32 Looks Good On You (ft. Pastello Dresses)

Although I had originally hoped it would arrive for the second-best holiday of the year, National Donut Day (obviously, Christmas comes first), there have been so many shipping delays lately that it did not even come CLOSE. It was all A-OK, however! Instead, this adorable handmade dress from Pastello Dress on Etsy came just in time for my birthday weekend!

I have been a fan of Vici for a while now whether it be her blog or her Etsy shop Instagram and was so excited to finally order a dress of my own! Vici makes dresses in the vintage style and while each dress is one of a kind, she makes them in a range of sizes to include vintage-lovin' gals of all shapes and sizes. It seemed like fate that this donut and sprinkle covered dress was a bigger size and matched my measurements!

I typically don't care to even acknowledge my birthday and considering the challenges that these last 10 or 11 months have brought me, I certainly didn't have a birthday celebration on the top of my mind. Things just haven't been going my way these days and though things are difficult to endure right now, I decided I needed to get away for a bit so last weekend, my sister and I took a trip to Kittery, ME for two nights.

We stayed at a cute cabin-style motel (Kittery Inn & Suites) and enjoyed their outdoor pool, nearby beaches, and ate all kinds of Maine/summer treats in addition to some delicious donuts at Lovebird Donuts. Because what would my birthday be without donuts?!

OBVIOUSLY, this dress was destined for the trip to Lovebird and I just had to take photos with their delicious confections! How yummy do these donuts look? Trust me, they were even more delicious than they look!

How has your summer been going so far, peanuts? Tell me about your plans! This summer is vastly different from others, I am sure, but there are still ways to make the most of it. If you're getting creative with your summer, I'd love to hear all about it!
