I'd forgotten that I hadn't worn this dress on my blog yet. Clearly, I have a thing for hot air balloons (this makes two dresses, two tops, and two necklaces with hot air balloons on them!). And this beautiful necklace (a sweet and generous gift from my cousins, Abby and David) is absolutely perfect with it! Even the colors match!
I also have a thing for carousels.
I found a bunch of wild raspberries growing in my yard!!! We used to have a bunch on a hill by our driveway, but my mom got rid of them so she could garden there. I was really upset about it at the time, since I used to pick berries and eat them a lot. Imagine my surprise upon finding these in a bunch of spots in the back! I want to pick them.
I grabbed this new wicker purse on a whim as I was heading outside. I love that it's bigger than my other one (the inside is green and white gingham checks!). In retrospect, I realized that it could represent the basket of the hot air balloon. That definitely wasn't my thought at the time, but it's funny how you subconsciously decide what goes well with an outfit.
I really love this print, too. I wish it were a little longer, though. My slip was unintentionally showing in a lot of these pictures!
Like this one, for example.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! My Sunday was pretty busy (we had to pick up our dog from our boarder's house - and omg I saw the cutest lab puppies ever - and we had lunch with my aunt, and then went to see my dad's band play), so I didn't get a chance to post yesterday. Our family party on Saturday was pretty crazy, but it was wonderful to see my extended family. I'll post pictures from what I wore during the week - and I'll have a special surprise along with them!
Have a great Monday!
