This doesn't seem to bode well for the blog, huh? Maybe. I'm going to take a break from my history lessons and whatever it is I usually talk about (presidents, how pretty Emma is, how I don't know how to dress myself like an adult), to just chat about things I love right now. Lets get started.
60's mini/shift dresses.
I decided a few months ago that this was to be the summer of shift dresses and minis. After many years of passing on this style ( I was convinced it didn't look good on me ), I've 160% accepted it. When I saw Wes Anderson's trailer for 'Moonrise Kingdom', I knew I was on the right path.
If I had my druthers, I'd be the boyscout. Everything in this picture is perfect. Mini dress with
peter pan collar, knee high socks, everything. I'm whole-heartedly determined
to have this be my summer
Currently looking for this particular dress on Etsy. In love. Also currently looking for a
lighthouse to stand atop wearing said dress.
Well, I just died. This is the epitome of the kinds of dresses I'm
planning my summer around. Yes. I said that.
I don't ask questions when I start a collection. I just let it happen. But good heavens, how cool are these?!?!?!
Not my personal collection, mines better. Just saying.
What is it about these that make me squeal with delight? I just love them so! Most of the ones I have are from insurance companies, banks, and my favorites, funeral homes. I suppose I'm mostly enamored with the fact that companies used to essentially hand these out.
LOOK AT THAT THERMOMETER! ITS JUST SO GOOD.
This particular compact.
I may be able to claim the world's second largest collection of compacts, BUT I DON'T HAVE THIS ONE. This particular compact has haunted my dreams. Its so beautiful, and I haven't seen one like it.
What a perfect color combo!
Airline Swizzle Sticks.
Well, really any swizzle stick. But especially airline ones. I am a huge proponent of swizzle sticks. Why wouldn't I be? That shirley temple isn't going to stir itself.
Perfection. I love having swizzle sticks for every mood and occasion.
Of course there are many MANY more items that I find myself obsessed with every day. These are just a few of the items that I've been thinking about lately. What are you super into right now? Do your interests change often? Let me know! I want to hear about what items you can't get enough of this summer!
Until next time...
