Sometimes I really hate living in such a small town especially when I see all of the events, parties and get-togethers that occur in big cities. I can only imagine how great it would be to attend an event with like-minded and dressed ladies. Until then I'll try my hardest to appreciate my quaint-little town. I always walk downtown in hopes that I'll find something new that I haven't seen before. This day I didn't find any new discovery, but I did get stopped quite a few times. Full skirts are not the norm for Georgia/South Carolina.
Now that it's 100 degrees and the humidity is consistently 60%+ I don't feel weird wearing crop style tops. For a while there, I was wearing crop tops, and it wasn't quite hot enough so I felt more out of place than usual. I've gone through my second bottle of sunscreen so far this year, because a sunburn is bad...but a halter-top sunburn is awful. This 1950s inspired suntop is pretty much the epitome of my Summer style. It's comfy, light and also freakin' adorable. AtomicJax custom makes these tops from a vintage pattern, which means it's authentic and pairs well with my vintage skirts.
I spent the weekend revisting the part of Nashville I lived in before Collin + I purchased our home. I love it over there and find myself wandering back that way quite frequently in my downtime. I channeled my inner June Carter Cash, said "hi" to Elvis and wandered into a shop called Cool Stuff Weird Things (y'all have no idea how appropriate that name is). Then I drove over to Marathon Music Works for a cup of coffee from the Garage and stopped off at one of the few "I Believe in Nashville" murals in town. It was amazing having a day to wander around, exploring, doing nothing. Even if it was 95 degrees. ; )
I love this 1950s Suntop but as y'all can probably tell, there's a reason I don't usually wear crop tops. haha. Katie's looks adorable on her but I found mine to be a bit long and not actually a "cropped" top... I blame my short torso. It was also loose which made it look a bit boxy. I was excited to break out this novelty print skirt that hasn't left my closet in a while, it has little tiny pig with barbed wire on it and it had the original matching belt! The vintage gods were shining down on me the day I found this one.
