Starr Garden and Lychee

Outfit Details: Dress: c/o Cute Vintage // Hat: UO // Bag: Antique Mall // Shoes: Thrifted








Finally...I am back, nestled safe and sound in my home sweet home.  It's been one fine week away and I spent the latter half of it in Philly as my hubs was away on business.  So perfectly it concluded with an afternoon spent on South Street upon his arrival home.  We thrifted, we park strolled, we froyo-ed - I indulged with a concoction of lychee, cake batter, taro, raspberry, pistachio yogurt topped with blackberry, coconut, cookie dough, kiwi, jimmies and mochi.  Yes, this girl likes a bit of everything. 

So that's that.  We made it through a bad storm and tornado warning on the drive home - and if you know me, tornados are one of the things I am most scared of in life...haha.  I was a complete nut the whole ride home checking the weather channel app every other second to assure that we would be ok. Goodness gracious, I do have the tendency to make things more dramatic than they probably need to be.

Alright darlings, wishing you one perfect Saturday.   I'm off to catch up now:)  See ya soon!

Love bunches,

  7. that bag... that bag... THAT BAG. you've featured it before, yes? it sure is beautiful :)

    oh no, i'm sorry your ride home was so upsetting! i might be odd, but i once drove through a rainstorm/ tornado in the countryside and found it a very uplifting experience. i'm just glad you made it home safely.

    1. I wish I could be that laid back when it comes to thunderstorms and extreme weather. It's just not in my blood I guess...ha. I actually just picked up that bag at my local antique mall ...first time on here, but I do have another one that is similar:)

  12. Storm+tornado sounds so frightening! Nature sure has a scaring power. Lately Italy has been hit by a major earthquake and even I felt a little tremor even if the epicenter was hundreds and hundreds of km away. Scary, I tell you.
    ANyway you look lovely as always :) your shoes are gorgeous!!

  13. To be honest I would probably freak out over a weather warning like that too! Scary! I love these colours on you! Your shoes are too cute! :) It looks so nice and warm where you are, perfect watermelon weather I bet! :D (I've gone a little watermelon mad!) Enjoy the sunshine sweet Marisa! :D xx

  18. I love that dress! That's one of my favorite colors ;).

    Do you really like mochi? Like the Asian mochi??? So cool! ;) I used to hate it as a child, but then started liking it, especially the salty one, yum!

    Thanks for giving me your address, Marisa! I shall ship your package soon! ;D

    Hope you have an amazing week!

    Hugs!

    Miki.

    2. I loved the mochi MIki! It was actually my first time trying it and I didn't know what it actually was until I googled it...hehe. I'm assuming it was asian b/c the owners of the froyo place were asian. The salty kind sounds really interesting. This was more on the sweet side.

    I'm sorry about that tornado scare...I've never experienced anything similar to that, so I can't even imagine what a a scaredy cat I'd be.

  31. Hello darling! You look marvelous in that minty green hue! I can totally relate to you about that because would've had a complete heart attack if we were driving down the road with a tornado warning going on.. eek! They're my number one fear too haha. :)
    I love froyo! I am mainly a junkie when it comes to that though - I always get chocolate on chocolate on chocolate with chocolate whipped cream hahah. Devil's froyo I guess you could call it :).
    have a good week darling!
