Sister Style: Summer Favorites

1111Hi friends! Do you have favorite wardrobe pieces that you find yourself wearing over and over again? We do for sure! In the summer we tend to lean heavy on pretty embroidery pieces. This vintage green embroidery dress is one of the items I pack it for every warm weather trip. So pretty and easy to wear!

  • You gals are so adorable! And Emma, that dress is absolutely perfect!


  • such beautiful embroidery! i particularly like the green on emma!

  • I love that floral jacket! So cool. I love how your outfits always match just a little bit, but are still a so different.

  • Emma, the green embroidered dress that you wear is actually a traditional Mexican dress. I wouldn’t necessarily call it vintage though. You can typically hop over the border and buy them in Mexico in the tourist areas. In some latin countries women still wear them. And out here in the southwest border states, it’s not uncommon find them in thrift stores. I actually have a full length one hanging in my closet that my mom gave to me. She bought it when she was living in Mexico before she was married. I love it, but can never seem to find an occasion to wear the dress. But I’ve always loved to see how often you wear it. It makes me smile. 🙂

  • Y’all both look so awesome! You can both pull off your sunnies so well (if I tried on either style, I would just look silly! Trust me – I’ve tried)! Emma’s sandals are perfect and I’m definitely a fan of Elsie’s ring cocktail! All of them are unique and lovely!

  • I like yours clotchees! 🙂

    p.s. Elsie, please, take a look in facebook.;)

  • Everything looks gorgeous!
    Quite honestly, I would not be able to wear this clothes.
    Here in Rio de Janeiro (Brasil) is so hot that the less the better…

  • So random but I love the way you’ve tied your belt here. Somehow I can’t manage to tie a belt like that without it being super bulky and unflattering!

  • Both of your outfits are amazing! I love all of your rings Elsie!
