Style, July 8thAfter yet another beach day, Kev and I decided to head out of town and try a new BBQ joint. Thirty minutes later we arrived and realized it was more of a take out place than eat in. No problem, I actually really enjoyed the drive with him. Driving with Kev is much better than driving without him. We headed fifteen minutes back towards home and went to a nice little pub. It was just what we needed. A little greasy pub food and a hearty brew after all the healthy food from the week.
We stopped at this park on the way out of town to take some shots and I had every intention of getting great woodsy, lost in the greenery shots when the path we were on led right to this little bridge and I couldn't resist.
I wore this dress way back in the beginning of April for my second ever set of outfit pictures. It was half of my very first purchase from Modcloth. It's also what I'm wearing in my profile picture. I love the top detail on this dress.
I haven't talked much about all the traveling I've done. When I was in high school I went to Paris and Rome on a school trip. It was a trip taken by the latin and french classes in my public school and was the first time I had ever been abroad. I bought this amber bracelet in Rome. My favorite pieces of jewelry and clothing are things that have come from my travels or been passed down through my family. I remember standing in the shop that was filled to the brim with amber jewelry trying to decide between bracelets for the longest time. There are little petals suspended inside this one. I've been back to both Paris and Rome since, which is pretty amazing.
I always find it easier to wear pants and a top than a dress. For some reason dresses have been very hard for me to wear. I've branched out recently and have a made some dress purchases over the last few months. It's hard for me to wear them in a way that fits into my very casual life. I think the boots and purse did the trick in making this potentially very feminine outfit more casual. I love the dress, which is why I bought it in the first place, it's just that I sometimes have trouble feeling myself in things that are very girlie.

Kev and I finished out the relaxing day with a relaxing night at home. Oh, how I miss vacation.
Are you a dress gal or do find it easier to wear tops and bottoms?
I'm still having some trouble with the focus of the smaller pictures. They are fine both on my computer and in picnik, but when I transfer them to flickr something happens and they go out of focus! If anyone has any ideas why this is happening, or ways to put larger images together and resize them from there without photoshop, I'd really appreciate it!
