Summer Light


{ Top & Necklace: F21// Shorts & Belt: Thrifted// Shoes: BC Shoes}








There is nothing quite as nice as a plaid top in the late summer heat. I normally tend to avoid this particular shirt because it feels a bit too western. When reviewing these photos on my laptop I realized how much I adore the salmon and navy blue colors together and how I don't wear plaid prints enough! I am normally distracted by floral prints, my favorite, but this was a very nice change for me. 

Things are looking mighty fine right now, hopefully I'll get a job soon and fall semester is starting up next week! I am excited for the future and really excited to pull my life together with a nice and normal routine. I'll miss the sweet summer days of sewing and reading, but definitely time to carry on.

Weeks almost over :)

P.S. The Help was amazing and somehow I managed not to cry once. Considering Star Wars Episode Six made me cry this is quite the accomplishment. I recommend everyone go see this movie, not only was the story funny and inspirational, but all the peter pan collars and vintage prints were to die for!

I feel like I keep seeing lots of people wearing plaid shirts for the summer-it never occurred to me! I thought it would be too hot to wear...but you look super comfy and summery!
That owl necklace is fantastic as well!

I love plaid on you! It looks so sweet and cute and I love how you styled it :). I need to investigate that movie! I haven't heard about it or seen any previews for it (the east always is late on getting stuff from the west coast) but it sure does sound interesting! i'm such a sap when it comes to movies though, i cry about EVERY LITTLE THING, especially when something happens
like someone dies or something haha

Those shorts are fantastic on you! I want a pair like that too haha. I love the plaid top with them. That's a clothing item that's seriously lacking in my wardrobe. Maybe I could thrift one sometime soon!
