Vintage Stripes


I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I can't believe that it's already June. May was definitely a very crazy month for me. It was filled with changes -- for both me and my close friends. I'm not sure what it was about this month, but 4 of my girlfriends have moved away and I made a career change. It's a lot for one month to handle! I definitely don't love the fact that my close friends are moving, but they are all beginning new adventures and I feel like there will be a lot of amazing new beginnings from this (myself included). Is it just me or was there something strange about this May for you as well? Must be something in the stars ;) I'm so much looking forward to the summer now and it feels so close now that June is here!!

This weekend has gone super fast for me.  I worked yesterday, so that eats into the weekend a bit, but we went out for an amazing meal at a local Italian restaurant. Lots of food and tasty wine! It was warm enough to sit out on the patio - my favorite part of summer! I love eating dinner outside :)

I decided to wear a vintage dress that I recently purchased. When I bought it, it had these really strange puffy long sleeves, which I cut off into short sleeves. I really love the way that it has turned out. It's very sheer and looks amazing if you are daring enough to wear it with a bandeau top and shorts. I didn't think it would be appropriate for the place we were eating at, but I would love to do this sometime!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! Thank you so much for all of your supportive comments :)
















I was wearing:

Vintage Dress
H&M Clutch
Zara Shoes (want these ones!)
Tarryl M & XO Bella Bracelets
Kenneth Cole Watch (similar here and here)
Pyrrha And Tiffany Necklaces

  4. Wow, May was a crazy month for you!! I can't believe you had 4 friends move!! I also had one of my best friends move out of LA & my sister move back to LA, so it was kind of an odd month for me in that way as well. Must have been a moving month. Your vintage dress looks so lovely!!! I also really love your bracelets & gold clutch!

  8. I know exactly what you mean. When it rains, it pours. But as long as it's a good thing ;)

    Looking lovely by the way.

  25. what horrible friends you have to move away from you!!! If I were one of those horrible friends I would feel very sad.

    Also your pictures just keep getting more and more beautiful each post. You have this blessed ability to appear etherial and edgy all at the same time. Splendiferous!
