The Dear Creatures lookbooks are always something to look forward to, dontcha think? For fall it was 60s Girl Scouts and now it's this sort of creepy-living-in-a-doll-house sort of vibe mixed with just a smidge of good ol' Americana (they say it's Parisian, and I suppose it is, but the stripes and chambray just seem more American to me - maybe it's the red, white and blue of the photos?). I especially love those high waisted shorts. I think this summer might be all about the shorts. We'll see. I would also take that striped dress in about a hot second.
I see a bit of sailor inspiration going on here as well. I've thrifted a few spring-like sailory pieces lately but they've all been thrown into a bag marked "spring" and put away for now. It'll be so much fun opening up that bag once the weather warms up. I always forget half of what I throw in there and opening it is a little bit like Christmas morning.
