absolutely perfect

6.5
i had a very chill weekend. went running then worked at my shop. matt headed to the farmer's market and picked up the best spinach i've ever had in my life! made and ate a ton of salads and hummus. drank wine. fell asleep on the couch. got some frozen yogurt to celebrate summer vacation. washed the cars. and had an amazing sunday night dinner with friends. it was the kind of weekend i wish would never end. absolutely perfect :)
how was your weekend????

and i love this little sweater! the sweet islabell (a fine day for sailing) sent this to me about a week ago. she saw it and immediately thought of me so she wanted me to have it!!!! she couldn't have picked anything better. i love it to bits. the fit is right on and i've already worn it twice because i love it so much. it is no secret that her blog is one of my new obsessions. she is currently trotting the globe on a fantastic vacation, but make sure you head over and check out her travel pics and guests posts. she's awesome!

this outfit is so sweet, so simple, and so you.

my kork ease knock-offs just broke! i'm thinking of buckling down and buying a new/used pair. was it terribly difficult to find yours used?

Excuse me, can I just borrow your weekend for one quick second. Oh ok, thanks.

Ah! This outfit is glorious. I love muted, pastel-y colors. And they look so lovely on you.

Your weekend sounds so relaxing. It's neat when events just fall nicely into place like that. I've just been trying to bust out wedding decorations all weekend... man, I should really start documenting this stuff!

Victoria / Justice Pirate said...

Oh wow. what a beautiful outfit! it is one of my favorites of yours!!! I think that sweater is so you, so that is so nice that it was sent to you!! It is so nice with that skirt. I want to go to the farmer's market. It's been two years since I went to the one in the town I graduated in/where my husband works.

Holy Dotastic! The pattern combination is lovely. That dress worn as a skirt is the perfect shade of pink. If only I could put you in my pocket when I go shopping, you would be my own personal vintage stylist, and I would like that to bits.

I simply adore this great outfit! I can't imagine any other skirt being better suited for that supercool blouse.
