monday quote

This week's Free People monday quote is definitely one of my favorites, so I wanted to share it.  It seems to perfectly describe my sister and I, and what our blog is meant to be about.  
How life is just too short to not take risks.

"What we have here is a dreamer.
Someone completely out of touch with reality.
When she jumped, she probably thought she could fly."
-the virgin suicides

spotty fashion

this weekend's weather was beyond beautiful, so I made sure to soak up every ray of sun possible. on sunday my family and I pulled out the patio chairs from storage, grilled out, and enjoyed some delicious food and drinks together.  it was some much needed relaxation and vitamin d.  while getting dressed I found I gravitated towards the silks and chiffons because i wanted to be in something that flows that i could feel the breeze in and that was comfortable enough for lounging around in.  but most importantly, i wanted an outfit that allowed me to eat as much food as i wanted! polka dots are such a simple, yet classic print.  I find that I have so much of it, most of which are hand-me-downs from my grandmother.  my top is actually a vintage nighty from her, which I paired with a black high-waisted maxi skirt and turquoise statement jewelry.
