we could ring out like mission bells

i meant to post these photos before i left for california, but i just ran out of time!
so here they are, now that i'm back home.

i wore this comfy dress on the 4 hour flight out to oakland, ca.
it was super easy to travel in!
soft + stretchy = perrrrfect airplane dress.

we found this lovely little garden the evening before i left.
it's by a park near our place.
isn't it just the cutest?









[and of course you have to take a little sweater along!]

dress: free people (borrowed from my sister), tights: target, boots: marshalls, scarf: thrifted, bag: aldo, sweater: deliahs

[timothy. my little lion man. really, he's yawning ;)]


[what i packed. i usually overpack. so i decided to set out my outfits this time!]


[my mom, me, and my twin at bonnie raitt. i've got more photos from california on the way!]


[oh, and we went to a cowboys & indian (housewarming) party before i left. thought i'd show you our costumes!]


now i'm back in indiana.
my sister and i get to spend the afternoon together today!
we've been watching master chef on netflix. kind of addicting ;)

oh, and my sister Kylie showed me this video the other day.
i love the song, and the video is gorgeous!
i mean, they're both just so cute to watch!
give it a look/listen:
"mission bells" by armistice.


have a beautiful thursday, friends!

love you(s).

  4. I love all the outfits you packed. I'm getting ready for a trip to San Diego in a few days. I think setting out outfits ahead of time would make packing so much easier! A cowboys and Indians party sounds so fun!

  26. I love that garden! Especially the wooden door, so whimsical! And your dress does look perfect for flying! I always wear dresses on the plane, because they are comfy but dont look like sweat pants...

  27. you always find the most darling spots for your shoots! the garden is lovely, all those trailing trellis's and you looking as chic as can be in your traveling outfit. the yawn shot is hysterical, almost looks like he's on the verge of a good yodel ; )

    wait up though, that's your mom???? was she like 10 when she had you girls? the genes in your family are surely blessed! loved the housewarming ensembles, you two are a blast of righteous air. xoox ♥
