Summer Pastels

How was everyone's weekend?  Mine was way too short as usual, but I am kind of looking forward to having a normal week.  We had a cooler, rainy weekend here in Colorado which was a very refreshing change of pace to the scorching heat we have been having!  We still managed to ride bikes and eat frozen yogurt though, so our routine didn't change much.
Outfit Details:
Bracelet: c/o Jilzara Jewelry
Collar Necklace: Ampris Loves (won in a giveaway!)
Skirt: vintage (in shop soon!)
Heels: Vintage, for sale in shop
Top: hand-me-down
Sunglasses: Target

These pictures were taken at an old abandoned barn that I pass often on the way to work.  I want so badly to explore the inside, but as you can see, there is a huge no trespassing sign on it, and we had to go under caution tape to even get this close.  I planned most of this outfit around a beautiful bracelet I received from a company called Jilzara Jewelry.  It's a mother daughter team that specializes in handmade polymer clay beads.  I of course love the little floral details and how each bead is unique.  Look at the process they go through to make each bead- SO COOL!  You should definitely stop by their site and take a look at all the fun pieces they have!


I am also wearing an adorable collar necklace I won in a giveaway on the beautiful blog Blooming Leopold.  The collar is made by the talented Carri who runs the etsy shop Ampris Loves. I have been admiring these collars from afar for quite some time now, so I was so excited to win this giveaway! I have barely taken it off since I got it! Carri also has a beautifully curated vintage selection, so make sure to stop by her shop and take a look around!
      The last thing I want to mention is that this little top I am wearing is near and dear to my heart! It was given to me as a hand me down from my childhood babysitter Karyn, and I think it was actually her favorite top in high school in the early 90s! Karyn had a huge part in my up-bringing and taught me valuable life lessons. A classic example: if I ate my food with my hands, she would make me take my smelly socks off and eat wearing the them on my hands! HAHA! She now has a beautiful munchkin all of her own, Ina Leeds, who I cannot wait to meet, and whom I am sure will have impeccable table manners ;)
Happy Monday!

  1. I LOVE old, abandoned barns. Seriously one of my favorite things is to drive down country roads and spot them. This one is such a beauty! And so are you! Your outfit is so perfectly "summer" and those pink shoes are my absolute favorite part. Adorable.

  9. What an amazing way to make jewellery, it reminds me of seaside rock (not sure if that's just a British thing but it's a candy stick with writing all the way through)! Your outfit is so pretty too, very elegant and ladylike. :)

  12. Old barns like this are just so enchanting! There's something so mysterious about abandoned places that I can never help but poke around.

    This whole outfit has me in swoon mode - pastels and that little pop of blues and greens in your bracelet, then completed with the coral shoes is such a brilliant combination. What a sweet hand-me-down from your babysitter. I love pieces that have a special little story behind them:) xx Marisa

    LOVE your shoes... actually I just really love your whole outfit :)

  25. I can't believe you still have that top!! I loved it then and STILL love it now- especially on you~ I love how you said I wore it in the "90's" like it was soooo long ago. Oh, wait, it was over 20 years ago... I just had my 20 year highschool reunion! AAAAGGH!

    OK back to you- of course I adore this whole look and everything you're doing on here. Glad to know I had some tiny little part in it. (Even if it is never wearing socks so I can't make you put them on your hands when you eat :)
