Vintage Plaid

Hello there! Bob and I got back from Wildwood & Cape May yesterday afternoon. We had a great time, and such sunny, beautiful weather every day. We went in the ocean on both Saturday & Sunday, and I'm so glad we got to do that! I just love swimming in the ocean. 
I don't like to lay on the sand for too long, but I do love hearing the soothing waves lapping on the shore. The water was warmer than the air temperature, so unless we submerged ourselves, it was chilly for the parts of our body not under the water. We were only there for two full days (Sat & Sun); we got there Friday evening, and left Monday morning. So, the trip flew by, naturally!
I'll do a blog post about it soon, probably this weekend. So, this week is another short work week for me, and next week will be my first full work week in quite awhile. 
In the pictures below I'm wear a colorful, fabulous vintage dead stock shirt dress that I bought from Etsy recently, and for a great price! It came with the original tags still attached; and I think that's so neat!  I don't want to take them off! The dress came with a thin brown belt, but I didn't think it did anything for me, so I won't wea it with the dress.
I feel like I'm wearing a piece of history when I wear vintage clothing. I've been quite lucky with finding vintage dresses lately, and my aesthetic seems to have shifted to vintage and Trashy Diva, with rare exceptions (specifically Bernie Dexter and Retrospec'd). 
I love that this dress has a lot of colors in it, but it's not crazy bright or anything. Don't get me wrong, I really love my super bright dresses, but it's also nice to have some variety in my closet.
