vintage ootd: summer solstice style

Yesterday marked the official beginning of summer.  Time for pin-up pool parties, drinks on the patio, and picnics in the park.  

I spent the longest day of the year with my wonderful friends, Katie and Jamie, hanging out at a local brewery, playing corn hole, drinking beer, and chowing down on chicken and waffles, followed by grilling on our back deck and catching fireflies.  It was a good day.

As for my outfit, I opted for a very boho look.  Upon first glance, it may not scream traditional summer-wear (notice lack of short sleeves or open-toed shoes), but I think it was perfect for such a fun-packed day.

The chambray crop top shows just a little bit of skin, and the 3/4 sleeves kept my shoulders protected from the sun all day.  I went with a fun, Indian print wrap skirt for a loose, breezy feel.  And my vintage brown leather booties and Liz Claiborne bucket purse were the perfect additions to bring together the earthy mood I was going for.

In other news, I'm excited to say that our Etsy shop is coming along quite nicely.  Here's just a taste of some of the lovely summer goods we have in store.
