Retro Summer Style: Aquamarine and Gingham

In the virtual wasteland that is this summer's network television schedule, I have been really excited about The Astronaut Wives Club - I love learning more about the 1960's, and I was excited to see Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah from Chuck) and JoAnna Garcia Swisher (Ariel from Once Upon a Time) among the stars. When I found out the series is based on a book I knew I had to add it to my summer reading list. This week, I'm channeling 60's summer style - aquamarine, shirtwaist dresses, and classic feminine details like gingham prints and scalloped edges.
