June: We took these photos when I last visited and I've been so excited about sharing this post!  It was one of those mornings where I'd arrived in Georgia and wet set my hair, went to sleep at 3 am just to wake up at 8 am.... took out my curls and BAM *flat*.  I sort of feared the worst but I spot curled with a curling iron and now I look at the photos and think about what an awesome time I had with Amelia, not that my hair looked sort of wonky.  In other news, this Cherry Lemon Swing Dress is an absolute dream.  I was a little bummed about the lack of pockets, but the construction is beautiful and the fabric is pleasantly a little on the thicker side.  There are also cute little buttons up near the collarbones.  This little cherry + gingham number isn't my first Stop Staring! Dress, but it's definitely my new favorite. 

AmeliaModern Pinup is a company I've known of for years, but they recently changed their name (from JBR Clothing).  I love that they offer such a wide variety of dresses.  I was thrilled to try my first Stop Staring! piece from Modern Pinup.  I absolutely love going on picnics, but Michael doesn't share my love, so whenever June and I get together we usually take advantage of our time and have a picnic.  Sitting on a picnic blanket in the park always reminds me of visiting Tennessee in the Summer and watching fireworks with my family.  This wiggle dress is so well constructed that it still looked great on me even after drinking copious amounts of soda and eating pecan pie. If that doesn't speak for how great a dress is I don't know what will.

Right now through July 5th you can get 15% off sitewide at Modern Pinup by using promo code "FIRECRACKER". 

What are your Fourth of July plans?

  1. Beauties!! I'm so glad you guys got your hands on these dresses. One day the four of us shall have a picnic and it will be THE BEST (and cutest) thing to ever happen. I need to invest in an adorable picnic basket in the interim. And also, soda just tastes so much better out of glass bottles! <3

    I LOVE gingham! I've been browsing Modern Pinup for months now but haven't pulled the trigger on anything. The dress Amanda has on is definitely up my alley though.Also, girl your hair on a "bad day" is better than mine on a good day! I think you look great! I also love how the red polka dots look on Miss Katie and how both dresses compliment each other for this shoot.
