style monday | a little bit of a 70s groove

wearing: sundress (70s vintage), belt (Target), earring (Forever 21), bracelet (70s vintage), sandals (Anne Taylor), sunglasses ($5 store).
Happy Summer! It's officially here--and the weather that comes with it. Although I am not complaining about the hot days and even humidity: I'd rather have that than the bitterly cold weather of this past winter. 

How did you spend the first day of summer? I spent a very delightful morning with a group of friends at an amazing estate sale. We like to go out a couple weekends a month to check out the local sales and see what treasures we can find. Most of us are in the throes of redecorating or replacing newlywed furniture--but on a budget. This past Saturday's estate sale was a a gorgeous Victorian home and filled with decades of treasures. Everyone came home with some great finds; I'm hoping to show you a couple of mine in the coming weeks! In fact, it is my goal to start posting some room tours soon--things are finally coming together with some of the vintage pieces I've been adding into the decor here.

Maybe I should talk a little about this outfit, since this is an outfit post?! I love this dress (late 1970s vintage)--I'm not sure I've really shown it online in years. I bought it when I was 22, and it has proved to be my go-to sundress every summer. It's polyester, which gets a bit sticky when the weather is really hot, but the advantage is no wrinkles!

  4. I love your dress Casey! I've been on a 70s kick for a while now...I love pairing maxi dresses with super chunky wedges. I also take most of my hair-spiration from the 70s. Linda Ronstadt had the hair of my dreams. :)
    Looking forward to your estate sale finds!
