This is the last set of pictures I have from before the wedding, so I promise I’ll be following up with more wedding and honeymoon photos next! And to be honest, I was doubting whether or not to share these at all, since I wasn’t entirely happy with how they turned out.

Late 1930s navy floral dress with yellow 1940s jersey tilt hat and yellow shoes

This ensemble is a classic case of me loving all the components individually but them just… not being quite right all added together. The hat is wrong with the dress, I think, and different shoes would have gone better… but oh well, there’s always next time!

Carnation print 1930s or 1940s dress with periwinkle bow details paired with a yellow tilt hat covered in gold sequins

The dress is a little earlier than my usual era, but I love the floral print and it is a very comfortable dress on a day when I’m feeling puffy (which you can see I was). I’m curious – how would you style it?
