save the best for last

dress: made by Dago's mom // shoes & necklace: vintage

 Okay, I know I said "so long, sweet summer," but I wanted to share one last super summery sundress look on the blog. This dress is so incredibly special to me. Not only is it eyelet, yellow, and the perfect shape, but it was made by Dago's mom! In addition to being strong, beautiful, and loving, she's a wonderfully talented woman. I love her so much!

When I was in Houston earlier in the summer for Free Press Summer Fest, I wore one of my favorite sundresses. She liked it, so she measured it and whipped up a brand new dress for me! It fits me so well and I can't wait to cherish it for summers to come.

Since she gave me the dress, I've been wearing it with a denim jacket and sandals, but I wanted to show another, less expected styling. As I pretend that the temps are a-dropping, I want to incorporate some darker hues into the last scenes of my summer outfits. 

 A little vintage and a lot of love went into the making of this outfit!

Muchos gracias, Mrs. Zepeda!
Te quiero!

  6. I love this dress so much. So pretty! I really need to hurry up and buy a sewing machine and learn how to sew already. Maybe as a graduation present.
