Striped Tunic+Blue Jeans/The Casual Date Outfit

Hi again, sorry for the time away! I’m in desperate need of a new macbook, the ole’ gal is starting to shut down on me…Naturally, I have been using it as a poor excuse for delaying posts and inadvertently increasing my stress level anyway. Oh how we are attached to our technology, now it even controls our emotions! I’m kidding, sort of. On a positive note, since I haven’t been stuck in front of the computer, Chris and I have racked up on our date nights. No complaints there. Dates don’t always have to be elaborate or well planned. I’ve come to appreciate a 20 minute walk (anywhere), which is exactly what this date was- a sunset and twenty minutes.

Crane Flower Romper+Vest Duo

The first day of summer is in the books and needless to say, it’s going to be a hot one. You may have to get over wanting to wear those maxi dresses or sleeveless jumpers and show a little leg.

Floral Fun/How to be a ‘Stylish’ Tourist

Summer is almost here and your suitcase (and sanity) is itching to travel anywhere far, far away from your current location. It’s okay to admit wanting a few days, no judging here. Instead I’m a full supporter of being unattainable for a few days. Like most trips, they normally entail a little touristing, possible gawking and a million photos. Being a tourist is fun, but sometimes locals do not share the same sentiment . Tourist can stick out like a sore thumb, which either makes you a target or someone to avoid. I don’t know about you, but if I’m visiting a new place I rather blend in than be the target of exploitation or a person to dodge. Wow I sound negative. I really do love being a tourist and traveling around the world. Personally I just prefer gawking at half-naked, man statues in peace, without being bombarded to buy a plastic replica. I learned that this “type” of situation is something I would like to avoid- for future trips. You may be in a country that speaks a different language, but your clothing can be multi-lingual. So today I want to give a few tips on how to avoid being a target tourist when viewing marble buttocks or whatever.  Read More
