Outfit Details:
Trench coat: thrifted
1970s blue floral wrap dress: thrifted
Orange tights: Target
Brown loafers: thrifted

This is actually what I wore today. I only say this because often times when I post, I post outfits that I wore in the past few days so nothing is ever really "current" but whatever. Anyway, today Grant and I took it easy. We had a leisurely brunch with some of my most favorite ladies (NatalieShayneEmilyMorgan--this is you!!), I had the strawberry french toast which was tasty and great. Afterwards we went South to visit a thrift store and then drive around to the house that I used to live in when I was in Kindergarten to 3rd grade. Super nostalgic. We walked to this park that I remember being soooo far away when I was small and it was in actuality a block away from my old place. Oh to be small and not comprehend how far things really are.

Afterwards we headed to the hills and swallows were everywhere swooping in and out of the wild flowers and grass. As we were walking I stopped since something caught my eye and it was the smallest field mouse cutely peeking from a thicket of tall grass. No picture since I wasn't fast enough but I think I have some sort of cute radar, I always notice things like that.

  1. Yay mini road trip-- sounds like you had a fun & leisurely day. I like the bright tights paired with the neutral socks and loafers. Unfortunately had a mouse in my apartment this week, not as cute as one out in a field. :(

    Amazing heart cut out in the tree too, wonder how someone did that.

  2. It's sort of like going back to my lower school building and realizing just how small it was, but back then it seemed to be huge!

    Looks like you had such a fun day! xoxo

  3. I love that first photo of you, pretty girl! Your photos always make me feel more and more determined to move to California. The westcoast is calling me all the way in the "far east."

    I love walking through parks and fields especially on beautiful days. You've captured some really good detailed shots. The loveheart cut out in the tree is lovely (no pun intended).

  16. These photos are so lovely (that dress!!) and this sounds like such a perfect day. I love your story about the park.. When I was little it was a really big deal when I was allowed to walk to "High St Market" for penny candy, & my big brother always had to come.. Looking back, the market is like 3 blocks away @ the most. Hehe

    This park trip looks so fun. Rian and I had a hike planned this week but it randomly snowed and ruined it! So sad. Sigh.

  24. These photos are so sunny and happy and lovely. I love how you paired the tights with the dress, since it picks up the similar orangey-pink from your dress. You always look so relaxed and put together.
