Country Belle






As KW mentioned, we are both on lovely seaside vacations, though we are not actually together. I won't definitively speak for KW, but I can only hope she is having an equally relaxing and beautiful week away from the desk. I woke up early this morning and took a swim with my grandmother, came across a sweet baby deer on the way home from the pool and then shared a wonderful breakfast of Greek yogurt, fresh berries and granola with my grandparents. We're going to the market later and will perhaps take a little walk along the beach with my dog. It's amazing what a gorgeous view and a lack of city noise can do for a soul.

This outfit is super summery and casual. Cut off jean shorts may not be the classiest thing in my wardrobe, but somehow they feel nostalgically American in the summertime. I've worn this top before to work with the sleeves pulled up, so this was kind of fun to be able to get a few freckles on my shoulders out in the sun (with lots and lots of sunscreen of course!)

Thanks for being patient with our somewhat sporadic posting!

Top: Forever21; Shorts: GAP; Sandals: Target
