summer days driftin' away, to uh-oh those summer nights.

here is a highly romanticized version of "summer in florida." sometimes it IS this good. but most days it's too humid, too hot and you would rather be inside soaking in air conditioning. i guess you just have to be in the mood for sweltering weather, and dressed right. i was a typical florida gal on this day... i threw on easy breezy overalls, snatched up some perfect vintage and then met matt and his friends at the beach with some muffins. 

okay, so here is a little open discussion i've been stuck on for a bit--- two piece or one piece swimsuit? i invested in this little number up above because i think one piece bathing suits are ADORABLE and also classy. sometimes i feel like my body is too sacred to flaunt on a beach for total strangers. but i also feel a little bit granny in the one piece. what do you guys wear all summer? 

overalls: vintage
shoes: steve madden

there's a place up ahead and i'm goin', just as fast as my feet can fly.

hello from my new fringe and i! :) i had bangs in 2009 and decided to go back in time a little bit. it was fun revealing them to matt because he said it took him back to when we were first dating! gotta tell you though, waking up with crazy hair is NOT a fun thing, so they may be short lived. it looks like i stuck my hand in an electric socket every morning.

i wore this saturday afternoon ... we snuck out in between the neverending rain storms to take these! i usually despise tight shorts but for some reason these don't make me feel uncomfortable. plus they're the prettiest floral pattern i've seen ♥ this week is going to be very stressful over here between finals and moving, but i will keep you updated! thank you for reading, your comments always make me smile.

she was a runaway, from a town so far away.

lazy dayzzz. navy, red, beige & jean is one of my favorite color combinations. throw some stripes from 2020AVE and some polka dots into the mix and YOWZA!

it has been non-stop raining here and all i want to do is cozy up in bed. sometimes rainy weeks are relaxing. this weekend we're painting and packing [fun, right?] matt has monday off and i am giving myself off so we can take a mini vacation on saturday & sunday night after we paint! i love early mornings with a coffee in-hand when it is just me, matt and the wide open road. cheesy, but true! what are your favorite weekend things?

p.s. lots of new vintage in my store since last night! :)

blouse: for sale in my store
