Hi there! I'm Melissa, and I’m delighted to be stopping by with a guest post -usually you can find me over at Oh, My Darling. Emily and I are calling this little feature “A Dress and a Ditty” because I’ll be featuring a great song and a few dresses that somehow relate to the song. I hope you enjoy it!
This song is called “Let’s Get Out of This Country,” and it is performed by the super-fun and talented band Camera Obscura. The lyrics and overall mood of this song bring to mind a whimsical little jet-setting jaunt with your lover, to somewhere fun and romantic (Paris, perhaps?).
If my fella and I were able to blow off work and fly overseas, I’d be sure to pack a dress like The Line Blue Cotton Dress by After Showers, as this beautiful handmade dress would pair perfectly with a pair of comfortable Toms or sandals and a roomy canvas bag – perfect for a busy day of sightseeing and shopping.For a dressier night in the evening – let’s say we’re going to a 5-star French restaurant and then topping off the night at a swanky jazz club (is jazz even popular in France? I suppose that’s irrelevant to this little fantasy journey), I’d love to wear the Summer Spritzer dress from Modcloth. With just a simple little necklace and a pair of glamorous shoes that we just happened to find at a great boutique earlier in the day, this dress would make a magical night in another country all the more unforgettable.
Thanks Melissa! You can look forward to the A Dress and a Ditty series here on FMA! Be sure to check out Melissa's darling blog, Oh My Darling, and share some bloggy love!
