Sentimental Value

Dress: Forever 21
Cardigan: J.J. Basics
Socks: Forever 21
Shoes: Target
Bag: thrifted vintage

I bought this dress about five years ago when Jasen and I were on a road trip. We drove up the California coast, stopping in San Francisco for a weekend, then continued through a redwood forest, through Oregon and up to Washington to visit my relatives, who live near Olympia. So whenever I wear this dress I remember that trip, and it makes me very happy! It was the best vacation I’ve ever taken in my life. 


  1. I love the colour and style of that dress it looks beautiful on you.

  2. What a beautiful dress and great memories!

    It seems like the perfect dress for you, so lovely.


  3. I love this dress so much! I remember the first time I saw it after your trip. I was jealous then and I'm jealous now. The cardigan looks so cute with it too!

  4. This has always been one of my favourite dresses of yours. I was taken aback finding out it wasn't vintage!

  5. bohemian charm

  6. Loving the dress lady! the print is wonderful- very classic yet unexpected with the color scheme. And your past trip just sounds lovely (Oregon is one of my favorite places).

  7. oooh la la! that dress is beautiful! you should look into doing vintage pinup modeling; i think you'd be perfect!

  8. I love the little things that take you back to moments in time! I usually have songs or smells that remind me of an exact time or place.

  9. I adore your blog. Your way of dressing is elegant and feminine. Everything is so pretty.

    A dress as pretty that holds so much memory..... makes me smile :)

    sweetness xx
    hope to hear from you*!

  10. I don't think I ever saw you wear that dress with a cardigan before! It looks great!
    And I love how it brings back all those good memories. road trips are the best! I hope you can go to one again soon :)

  11. Your dress is absolutely stunning. And I adore it with the cardy, socks, and the sweet little heels. I'm really smitten with your gorgeous sense of style. Hope you're having a wonderful Monday. xx veronika

    So funny. In a few weeks, I'll be taking that drive too, sort of. With Robert's parent's for his graduation. Portland to LA. Though we're only driving up the coast on the way back up here.

    Love, love this dress--especially with the teal and the ankle socks. It looks so sweet.
