So I've had my driver's license for years now but have yet to drive alone anywhere. (Shame!) Since I am sick of being at the mercy of my mom and brother I decided to start practicing again. I began on Friday when Aaron came over to give me a few pointers. I learned how to avoid the curb and slow down at intersections. He learned that I get easily distracted by pretty houses and have no trouble talking while driving!
I got another chance to test out my skills on Sunday. I drove my brother to the American Memorial where our very first post was. It's actually one of my favorites- I thought we did pretty well for beginners! (As usual, Arianne trumps me at the history so you guys may click back if you want to know all about it) The Memorial is always a great place to take pictures and has free entrance to boot.
Afterwards, my dad, brother and I spent the long weekend in Tagaytay, where we did A LOT of thrifting. I really love how the men in my family can keep up (and sometimes surpass) my shopping stamina. We must have hit up 7 ukay-ukays!
As for the outfit, it is typical lazy vacation attire. The silky slip with the sweetheart cut is a basic full of possibilities. The shorts (skort?) are an exact duplicate of Arianne's pair but a teeny bit too small for her. Hooray for me! To be honest they are a teeny bit too small for me as well but the zipper on the side looks cool half-open, right? Right!
I like the two pieces together so much that I may live in this combination for awhile. Case in point: wore this exact outfit on Saturday when Arianne and I shot for our upcoming shop.
Here is a sneak peek. Obviously, not selling the slip or shorts but the navy military coat and wedges are up for grabs. I added the gold buttons to the military coat myself! (Buttons are my only DIY outlet.) The poor wedges gather dust in my closet only to be pulled out for blog shoots. Someone give these beauties a loving home!
As I mentioned, I am easily distracted by pretty houses. I spotted this little house from our hotel window and thought it was just the nicest thing. The colors are fun, there is a corner balcony and an attic window! To me this place just says 'welcome home'! Bright, cheerful and quaint. House of Dreams, as Anne would say.
Still not over my Anne kick, obviously...
