Hello from northernest North Yorkshire, on the internet connection from hell!
After my Grannie died 3 years ago, I didn't think I'd get to visit Whitby, Yorkshire, much more, but somehow my dad's hometown has remained a family hub of sorts in the UK, and this year all of us (my parents, two sisters and I) headed over for the first proper family vacation in a while.

I got my mom to bring me some summer clothes to tide over the next few months, and promptly had to try them all on again. Wearing this dress brought me lots of comments from my mom about it's summery-ness and supposedly inappropriate length... making me feel like a total teenager again. But really, I just can't wait to ditch the tights!

That dress is such a lovely pattern and, in all respect to your mum, a perfect length. And those tights are fantastic on you but I understand being ready to be done with them. Great look!

Love that outfit! The pattern on the dress is lovely! Also, my mom likes to tell me whenever she thinks what I am wearing is too short, even though I am weellll into my 20s! Guess it's a mom thing!

I love that green coat!

A Certain Vintage said...

loving the 90s vibe of it and the gorgeous green coat. Somewhere between ultra pretty and a bit grunge. I can't wait to ditch tights either but think it'll be another while yet :(

@Rebecca: I know! Never mind that I'm almost 30!

The skirt looks exactly right and the green coat really pops. And you look lovely as always!

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

I keep having the great skirt/dress length debate whenever I pull things out of my closet... This dress of yours is a total keeper, though!

I am glad you're in Yorkshire with your family. I do hope you're all having a wonderful time :)
