parasol

There are days when the creative juices do not flow, and today is one of those days. So I'll leave you with the photos. I bought this dress three summers ago when I lived in Mexico (it's from Etsy though) and wore it a lot. Then at some point it disappeared into a cupboard and was never seen again, until I rescued it on Sunday morning.

Also, for anyone feeling cross-eyed and out of sorts and needing a laugh, I recommend "The 21 Worst Things in the World."

Yep, that is all.

I'm super envious of that parasol! I always want to try carrying one around during the summer because it's so hot!

Parasols are THE accessory, I've been wanting one for so long and haven't found the perfect one yet! Yours is gorgeous :)

I love the pretty simple summer dress too, perfect for the hot weather we have these days!

I'm so jealous you lived in mexico ;)

I want a parasol like this! It's a beautiful contrast with the simple dress and the shapes on it.

Ah, we all have those days. Your dress is wonderful though, and goes perfectly with that umbrella! The green embroidery on your dress really brings out your eyes :)

I completely understand your current mood because it's pretty much exactly how I've been feeling when it comes to my blog lately. Maybe it's an overdose of summer? Who knows! You look lovely if that is any consolation ;) xmeg

your hair is so pretty, I love natural shades of brown. And that dress is definitely a keeper! you have such an eye for simple yet unique, casual yet refined dresses!

Kallie, Happy Honey and Lark said...

Oh, I know those days. Sigh. Lack of creativity plagues me as well right now. However you do look very pretty and I love the sort of art deco vibe I'm getting from the dress' details and parasol.

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

Another beauty of blog days past. And I totally agree with Kallie about the art deco vibe! Rediscovering something that's been tucked away in the wardrobe is such a great feeling, isn't it? Just this summer I dug out a t-shirt with a simple floral print and I've been wearing it once or twice a week for months. It's just like buying something new, only better.

That is a seriously excellent parasol!

Ah, the parasol. One should never go out without it at summer :D
