Finally wearing my new shoes that I bought ages ago! I picked up these grass green beauties from Modcloth (see them here) and when they arrived the size 10 was much too big! So I returned them for the 9, and after what seemed like an age they finally arrived and the 9 fit perfectly! I just love them, the color, the 40's style straps and chunky heel, they are just too cute!
This safari shirt is a real safari shirt, in that it is from LL Bean's "Traveler" line and has some extra details that lead me to believe it was made and sold with the actual intention you would wear it on safari! There are even cooling net panels sewn into the sides of the shirt. I picked it up for less than $4 dollars when I went thrifting a few weeks back. It is exactly what I was looking for so I was quite glad to add it to my wardrobe. The Hawaiian print skirt I made last year, and I wish I could get more of this fabric or something similar for a tropical print dress but have so far been unable to find anything.
We drove towards some suburban open-space after running errands this morning and ended up discovering this lush "jungle" and beautiful pond! This space is wedged between two neighborhoods just off a main road, and looks innocent enough from that road, but turned out to be an awesome area! I was so excited to turn around a corner of the path and find this lush Jungle Cruise-like pond! There is nothing like finding a new great place for outfit photos, it made my day!
I have some pretty crammed sewing plans for this week, so I better get going on those! I hope you all are having a lovely start to your week!
