I finally got the relaxing weekend I have been yearning for! Saturday we just got into R's car and drove into the Rockies to see where the road would take us. It is so breathtaking and I still am amazed that this astounding amount of natural beauty is so close at hand! It is crazy to me that I can be wearing a summer dress and still be so close to thesensnowy peaks, it sure makes for a terrific backdrop. We took a few hours with a bunch of stops for exploring and taking in the views, and ended up in Lyons, Colorado, a cute little town with antique and ice cream shops. We grabbed some lunch and beer at the Original Oskar Blues Brewery - perfection!
Head Scarf: vintage/ thrifted
Jacket: gift from R's mom
So, the other amazing thing about this weekend is I finally bought a DSLR camera! After months of saving and research, I chose the Nikon D5100. It is currently charging and I cannot wait to try it out and start sharing some better quality photography with you guys! (I currently use a Panasonic Lumix point and shoot, which is nice for its price and kind but does not have the manual focus options and quality pictures I am looking to get into!)
On another note, I am in love with this little vintage dress I shortened, which is now available in my shop! I shortened it from a mid calf length and it just turned into a completely new dress. It was VERY hard to part with to put in my shop, but that is what I originally bought it for, and I am sure it will find a lovely new home! The shoes are also a new acquisition from target- floral, super comfy, and only 10 bucks! Can't beat that! I hope you all had a beautiful and relaxing weekend!
