Flecks of Color

dress: target, shoes & necklace: my mom's, tote: a gift
Yay! My camera man returned. :) Now I'm back to being spoiled and not having to use a tripod! (for now...!) Anyway, these photos are from yesterday when I spent the afternoon with Nathaniel. We didn't do much... just spent time talking and being in each other's company. Which is always a pleasure. When you're not out and about with your significant other, what do you do? Nat and I have been playing video games lately! Silly, I know. ;)

My friend Miranda painted this canvas bag for me for my birthday a few years ago and I finally decided it needed a spot on my blog! I've been craving using a simple canvas tote to hold my miscellaneous things like I've seen many bloggers doing this summer, but I don't have one! And I guess that is fine, because this bag is beautiful and made especially for me! :) Plus, the gold on it matches the gold flecks in my dress perfectly.

I kept it relatively simple with this outfit - just a dress, shoes, and minimal accessories. It's been pretty darn hot lately! Iced tea has been on the menu every day. It's really been all I can manage to just wear a loose dress. Oh! And before I forget... I think Nat and I have found the perfect time to take photos! I am so happy with the quality of these and it was around 7:45 ish that we took them. A plus to taking photos at this hour is that it isn't hot anymore like in the day time, but, it isn't yet freezing like the normal Northern California nights. Anyway... Have a great Saturday! xx
currently listening to... Beirut - Nantes


  1. It's so awesome that your friend painted that tote for you! It's perfect for the summer because you can keep all of your day-to-day goodies safely stored. And loving the dress as well! Sometimes the best days are doing absolutely nothing with your significant other. Video games are always a plus. Xx

    Ps. I also have been listening to Beirut recently, is it strange that I have only just discovered how amazing they are?!

    I wish I had a camera man! That sounds so much easier (and much less stupid looking) than a tri-pod!
