What a great past few days I've had! A weekend by the lake was just what I needed though it didn't last nearly as long as I'd have liked it to. Back to real life now.

These photos were taken a month or two ago when the leaves were still young and fresh. Look at their springtime green! I'm getting these photos posted while it's still technically spring though so hah.

 dress: vintage (ca. 1976 c/o my mom) | shoes: c/o LC Lauren Conrad
purse: Element | necklace: gift

This is my mom's dress that she wore in 1976.  I love that my mom hung on to a few of her favorite pieces from that time.  And I love that they fit me perfectly! I'd also like to point out that the shoes I'm wearing are extremely tall.  I received them from being in the LC Lauren Conrad Blogger Contest so it's fun to own a pair of shoes I probably wouldn't have purchase on my own.  They are SO TALL.  But they're pretty and sometimes I must suffer comfort for style for at least a quick photoshoot...I think I had flip flops waiting in the car.

Have a lovely week!

  9. Love it, Julia! Your mom had fabulous taste. What a great vintage piece. I am also digging your super tall shoes. You look fab!

  10. I love that you're wearing your mom's dress - and looking great in it! Heels are so much fun, even though they sometimes hurt. I get that. But it's worth it, right? :)

  11. Can I just say how delighted I am to have come across your blog! I saw your comment on Kassi's and thought I'd wander over and visit.
    Love that dress, and it's so much more special since it's your mom's! And hey, free shoes from a contest? Wouldn't turn that down either haha. I've done that before. I like high shoes, but sometimes they're a bit much so I keep a change of shoes nearby. :)

  17. YES, I can finally post my comments- Yayyy:)
    Beautiful dress- you are so lucky that you can wear your mom's outfits!! You look stunning dear

  18. I wish my mom saved some of her clothes for me! She's notorious for purging her closet way too often. AND weekends by the lake---are perfect.

    I'm also sort of crushing on those shoes.

  20. So jealous that you can fit your mom's old stuff! My mom is way tinier than me, so that stopped being an option after the age of 14. Oh well. You look fabulous in this dress. And free shoes? Yay!

  21. Hi Julia! I love clothes that have a history - and your beautiful dress definitely has one :) Those Lauren Conrad heels look so beautiful! You said that "sometimes I must suffer comfort for style for at least a quick photoshoot" and it's 100% true - sometimes you need to feel pain for beauty. Would you like to follow each other? I think your blog is my cup of tea! ;) I'm your newest reader now.
