I go out walking all day long

I think sunflowers are the happiest flowers...doesn't just looking at one want to make you smile? It's all the good things about summer made into one beautiful plant.

This gorgeous summery dress was given to me by my boyfriend's mom (she even had her senior picture taken in it). I love it. I love the long skirt (perfect for twirling in the grass) and the corset-esque top. It's the quintessential summer dress - you don't need anything else because it works all by itself. I usually don't like wearing white, but on a summer day it's hard to refuse the crisp coolness of the color.

I love the look of a wrist full of bracelets (a la Jack Sparrow). Sometimes, to add a little devil-may-care attitude, I like to wrap a necklace around my wrists to go with whatever bracelets I've chosen.

My boyfriend and I went out wanting to have a picnic, but the mosquitoes chased us away again. At least he got a couple pictures snapped before we were completely eaten to death.

Amazing dress - I love the history behind it too. Sometimes it's nice to wear a vintage item when you know it's past.

Sorry to hear about the mosquito's - they can sure ruin a lovely day out!
