nineandsixteen ok... second selfie in a new dress pic in one week isn't my thing but I had to... I bought this gingham one today and jimmy insists I look like I'm in an Amish uniform... I'm somewhat inclined to agree... Hahaha #imstillkeepingit #imnotalwaysafanofhisshinygolfshirts #cantwinthemall #westillloveeachotheranyway #lifeisnofunifyoucantlaughatyourself 1d
  •   nineandsixteen @gabemetzger with dresses, mine too. I love vintage inspired silhouettes. Especially for everyday dresses! Hit the checkout button! ( read reviews on fit, I feel like it runs a bit small, but I still stuck with my normal size.) 1d
  •   nineandsixteen @gabemetzger on another note.. I need to get in with u soon!! Will be calling Tuesday, hope early June is completely booked!!! 1d
  •   wendymck9 It's adorable! 1d
  •   423angela @nineandsixteen Amish can't show their arms like that or wear prints, either. You're good!! 1d
  •   angelaburdge I said I was really done after the pink ann taylor dress. My husband is going to kill me and confiscate my phone so I can't see anymore pretty things to buy! 1d
  •   katharynlowry I love it!! 1d
  •   traceydzen You should try the llbean signature poplin dress for a fantastic fit on that silhouette you like. I have the navy and it's super flattering :) 1d
  •   chmelloan I think it is DARLING! But you know my love of blue gingham! 22h

nineandsixteen Thanks for all your input! Think I'm going to leave them off for summer and invest in new drapes in the fall. the length of the drapes bothered me more than anything. I want to mount them up high... Here is another angle that gets all of the windows in one shot. 2w
  •   quiltmom4131 Naked windows for summer will be great! 2w
  •   stacywlewis I'm a little late to the discussion, but I've done both...with drapery panels and without...and I think they really add warmth and a finishing touch to a room! 2w
  •   cls531 Have you thought of something on just the bottom half of the windows? Cottage shutters maybe, that you could open some days when you're in the mood? They could do an inside mount & you would still see your moulding. They're also very colonial. After a while if you get bored, you could add panels as well. Just a thought @nineandsixteen 2w
  •   kab64 I was thinking shutters, too. Lots of good options! 2w
  •   newenglandliving Beautiful space!! 2w
  •   15009farmhouse That is a great look for summer then you can "regroup" in the fall... 2w
  •   redmondsc I just took my drapes down for the summer too and metaphorically my life feels less cluttered and chaotic. I should have done it a lot sooner! 8h
