Two Stylish Kays: What I Wore: Vintage Pleated Midi Dress

What I Wore: Vintage Pleated Midi Dress

Monday, May 15, 2017




One of my favorite days of the year is Mother's Day! It's the designated day of the year to celebrate my mom and let her know how much she means to me. I hope that you great Mother's Day too, no matter the circumstance. Whether you spent the day with your mom, spoke to her on the phone or reminisced about the sweet memories you shared with her, always celebrate your mom on Mother's Day!  

Our usual tradition is attend church, then go out to eat brunch at her favorite restaurant Adele's Cajun Experience. Well this year her favorite restaurant, became the favorite for everyone else, because their Mother's Day brunch was completely booked a week in advance. I was bummed but I was able to get reservations at Brine's Seafood Shack, a restaurant that I thought she would love.  Let's just say, being from New Orleans, we are very harsh critics when it comes to seafood.


Of course, I love getting dressed for the occasion, so I wore this vintage pleated dress that I scored from Goodwill of North Georgia, Decatur location. This dress was the color tag of the day, so it was an additional 50% off. My final cost was under $4. When I first saw this dress on the rack, I fell in love with the print and the pleated skirt. It is so lovely. I styled it with my satin Nina strappy sandals, also thrifted for only $3.

  9. For starters, I love that dress! You totally rocked it. Also, I feel you on being harsh when it comes to seafood. I am a Florida girl so seafood is like a main staple in my diet.
