i must say, i’ve really been enjoying the leisurely pace of the long weekend we’ve been having. i’ve been getting lots of rest and relaxation around the house with my boyfriend and my new kitty. we’ve been doing silly, simple things like re-watching old episodes of lost while enjoying champagne mixed with lime-ade and big bowls of ice cream. it really has been like a mini-vacation, perfect for recharging my batteries before jumping into the very busy month of june (more on that soon)! so this morning we went to the mountain view cemetery by our house for a leisurely stroll and a photo shoot. this time, we opted to wander around a small lake filled with ducks and turtles, but we couldn’t get too close because there was a chain link fence around the whole thing. in such a pretty setting, we got a bit snap happy and took about a million pictures!

so this is my memorial day outfit. i’ve been waiting almost a week for the opportunity to wear this brand new marc jacobs dress in a faded paisley print. the best part about it is that it has a really cool shape, but it’s made of a stretchy jersey knit, so it’s super comfortable. i jumped at the excuse to wear these fancy heels, but i’ve already kicked them off in exchange for a simple pair of flat sandals so i can lounge around for the duration of my weekend…
