A Golden Afternoon

I'm secretly in love with all of the cliché family photographs taken at the beach. Everyone is in a white button down and khaki shorts; they all have big obnoxious smiles on their faces as if being a family there and then is the best thing anyone could be doing. These memories hung on stair cases serve to remind everyone of, what then was, a simpler time, or so they would like to think.
No family here, just me with my take on these photographs. I took the opportunity to wear this white J-Crew dress and spend some time with the boy on our last day in the sun. There was something so irresistible about this vintage hat, I knew it was perfect for the beach!
There is something so serene about 6:45pmThe sun sets slowly, casting golden light in all directions.

Wearing; J-Crew dress, Vintage hat, shoes and necklace of unknown origin.

Just a touch of tacky..

I couldn't resist this ridiculously tacky combo for a restaurant aptly named Tacky Jack's! My mother and I visit this place every time we visit the Gulf Coast; by this point, it's tradition! Mother always told me to never wear pink and red together, it just so happens to be one of my favorite color combinations!

Wearing; ModCloth dress, H&M heels, Jason Wu for Target clutch, necklace of unknown origin, Vintage earrings.

Have a look around

A peek into my memory card shows the marvelous trip we have been having. The place we are staying is beautiful, the shopping is magnificent, and don't even get me started on the food! The boy came down and joined us, giving my mother a chance to slip away and get the rest she deserved. I cannot get over the perfect weather and the scenery! This should be one perfect week. 

Best (Gulf) Coast

It's been a long year and an impromptu vacation was long overdue. My mother and I decided to ditch our responsibilities and go to the beach for a few days. I couldn't resist pairing a bright cardigan with an equally bright dress for a combo that screamed Summer for a breezy walk on the beach. 

Wearing: UrbanOutfitter's dress, Banana Republic cardigan, unknown shoes, EarthBound anklet/bracelets, Golden Temple necklace, Vintage earrings

Instagram update!

These sure have been a busy and eventful past couple of weeks! I feel these three pictures sum it up very nicely. 
1) I graduated High-school! I actually managed to give a classic look to my generic robe with some red heels and a pair of pearl earrings! I'm very glad to have graduated with my best friend, Haley (Pictured). 
2) I'm very glad my roommate for next year and I get along so well. Anna came to Birmingham for some hanging out, and I feel that rooming with her will be effortless. 
3) I took this picture outside the Rec center at the University of Alabama during my freshman orientation this week.
