vintage lace & lazy braids

I wish I could put into words how happy I am that it has been above 70 degrees all week. I worked all weekend, and the second I got home each evening I headed for a sun dress, a cold beer, and friends. Lounging by the lake every day has me the most relaxed I've been in months...oh Washington, thank you for your seasons. Summer fashion, welcome. 

ps--I copied this quick hairstyle from this pin. Not that I can rock anything like an Olsen twin can, but a girl can try. 

dress & sandals: Target, vest & purse: thrifted, necklace: UO

This is such a cute look! I really think I would've passed that vest right up in a thrift store, not realizing it's potential. I'm glad you saw it! :)

Very lovely and summery outfit, also a tad hippiesque :) What I love most are the nice accessories and your braids!

I love love LOVE the simplicity of this outfit. So effortless, but so cute! I love it when dresses and outerwear are the same-ish length, and proportions are played with.
Lovely!
