How small we are

This past week has been so busy that I completely slacked on taking photos and writing posts. It happens, but hey, at least I have these really bright photos for you, right? This dress was given to me awhile ago, but I'm not much of a strapless person and kind of forgot about it.

Last week, I saw the Avett Brothers for the first time in a few years and we had really great seats. The set list wasn't the best, but they're always wonderful. I also saw the Good Life on my birthday and it was the BEST way to spend the night. I also had tacos and piece that weighed a pound per slice. Basically livin' the dream.

Happy Hour

I looked pissed off in these photos, but I assure you that's not the case. I was overly hot, kind of hungry, and 100% dehydrated. The mosquitoes were in full force and have I mentioned that I really am a big baby in the heat? This dress was from the last swap we held. This was the first time I've actually worn it. I don't love the easily wrinkled material or the shape, but it is insanely comfortable and cute. I've worn it a few times since and think it might be in heavy rotation in the coming months.

Last week, I had the pleasure of seeing one of my favorite bands for the third time this summer. It was a free outside show at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was every bit as magical an outdoor show in the middle of summer should be. They ended the set with my favorite song off the new record that is a heart-wrenching acoustic song about the end of your life. Please stop what you're doing and listen to Hop Along. Please!

City on the Hill

My sister is responsible for most of this outfit. A long while ago she gave me this vest and when she was in town, the skirt and I borrowed the top because I have a serious lack of shirts. This outfit makes me feel like a Disney Channel extra or maybe the best friend of the Disney Channel lead actress. If I wore this outfit again, I would definitely wear different shoes, but I guess I just really wanted to feel closer to Fall.

Impossible to Place

I bought this dress in the Fall. It has the best Fall color combo of moody hues and a vintage inspired floral print. Structurally, however, it's very much a summer dress.

My sister has been in town from Canada which doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's a whirlwind of spontaneity and non-stop movement. We adventured to Dayton to visit our mother. On the way, we stopped in Columbus for coffee and ice cream -- which is a necessity after two and a half hours of driving. We explored my mom's town, got donuts in the middle of the night, had brunch in the morning, and walked through all the cute shops. It's such a cute little town that looks like it's straight out of the movies. My sister leaves today and I'm already missin' her.

Now I'm binge watching Bates Motel and about to dive into Gone Girl (the book).
