The Long Weekend

 Dress: Vintage

Today I decided to dress how I want to feel, so I slipped on this gorgeous flower print dress. I just adore how it has a slight pop art feeling. And the colors are perfect for a bright and sunny day like today. I hope everyone in America is enjoying the long weekend. For retail workers like me weekends like this consist of working overtime and dealing with drunk people (especially because I work at the beach.) So it's a long weekend for me also but in a completely different way!

that's so amazing that you work at the beach... although, has it lost it's appeal at all since you are there everyday? love these photos. the location is perfect. the second from the bottom is my favourite. something about the way your framed by those palm trees in the background is really lovely. xx

Such a light summery dress, it's so 90s-esque darling that you grounded the outfit with the socks. :)

Oooh la la! What a perfect dress for the setting! I really like how you took such a summery dress then... wore socks with it! But it works so well.

Sorry that this is such a long weekend for ya. At least you're making that money!

And you never cease to amaze me with how beautiful you look every day lady. Love the dress. I think one of the best parts of blogging is that it reminds me to dress how I want to feel as well, so that when I do take photos, I'll be a bit happier :]

heleen said...

I don't mean to sound creepy but you've got a gorrrgeous body! Everything seems to suit you... Okay that did sound a bit creepy but I know few people who would be able to pull off that dress with platforms and socks. You inspire me to be more daring with my style and put on a cheerful dress once in a while.
