The Permanent Tourist

We might be a city of the dead
Or cave men
Instead of simple town folk.
We have nothing to show
That cannot be seen better somewhere else,
Yet for this woman the wonder does not cease.
      F.R. Scott, Tourist Time

 
 
 
I'm excited to share with you all that I will be leaving the capital for the
East Coast! I'll be heading back to the city to pack and get everything
together and then the bf and I are eastbound. As I've mentioned before, I've
been coming here for quite some time now, and I've always loved it. I'm
absolutely delighted to be trading the city's busy, noisy streets for a more
laid-back lifestyle. Bring on the hikes!
 
 
I've never really been one for prints but sometimes I find my obsession with
solids can be a tad boring. This one seemed so fun and happy though, so it
was instantaneous desire. It was longer than I liked so again, snip snip and sew
 on. Lately I've been addicted to matching my nail polish to my outfits, and
it's nice to pull colours from the print. It's starting to feel like a part-time job
painting my nails every day to go with the clothes, but then again, I'm on vacay right?

  2. Over the past year I've learned how important it is to really love where you live so I think it's great that you are moving somewhere that you love being. Good luck with the move :)

  8. I love this dress. The color and fit are perfect for you and I like the addition of the lacy top underneath. Makes it classy and sweet. This setting is so beautiful too. I am so envious!
