From Grandma with Love // Halter Dress

It’s Friday and I couldn’t be happier!  It’s time for another hand-me-down from Mr. S’s grandmother!

Dress from G-ma {cute from WHBM} // Anthropologie necklace {pretty from F21} // H&M flower pins // gifted, thrifted, Premier bracelets {similar cuff from Kendra Scott} // JCrew glitter clutch  {super duper cute from JCrew} // thrifted Bottega Veneta heels for $18 {similar from Kate Spade}

Silly Texas weather is at every extreme.  As you can see, it’s no longer chilly and I’m sporting a strappy summer dress!  This cute little number originally came with a flower pin, but it was in sad shape.  I had a Goldilocks moment trying to replace it with one of my own brooches.  Instead of putting the brooch back, it would end up back on me, hence, the abundance of flowers!  Actually, I felt the need for more but I refrained.
This is was my inspiration!  Remember Coach back in 2006?  Yes, I still have these catalogues.  Hoader, remember?

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!  Until next week’s ‘From Grandma with Love‘ post…

  6. There’s so much here to love! First, I adore the flower pin….and the large scale of it! The dress is so pretty; it really looks contemporary.

    What a fun backdrop…how did you do that? The big floral background is just so fun!!!!

    1. Thanks Lisa! I’m so sorry to be replying so late! {So I’ll also email you.}

      I used photoshop. For the floral background, I downloaded the flowers from fuzzimo. Then I traced around myself and copied it in photoshop. I pasted all the flowers, and kept copying them and moving them around until I liked the placement. Don’t know if that makes any sense, but hope it helps!
