Oh, My Darling Harbor

Outfit Details:
Sweater & Dress: Kohl's
Skirt: Thrifted
Necklace: Lace Affair
Boots: DSW

With the most recent hop across the pond, I wanted to see if I could ditch the old snap and shoot camera and use only my camera phone. So when I visited Maine this past August I tested it out and I was surprisingly pleased with my results. What it boils down to is that now I need to carry one less thing. Hurrah!

Also this skirt should get special mention. One of my best friends bought it for me and then my awesome mom helped make some size adjustments. So basically now whenever I wear it now I have superpowers.

Have a good weekend!

Picnic Dress by the Lake

Outfit Details:
Pretty - Pretty Picnic Dress & Luxe and Wanderlust Necklace & Best of Times Heel: Modcloth

Lakeside is one of my favorite places. Often I've documented my favorite outfit there (like this one and this one). This dress is still awaiting the perfect occasion to show it off, which, like the title, I imagine to be a picnic.

Blue in the Cemetery

 Outfit Details:
Vest & Tights: TJmaxx
Dress: Kohl's
From the Same Cloth Boots: Modcloth
Necklace: Lace Affair

This is still one of my favorite places. Being back in my home town for a couple of month this summer meant I got to walk down memory lane. This spot was a frequent participant in some shenanigans with my best friend (meaning we took many walks here and told each other scary stories).

Actually, October is when it's most beautiful. The trees there are the most vibrant. Til next year, little cemetery.

Little Town Murals

 Outfit Details:
Cardigan: Target
Shirt & Jeans: Kohl's
Boots: TJmaxx
Necklace: Modcloth

This mural popped up in my hometown, a few years back. There was a big to do about it. They talked about banning murals altogether, small town and all that. But the controversy calmed and the mural still stands. I like it. I like the color (literal and otherwise) that it brings to the place where I grew up. Also, of course, it's a great background for outfit photos.

Those Copper Beachs

Outfit Details:
Jacket & Boots & Necklace: Gifts
Shirt & Tights: TJmaxx
Afternoon at the Oasis Dress: Modcloth

One of my favorite things about Maine beaches are the rocks. There is something wildly alluring about them and not just in Maine. Rocks along any shore are thrilling to me. I am somewhat of a nature girl, because the moment I'm in it I get all dewy-eyed and breathless. That's one great thing about Prague, so far, despite being a city terrain there are nature and parks abound.

My Backyard

Outfit Details:
Cardigan: Target
   Shirt: Kohl's
Jeans: TJmaxx
Boots: DSW
Pirates of the Carribean Necklace: Claire's
Earrings: Modcloth

As the title so explains, this is (was) my backyard. The hammock was the best, however I've left the yard and hammock in Maine.

Right now, I'm getting situated to Prague, which means I'm trying finding the best cafe and the cheapest bookstore around. A little cold has slowed down my pace, but nothing can really keep an explorer down for too long.

Until next time,

The Girl with the Fire Hair

Outfit Details:
Shirt & Jeans: TJmaxx
Boots: DSW
Necklace & Ring: Gifts

True Story: when my hair was first dyed like this I was extremely self conscious. I felt like everyone was staring and judging me for my "wild" hair. So, I combated the feeling with wearing my darkest shade lipstick, and somehow it worked. Now the flame hair has become just another part of my appearance. Which basically means, if you want to try a wild look, just try it and eventually it might not seem so wild.

B(l)ack on the Beach

 Outfit Details:
Jacket & Dress & Tights: TJmaxx
Boots: DSW
Necklace: Modcloth

I don't know why I love that last photo so much. Maybe because it reflects most of the faces I make on camera. The ones you end up seeing are the rare moments where my hand isn't hovering in mid air and my eyes aren't crossed.

