The trees spoke to me and I followed. Even the swamp beckons with its long cypress fingers stretching towards me. I woke to the still quiet of the swamp, knowing I would hear the trees in my dream once more. I still listen and hope that they will come alive and be more than just a dream.
My love affair with this hat continues, the color is just perfection. This dress and vest combo is one of my favorites, both are thrifted. Of course I had to add my favorite Zero UV glasses. I also wore these old Urban Outfitter wooden platforms; I love them but rarely wear them since they make me so much taller then my husband.
I wanted to add the picture below even though it was an outtake. I loved how hazy it turned out and is probably my favorite.
We were able to spend Father’s Day with David’s family this year. We were also able to celebrate with David’s grandfather who is basically his father. We had a great time with his family. It was quite a day! We took lots of pictures and was able to snag a picture of David with his two brothers which hasn’t happened in years.
We spent Father’s Day in Bayonne, New Jersey at the Kennedy Street Park. Kennedy Street Park is the largest and prettiest park in Bayonne. Alice Jane and her cousins had a blast in the sprinklers and playground. I will miss their parks and all the local free sprinklers.
I have more Jersey pictures to share that I’m really excited about. They will probably be up later this week.
Where have ya’ll been traveling this year?
I’ve always been obsessed with these trees. This is the exact location I wanted my wedding but it rained that day so it wouldn’t have worked out. It’s still one of my favorite spots and is an ideal spot for pictures.
I recently ordered this hat from Forever 21, it was on sale as well as free shipping; you can’t beat that (unfortunately it’s no longer on sale). I recently bought a different boater hat but I loved that this was a wider brim then that one and I love the color. I’ve never seen a boater in this color and knew that it would go great with my wardrobe. I picked up this dress earlier that day before these pictures, I had just enough time to wash it first. I thought this dress might be a little small but knew if it was I could wear it as a kimono. The dress ended up fitting perfectly; I love the style and it has a great mix of forties and nineties feel. There are some button hole issues but that’s to be expected in thrift finds and it’s such a easy fix that i’m not worried.
What thrift finds have ya’ll been loving lately?
