barefoot on a summer night

Can you believe how fast this summer went? There were so many things I had wanted to do, including completely revamping my wardrobe. But work just sucked the energy out of me, and I didn't get my act together! I still have a week and a half left of work, and then I'm leaving for school on the 6th. Classes start the 7th. Crazy but mad exciting. I can't wait to see everyone and dive into class and be in that environment again!

I did decide that I want to be at home next summer. I missed this place so much, and to not be able to go to campfires with friends, swim when I wanted, or drink afternoon coffee on the screen porch with my family ("Hot Beverage Club")... well, it kind of sucked. I really missed talking to my parents and hanging out with my brother! I see them rarely enough as it is during the year (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spring break are the only times I go home). So I'm going to try to work things out to work part time at a restaurant nearby after I study abroad (fingers crossed!).

Enough of my rambling! I took these photos last week in my favorite grassy field. Wearing bandannas has been my newest trend: they're now my favorite accessory! And these moccs have been my summer staple. My brother and I went moccasin shopping together to treat ourselves, and I couldn't love them more! So comfortable, versatile, and adorable!

  1. Love, love the outfit! The top and the skirt are amazing

  2. Yes, the summer has indeed flown by. I hope you get that summer job so you can be close to your family! Did one of them take these photos or was it autotimer (or clicker)? You look gorgeous as always and I totally forgot about bandanas! I want one now!

  3. Adorable! I love how the bandanna continues on into the ruffles on the shirt, and how you've picked the red throughout the look. Lovely to see you posting again! I would love to get a summer job though I know I can't get any work and spend time with my family.

  4. I love this outfit so much! I tried making a shirt like that about two years ago...failed! Do I'm so envious of yours :)

  5. I thank you for the information and articles you provided
