The 1950’s Style Outdoor Trekking Dress by Silly Old Sea Dog is so whimsical. When I received it I was super excited to Do a playful photo set with a matching theme. I created a fun mini camping set at the studio to play up the print. The print includes several adorable illustrations; Bears, deer, fishing poles, Evergreen trees, life vests, trucker hats, Jeeps, and guitars to name a few.
Silly Old Sea Dog carries a variety of adorable belts as well. The brown flower belt they paired with this dress is just perfect for it. The Floral chiffon detail in the center adds a girly touch while giving a separation in the print to create a flattering cinched waist look. The belt is an all around super stretchy elastic band which fastens with hidden snaps under the flower accent. I definitely recommend ordering your Silly Old Sea Dog dress with a coordinating belt.
The design of the dress is a classic 1950’s Hepburn style. Featuring a High cut neckline, sleeveless arms, fitted bodice and waist, with a flared skirt. The gathered style skirt gives some built in fullness but can also be worn with a short petticoat for some added flare. I choose to go without one (which looks great as well) for this shoot as to not take up to much of the set with my skirt.
The length is a shorter skirt landing just above my knee. ( I am 5’6″) The perfect cut for a sunny summer day…
Or a warm summer night of catching fire flies. 😉
The Dress is 100% cotton, lightweight, and comfortable. A center hidden zipper in the back makes it perfect for mess free hair and makeup. This dress is available on the Silly Old Sea Dog website in UK sizes 6-18.
