The Perfect Pink Dress, I Mean, Jacket

























Have Love Will Travel Pink Vintage Dress


I love vintage dresses! I've recently really gotten into wearing button down dresses as jackets. While out and about shopping one day a friend put this genius idea in my head. I was trying on a long denim dress and she mentioned to me that I could also wear it unbuttoned as a jacket. I was immediately sold!

I've had my eye on this sweet pink vintage dress from Have Love Will Travel  for a little while. I found it while searching for vintage cotton dresses on Etsy. I'm pretty much only wear cotton dresses in the spring a summer since they are so comfy and breathable. I also am shopping for them for my trip to Europe this summer. Yay! I did my happy dance when I came across this pink beauty. It's in the perfect soft pink hue and I just love the silhouette. I'm obsessed with over sized dresses. I was so happy when Rebecca from Have Love Will Travel was open to doing a collaboration with me. When asked what pieces I had my eye on from her shop I immediately mentioned this pink number. I was so excited once I received the dress. I loved her hang tag and lovely hand written note with the dress so much that I had to post it on Instagram.  

Since the dress was just a touch too big, I decided to wear it open like a jacket since it has buttons going all the way down the front. It makes the perfect spring jacket! You'll see me in it again really soon. I'll wear it as a dress for sure and belt it! I just need some new belts. Can you believe that I only have one belt??

As for the rest of my outfit, I scored this cropped jean jumpsuit from Down House Vintage during their holiday sale and couldn't wait to wear it. I loved how it looked with this sweet pink dress turned into a jacket. I am in serious need of a proper statement shoes. I only wear flats since I gave up heels years ago. My feet are much happier as a result. Lol. But I'm always on the search for a flat with a bit of embellishment or in a fun color. These gold lace up flats, I deemed as my going out shoes, certainly do the trick at making a statement. I love gold sandals in the spring and summer and these gold Steve Madden flats are so perfect since they go with just about anything. There's just something so special about metalic shoes.
