Hello, everyone! Long time no see. I've been brainstorming lots of ideas for the blog and its layout, and today some of those ideas became a reality! I got all dressed up in my pixie gear and headed to the park with Rachael (you can read more about it on her blog as well). I had recently driven past the park and noticed all the pink blossoms on the grass that had fallen off the trees and thought it was a perfect photo opportunity (as you can see here and in the new banner above!). Despite many of them being dead, I'd say the photo shoot was a success, and precisely what I had envisioned.
The American Apparel figure skating dress has been on my wish list for quite some time, so when I saw it at The Salvation Army for $4.99 in this gorgeous deep magenta colour, I was practically giddy with glee! It's one of my favourite pieces for a lazy day or for dance class. Rachael had gifted me the sparkly gold socks that day as a belated birthday gift, and we thought they were just perfect with the collared top I have on, don't you?
Later on in the day, we went to town where we partook in thrifting and some drinks at an artsy café, where I cast a magic spell and made two Italian sodas appear for the price of one! Rachael and I received many looks for our ensembles, as we often do, and were even called "beautiful" by a lovely stranger. It was quite a nice afternoon indeed.
In 5 days now, I return HOME, back to San Francisco, and I am so very excited. Most of my clothes and necessities are packed away now, so there won't be an outfit post until I return--but do not fret, because there will be lots of outfits coming your way, as I will be inspired daily by the beautiful city itself! Are any of you excited for school as much as I am, or do you wish summer lasted forever? Let me know!
Stay sweet ♡
P.S. Thanks, Rachael, for all the amazing shots!
