August Adventures


jacket: the gap, dress: swap with friend, bag: marshall's, sunglasses: h&m, shoes: thrifted
What a busy Saturday! I haven't had a nice and jammed-pack day for a while now, so it was well overdue. I zoomed up to the city with my mom and we met Amanda at the Alamo Square Flea Market. Amanda used to blog, but doesn't anymore - though that isn't to say she doesn't have a presence on the internet still, haha. It was awesome getting to meet her! This summer has been a great time for meeting with bloggers in real life, and for that I'm incredibly grateful. Amanda and I found other lovely blogging gals at the flea market as well! None other than Isla, Jennifer, and Annalise. I've met these three once before and they are just so sweet and friendly. Bloggers are the best, you guys.

The rest of my day consisted of a trip to Ikea (my mom and I are trying to find the things I need for college, finally!) and then I fancied up and went to a James Bond themed party that evening. As you guys know, if I stumble across an occasion to get dressed up, I will do it. Especially when I remember that I have that whole box of vintage belonging to my great grandma. Fortunately there was a beautiful 60s number in there and I wore it proudly to the party. I got quite a few compliments on my outfit as well! I didn't get any good photos of it though. :( Next time.

I have just about a month before I leave for college. I'm hoping to make the absolute most of that time left; including two major things that are coming up quite quickly - getting my first tattoo next Saturday and turning nineteen on September 7th! Bring it.

  8. Gosh dangit, your pictures are always so lovely. I love that last picture and the one of the pretty flowers. <3

    I'm sorry that you didn't get any good pictures of your James Bond party, but that's so neat that everyone loved your super cool vintage clothes! :) The polka dot dress you're wearing here is much too cute~ I love navy and white polka dots, I actually recently purchased a similar one, so you should totally wear this dress more so I can copycat your outfits. ;D
