What I Wore - Young At Heart

What I'm Wearing: Tench Coat Christmas gift {H&M} // Polka-dot 1940s Swing Dress made by me {pattern review} // Emerald Green Cardigan Target // Seamed Tights F21 // Oxfords F21 // Friendship Bracelets made by me // Vintage Pin Antique Mall // Pearl Clustered Earrings Claire's

Hello everyone! As you can tell we are back home; have been since Sunday evening. I might do one or two more posts this week. But most of the posts coming up at the end of this week (and all of next week) will be scheduled {along with more guest bloggers!}.

For Valentines today I decided to dress 1940s. Gabrielle did my hair last night {with a curling iron}! Yes, my hair really holds curls well overnight. And then I wore a red tint on my lips & a touch of rouge on my cheeks. 

Today I've been making a ton of friendship bracelets in a bunch of colors. This is in fact, my first time ever making them. I used to wear them about ten years ago - and loved them! They have to be my favorite type of bracelet as they don't make a bunch of noise, or feel funny on my wrist. In fact, I forget I'm even wearing them.


  1. I absolutely loved this, Ashley! I would totally wear it!

    That dress is so cute!!! And of course I love the coat.

    The pin is soo vintage... delightful... and you know I love friendship bracelets. ;)

    Good job! :D

  2. Love the entire outfit--I am so envious of your sewing talent! And I've been wanting a pair of seamed pantyhose.

    Great look!
