Jackson, Johnston & Roe

I love it when there's an interesting story behind a name, especially when it's a simple tribute to the women in your life. The ladies behind Jackson, Johnston & Roe, for example, simply strung their mother's maiden names together and their Brooklyn-based baby was born! (Insert little know fact here: Dalena Vintage is actually a combination of my name with my two best lady friends, D'Arcy and Nancy.)

And oh how happy they've made fashionistas with their laid back frocks and easy-to-wear separates. It's nice to invest in pieces you can just throw on and instantly look put together, no?

Can I please throw a tea party in this space? Hot tea. Fizzy Swedish mimosas. Thick clotted cream. Fresh strawberry jam. Flaky Scones. If you're drooling at this point, have a look at Kitchen by Michele Cranston. Best. Cookbook. Ever.

Speaking of cooking, wouldn't you just love to put one of these aprons to use right now? Bake a batch of deliciousness, then throw on one of those dresses and lose all your worries?

Aren't these images just lovely? They're from Riley Salyards, one of three ladies behind Jackson, Johnston & Roe. LOVE + An extra helping of hearts.
