Let me just start by saying this post has a few more pictures than
I normally include. I blame it on this new outfit for which I am
completely obsessed, head over heels in love. The dress and matching jacket, a recent Etsy find for me, are a rare maxi dress outfit collaboration by Lillie Rubin and Don Luis de Espana. After wearing this dress that belonged to my mother, I set out on a mission to find more equally fabulous styles by the designer. I've always adored that dress, but I think I am now at the stage of full blown unhealthily obsessed over Lillie Rubin design. Two things I love just about more than anything when it comes to fashion are bright color and classic vintage design, and this outfit has it all. If you share this same affinity with me, be sure to check out Diana's Etsy shop. I was not familiar with Don Luis de Espana before now, but after a quick Google search, I found this little bit of info, this novelty print dress, and this awesome maxi dress. Definitely now a Don fan.
For a quick night on the town, Father's Day style, most wonderful man in the world and I took it to NoDa for a some tasty craft brew. First stop, one of our favs (co-owned by an super cool friend of mine), Birdsong Brewing Co.
Everybody loves large and in charge Jenga.
We then hopped over to NoDa Brewing Company for some more tasty. Sorry I don't have any pictures. Things were starting to get a little out of focus by now. Thank goodness, however, for Auto Burger & Fry Guys. I am not lying to you when I say I think I had the BEST vegetarian burger of my life straight from this... old milk truck?

Vintage + Craft + Burger = Me all smiley happy.
