what i wore: a day in the sun

happy wednesday! i want to thank everyone for all the really amazing comments on my last post. i can't tell you how grateful i am to have such a great supportive group of friends and readers that i can share my tattoo journey with. thank you everyone for all the encouraging and sweet comments, you don't know how much they mean to me!
saturday tom and i ran around town got some shit done and also popped into the salvation army because they were having a 50% off sale! nothing better then that, right?  i made out with some great things but i was really excited about the rainbow pin i found and it went perfectly with my outfit that day!
after our errands, we grabbed a few beers and headed to the park next to our house and enjoyed the sun and did some people watching. it was really nice and we both needed to just relax and be in each others company. since the sun is setting earlier we are trying to take advantage of being outside as much as possible however hard that is since saturday is my only day off. hopefully soon we will be taking a much needed surfing trip! oh how i miss the water!
since i have been so busy i have brought a few items to be tailored. this skirt was one of them. i love the color so much and when i thrifted it, it was just a bit too long for my liking so when the zipper of my bridesmaid broke i brought it. if i hadn't, then this skirt would still be in the "to be fixed" pile.

detatils:
top: trifted
skirt: thrifted
pin & earrings: thrifted
shoes: lotta of stockholm

  7. I love the way the aqua color of the skirt looks with your striped top, and your pin really makes it a wonderful outfit!

    I am glad you "stopped to smell the roses", I need a day like that.

    I was trying to get more sun in today, as well. I need some extra sun in my life.

  13. that rainbow pin was a define score! It reminds me of rainbow brite. She was my childhood hero. Moving on. I am clearly reading your posts backwards which is why I have no idea what the first bit means but I think there is a tattoo story coming my way so I'm off to check it out. word.

  15. Oh my gosh my 'to be fixed' pile is enormous!! Thinking about starting a Projects post on my blog just so I am forced to get some of it out of the way! ha. Love the red and blue colors together, reminds me of summer (which feels like so long ago for me already-sad!)
