Perfect Weekend Dress


I wish the weekend was longer. It always seems to fly by so quickly, probably because I normally try and pack as much as I can into these two days. I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Here in Michigan, we were treated to summer-like weather, with the temps in the high 70s and low 80s! Because of this, I was able to take a few of my summer dresses out for one last spin before the colder weather arrives.

This is one of the dresses I acquired at the Midland Flea Market for $10. It's a sweet little 40s wrap house dress that I am sure was some lady's favorite, due to some holes, faint stains, and repairs. None the less, I love the dress and feel it is the perfect thing to wear out to the farmer's market and to estate sales. The pocket on the hip is perfect for holding some cash and my cell phone while out, eliminating the need for a purse. And, while I love purses, I love the ability to just throw the essentials into my pocket and have my hands and arms free for shopping.
