Guest Post - Junebugs and Georgia Peaches

Hey y'all!  We're June + Amelia from Junebugs and Georgia Peaches!  If you don't know us, we're a couple of quirky, southern, big dress wearin' bottle redheads who are an amalgam of retro + modern style.  Amelia lives in Augusta, Georgia and June lives in Nashville,Tennessee and we co-write our blog long distance.  We absolutely love Jana, she is incredibly stylish and always has the sweetest things to say if you're having an "off day" so we were totally flattered when she asked us to guest post on her blog.  Also, we've been lurking her wedding photos on instagram and they are AMAZING!

It just so happened that we got to see each other over the weekend because June is currently planning her wedding so we decided to celebrate the 4th of July a little bit early!

Happy ((Early)) 4th of July!

Meet the Tie Sleeve Lucy Day Dress
We both got one of these adorable dresses from Le Bomb Shop (they look like something Lucy + Ethel would wear!) and decided we would play with some sparklers in the park, it'd been about a month since we'd gotten to see each other, so we were excited to say the least!

Say hello to the Tie Sleeve Lucy Day Dress in Red + White Polka Dot and Blue + White Polka Dot.  We love shirt-dresses, because they seem so effortlessly "put together".  When you're a busy lady, it's nice to have pieces in your wardrobe that you know will be stylish and are still sensible for a hectic schedule.  When I (June) first got into buying vintage, I bought a ton of shirt-dresses because they were so easy to find and very inexpensive.  Even if it's a reproduction,  I feel like there's nothing better or more figure-flattering than a good, patterned shirt-dress.  One thing we noticed with this dress is that it is a tight fit across the bust. So depending on your bust and waist measurements you may have to size up accordingly.

We wore shorter petticoats under this dress for a 50s style, but could definitely see rocking it without a petticoat for a more 40s vibe.  We loved the puff sleeves the tie detail on the cuff and it's awesome that you can adjust the ties to your arm size.

We had such an amazing time hanging out in the park, celebrating the 4th of July a few days early and almost catching our hair on fire.  We left with sore thumbs because it was windy and we couldn't get the lighter to work, and went through 3 boxes of sparklers while taking photos, but it was totally worth it haha.

Sideote: this company offers free U.S. shipping on all orders (no minimum) and free international shipping on orders over $250 and Melissa + Ben were also sweet enough to give us a promo code to share with y'all so for 10% off until July 3rd use promo code "JBGP10".

We hope we see you around Junebugs and Georgia Peaches! What are you wearing for the 4th of July?
