Behind me in these photos is the swan pond at my university. Billy and I went there for a picnic yesterday evening! The temperatures here have been so lovely, it`s almost like we skipped spring for the most part and went striaght into summer! The trees at the swan pond have all of their leaves now, and it`s absolutely gorgeous!
I really liked this outfit, and it looked even better in person! The white button-down I`m wearing is as soft as a cloud and quite sheer. I was trying out the 'peekaboo bra' look, and you could definitely tell. These pictures were taken at a bright time of day though! Oh well :) I'm loving this style of shorts too, I find tight ones sooo uncomfortable in warmer temperatures! The colour of these ones reminded me of a Florida retiree! I decided to have fun with it and added my snakeskin belt. Since I was already headed down the silly route with the oldie shorts and snakeskin, I thought, why not add my reverse polka-dot tights!
I love that the buttons are kind of an off-white cream colour, really similar to the belt! I'm so tickled when outfit components come together like that :D
Of course, I wore my beret as well! And my silver leather jacket, which unfortunately may "quit" on me soon... it's fake leather, and it's starting to crumble in places. I've had it for four or five years, so I guess it's had a good life!
I hope everyone has been well in my absence! I promise it won't go this long again. I'm aiming for regular daily posts from here on. I'm in a funny spot with my job situation, but that leaves me even more time for regular blogging! I've also made progress with my aprons. I finished my first one :D I'll have it up on Etsy really soon, along with some other vintage beauties that I've picked up recently. AND I finished my skirt! I'll take pictures soon and have them up on here as soon as I do!
