What I Wore: Hidden Treasure

vest: Hinge via Nordstrom Rack
dress: Vintage
shoes: Jessica Simpson
bag: Asos

Last Sunday after brunch the boyfriend and I came across this beautiful park, which  we never knew existed! The park is lovely with orange trees, beautiful fountains, huge shady trees, and even has a green house.  The fact that we did not know this park existed and that we came across it simply by chance or luck makes it all that more special.  The same goes with this dress, I actually found it at my house in the garage as it was ready to be thrown out or "donated".  Turns out this dress used to me my mom's when she was young, I love that every time she sees me wearing it she gets emotional and feels as if she went back in time.

Mel and I had recently discovered a nearby park too which is now a favorite spot! Great story too about this dress being your mom's. It definitely should be a piece you hold on to! I love that you added the denim vest over the dress as it gives off a 90's vibe. Very cute!
