Blue and white together always give off the feeling of being very nautical to me, so when I was at the lake recently I thought it would be appropriate to sport something a little suiting to the scenery.
I purchased this dress before I left Arizona at Tj Maxx. Usually, I never find anything that I really like at Tj Maxx, but when I spotted this dress I just knew it was perfect. I love the capped sleeves, the polka dots, and the cinched waist. I think it's a perfect summer dress, but could also transition well into the fall. Those are the kind of garments I am always looking out for. I love anything that can be multi-seasonal (ya know, because we really only have two seasons in Arizona).
Recently I was going through my childhood jewelry and spotted this pretty turquoise ring. I was given the ring as a birthday present when I was about twelve or thirteen. It really has been years since I wore it, but I thought it would be fun to take it out on a spin. I think it's a nice reminder that I've always been ring obsessed. To me, rings truly are the perfect accessories!
So when we were in Delta I went to the lake almost day. Ever day that I went I hoped that I would be able to get some time in alone on this bridge. Well, that ended up being a much harder challenge that I thought.
The first day I went there, there was a group of kids jumping off of it and swimming in the lake. I figured it wouldn't be best to interrupt their swimming and fun, so I picked another spot and hoped the next day it would be open. Well, the second day there was two little boys and their dad fishing off of the dock, and same for the third day. On the fourth day know one was there, except for a girl in her twenties that decided to watch me take photos. The staring was a bit awkward, but I was so happy to finally get my alone time on the talk I really didn't even mind.
Today Scott and I are enjoying our time together. Some kind of adventure will be involved I'm sure. And lots of coffee and yummy food, of course. Be sure and check out my twitter page to see what we are up to today!
