This wondrous season is just around the corner and I'm celebrating its arrival with this stunning Megan Dress in Harvest Florals from Karina Dresses.

Recycled Florals, Gingham and Midcentury Staples

I'm proud to say that I've finally reached a point where I've built a pretty solid foundation of vintage and pinup basics within my wardrobe.
