Primary State

Outfit Details: Top (Dress) Modcloth // Skirt: Vintage - Gift from Vintage & Gee // Scarf: Thrifted // Brooch: Antique Mall // Shoes: UO





Ello there,
It's Tuesday and apparently I am a week ahead of the game when it comes to dressing for Memorial Day next Monday....or so says my husband...hehe.  Oops.  Anyhow, in our neighborhood this trail that you see above - which is right up the street from my house - has finally been un-gated and opened up for more exploring - so if I weren't in heels and a skirt that is exactly what I would have done.  Methinks it might lead to the top of the mountain we live on, so I am so curious to find out.

These last couple of days have been uneventful and pretty much full of just lazing around & working on a couple of DIYs I have going on at the moment.  Spring always puts me DIY mode, ya know?  So hopefully by Thursday, one of them will make it onto here:)  Short and sweet is the name of the game today darlings as I must get up off this couch and go outside.  It's just way too pretty to stay in.

Until then!
Love bunches,


  1. I just love all of the detail each one of your outfits boasts. You never simply wear a skirt and a shirt. You have a top with a lovely collar detail, a skirt with a wonderful print and buttons down the front, hair done up in a beautiful scarf-it is perfection! I'm definitely planning on getting out and enjoying the weather today also, I only wish I lived next to as much loveliness as the countryside around you :)!

  2. You look so adorable! And that would make a good Memorial day outfit ;) I love the skirt especially. And that trail sounds fun...I can't wait to hear where it leads to! :)

  3. Marisa you look gorgeous as always ! Can't wait for your DIY posts !!! Have a fabby day ! XX

  4. Love this look! That tank is amazing. I'm glad you are enjoying the sunshine : )

  5. love this!!

  6. beautiful outfit! Love it and the hair too!

  7. You look so cute and summery! Have you ever done a post on different head scarves and how to wear them? Because if you haven't, you should, you are the queen of cute head-adorments haha!
    Anyway, thanks for you kind words on my last post, I hate to be so grumpy on the blog, but sometimes its hard to be chipper even if you just need to write a paragraph to go along with some silly pictures!
    Also, I just signed up to hopefully sponsor you in May! It was slightly confusing though because I know you said the large ad space was full for June, so I would like to do it in July! I already paid (if I am approved etc), but it still said my ad would start May 22nd, so just wanted to let you know its for July! I should probably be doing this via email, but since I was already here...
    Let me know if that makes send and if I need to do anything more! Can't wait to work more with you!
