Last Days

With Labor Day come and gone and almost all schools back in session, it is safe to say summer is winding to an end. I will miss all the lovely times spent driving with the windows down and relaxing at the beach, but truthfully I could not be more excited for fall. Please tell me I am not the only person with this mindset! 

I spent this particular patriotic holiday exploring Old Town Orange, a local favorite area for historic buildings and cute stores. It is also a perfect backdrop for the photoshoot I am putting together this weekend...but more about that later!
We are experiencing an end of summer heat wave so I couldn't face anything more substantial than a lace top and cut offs. 





Topshop top, Vintage Levi's, Cathy Jean Boots, H&M Sunglasses


This is my very first post on my new Macbook Pro! I love it, although I barely understand how to work it as I was previously a Windows PC girl.
I want to know your favorite programs and apps to use, especially those related to blogging!
Tips, ticks, anything, I need all the advice I can get.

I like this look the color of the top and the boots are great together. and i like you went minimal with accessories.

I just downloaded the bloglovin app on my phone and i love it. and for my computer i have a stick notes app that is great when i have a idea in my head

Great casual outfit, the red lips are the perfect finishing touch :) xoxo

The PvdH Journal said...

I love how simple your look is, but at the same time how glam (oxymoron coming on here). The simpleness of the lace is highlighted with the beautiful shade of red lipstick. (Man I have been writing too many fashion show reviews hehe).


ps. I have a new MacBook Pro as well ;)

Jerrica said...

Love driving with the windows down. Congrats on crossing over to the MAC dark side. I too have just gotten my MAC and am looking for some photo software programs online!!! You'll love using it youtube cool finger tricks that can help you move windows around!
