Iowa Stubborn

Hey hey everyone!

Hope that you are having a wonderful and relaxing Memorial Day. My weekend was spent traveling to Illinois and then I was off to Iowa for a weekend conference that was held at a camp. It rained the whole time, but it certainly was an amazing time. I got to see a bunch of old friends and meet a bunch of fantastic people. 

Now, I'm in Illinois until the next week for internship training, so I will be showing little tidbits of my travels soon enough. It certainly is wonderful to get away from home for a little awhile and be with wonderful people that I don't get to see that often. 

 These pictures were taken by my mother before I left  and this was one of her first encounters with a DSLR, so I think that she did pretty well. This is what I wore to move some of my things over to my house for the summer. This outfit was perfect to keep things comfy and cool while moving items back and forth. 

Well, I best keep this short, I'm quite tired from the drive back from Iowa and soon I will start making absolutely no sense whatsoever. 

Shirt: Vintage:Thrifted 
Shorts: Gift from my sister: Thrifted 
Sweater: College bookstore 
Shoes: Thrifted 
Bandanna: Stolen from a guy friend.  

Have a great night all! 



P.S. The post title comes from me being a musical nerd.

Ugh, I know driving takes it out of a person doesn't it? I'm always so out of it after a long car ride, haha. You certainly looked adorable for moving though! those shorts with a tucked in blouse are super adorable, for sure :)

Aw, that sucks that you're in Illinois right when I'm back in California! What part of Illinois are you in?

This combination is so darling! I love the red top, it's perfect for summer.

I love your top. Red is a great color on you and I totally understand what you mean, that Iowa drive is HORRIBLE. No matter where you're coming from, that state is the longest. Are you visiting or is that where you live?

Your blog is adorable and I love your red top with the shorts in the sunset. I have to admit your mom is good too even with her first time with a DSLR. It's always fun trying to have parents help with fashion blogs. hehe. Good luck with your internship too
