YAY for 3 day weekends! I was really excited for this long weekend so I could spend some time lounging around at home + exploring around town with Collin. We spent the 4th of July stopping by a friend's new home, eating sushi and watching Hulu and it was just a wonderful mini-staycation. Also, at one point, I ended up at Goodwill and found an armful of vintage lawn flamingos and some Pyrex (which I of course, I bought and put in my cabinet here) so that was pretty awesome.
I think most Pinup Girl Clothing lovers who were following the release of the Mary Blair collection will agree that the wait for the Mary Blair Umbrellas Print seemed like an eternity which made it's recent release even MORE exciting! I opened the skirt felt like it was well worth the wait, I love the color, and the print is even better than expected. I'd initially added a little chin ribbon to this hat to match the skirt, but realized how annoying that was about 10 minutes into wearing it, and shed the cute little ribbon. haha. RIP hat ribbon.
I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July weekend! My office was closed on Friday so I've had an awesome extended break from work. Unfortunately, Georgia decided it should do it's best impersonation of a rainforest so it rained on and off all weekend. Which I know is great for the environment, but my poor frizzy hair is sad. Luckily, I decided to do some 60's side bangs, because my normal bangs would have been pretty awful with all this rain. Also, it gave me an excuse to re-watch all of Bob's Burgers, which is one of my all time favorite shows. June and I both always laugh, because we would definitely be Linda if we were a character from Bob's Burgers.
I've said it before, but I really used to hate shorts UNTIL I tried Pinup Girl Clothing's shorts. I have to size-up, because my waist-hip ratio, but I still absolutely love the way the shorts look. These are my latest pair of shorts from PUG, and a big thanks goes to my lovely friend Ashley for picking them up for me. The pink + green combo is one of my favorites for the summer, and I can already tell that these shorts will get a lot of wear from me. I was kinda weary of the print at first, but I'm super happy I took the plunge, and now I think I need them in blue too.
