What I Wore: My Summer Aesthetic

Inevitably, every summer, I long for my aesthetic to be "sexed up farmer's daughter".  It's a look that evokes easy summer days lounging on big porches, afternoons frolicking in wildflower fields, evenings watching lightning bugs flicker in the waning light, and sultry summer nights flirting under a full moon.  I mean, that's what I get from it anyway. 

Back at the end of September, Sean and I took a road trip out to Montana to visit Glacier National Park.  Since we were staying in a VRBO out in the country, I brought along this peasant dress for photos.  We had a blast on the trip, so I look forward to sharing it all with you.  I'm making it through my short list week by week in the hopes that I can catch up and get to all the fun travel posts I have to share.

Ditsy Floral Crinkle Gauze Peasant Dress - Torrid

Floral Headband - DIY


This was one of those shoots where I felt super cute at the time, but I had a panic attack while we took the photos and ended up hating the way I looked in them for months.  I couldn't even bring myself to look at them again for a long while.

But here we are eight months later and I don't think they are so bad.  In fact, I think they are worth sharing anyway because I know how cute I felt in the moment.

The dress was sold out before I even left for my trip, but Torrid did have a few peasant dresses in a similar style that summer.  I hope they introduce more in different prints.  The crinkle gauze fabric traveled well, is super lightweight, and perfect for summer.  I ordered a size 3 and found it was very generously cut.  I probably could have sized down.  There is elastic in the waist and sleeves, but it is not too tight or restricting.  Plus, the neckline can be tied however you see fit.

I paired it with my nude slip-on sneakers, rose gold earrings, and a floral headband I made.

It was so much fun to spend some quiet days on the porch reading and listening to the rain.  As pandemic vacations go, it was pretty perfect - no people around, lots of nature, animal sightings, and an easy schedule.
