Peach Peasant Princess Dress

The spring foliage is in full bloom at the historic Greystone Mansion, in Beverly Hills. This magnificent neo-classical mansion was built in the 1920's and sits atop acres of beautiful, lush greenery. The grounds are so serene, but especially the delicate lily pond of this particular courtyard, as it glistens in the center. Filled with beautifully colored fish and floating florals, I had to dip my toe in!

What I love most about warmer weather is that I can wear my favorite sun dresses - and sometimes I just love to let my hair down and go barefoot. This Candy Jones 1950's day dress I got from Meow Vintage in Long Beach, is my current favorite. It's made of light peach gingham cotton with a peasant princess style pattern, and little flowers embroidered throughout. This scene reminded me of Marilyn Monroe by Sam Shaw, which is one of my favorites series. As a modern day Sam Shaw or Milton Greene, Tom Stratton always seems to capture those candid moments and illustrates our vision flawlessly.
