Our Dear Ocean Town // What I Wore

Goodbye Brielle
Only whispers can tell
Of the sweet dreams that we knew so well
I'll see you around our dear ocean town

~ Brielle by Sky Sailing

Every time I'm down by the harbor I feel as if I've stepped into Anne of Green Gables or a Sky Sailing song. There's something just so romantic and old fashioned about a quaint harbor complete with pathways, lighthouses and piers. 

Needless to say, I'm loving my move. Living on my own has always been a dream of mine, but I never saw how it could be a possibility. The area I grew up in is an interesting one, and there are general two options for housing: cheap housing in less, than ideal neighborhoods (read: "not the safest of places"); or expensive housing in well-to-do towns. Neither are viable choices for a 20-something woman living on her own. Luckily some friends of mine introduced me to how amazing Wisconsin is! For some reason I used to hate the town I currently live in, but after spending a year hanging out in this area with said friends, I realized how totally cool this place is! I honestly don't even remember why I used to dislike it.

On another subject, I apologize for the (terrible) quality of these photos. I'm completely in love with this outfit (this teeshirt quite accurately describes my life!), but I had so many problems getting pictures! First of all, even though it was a very nice day, the lakefront was freezing and windy. In fact, it was so windy it blew my tripod over and sent my poor little baby crashing to the ground. My heart jumped into my throat as I heard the very distinct sound of breaking glass. God was totally with me and my camera, though, because the only thing that broke was the UV protector on the lens! Literally all these photos were taken after there fall with the same camera and lens! I will never, ever use another lens without a UV protector again!

  1. What a cute ensemble! Floral and a graphic tee- I haven't done that in a while. I actually haven't worn a graphic tee in a while now that I think about it. hehe. Congrats on your move!

    I'd like to invite you to enter my birthday giveaway!! (US addresses only though.) See you on my bloggie soon!


  2. Thank God for your UV protector! My camera has nearly had a few spills but I was always quick enough to catch it. Now I have a firm "no-taking-photos-with-a-tripod-in-the-wind" rule. haha Also shooting in the wind SUCKS!

    Your outfit rocks and it's just so YOU! I love how confident you are becoming with your style and knowing exactly what embodies who you are on the inside.
