Retro Summer Style
With summer quickly coming to a close I’ve been wearing dresses as much as possible before fall arrives. I’ve also been in a bit of a retro-phase lately and have been wearing some older style dresses lately, so forgive me while I share one more with you!
Today’s dress is another from Queen of Heartz. It’s a great retro-style dress with classic lines and styling. While I was walking around Seattle with my friend we stumbled upon this beautiful wall lined with ivy. It was the perfect place to take these photos! I was even inspired to edit them with a vintage look.
Once again, I love to style this dress simply, I added pops of hot pink with my shoes and sweater, and then added a stacked wrist with tons of Kate Spade bangles that I’ve accrued over the years. And bonus points for you if you noticed that this dress passed the twirl test! Naturally, that alone makes it a great dress because who doesn’t love to twirl around in a dress like a 5-year old?

Yeay for twirling 🙂 Love this dress too. When I am up in Seattle I will have to check them out.
You can actually order these dresses online through Queen of Heartz vintage – just be very careful with the sizing, they run extremely small!
I LOVE the way the skirt on the dress twirls! That’s one of my favorite things about retro dresses.
🙂 It’s so much fun!
Cute Dress – where did you get the shoes?
I found the shoes at Nordstrom Rack. I’ve still seen them around so I’m sure you could find them!
Love the full skirt! You’re so cute 🙂
Thanks Ashley! The skirt is so much fun to twirl in!
i’m really into dresses in the summer as well..it keeps you so much cooler. in the fall, I wear more fitted dresses in darker colors, with longer hemlines
I agree! Wearing a dress in the summer seems to be a lot cooler than wearing pants. While I’m excited for fall and wearing more fall-appropriate dresses I know I’ll be sad to put away my pretty summer pattern dresses!
