the weather is what you talk about on an awkward date.

 top: base exchange / jeans: belk / hat: american eagle / watch: fossil / shoes: blowfish shoes
nails: OPI william tell me about + sally hansen sonic boom / bag: le mode accessories / necklace: courtesy of le mode accessories

i think i'm in the mood for a vacation.
somewhere tropical.
beaches, white sands, and a straw in a coconut, pls.
got my traveling bag.
rocking my new fedora.
(been looking for the perfect one for forever. this was it for me.)
wearing an exotic, bright hot pink.

except the temperatures have dropped to 50s around here. so instead of a bright pink swimsuit, we're going for a tee and wide leg jeans. oh, well. it could be worse. the beach is 15 minutes away from where i live, so as soon as the temperatures hit those highs, we're making a mad dash for the beach! 

but enough about the weather. i think i wrote about it on tuesday. weather is what you talk about when you have nothing else to talk about - like on an awkward date or during a convo in the grocery store line. 

in other news...

this weekend, i'm looking forward to a couple of opportunities to exercise my photography skills! i'm super excited and a teensy bit nervous - so keep your fingers crossed for me! also, thanks to a sweet twitter friend, i finally got on board with pinterest. and i can finally see why everyone is so obsessed with it. soooo...wanna be friends? (is that the right lingo for pinterest - or is that so-facebook?)

so what's new with you, friend?
fill in the deets for me, as long as it has nothing to do with the weather.
and hey, tomorrow is friday - woohoo!!

much love.
[happy thursday, friend.]

p.s. got two rockin' giveaways to check out if you haven't already!!

  1. Loving that color! I never wear pink, but I love it on others.

    It's cold here, too. We barely hit 50 - and at least you've got sun!

  4. I wish I lived that close to the beach. I have to drive a good 25-45 minutes to get to the beach, and that's if there isn't traffic (which is rare). I love your outfit and I can't wait to see your photography! :)

  14. Love everything about this outfit! I need you to come pick out my clothes for me. Like, daily. I'm in such a Mom rut, and I've decided that I'm sick of it & I want out. Not out of being a mom, of course :) Just out of my fashion rut. ANYWAY, moving on...I'm totally jealous that you're only 15 minutes from the beach.
