Friday Favorites...On a Saturday

I'm not sure if this image could really get much better. Pewee Herman, Cindy Lauper, mega mixed prints. Golf. Suffice to say, it makes me really happy. I'm posting this visual explosion in lieu of my usual Instagram or cat picture because I just got back into town after a glorious, technology free ten days in Maine and New Hampshire and my phone stayed off for almost the entire time. I was too busy for phone pictures, too wrapped up in reuniting with my amazing family to tweet. It was the perfect vacation. And I'm totally exhausted and incredibly sunburned. As much as it would have been great to stay up there through the weekend, I'm thankful to have two days to decompress before going back to work. I'll be sharing some pictures from our trip on Monday, in the meantime here's what else I've been up to:

Reading:
I'm switching between In One Person by John Irving and A Girl Walks Into a Bar by Rachel Dratch. I picked up both from the library before we left for New England, with the intention of reading them on various beaches...which turned out to be delusional. I've barely cracked the spines of both, but I'm excited about them! Yes I am!

Eating:
So many crustaceans.

Regreting:
Not wearing enough sunscreen.

Anticipating:
Getting all my film developed (and keeping my fingers crossed it comes out). Also looking forward to styling up my thrift finds from up north. Only came back with three, but so excited about them!

Coveting:
This pretty maxi dress from Ruche
This beautiful blue dress from Spotted Moth 

This awesome dual-tone tote from BaliELF

 Miss Universe Print Mini Skirt  - Click Image to Close
 This pretty galaxy print skirt from Lulu's.
Pennant - Triangle Necklace with Copper Chain & Gemstone: Green Aventurine / Blue Turquoise / Orange Jade
These pretty penant necklaces from InfinEight
yellow pocket dress
This cute mod mini from Bluesville, USA

// These are the perfect transitional boot for fall, would look so cute with a flow-y dress now, and jeans and a bulky sweater later on.
// I love the 90's silhouette of this striped maxi dress.
// Perfect fancy earrings.
// Speaking of perfect earrings.
// I love this cat print.

See you Monday!

Sorry to hear that you got sunburnt on your vacation, but I can't wait to see all the photos! It can be so nice to get a way from technology for a while.

John Irving is my absolute favourite! I am so excited to read that book too! Another suggestion, I don't normally read sci fi stuff but My boyfriend got me reading one series. Ender's Game! It is aaaaaweeeesome! I started after he already read like 3 or 4 of the books and am now way past him haha! Can't stop! But In One Person is my next read.

P.S. my boyfriend just saw that peewee pic and burst out laughing and was like "for some reason I just pictured PeeWee hanging out at our campfire at our friends cottage." Who WOULDN'T want that....HAHAH! :D

Happy weekend :)
