Sunset Road

Style, July 7th 2010
After a day of on and off weather you never know what to expect out of the sunset. It was anything but disappointing. The sky looked like a watercolor. It was made even better by the summer air still warm from the day. Kev and I headed down to the bay to watch the sunset and take some pictures. I promise one day we will post up here with a bonfire, picnic basket, blankets, and a bottle of wine.

I've had this crochet top for a few months. This is the first time I've worn it. I couldn't figure out what to wear it with. I know it seems like such a simple top, but for whatever reason I was completely stumped. I remembered these pants in the back of my closet, from there the shoes fell into place, and I knew I wanted to use the bag. When outfits come together that easy, I think they're always so much more enjoyable to wear.

This Coach bag is my moms. She bought it in the 60's and it has stayed in wonderful condition. I really like how the leather is worn. I wonder where this bag has been and what it's seen. Especially because it's my moms. Was it there the day my parents met? Did she use it on her way to college classes? Take it with her work everyday? I should probably ask her.

Kev and I spent the rest of the night at the house, unwinding and being a real couple. It was such a luxury having him around all the time. Even if we were just sitting there watching tv, or going through our bedtime rituals, it was still really nice.

(I'm working through some photo problems today. These pictures are all crisp on my computer, but when resized they are going out of focus!)
I'm so happy to let you all know that Mikhaila  of Thriftaway Vintage decided to feature me in her first edition of Blogger Spotlight! You can see the full post of question and answers here, you might even be surprised. Thanks Mikhaila!

My two week vacation is officially over. It was so hard to pack up and get back in the mindset of work, but c'est la vie. Or something like that. How was everyone else's weekend?

these photos are amazing. and i <3 the photo of you and lua's feet/paws, actually made me grin madly!


That picture of you and Lua's paws is probably my favorite thing I've seen all week.

I have this adorable picture of a friend of mine napping in my bed with his head under a pillow and my dog is beside him with his head under a pillow too. This reminds me of that. :)
