Quail Hollow Village

 Outfit Details: Cardi: Target // Blouse: Vintage // Shorts: Asos // Purse: Antique Mall // Hat & Socks: UO// Shoes: Gift 

Our little neighborhood is never short of nature-ridden places to explore.  One of my favorite spots is this spillway that sits just behind a group of vacation condos known as Quail Hollow Village.   I could most certainly sit here all day and read or picnic if time allowed, but today I chose to kayak over this way instead - right to the edge of the dam where the water spills over.  That was at 6:30 AM.  I am anything but a morning person but perhaps if all mornings included a kayak and a misty lake with a sherbet colored sunrise, I may just welcome this hour of the day.

Of course - this is not the outfit that I really kayaked in nor is it 6:30 in the morning, but rather later on that same day.  I will miss summer and long sunny days just like this, but I am thrilled to welcome in the season of pumpkin spice and fiery colored leaves.  So that is that.  Bring on the fall!

Hope you darlings had the most loveliest of weekends!  Labor day put me in the mood for veggie chili and a little DIY.  Onto cut and sew and cook I go.  Talk soon!

Love Bunches,

  9. This place is adorable and OH GOSH DO I LOVE YOUR OUTFIT. <3

  10. I was going to question if you went kayaking in that outfit! Although you would have looked fabulous, it probably would not have been practical. Once again, lovely photos girl!

  11. looks like such a beautiful place! and the photos are lovely, as always! :-) xx

  12. I love that cardigan, so sweet, and you and the location look wonderful as always! Kayaking sounds amazing... I've only done it once but I loved it, and you make it sound so idyllic :)

  16. so, so, so pretty marisa. that purse is outstanding, and i need to go look for that cardi at target! glad your labor day weekend was so dreamy :) x

  17. How lucky you are to have such a place close by. It's wonderful. What a great early morning kayak ride that must have been. I'm not an early morning person either but the scenario you described could just change that.


  18. Hey Marisa--just found your from the guest post you did on Katherine's blog! I think I kinda love you. Is that okay!? : )

    xo, My Billie

  19. My dear Marisa, it is my birthday today, and finding your blog has been one of my greatest presents this year.
    I could spend hours looking at each and everyone of your pics. The little details in them, the calm, the colours, your smile...
    Much love, dear friend.

  20. That spot is so pretty. I love your little bag.

  21. Girl, you are amazing! Kayaking at 6:30 Am, whew. I'll bet it is gorgeous though! My mom actually joined a kayak club for when she is in Hawai'i, but I think she rarely goes because of the ungodly hour the start at! Kayaking besides, your outfit is adorable, the lime and the turquoise are so pretty together!
    On a completely unrelated note, I joined Chictopia today and went to search for you but it said you hadn't posted in awhile! If you have any tips or opinions or hints about the site, I would love to hear them! Do you think it helped with your blog at all? I am not sure how I feel yet but thought I would at least try it out!
    Alrighty, hope you are having a beautiful day missy!

  24. I love, love, love the color palette you chose, the landscape, and of course, sweet Keane :P. This post reminds me that I need to get myself a hat.

    By the way, you're the winner of the white vintage dress, Marisa! :D I'll be shipping it to you asap. Your address is the same one, right?
