shirt: Lazy Oaf // jeans: Gap // shoes: UO // sunglasses: Betsey Johnson from TJ Maxx // handmade totebag
I don't have hundreds of vintage (or new) dresses, I only wear jewelry occasionally, and I rarely (never) wear any shoes but flats. That being said, I really do enjoy clothing and personal style even if I tend to dress on the simpler side. I choose things that I like and that stand out to me, and I love incorporating hand made pieces into outfits.

I embroidered and sewed this tote bag when I was in high school. And it's been one of my favorite things I've made ever since. This t-shirt is one of my favorites, too. I've been in love with Lazy Oaf and their graphic clothing for a long time. When I visited London with my dad a few years ago I was so excited to visit their actual store and picked up this shirt. And if you had told me in high school that my favorite pair of pants when I was 22 would be pink...I wouldn't have believed it. I was not big on pink in high school.

When we leave Saratoga, one of the things I will miss the most is walking to this park from our apartment. It's such a nice thing to do together in the evening. My favorite part of the park is the higher level that has benches and spots that look out over the entire park and a little bit of downtown.

Hope everyone has had a nice start to their week so far. It's been hard for me to get to work after Douglas's four day weekend and all the fun stuff we did. And maybe also because I'm really sunburned from Six Flags...


  1. Great outfit! I like the color of those jeans and the shape of those shades, and that tote is just adorable:)
    And good for you! I hardly ever wear heels either. And I really don't know why people think it's worth it to ruin their feet like that. Besides, there are plenty of cute flats out there;)

  2. great tote! I especially love the little yellow monster in the corner :) I love the color of that t-shirt with the shade of those jeans. perfect!

  3. liking the tote bag and tee! I hear you on the flats - cannot wear heels to save my life! Plus a massive thank you for the link to Lazy Oaf - i have just spent a considerable amount of time on their site making a list of all the things I want - there are many :)

  4. Hey, I just found your blog through Little Chief Honeybee and I'm totally crazy about it (I just spent like 20 minutes trawling through your archives) I love your travel posts! This outfit is lovely, those shoes are great (I love pretty flats) and your bag is very cute in a slightly creepy way. Anyways, just thought I'd say hi! xo

  5. Love all of this, looks super comfy and that tote is fantastic!


  6. That tote is so great! And ohhh my gosh I am loooooving that shirt!!! Made me smile big big!! :)
