs, it just pushed heat up there and made it even hotter. Hopefully, it won't be as bad in PA?

  12. I love that dress!! What colour is the plaid I can not tell if its navy, green, black or gray? I think these shoes would go well with it.

  14. @Anonymous, the gingham is navy. A variety of shoes would go with the dress--it's up to the wearer. :)
