Microtrend: Vintage-Inspired Textiles.

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).

    1. Ooo I love this! I have a very similar dress to the “brown motif” pattern from Ulla that I adore. Right up my alley! Love it in the navy print, too. Thanks for sharing this.

  1. I love this grandmillennial-friendly trend! It reminds me of a Petersyn top I had a couple of years ago that I ended up selling (somewhat regretfully) on The RealReal — it had a print very similar to the Playa Lucila dress with ruffled sleeves. Would fit perfectly into this story!

    Also: I adore LR’s Emilia style and that floral print is just too chic!
