My Darling Dirndl

First time now styling up the good ole' dirndl for the 30x30 challenge. I love this dress so much mainly because the amount of work it took to make it fit me. It was so worth it. The one thing is I pretty much style it the same every time I wear it. So this is my biggest challenge. I was going to wear a sweater today but it's starting to get warmer!!! I'm going down to Ohio this weekend and it's supposed to be in the mid 50's!! Yay! Kevin and I are going to meet with the caterers and eat, then meet with the cake bakers and eat!! Really I need to amp up the workouts.

Anyway I really like shooting in the back room. I think I've found my area (well I found it awhile ago). For workweek posts I'm going to try and keep this consistent. Or until it get nice outside and I can venture!

That dress was worth whatever amount of effort you put into it. It took my breath away (with jealousy) the minute I opened this post. :)

What a beautiful navy blue dress with gorgeous floral prints! I like that it's zipped up and vintage which means this whole zip exposure fashion trend is not recent. It's really lovely on you :)
