Have Fun, Will Travel Pt 2: ootd

    Have Fun, Will Travel.  Part two of the series is here and now with more props!  I'm so excited to have found this vintage camera and suitcase.  Since I'm so far away from all my favorite flea markets, every now and then I send mom on a mission.  This time it was for vintage luggage and being the super hero searcher that she is, she found three lovely pieces and shipped them to me with love and care.  The first is this little blue Crown in perfect condition.  And since I have a vintage suitcase, I thought I'd use my vintage camera for this shoot as well.

    The dress is also a blast from the past (but only the past year or two).  I loved the Have Fun, Will Travel dress by Bea & Dot, but in the end it wasn't in my budget and it eventually sold out.  I was pretty thrilled to find it in new condition for far less than the retail price.  Since there are so many colors in this print, I have lots of options for how to accessorize.  For this outfit, I used my Magenta Charter School Cardigan and Navy Blue Dynamic Debut heels and a chunky vintage ring which was another flea market find.

I love, love, love this dress!  I'm so glad it found me!

For my hair this week I did a knot braid across the front.  I'm not sure I have the right hair for this style or any other for that matter, but it was fun trying something new.  I used Kayley Melissa's Knotted Braid Tutorial video to help me get this style and I highly recommend her tutorials.
