Perhaps it was the past week of constant grey skies and rain or… it might be the impending festive period and I’m dreaming about talking a holiday? Either way, I’m completely smitten with this 1950s vacation dress!

1950s floral vacation dress by Vera Borea

The deep-square neckline. The cap sleeves. The gloriously full skirt and let’s not fail to mention the beautiful floral print! Can you imagine a more perfect vacation dress?

I’m picturing it in a blue and green floral… how about you?
