Sister Style: Summer Dresses

Sister StyleSister StyleSister StyleHey, friends! Feels like summer is FINALLY in full swing here. We've had so much rain this season that it's felt like such a different summer than we're used to. Nice to have some bright and sunny days to get outside and enjoy. 🙂

Random fact: do you see my (Emma's) dress? I recently thrifted it for $3! It had long, poof-y sleeves that I altered myself since I've been getting more and more into sewing this year. I just loved the length and bottom hem of this dress, but the sleeves made it feel really costume-y. But, easy and quick fix. Elsie and I grew up thrifting together (A LOT!) so I love it when I can still find new-to-me items that I can add to my wardrobe. I'm also crazy for Elsie's flea market purse—love those stitched florals!

  • Loving the thrifted outfit. I actually blog a lot about my thrift finds since they are some of my proudest purchases.


  • I love Elsie’s pink dress! I also can’t believe that you thrifted Emma’s dress for only $3! I’ve been wanting to get more into thrifting and altering my own clothes and you’ve definitely inspired me!


  • She did. She got the itch and gave it a cut a few weeks ago. 🙂


  • I’m with you on the humidity, it’s brutal right now! Still, I’ll take it over cold weather so I’m not complaining, but man does it make my hair look so flat and greasy. Boo!



  • I’m loving the thrifted dress. I wish I knew who it was buy. I adore it! I’m all about finding vintage pieces! Amazing find.

  • Gah Elsie I can’t handle that dress and purse combo! Too perfect!

  • Obsessed with both of your outfits. Love your personal styles.


  • I loved the outfits!
    Emma, your dress is gorgeous.
    I’m also getting into sewing this year and I’m always fixing and modifying some clothes. It’s so good to give a new fresh air to a piece that used to be buried in the closet!

    I also loved the color of Elsie’s dress. And the sunnies are SO COOL!

  • One of my favorite things about reading sister style is seeing all the different cool brands and places where you bought all your things from. I love to see vintage and flea market! In my opinion that’s what style’s all about; combining different things from different places in a way that is unique to you! You guys look great!

  • I love that both looks are different but complement each other so well!

    xo, Liz
