wish i was on vacay














































i am ready for vacation. problem is, i'm not going anywhere any time soon. boo.
maybe that's why i'm dressed like i'm on vacation. it's not even super hot out. like i had to put on a cardigan because i was a bit chilly. but i just wanted that summer vacation feeling.
but, on a much happier note, i finally bought a nice camera! ever since the one i broke, i've been searching for a dslr that wouldn't bankrupt me. i finally found one yesterday (via ebay, of course). it should be here thursday and i am pretty much beside myself with excitement. i mean, just think of all the crazy camera angles i could explore with the right machinery?! it even comes with a tripod so i don't have to set it up on random stuff and risk the wind blowing it down. do you guys use a remote for taking pictures yourself or a timer? anyway, thursday cannot come fast enough.
and speaking of cameras, if you haven't entered the holga giveaway yet, make sure you don't forget! it ends on friday. tell your friends too. and moms, dads, grandmas, brothers, sisters, co-workers, neighbors, just basically everyone you know.
details:
shorts-thrifted, talbots
shirt-vintage
shoes-thrifted

Ooo I love your blouse! Adorable look! I normally use a timer or I grab a friend and we have some fun with it. I'm really wanting a tripod tho.. I'm stacking books! lol

What a simple, but fabulous outfit. :) I wish I were on vacation too! I know I know.. boo to me, I live in Hawaii!! My "vacation" is going somewhere where there is hustle and bustle.. I guess the grass is always greener. :)

I love your outfit! Your shorts remind me of the DIY ones I've been working on...for much longer than I should have. I really need to finish them so I can dress like I'm on vacation too!

I love your shoes, I recently discovered how amazing thrifted shoes can be!

I don't have a camera remote, although having one would be great. I just use the trusty self-timer. I feel like running back and forth is just kind of the process, haha.
