Lantern

Pinup Girl Clothing Pinup Couture Jenny Dress in Lantern Print Heart of Haute Sweet Sweater in Black

When the sky is gloomy I love to come to this local park.  It's the perfect place to take some outfit pictures but it's also equipped with a play area for Bianca.  Going anywhere with an almost three year old is difficult, so having some kind of entertainment while I get some "me time" in is essential.  There was also this amazing haunted house across the street but I felt uncomfortable creeping on somebody's lawn without them knowing.  I'm pretty sure that's only acceptable on Halloween!

Like I've mentioned in earlier posts, Stephanie Buscema's Lantern print has been my favorite of the many Halloween prints from Pinup Girl Clothing.  I love the vintage Halloween aesthetic, the bold colors, and the adorable cats!  While I'm showcasing the Jenny dress today, I've also purchased the Peasant top and Harley Wiggle dress in this print as well.  That's when you know you really love something!  While the reviews have been mixed, this dress runs very true to size in my opinion.  I sized up initially but I was swimming in it!  Thankfully, I was able to nab this dress in my actual size with time to wear it before Halloween.  As for the matching belt, you can only find it on the Harley Wiggle dress.  I prefer it on the Jenny but I'm glad I have the option of wearing it on either dress.

I topped my look off with Stephanie's matching pins and my favorite sweater on the planet: the Heart of Haute Sweet sweater.  While most people like to tie it in a bow on the front, my friend Julia had the genius idea of tying the sweater in the back.  I love it so much more this way!  It makes me feel like a ballerina.  And let's be honest...  I want to be a ballerina everyday!

It's one more week until the big move!  I haven't done as much packing as I'd hoped, but this week has been one of the busiest in a long time.  It's funny how I'm only busy when there are big life changes on the horizon.  I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed, but I'm hoping Kevin can get a lot of the packing done while I'm at work this weekend.  Here's to hoping we get everything done before the big day!

  1. These darker colors suit you, girl! I'd feel weird creepin' on someone's lawn too - though, I have wondered if they'd mind you doing so if you rang their bell and simply asked? I mean, you've got to be braver than brave but I am sure if you were nice about it, they'd be all for you snapping some pics on their property - especially if it's purposefully decorated or something! I have considered that myself before!

  3. Whenever I read your blog posts while I'm at work (which is most of the time), I never comment b/c I'm logged into my work e-mail account. But I WANTED to say that you made me like this dress tons and also I need to try tying my sweet sweater in the back. SO stinking cute. ALSO HELLO WHERE IS THIS PARK I MUST KNOW.
