Summer Days

A couple of months ago I came across an Instagram account that had the cutest vintage outfit photos- the girl wore a lot of shirtwaist dresses and 1950s skirts, blouses, and cardigans, and I loved the look of the shirtwaist dresses. 
I started searching Etsy for dresses like that in my price range and size, but just couldn't quite click purchase on the ones I found. The more I thought about it the more I realized while I loved the look of them, they weren't really "me" and wouldn't be something I would wear day to day. 

Not long after that a dress popped up in my Etsy updates feed that I really liked and loved the idea of: a vintage house dress- a more casual style, which usually has a tie waist or is worn with an open waist. I eventually bought that dress (and two more since!) with summer days in mind- something easy to slip on, cool to wear, and low-maintenance material. 

(This one has a draw string and zippered front, and the one below has a removable sash and zippered front.)

  1. LOVE those etsy dresses! Because of Overdressed, I'm so intrigued by vintage clothing fabric and construction. I'll have to do some browsing!
