Happy Easter! Are you celebrating today? I'm sitting at the coffeeshop around the corner from my apartment, watching another laptop-laiden customer tap his feet super enthusiastically to the music playing on the radio. It looks like it's about to rain, and I walked here, so I may have to write this post in two pieces. But at any rate - I'm hopping on the wagon for one of spring's hottest trends - the denim day dress!
I found this rad little number at one of my new favorite spots in Saint Louis, Mesa Home. Nestled into a cozy storefront on Cherokee Street, Mesa Home offers a selection of vintage clothing and accessories, as well as some locally-crafted goods. Friends have been telling me to get my tush in the door for weeks now, and last weekend I finally made it in. Anni, the owner, is the sweetest lady ever, and she reworks a number of the vintage pieces you'll find on the racks. This dress, for instance, had pink accents and was much longer than Anni altered it to. It's the perfect length for me now, and because it's lightweight, I plan to wear it all summer long.
