you had to know that i was fond of you

happy thursday, take a deep breath because the week is halfway thru! i have been working and counting down the weeks until my vacation with matt and my family! on july 3rd we are jetting off to marthas vineyard because my parents have a summer home there. it will be just the best!

i found this sailor shirt this weekend and was pretty excited about it. i have a soft spot for polka dots and sailor designs only, so you can imagine my excitement when i found it. sailor vintage is much harder to find than polka dotted vintage! also, the shirt is for sale here.

okay, goodbye and i love you!

my 10 fav. fashion blogs of now

i have seen some 'top ten' blog posts around the web, and decided to post mine. they are constantly changing, but for today, i am adoring these blogs!

1. fancy treehouse. coury always brightens my day. she is so creative with colors and so thrifty... but always makes sure to add little delicate touches! she is my fav.
2. flashes of style. bonnie is the sweetest, and it totally shows in her style. she wears the most adorable vintage get-ups, and i pretty much add all of her outfits to my inspirations folder :)
3. tick tock vintage. i almost had a heart attack i was so excited when i found veronika's blog. she is always wearing such classic outfits mostly thrifted or fixed/taken in by hand! i would love to spend a day having her show me around the best places for vintage in philly!
4. mellow mayoness. i just recently found mayo's blog, and cannot get enough of it. she dresses like a bright little happy grown up-kid, and always wears loud patterns and the best bags ever!
5. wish wish wish. what else is there to say about carrie except that she is exceptionally beautiful and dresses to the tee. she travels all over, and never leaves without taking perfect pictures!
6. lost in the haze. Jo's blog always inspires me. she is so naturally pretty and has her own vintage style that i cannot get enough of!
7. crimson rosella. kirstin has officially coined the perfect teachers style. she can pull of anything from a vintage grandma sheek skirt and collared shirt ensemble to a bright colored summertime outfit!
8. kristine or polly. this is another recent find. kristine is a fascinating american girl who is living in japan with her husband. she always posts the cutest outfit pictures mixed with a perfect combo of lifestyle pictures!
9. like spinning plates. claire is an inspiration. i have read her blog for a few months now, and she always manages to find the best vintage... and anything with polka dots that she wears always melts my heart!

10. the girl never gets older. i swear this IS the cutest gal ever. she always looks like a 50's pinup girl and makes me want to get more creative with my hair!

i have been waiting to share, but last month i was part of a video shoot for fuze's new campaign on south beach! i attended the shoot with my best buddy sara of fake empire. the women shooting us were really sweet, and all-in-all it was a great time! sorry for saying "like" so many times i was so nervous!

anyway, this weekend i will be in northern florida at the beach with matt and "his boys" because there is surf! have a great weekend! :)

today i am working. i haven't shared yet, but i am in the process of helping my boss put all of her grandmothers old recipes into the computer and we are making a whole book out of it! it is rather creative, although it does take a long time. i can't wait to share the finished product when we are done! also, i revamped my store again! like it?
