Neighborhood 1

Outfit Details: Blouse: Vintage in my shop // Sweater: Modcloth (old - last remixed here) // Hat: Target // Necklace: Etsy // Shorts: Topshop (old - last remixed here) // Shoes: Gift

Just another simple, sunny but cool day down by the dam where I live.  In moments to ourselves, the hubs and I just love to take walks around our neighborhood, which is nothing short of peaceful.  On occasion, I'll get a question from another blogger asking how I spot the perfect place to take a photo and will I take time out of my busy day to drive to that place.  I guess the answer really is - I don't have much time, so most photos you see on here (unless I am off visiting my hometown or my inlaws in Philly, with the occasional vacation trip) are taken right smack dab in the center of my neighborhood.  I like to keep things pretty true to life on here.  It's quite a strange little place as it doubles as a year round development with single family homes but also a resort area with condominiums where people buy time shares and vacation in the summer.  (You can see these condos in back of me, behind the dam).  So that's the story and this is my current town where I am living.  I've spent a lot of time lately down at the lake with friends, kayaking and just laying out on the beach.  Not every day is that laid back, but I will take each little moment that I can get to soak up the sunshine and beautiful surroundings.

Like I promised, I will be back soon with a very easy and pretty DIY :)

  24. love the shorts! llooovvveee the sweater! beautiful!

  25. So, I was scrolling through my blog comments trying to reply to people and came to your page, and saw the first image and had to stop everything I was doing at work just to take my time looking through and reading. I LOVE this outfit. LOVE LOVE LOVE.I love the neutrals with the light blues, I think it reminds me of the sand and the ocean and summer! You look just as cute as can be!
    I love that you take the pictures around your neighborhood, as we always say, we are both so lucky to live in such pretty areas! I can drive for 5 minutes and be at a little trailhead, or really just wander a few blocks to a stream or something! Sometimes I feel like I should be more the lifestyle/ street style blogger standing on a crowded sidewalk, but that really isn't usually my lifestyle!
    I hope you are having the best of days girl!

    it reminds me a bit of whistler in British columbia where you live. resort like picturesque but every day people live there and get to enjoy the beauty.

    this is such a clever outfit. i'm going to have to try to recreate it come the cooler months, today in toronto, all you want to wear is your skivvies! (but no one wants to see that!)

  27. It's official, you have the cutest style ever! I'm dying over this outfit, and all of your others! These photos are great :)

  28. I love how detailed and special each of the pieces in this outfit are and how pretty they work together!

    And I love the way you describe the location scouting. I seriously just see potential spots when I'm driving like "ohhh tall grass, ohhhh a run down house, ohhh graffiti" and write them down on my phone and go back to my list when I need a spot or I'll just drive and stop whenever something looks like it could match my outfits. It's not really about time at all.

    1. oooh gosh you are so cute, when the very first picture of you popped up here on my pc you put me a big bright smile on my face;)
      it seems when you are smiling the sun is shining;)

  29. I live in the most picturesque little place in Oregon. The Dundee Hills. I live on a vineyard surrounded by orchards. I posted pictures a while ago. The thing is though my boyfriend lives in town (not that nice), and since I work in town we mostly hang out at his house, so when we do take the walks around the "neighborhood" its actually a neighborhood and not a gorgeous vineyard haha but I'd like to take more walks by my house as oppose to walks by his apartments.

  30. Oh man, that sweater is a treasure.

    xoxo mama wolf.

  31. Thank you so much for your sweet comment!
    This outfit is wonderfull, The shorts are so lovely and the color combination is great!


  32. Yer adorable, awe!

    That sweater is just lovely. I love the orange flowers on it--little details like that really make a piece! That's neat how you take your outfit pictures around where you live. I do the same thing. I would never be able to drive to exotic locations all the time to do outfit photos, but that doesn't mean once in a while it'd be a bad thing. :)

  33. OMG, how sweet are you! Your smile is 2nd to none <3 I luv the layering and those shorts are lovely on you.


  34. Look at your cute smile!! It is so cool! I really adore your photos for this post! They seem so fun.
