June in Idaho

Sawtooth Mountains, Idaho

Sorry for the radio silence around here, folks. At work, I've been out in "the field" (as we geologists like to call it) almost every day, working some long hours. All that there is time for in my life these days is sleeping, eating, and taking Petey on walks (mostly because he gives me that face if I don't). Next week promises to be more reasonable, work-wise, so hopefully I'll be back to my irregularly scheduled posting!

For now, I'll leave with two photos I took in Idaho back in June. I spent an awesome ten days in both Idaho and Wyoming, visiting with friends and enjoying some outrageous scenery. If you scrutinize the lower right-hand corner of the photo below, you'll discover the real reason that we all went to Idaho. Rafting!

Dress: Vintage Swirl Wrap Dress (etsy)
Shoes: Kork-Ease
Bracelet: Gift

I am SO EXCITED about my new-to-me Swirl dress. Seriously, I've been looking for one for a long time and when this one popped up on Etsy, I knew that it had to be mine. The pattern is so amazing! I love the colors! It looks perfect with my new Kork-Ease's! I could go on and on, but instead I think I will just wear it until it falls to pieces. Have ya'll found anything exciting recently? Isn't it just the best when you find something you have had on your wish list for what seems like forever?

Cape: Free People
Skirt: Woman Within
Tank: Target
Shoes: Clark's
Belt: Thrifted
Bracelets: Market in Mexico, gift, Made in Jackson Hole

This morning felt like the first true day of fall, right on time for Labor Day here in the U.S. Although its been getting pretty cool at night for a while now, today it was still 56 degrees F at noon, windy, and cloudy. Exciting stuff! I can't wait for boots and cozy sweaters and ski season. So, it seemed like the appropriate time to post photos of my new cape. I wore this a couple of weeks ago to dinner and let me tell you, it was more than a little warm for the weather. However, I think it will make another, more seasonally appropriate appearance this afternoon. This cape is a totally new type of sweater for me and I have absolutely no idea how to wear it. I'll guess I have to try it with everything and see what works!

I hope that those of you in the U.S. have a great holiday tomorrow and don't have to work. Any exciting plans? We're hoping to have a lawn games tournament, complete with croquet, bocce ball, and badminton!
