summers end

  

It is the time of love,
the time of friends and adventure.
As the time comes and goes,
one thinks of nothing in spite of one's wounds.
Because the time of love
it's long and it's short,
it lasts forever, one remembers it.
At twenty, we tell ourselves that we rule the world,
and that all the blue sky will be in our eyes forever.
-le temps de l'amour



 


I seriously can't believe it's the very last day of summer, time has flown! The mild weather lately has been screaming spring so I dressed accordingly. Rainy,fresh breeze,slightly warm..everything is lush and green again. This in between season has been a bit sporadic, now it's starting to get cold again.   
I'm not complaining, I'm relishing.



The colors in this outfit are some of my favorites..pale peachy pinks and minty blues, plus grey! I love the watercolor florals of this dress, I squealed and snatched it up as soon as I spotted it haha. You know how f21 is..it was the only one like it in the whole store. Only set me back 26!

I thought of Moonrise Kingdom colors when I first saw this dress, can't wait until it comes out on video next month so I can watch it again! I'm a sucker for vintage woven purses, love the colorful raffia flowers on this one.


I thrifted this vintage(50/60's) fisherman's purse a few moths ago,it has the original owners name on a little paper tag inside..she lived a few streets away! And who doesn't want to put a tiny kitty in a basket/purse? I sure do. Little Lu is growing so fast everyday, I doubt he would even fit in it next week..2.6lbs. I swear he's doubled in size.

A home cooked meal and Parks & Rec is on the agenda tonight.  After a string of healthy veggie dishes Luke's requesting steak..Ron Swanson is his personal hero haha


Have a great weekend, treat yo self!
