I have been loving all of the vintage-inspired florals I have been seeing all over the place — the kinds of prints you might have expected to find at a textile trading post in your covered buggy back in 1846, while en route West in search of gold, but re-interpreted in modern shapes. (Did anyone else play Oregon Trail?) Below, my top picks for nailing the Laura Ingalls Wilder-chic vibe:
THE GORGEOUS AGUA BENDITA DRESS SEEN ABOVE
THIS PLEATED MASK
THIS PRETTY DOEN-ESQUE TOP IN THE FLORAL PRINT ($25!!!)
THIS DRESS IN THE ROQUEFORT PRINT
THIS $20 HEADBAND, OR THIS RIBBON-WRAPPED ONE
SARAH BRAY SUNHATS (YOU CAN BUY VINTAGE RIBBON TO SWAP OUT THE TIES!)
EVERYTHING FROM LOVESHACKFANCY
THE LOVESHACKFANCY LOOK FOR $64
THIS ADORABLE $70 TOP — PERFECT WITH HIGH-RISE BLACK SKINNIES
AS OF THE TIME OF WRITING THIS POST, THIS TOP IS ONLY $15…! LOVE LOVE LOVE
THE SEA DRESS I’VE BEEN OBSESSING OVER FOR THANKSGIVING
THIS DARLING TUNIC DRESS, OR THIS STRAPLESS SMOCKED NUMBER BY THE SAME BRAND — BOTH SO EASY BREEZY FOR THE BEACH
THIS SWEET (DISCOUNTED!) REFORMATION FLORAL TOP
THESE FLORAL SANDALS
THIS DRAMATIC MIDI
THIS STUNNING HORROR VACUI BLOUSE
P.S. This vibe is very grandmillennial-friendly.
P.P.S. Speaking of grands — a little recipe from my grandmother that you must try, and several remembrances of my grandfather.
P.P.P.S. Unrelated to this trend at all: this $83 dress is perfect with a black suede boot for fall (some other thoughts on fall boots and dresses here).
