A history lesson...

For Memorial Weekend, Liam and I along with my cousin Doc, Aunt Donna, Mother, Sisters Michelle, Christie, and my niece Kayla...took a tour through the past to visit some sites of significance to our family history. I learned a lot about my mom's side of the family that I did not know. It was really interesting, and the weather was beautiful! I had fun wearing my outfit and making Liam take lots of pictures!

Oh, and I had my hair cut and colored on Sat. in Little Italy. I LOVE it!

Dress: vintage dress from Etsy Mama Vintage c. late 30s-1940. (it was worn as a wedding dress sometime in probably the very early 40s.)

It's hard to tell, but those are little crochet heart pockets on the chest.

Vintage Coach bag: thrifted

Booties: Urban Outfitters (a long time ago.)

the family cemetery at dusk...most of these photos were equally creepy. this one kind of spooks me, but I really like how that sun is setting behind me, along with that fantastic Celtic cross.

Enjoy! Hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend!

Oh thank you very much!

I'm glad the oxfords looked good.I endured wearing them long enough to have these photos taken. they have 4" heels and I was walking through a farm...I almost had to be slung over someone's shoulder, but it was worth it. :)
