July! July!...

Second post of the day! I guess I'm making up for lost time. Since I last was here I pruned apple trees,  painted my nails (influenced by my nail polish post), wrapped presents for my little sister's birthday, and took outfit photos!

Dress: Tulle (
Shoes: Thrifted
Pin: Thrifted

This is an Americana inspired outfit. It's perfect for the Fourth of July isn't it? I feel like I should be making apple pie or going to a picnick. The dress is one of my favorites. It is very early 60's (my favorite fashion era) and has a magnificent peter pan collar (I love them with immense passion). It is cute and checkered and kind of reminds me of Zooey Deschanel. It was also $15 dollars on sale. It is the best dress in the world.

I had a difficult time taking these pictures because originally my sister was going to take them. However, we got into a fight over the nail polish I am wearing (It's hers). She took a couple pictures, but they were terrible except for this one. (Above) Luckily, we have made up and were just watching the Discovery Health Channel together. Awww...

Talking about my sister, the other day my sister and I, along with our friend Leah, recorded some music together. I play the cello, my sister the violin, and Leah the guitar. Leah made a little video of our recording session and I thought you guys might like to hear it. Our video, was featured on another blog, To Eleven (truthfully never read it, but googled my name and it came up). The article is kind of strange though, I don't know if he likes it or doesn't like it, I don't know. Just keep in mind that when we recorded this video, we all were very hungry for lunch and we are amateurs and don't have any delusions of grandeur. And one more thing, I was not serious with my bopping, I was joking.

P.S. Happy Fourth of July
