The Seersucker Ride and Social was scheduled on one of the first hot-but-not-unbearably-so days this season and felt like a utopian fantasy conjured from the Gatsby era. A crowd of shiny happy people–including a smattering of adorable and happy children–drank, danced, and napped in the grass for hours. If you have never been to Hillwood, you are missing out. It’s a short walk, bikeride, or drive from Mt. Pleasant Street and feels completely disconnected from the city hubbub.
I wore a dress that reminds me of a picnic with a dash of Vivienne Westwood tailoring at the bust, and great vintage shoes you’ll see in the above and in the last shot, one of my favorite pictures of the day.
