One Swainky Couple: Classic with a Vintage Feel

Classic with a Vintage Feel


K: I've always loved anything with a vintage feel to it. I grew up playing in my grandmother's attic, exploring all of my mother's dresses and colorful costume jewelry. When I saw this butter yellow dress, the silhouette felt classic with a vintage flair. I definitely plan on packing it for Puerto Rico (we leave in just two weeks!!) because it was such a breezy little dress and managed to keep me cool for the duration of the day.  Brandon and I had the best morning shooting this look with our friend and photographer Lauren Bosse and we're so thankful that she reached out to us, wanting to capture our style. If you missed Monday's post, be sure to check out the photos here. 




B: Polka dots became widely popular in American fashion in the early 1920's. Albeit, mostly women wore polka dots in its early beginnings but the trend has moved to a universal pattern of preference for men, ranging from Elton John in concert to George Clooney in fashion ads. Wearing polka dots during our photoshoot at this 1918 farm house on the Lyndon B. Johnson ranch was only fitting.


K: I love being "on trend" but I also love being different. There's nothing better than feeling like your outfit is unique, in the best way possible. I felt that way with this dress, simply because the stores seem to be saturated with blue and white stripes, pom poms, off the shoulder pieces, and tassels. I love all of these things just as much as the next girl, but there was something special about this dress when I put it on. Part of our goal with the blog is to allow you to find your "special something", which is why we always want to provide you with an option to shop the look. Let me know which one of these vintage inspired dresses is your favorite! I'm personally dying over this gorgeous SEA midi dress that's on sale. Leave a comment below and have a wonderful Wednesday!




B: I finally gave in and purchased a new pair of Aldo oxfords. Katherine makes fun of me for holding onto a pair of shoes for far too long. My last two pairs were loved for so long that their seams were breaking apart and my brightly colored socks were visible through the holes. Needless to say, it was time to invest. Funny enough, this new pair is actually a dark shade of brown, despite looking black in the photos. Everyone has their preference, but I have always leaned towards neutrals and browns with the idealization that they accent more of my preferred everyday style of clothing than a typical black oxford.



 On Katherine: Daniel Cremieux dress, straw hat, Nine West shoes (sold out in brown, black pair on sale here),

On Brandon: Nordstrom shirt, J. Crew pants, Aldo shoes, Shinola belt
