Daily Style/Over the Weekend mega post...

Sunny, Sunny, Sunny!
Sunnies: F21 (5.80)
Letter Necklace: Anniversary Gift (from UO)
Oxford: free from friend
Belt: Thrifted (2.00)
Skirt (actually a dress): UO (60.00)
Brogues: UO (19.99)
This dress has been the most expensive purchase I've made in a few months (I actually bought it awhile ago), and I wish I could say it was worth it...but it's on sale on the website now for, like, $30 buck-a-roos. Oh well, lesson learned. It's been pretty versatile though. It was incredibly hot out today, a good day for the AC! Not much to report, work was frustrating as usual- nothing to drag on about here though...

But, I did have a fantastic weekend:
Friday, I drove 'back home' to Maine to visit my family. I met my mother at Pine Point Beach in Scarborough where we took a walk and lounged on the sand (image 1). We drove the rest of the way home in the early evening and ate shrimp and watched old Alfred Hitchcock movies (still fantastic!). I was up early Saturday where I spent some time in the garden with the chickens (image 2) and ate breakfast under wildflowers (image 3). Saturday was also my sister Caroline's 21st birthday! My mom, sister and I spent the day kayaking on Bickford Pond (images 4 thru 8)- we kayaked 4 miles, swam in the pond, and finished the day with some cake. Sunday, I stopped by my Dad's to say hi and then headed home to watch some more fireworks with Chris. The weather was perfect, and I realized how much I miss life in Maine. I love being in my mother's garden, and taking walks, and actually being able to see the stars! I grew up in the middle of nowhere- the closest house is a mile away- in a one stop light town, and as much as I know I couldn't live there full time, I do miss it a lot- especially in the summer!
