Before I start talking about the fashion vibes around here I want to let you know that I'm not giving up on this blog. It's been a long, hot summer and I've been incredibly busy but I really really want to keep this thing going. I actually feel guilty when I post on INSTAGRAM instead of here because the blog was first and now it seems secondary. I don't like that. IG is fun, fast and easy and this is more work so I'm thinking it has just been the summer heat that made cheat on you. I promise to be better.
See that beautiful woman in the above photo? I spotted her while shopping the other day and she mesmerized me. We almost ran into each other while I was exiting a store and she was entering. She looked to be in her 70's. I loved her hair right off the bat and then I noticed how lithe and stylish she was. To get this photo I was literally running to keep up with her, she was so fast. She darted in and out of all the right stores, Neimans, Ferragamo, etc. She didn't buy anything (either did I) and let me tell you it was hot that day, like 105. She was bare legged in loafers (love that!) but had a long sleeve tee on and yet was so chill. Anyway, wanted to share that because you don't see women like that every day.
My hair is getting long again and I'm going to try and not cut it. I love being able to put it back and up and it's easier than styling it in a bob every single day. My hair is really thick and a pain to style. I've joined Larry's gym this summer to swim and this is just easier. So wish me luck.
Here I am looking rather stiff and unhappy but I wanted to show you this outfit I've been wearing. The tee is from Alex and B's store that they opened here in Redlands. They make the Tee's and sweaters themselves and lots of other things too. I got the vintage linen cropped trousers there also. I've been wearing this everywhere because it's so comfortable and surprisingly stylish.
I was minding the store for them in a vintage dress and loafers. There is also a coffee shop in the store and will soon have a barber too. It's a cool little store that was once a dairy in the middle of an orange grove. It's chock full of amazing vintage finds and is quite reasonable. Come visit me there!
Hope you summer has been far more exciting than mine. xoxo
