Sunset Lake

Outfit Details: Dress (sale) & tights: Modcloth // Scarf: Vintage // Brooch: Antique Mall // Shoes (old) : Dolce Vita








Hello darlings, 

How have you been?  It really feels like September is as busy ever and has kind of swept in like a whirlwind.  My favorite thing this month so far has been the little quiet moments the fam and I have been able to grab down by the lake where we live before the weather really turns cold.  Twirling around and watching the sun go down is a very nice contrast to the hustle and bustle that at times fills the every day.  We actually came down here to eat dinner (my neighborhood has it's own little restaurant that sits on the lake) and it was kind of the best place to unwind.  I feel pretty blah and behind in everything right now - so these next couple days will be devoted to catching up.  Catching up with emails, catching up with my Etsy shop, catching up with mundane tasks, and catching up with you!  

That's about all for now.  It's rainy and windy as all get out - up to 60 mph gusts (yeah, that actually really scares me) so I am content to cozy  up inside with my cup of tea and a pile of laundry.  Hey, I never said my life is glamorous - ha!  

Talk soon darlings!
Love bunches,

  13. These photos are so lovely. I need to head to a lake by me at sunset, and why don't I do that when I live in the land of 10,000 lakes? I just don't know. :) Sounds like your time is being well spent, and hooray for that, girlfriend.

  25. awww, you let him go in with his pants rolled down! That's brave! I would have made my boys cuff up their pants as far as possible so they wouldn't get water everywhere! Hehe. These are really beautiful shots and I love your tights.

  33. I'm always so jealous of your Lake photos now I hear there's a cute little restaurant on it? We need to do an exchange, you come visit Oxford and I'll come and prance around where you live. I love the cute pattern clashes with your dress and tights

  34. This is the coolest outfit in the history of outfit posts. I absolutely love everything about it, the yellow and orange of the dress look so good together, I really wish I had shopped that sale! And those tights! My heart is melting! Oh my goodness and you even have a kitty pin! Your plaid boys even look adorable and the backdrop is gorgeous! I wish we had a nice body of water here to relax by.. we have creeks but its just not the same as a nice lake! Thanks for sharing little snippets of your beautiful fam Marisa I seriously feel like I know you guys!
    Lastly, the blogger spotlight is SO COOL! I have never seen a more cute/ organized way of doing it and love how it turned out. I will definitely have to check out the other gals as well!
    Hope you're having a beautiful night!

  35. maybe not glamorous but so how I like my life too! haha cute photos! such a cute, sweet family!

  36. Oh, hope it's not raining any more! Although I could really use some rain right now. It it still really hot over here, but I won't complain :p.

    This outfit is perfection! Love the dress and tights! So playful! :D

    And I can't wait to see photos of your Christmas tree and your grandma's ornaments! When I was about 12, my dad got into one of his "clearing clutter moods" and accidentally threw away all of my grandma's Christmas ornaments. I cried then and I feel like crying every time I think about it. She passed when I was 4, so that stash of little ornaments was pretty much all I had left from her.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend, beautiful Marisa! ;D

  40. Oh my goodness Marisa, this outfit is SO darling! I need a pair of fun tights like this! You are so lucky to be getting some fall temps to enjoy those sunsets. I'm so ready for a cool down! I'm not letting this *still* hot weather stop from enjoying some pumpkin beers and (iced) pumpkin coffee though :) Love everything about this look!
