Girl Scout


I rarely have a reason to wear a costume at Halloween these years--I'm far too old for trick-or-treating and most of my friends have fall themed parties without the costumes. But I do enjoy dressing up and when I saw this vintage girl scout dress hanging in an antique mall I couldn't resist. Most days I'll probably try to play down the girl scout look but since it is the season to "come as you aren't" I decided to play it up a bit. I could use a cute neck tie, but I do think my new purse looks appropriately on theme. I love the little embossed crossed keys and the handy size; it's made to carry your iPad or Nook, but also perfectly holds these binoculars and a map. Now, I need to go earn some merit badges!

"I will do my best 
to be honest and fair, 
friendly and helpful, 
considerate and caring, 
courageous and strong, and 
responsible for what I say and do, 
and to 
respect myself and others, 
respect authority, 
use resources wisely, 
make the world a better place, 
and be a sister to every Girl Scout."

these are some amazing pictures! i love the theme and i am super envious of your dress. <3 years ago when i got *addicted* to eBay one of my goals was to find the perfect vintage girl scout uniform! haha sadly i wasn't able to get my hands on one (they were either too ridiculously short or ended up selling for too much!) but i suppose living vicariously through someone is not so bad. :p

Who would have thought that a Girl Scout uniform would make such a cute everyday dress? So creative!

This is wearable year round imo! So cute. And I do believe we are the same age-- don't let your age keep you from dressing up! I don't go to huge Halloween parties anymore, but we do have smaller get togethers with a costume contest. It's fun ^_^

This is easily one of my favorite photo shoots you've ever done. I love the filter/editing and the aesthetics are PERFECT. You look beautiful!

I know the dress itself says "Girl Scouts" but I feel like it would be more suited for army nurses during World War II

I adore vintage girl scout dresses. Hope you find some vintage merit badges to go with. Your hair is pretty here too, and I love the location.
