I Might Need Gingham Prevention Meetings

I’ve been on the ModSquad by Modcloth for over a year now and they put an old photo of mine up on their blog yesterday to ask people to also join the street team.  I thought that was pretty cool.

There’s this little elementary school near where I live and it looks like it was built in the late 50s/early 60s or so. I thought it would suit the time period of this lovely dress that I borrowed from Quincy over at Q’s Daydream. She also has worn one of my dresses which you can see how we each wore it through each of those links. She knows I love Gingham, so of course she sent me this one.

I love the lace on the dress. so cute.
Just to let you know, it was really sunny and warm on the day I took these. It had to have been at least 35 degrees but it’s been below 0 other days, so I was so cozy! The hat made me sweat a little. I don’t think I would be able to handle living in really warm climates.
What I’m wearing:
Dress: Borrowed from Quincy
Shoes: c/o Payless
Necklace: Charlotte Russe
Flower Hairclip: Lila-Jo
Hat: borrowed from my husband
Other than that, Since after cutting these bangs (which I have the longer pieces behind my ears for this outfit) I kept thinking about Janet Munro’s hair. When I put on Quincy’s dress here, Right away I thought about The Swiss Family Robinson in which Janet Munro was in (which I watched far too often as a child). It reminds me so much of these dresses she wore. Therefore I thought I’d share photos to illustrate for you what I mean.
