I adore these clutches by Poketo! It doesn't hurt that they're made from upcycled leather!

This post was a lot of fun. I used different items of clothing from Cactus Flower, the boutique & vintage store where I work to mimic these outfits by Alexa Chung. She's definitely one of my favorite fashion icons. I love the way she puts things together.

How do you wear your scarves? This post was completely inspired by this adorable video by Bri of Design Love Fest, where it is literally raining scarves. She is too cute!

I know, I know. I'm adding these incredibly late! My good friend Mel and I took a lot (and I mean a lot) of photos during the weekend, and it took us a bit to get through them all. She took 1400 photos and narrowed them down to 700! Impressive, right? Anyway, Sasquatch was wonderful. The weather was beautiful for the majority of the weekend and we ended up staying at an inn that was less than a five minute walk away. It was in a vineyard and it was absolutely breathtaking. I miss the view!

This trip was my first visit ever to Washington. I spent a day in Seattle and then road tripped to The Gorge with Kelcey, Mel, Matt, and Spencer. I'm still soaking it all in! I can't wait to visit again! If you feel like closing your eyes and pretending to be at Sasquatch, check out these recordings from the festival on Mel's soundcloud, here.

Eyelet you have my heart!

Don't mind the children swinging/falling from the tree behind me, haha! If you're loving eyelet as much as I am, hop on over to the Cactus Flower blog to see another cute eyelet dress by Ariella, one which I ended up purchasing... Whoops! I couldn't help it!

Les jolies femmes de Godard

I'm a huge Jean-Luc Godard fan and it doesn't hurt that he cast such adorable ladies! If you have Netflix, head on over and watch Une Femme Est Une Femme with Anna Karina. It's on instant!

Oh, to walk across the ocean...

If only we could really walk across the ocean on our bare feet to visit other places around the world! It's up in the 80s and 90s in Indiana right now and incredibly muggy! I need the beach and a good book, stat! I just purchased a plane ticket to Los Angeles over the 4th of July and I couldn't be more excited. I haven't been out there since February, which is far too long.

Speaking of traveling, there is an AMAZING giveaway on the blog Oh Happy Day. You could win a trip for two to Paris! Dream come true? I think so. What a perfect occasion to practice my French! Here's the giveaway: Enter here!

Away we go!

If only I could pack my bags and head out to one of these lovely destinations. I love the wall-sized windows and simple design of these two places. I'd like to go away now, please!

Hello friends! I made the mistake of falling in love with too many dresses by ASOS last night. It took me forever to narrow it down to two dresses! Help me decide which one to purchase! Which one do you all like better? 

Here's dress onetwo. Thanks for your help! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! I'll let you know the decision as soon as I'm about to pick. Decisions are tough, huh? haha!

I just arrived home from a long weekend at The Gorge. I attended Sasquatch and was able to spend a lot of time with some of my favorite people. Music updates and photos from the weekend will be posted later this week! I hope everyone is doing well! Did you all do anything fun over Memorial Day weekend?
