Sunset Plaid

There's nothing like wearing a psychedelic vintage plaid twin set in the middle of a wind tunnel in the blazing heat!  I LOVE this set that I did a little makeover to that is for sale in the shop, but my windswept hair is less like a shampoo commercial and more like a disaster stuck to my lipgloss.  Also, there were about 10,000 prairie dogs (or P-dogs as I like to refer to them as) barking angrily at me as I took these.  Just to set the mood for what is usually going on behind the scenes in my photos!

Pink Sunnies - c/o Sunglass Warehouse

It's getting to that point in the summer that I start to feel a bit panicky about my weekends and all of the fun stuff I want to do that you can only do in summer.  I want to go to an amusements park or water park, the zoo, the reservoir, picnics... the list goes on and on but time is flying by!

Do you have any good weekend plans? Have fun!

Oh My Darlin'

You guys, I'm just loving all the pretty scenery around our new place!  It's not that Boulder did not have pretty scenery - it most definitely did - but in the new town, things are a bit more rural and remote.  It makes heading out to snap photos without being seen or bothered a way easier process!

Outfit Details
Vtg Pinafore - in the shop here!
Vtg Straw Hat - thrifted
Vtg Purse - my moms
Sunnies - c/o Sunglass Warehouse
Metallic Shoes - Modcloth

This vintage pinafore from the shop is what summer dreams are made of.  Its red and white gingham with a fruit and flower print, so I gladly jumped at the chance to style it before someone undoubtedly snaps it up quickly! I paired it with a new-to-me straw hat I thrifted the other day, which will also be in the shop soon.  As for the shoes, I (virtually) grabbed them in Modcloth's most recent super sale and they are so much fun!  I'm just going to pretend the shiny metallic copper color is a neutral and wear them with everything.

Hope you're having a great week!

Hot Pink Hibiscus

I know I know, every Monday all everyone has to say is how very short the weekend was.  But this one seemed extra super duper short!  I think it also passed 100 degrees in temperature, so this is what I wore for a quick trip to the pool.

Outfit Details:
Dress - c/o August Wrinkle
Sunnies - c/o Sunglass Warehouse
Woven Bracelet - Mitla Moda (similar)
Sandals - hand-me-downs
Necklace - handmade by me!

This dress definitely could be dressed up and seem fancy, but the light floaty layers and hot pink color make it a perfect pool cover up too.  I paired it with a pair of folding sunglasses from Sunglass Warehouse (they literally fold up until their pocket -sized!), a matching woven fair trade bracelet from Mitla Moda, and a neon fringe necklace I made.
     In high school and through college, I actually had my own small jewelry line called Tropichannah (get it... Tropicana... tropic hannah...okay then).  I had a little shop on Etsy and also made custom pieces and sets for special occasions, like bridesmaids jewelry for two of my cousins weddings.  I then moved to Colorado, started my career in the environmental field, and my hobby fell a bit to the wayside.  But now that I run my vintage shop full time, I am having a really good time getting back into some of my favorite creative passions, and am actually planning on launching a handmade shop on Etsy in the next few months too! This actually has been a plan in the works for awhile now, but since I am wearing a fringe necklace that would be in the shop, I thought it seemed like a good time to mention it here!  The handmade shop will also have a charitable component as well, with a portion of proceeds being donated to a cause I feel very passionately about - can anyone guess?! Anyway, let me know what you think, and if you have ideas for other colors your would like to see, etc., I would love to hear!

Ranger Rick

Hi guys its me.  Did you think it was Ranger Rick?  I could see how that could be confusing.


Outfit Details:
Vintage Overalls - similar in shop
Boots & Top - thrifted
Hat - Eddie Bauer
Sunnies - gift
Striped Sweater - c/o Oasap

I kind of can't believe I'm making this into an "outfit" post, but this is what I wore to hit the road and head out to our camping trip last weekend. Lots of layers, boots, and thankfully, some rain gear too because WOW did we get a lot of rain.

Anyway, lots of work to do today so I can enjoy my weekend! Do you guys have any fun plans?

Orange is the New Black

A few years ago I started this blog as a networking and promotional tool for the vintage shop I was opening.  Last night while R and I were working on some rebranding materials, he asked me what my blog is for now.  While I still think it is important networking and promotional tool, this blog has also really become a favorite creative outlet of mine.  Since our recent move to a new town, I have actually liked going out to explore new photo locations and my tripod has again become more of a buddy and less of a dreaded necessity.  All that to say... I know these photos are strange, but sometimes I really like to not only use this blog to show "what I'm wearing", but also get to express a bit of creativity through it!
Outfit Details:
Dress - borrowed from Taylor
Crown - handmade by me
Beaded Necklace - Mitla Moda
Cat Pin - Albinohare on Etsy
Floral Sneakers - Target
Pink Wig - c/o Wigsbuy

Down the road from our new place is this giant abandoned sugar mill.  Even closer are these open fields with strange abandoned concrete patches and sand piles.  Most people think the mill is an eye sore, but I actually find places that these "leftover" places beautiful.   I thought it would be a fun contrast to shoot a colorful feminine outfit in this strange mix of industrial and wild. The effects are pretty but definitely eery.

On a more sartorial note, orange is definitely not one of my usual favorite colors, but when Taylor offered up this pretty textured dress for swap, I couldn't pass it up!  I paired it with a beautiful hand beaded necklace from Dus's fair trade shop Mitla Moda, along with my favorite meowmaid pin and a flower crown I made.  Dus said this necklace reminded her of my pink wig, so I of course had to throw that on too to complete the crazy sorbet colored party!

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!

Watermelon Coconut

Ah, Monday.  Can't say I'm super happy to see you!  One of the things that often helps get me through a long week is waiting for fun mail to arrive, as was the case with these amazing sunglasses from Kameleonz that arrived a few days ago.



Outfit Details:
"Coconut" Sunnies - c/o Kameleonz
Red Oxfords - c/o American Apparel
Woven Bracelet - Mitla Moda
Skirt + Suspenders - thrifted
Boater Hat - Brixton via Karmaloop
Watermelon Tank - Target (girls)

     If you've been reading my blog for more than five seconds, you know that I love me some cute sunnies. My collection is ever growing and I love how they can instantly change the look of an outfit.  Cat eyes make for a retro look, oversized round frames make me feel like some sort of celebrity, and these clear mirrored pair from Kameleonz make me feel like I'm headed to the beach!  Plus with product names like Coconut, Lava, and North Shore, they immediately make me feel like I am with my one true love... Hawaii!

     What really makes this pair stand out for me over the other sunglasses I own though is the fact that they have interchangeable arms that you can switch in and out to match whatever you're wearing.  Here I am wearing the clear Coconut pair with "hemlock green" arms, but they also came with clear and tangerine arms that I can swap in whenever it suits my fancy.  Kameleonz is also offering everyone 20% off right now with the code SUMMER at checkout :)
   
These arrived just in time for me to take camping this weekend, but unfortunately they were unnecessary, as it was raining and overcast a huge part of the time.  Oh well, we still tried to make the best of it!  Have a great start to your week!
