Beyond The Sea

Unique Vintage Retrospect'd 1950s Pin Up Style Blue Beyond The Sea Cotton Swing Sun Dress

Can we just take a minute to appreciate this gorgeous dress from Unique Vintage?  I've been on the hunt for something cute, summery, and covered in a fun novelty print and this dress hits them all.  I may not be close enough to the shore at this very moment, but I can enjoy the idea of it when I wear this dress.  Who needs to own a boat when you can wear them?!

Unique Vintage now carries Retrospect'd dresses, which just so happens to be a new addiction of mine.  Made in Australia, these garments are designed by two lovely sisters who believe the quality should be top notch and their prints to die for!  This particular dress features a slightly gathered bust, fitted waist, full gathered skirt, side pockets, and adjustable straps.  It's also made from 100% cotton, which means it's just as comfortable as it is cute.  Now that I can find Retrospect'd here in the states through Unique Vintage, I'll be adding many more to my wardrobe!

I had a much needed day off this weekend, which meant I had the chance to spend time with Kevin and Bianca AT THE SAME TIME.  We ended up at a friend's house for a bbq, which was wonderful because everyone who attended also had kids.  Bianca doesn't get too much time with kids her age, so it's always a treat to see her interact with others.  I think she's at the age where she can start some kind of extra curricular activity, which will probably be ballet or dance.  I'll let her decide of course!

  5. Man, I neglect my blog reading for a couple of weeks and you dye your hair a color found in nature? How will I live vicariously through your hair if it's a color that I could have? :(
    All kidding aside, it looks lovely on you, and that is a really fantastic print. I love that it's nautical without literally being navy.