Visiting Quebec City

Outfit Details:
Top & Boots & Tights: TJmaxx
Schooltime Sparkle Skirt: Modcoth
Necklace: Lace Affair

I went to Quebec this past March, cross that adventure off my bucket list, and (tried) to brush up on my French. I stayed in a cute little hotel near the center of town (Auberge Place D'armes) and loved it. The city was still packed with snow and ice - and ever as beautiful. I inhaled espresso and poutine every meal time and found poutine flavored potato chips to take back home. Old Quebec definitely became one of my favorites places. 

The photos are mostly from my phone, because while I remembered my camera, I forgot my tripod. It was a balancing act on top of clothes and books and tables to get the right angle- in the end they came out well. My camera is a little worse for wear nowadays and I might have to look into switching permanently to my phone for these types of pictures. 

But, of course, the true point of the story is that if you ever get the chance to visit Quebec City, do it. Even if it's winter, cause it's just as gorgeous.

Bridges, Of Course

Outfit Details:
Coat & Shirt: Kohl's
Craft Party Dress: Modcloth
Boots: DSW
Necklace: Hottopic
Peter Pan Scarf: Amazon

Bridges make for great photo taking. I would always drive by this bridge on my way to the big city. And if we've learned nothing else, we know that I'm always on the look out for a great outfit backdrop. 

The outfit itself, I'm rather proud of because all of these (say for the boots, but they don't count) have been in my closet for years. I love finding an old piece and a new way to wear it.  

P.S. the scarf is also new. I completely forgot it was in the photos.

How Not to Stay Still

Outfit Details:
Coat: Kohl's
Science Fair Flair Dress & From the Same Cloth Boots: Modcloth
Tights: Target
Scarf: TJmaxx
Necklace: Lace Affair

My, oh my, how the days have changed us. These photos are from December if that says anything. I disappeared for a while, which was the blame of a crashed computer and real life changes. My computer is running again and my life is continuing to change. Neither am I against.

These photos are from a cold winter's eve when the sky enticed me to come out for a while. The dress became a staple in my collection, especially since my work changed from uniforms to business casual. The boots are my favorite booties, only in a different color. The original color choice can be seen here and here.

I'll try to keep you guys up to date on my life changes. Currently, I've made the transfer from Maine to Ohio, temporarily. Later I'll be getting in a plane and going to Europe for a while. I doubt that surprises anyone. I've said it before I'm not good at staying still.

The Everyday Days

Outfit Details:
Jacket & Shirt: TJmax
Jeans: Forever21
Boots: DWS
Necklace: Lace Affair
Ring: Belgium

So this is what I actually wear on a more every day style. For while I love dresses and skirts, my adventures often require more "practical" clothing. Sometimes, really, you just need jeans and then probably combat boots - but that just might be me.

The Harbor's Sunsets

Outfit Details:
Jacket & Shirt: TJmaxx
Skirt: Kohl's
Gloves & Tights: Target
Boots: DSW 

You might not be able to tell, but it was freezing and it was the middle of December. I've made the walk down to this little harbor many times. When I find it at a late hour like this, right at sunset, it is at its best.

Storms and Skies

Outfit Details:
Jacket & Dress & Boots: TJmaxx
Tights & Socks & Umbrella: Target
Scarf: Paris

Have I mentioned how much I love rain? Okay, okay I like all weather. Some might be more fun than others. Little rain showers and snow falls in the morning. I cruise around with an umbrella at my side, never knowing when I might want to take a stroll in the rain. I'm trying to remember to stop more often and just take in the sights. So many drives through Maine have led to the most spectacular scenes. There's so much magic in the sky. By the way, I like snow even after we fought because it caused my car to hit a stationary object. But that's winter for you.

Fall Mornings

Outfit Details:
Sweater & Shirt: TJmaxx
Shorts & Boots & Rings: Forever21
Tights & Socks: Target
Necklace: Lace Affair

The hair was chopped off and the bottom bleached. I've had my regular red hair for so long, I was glad to change it up a little. By now most of the color has gone, so I'm planning to go a little bit wilder next time. 

As I'm editing these warm fall photos, I'm huddled next to a fire waiting out a snow storm. I often mention having a favorite season, but the truth is I love them all. Winter or fall. Especially when I have nowhere to go.
