It is not often that I find myself posting two days in a row, but there are always the exceptions, and today is one. I must express to you all how blissful it is to have the fresh air wafting through our house from the open windows now-a-days; it seemed for a while that I would never see the warm summer days again! Thus, every day that I possibly can, I take an hour or two to just go outside and enjoy the wilds of nature, or leave a door open to hear the musical chorus of birdsong.
The main attraction for today’s post is our brand new treads, namely, Saltwater sandals. Brigi thought of the idea first, and then one day when we discovered a bargain sale on ModCloth, I “jumped in the boat” and bought a pair with B. We couldn’t have been more pleased with them, I with my navies, and Brigid with her lipstick reds. The comforts of these sandals goes above and beyond any sandal I have ever worn, with not one blister to prove it! And just as the name implies, they love water, are very forgiving on just about any surface you walk on, and grip just as well as a pair of hiking shoes. Charlotte finished off the trio with a turquoise, shiny patent leather pair, after she drooled over them and saved up her money. We are a threesome indeed!
What are we wearing?
On Jessica: Dress: Eshakti // Collar: vintage, gift // Bow: Poshmi // Shoes: Saltwater sandals
I have on my newest gingham purchase from Eshakti (which I mistakingly ordered in a size too large, oops!), topped off by a vintage collar a friend gave us not too long ago. In my hair you see one of those scrumptious bows from our wonderful advertiser, Poshmi, and on my face a smile of satisfaction. Satisfaction because even though the neckline of the Eshakti dress is too low for comfort, I saved it by using the pretty white collar. I cannot say enough good about collars, scarves and camis; they are the most useful accessories I can name!
On Brigid: T-shirt: made by her // Skirt: made by her // Hat: thrifted // Earings: thrifted // Shoes: Saltwater sandals
B has put together an ensemble of two of her newest creations: the crisp, vintage pink, half circle skirt, finished with a soft, lightweight T-shirt. Ah! Did I just type that? Yep! She is stepping out now-a-days with this very relaxed fashion item, and enjoying every ounce of it, or, them I should say–she has more than one now. Her face is framed by two of my favorite accessories: her cherry red, retro earrings; pinnacled by her pretty vintage hat.
On Charlotte: Dress: Sense and Sensibility Patterns // Hat: borrowed // Shoes: Saltwater sandals
Lottie is decked out in one of her fabulous dresses she created from the Sense and Sensibility pattern–our new favorite if you haven’t already heard! She has given her summery look an air of simplicity with just the one accessory–besides the ones on her feet–a floppy hat. She appears to like it in bonnet form, but assures me that she was just having a little girl moment. Ha ha!
I’ve taken to making faces when Charlotte isn’t looking during a pose, thus getting away with a lot of mischief, to her great annoyance. ;P
Perhaps you, like me, have noticed lately our extravagant use of the word “favorite”. I am sorry my friends, we just have a lot of favorite things, and what other word, may I ask, can be used to properly describe our likings? To have many favorite things is not a bad attribute, especially in regards to your wardrobe, and none of us want to wear things that bury the beauty God has given us (and I am referring to all young women here). So, to have a closet full of favorite things to wear is, I think, a very good thing (so long as they are modest in all standards). Our clothes reflect who we are as individuals (and sometimes trios), thus let us use our creativity to dress well, and let everything we own be a favorite.
