Housewife dress

I found my housewife dress yesterday and fell in love with the pattern and the colors. It's heavy polyester/cotton blend though and it will stay in my closet until fall. I can't wait to explore all the layering possibilities but until then I had to give it the plaid shirt treatment!

On its own it looks dated and of course that's why I like it but it's also a challenge to make it look more modern.

Outfit details : Dress thrifted, plaid shirt H&M, bag & jewellery thrifted, shoes local market


I can't get enough of the subtle colors and the daises. So beautiful retro feeling. Already one of my favorite dresses.
