Welcoming June - Shope Update & Giveaway!

Hip hip hooray for Fridays!  Just stopping in with a bunch of new pretty vintage from the shop!  I have been loving vintage swimsuits, summery picnic prints, and of course, peter pan collars! You can click on the image or the link to be taken directly to the listing.


     In related news, my blogging friend Elana of Room 334 is hosting a huge giveaway over on her blog to celebrate her one year blogging anniversary!  If you like any of the vintage you see here, you should hop on over to her blog, because I am giving away a $30 gift card to my shop and there are tons of other amazing prizes as well! If you are a follower of my blog, you have already completed one of the easy-peasy steps for entering!  Good luck  :)
     I will be spending my weekend helping R move into his new apartment.  I am going to show up at his house tonight wearing a sign around my neck that says "will work for pizza and beer".  That sounds like a fair trade for some heavy lifting, right?
Have a great weekend!

The Great Auditorium

   Hooray for it being Wednesday already! I hope the work week if flying by for everyone. Here is another round of pictures taken while I was home in New Jersey.  These were taken at a historic landmark by my parents house in Ocean Grove called The Great Auditorium, which is even more impressive on the inside!
Outfit Details: Blouse & Necklace - c/o August Wrinkle // Pants - c/o American Apparel //  
Shoes - vintage, borrowed from Mom // Bag - Vintage, Dooney & Bourke

We also snapped a few pictures in front of the start of the summer tents that go up around town.  They are little tent houses that people live in during the summer months there, and there's row upon row of colorful striped awnings! I was wearing a new blouse and necklace that the lovely people at August Wrinkle sent to me, and I can't get enough of the pretty sequined collar. You can expect to see lots more of it this summer!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

Bed & Breakfast

Hello & Happy Memorial Day!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful long weekend here in the states.  Just wanted to stop in quickly to share some more snaps from my vacation home to New Jersey last week.
Outfit Details: Red Linen Dress - Vintage - for sale in shop here! // Shoes & Scarf - Vintage

    We stayed one night at this adorable Bed and Breakfast in Cape May.  As usual, I decided to match my backdrop in a vintage red linen dress from my shop, paired with a vintage scarf for a bit of a nautical vibe.  Even though I adore the mostly pastel Victorians around Cape May, I loved our primary colored bed and breakfast as well.    
     Anyway, I am off to hopefully get a bit of sunshine, work on the shop, and enjoy my day off!

Abbey Road

Happy Friday!
    This week was great.   Because I was still home in New Jersey for the first part of the week, I only had a three day work week, followed by a three day weekend. This is something I could get used to!  Do you guys have any fun plans for the weekend?

Outfit Details: Blouse - c/o August Wrinkle // Pinafore Dress - Vintage // 
Boots - Vintage, borrowed from Mom // Purse - Vintage, Dooney & Bourke

     The idea behind this shoot was to be based on The Beatles Abbey Road album cover, which was my moms brilliant idea!  She was quite the Beatles fan girl growing up (and still is). She took all my pictures for me while I was home too - it was so nice not having to lug a tripod home in my suitcase with me!  I donned my most London-esque clothing I had with me, which was all vintage besides this beautiful Peter Pan collared blouse from the lovely people over at August Wrinkle.  I think I have worn it three times since I got it a week ago because its adorable and goes with everything!  The outfit needed a pop of color so I grabbed a heart balloon leftover from my brother's graduation party decor for a bit of fun.
      Also wanted to let you guys know the lovely Gabrielle from the blog Hippie Go Lucky interviewed me and did a feature on my shop, which was so sweet of her! You can read it here if you are interested!
     Anyway, I hope you all have a beautiful weekend! It is supposed to be in the mid 80s here and mostly sunny.  My game plan is to be outside as much as possible, while actually doing as little as possible!

Snapshots: Postcards from Cape May

Now that I am back in Colorado, I thought it would be fun to show some snapshots I took from Cape May, New Jersey when I visited last week. I am thinking of making "Snapshots" a new little series on my blog to encourage me to develop my photography skills a bit more! Sometimes I am so focused on getting those outfit shots in that I seem to miss out on capturing a lot of the beautiful things that surround me.  So without further adeau, here's the first round: Postcards from Cape May!



 







    My family was here for two days to celebrate my brother's college graduation.  Thankfully, my brother did not want to go to the ceremony so we got to do a fun little mini vacation instead! On the second day, my family used the Beach Cruiser bikes from the Bed and Breakfast we stayed at to ride around town.  I opted to venture out on my own for a bit with my camera instead to capture the cute and kitschy beach environment along with the amazing Victorian architecture that the area is known for. 
    After my walk I met back up with my family and we ate the best fish tacos perhaps ever at a colorful little roadside stand.  We then trekked back down to the beach to relax and enjoy the sunshine before we started making our way back home.  Perfection!
