Good Day Sunshine

Outfit Details: Top: Vintage // Skirt (dress) : Vintage, upcycled (remixed here) // Hat: Anthropologie (old, on sale) // Brooch: Gift from Sister // Shoes: UO// Tote: Cute Vintage






As a perpetual night owl - I most often think the sunset is the best part of every day, especially on nights like this, which I will admit are few and far between.  Nonetheless, I found this scenic little spot to catch the sun bidding us goodnight and it just seemed to be the perfect farewell to this summer day.

I'm all kinds of giddy at the moment because in a few days I will be leaving for Hilton Head Island, SC with my parents and my son to scout out and book the perfect house for my little sister's beach wedding in November.  The poor hubs and sis have to stay back home and work, but Keane and I and my parents will make it well worth it for when November rolls around.

Anyhow, I must be off for now.  There is much to do and of course much to pack:)
Talk soon darlings!

Love Bunches,

  1. This top and skirt look made for each other. I love the color combination/prints. That sounds like such a fun little trip! I've never been down South, I'm not sure I want to, but I do like the water. What a wonderful location for a November wedding!

    Oh, and the sunset photo is dreamy!

  2. Sometimes I feel I might as well not even leave a comment because you know exactly what I am going to say!
    But, here it goes anyway! I LOVE THIS!I love the color palette, its just so happy & I love how you tied the shirt up to wear over the dress- genius! The setting is beautiful, especially in this light. I love that you quite obviously work to find the prettiest settings, it adds so much more (and takes SO MUCH more time, as I know well) then just stepping onto the sidewalk.
    Also, I will email you my giveaway photos/ info tonight! I have "giveaway" scribbled across my wrist so I can't possibly forget when I get home from work! Talk to you soon lovely!

  21. Oooh I've heard Hilton Head is beautiful! Lucky lady, I'm dreaming of beaches right now! I love all your flower prints together- your outfit screams summer and I could gush about every piece... Knotted tops have been my favorite lately, and I swore in the '90s I would never do that again :)

  22. I feel like it's been ages since the last time I stopped by your blog and I have obviously been missing out! Your photos are as lovely as ever. I love you you really work on the photography aspect of your blog as well as the outfits and include photos of the scene around you - which, in this case, is extremely impressive. Your outfit is just summery perfection, too. I especially love those adorable shoes. Have a fabulous trip!

    1. It's actually Wilkes Barre - it does resemble Harrisburg a bit though - like on Front Street or that bridge behind the train station:)
