Lace Obsession

Top: (gift) Macys   Shorts: c/o Stitched + Adorned   Sandals: Philippines   Bag: Rue 21   Sunglasses: vintage


I think I have a thing for lace...especially if it's in the form of shorts! So this bold blue pair from Stitched + Adorned have me over the moon. These Violet Rain Shorts have got a silky inner lining, so they're super comfortable too. They'll probably end up doubling as sleeping shorts now haha!



Yesterday was a really good day spent catching up with my girl Saffron. It's been too long since we've spent time together, so we had quite a bit to talk about. After grabbing some frozen yogurt at our favorite shop, we walked the canyon rim that's nearby - completely barefoot! Haha, she had worn some fancier, slightly heeled shoes and shucked them off so she could walk more comfortably. Just so she wouldn't be the only one getting weird looks, I decided to join her. It was great. My feet hurt a little, but they're much tougher than before!



After taking some goofy pictures in the dusky lighting, we were heading back to my car to leave when we ran into a couple of base jumpers! They were really cool guys, one from Australia and the other from Puerto Rico. We commented on their equipment, and they invited us to climb up to the bridge and watch them. I honestly don't know how they do this as a hobby - it would be terrifying! Just watching them I felt my stomach plunge a bit when they leaped off the bridge into nothingness. Thankfully, they've done this multiple times, so they know what they're doing. As I joked with Raff (the Puerto Rican), if you're crazy enough to do something as risky as base jumping, you might as well be as safe as you can about it!



As for me, I plan on keeping my feet as close to the ground as possible - unless I'm trying to get a jumping picture. ;)


What do you think of this collage? Haha, I had fun trying to get a hair flip captured on camera.

I love tiger pictures! the year of the tiger is my birth year and I have a tiger tattoo as well. so your tee is really cool! and so are the blue lace shorts. btw, what a good idea to wear those as sleeping shorts. I should do the same with my lace shorts since summer is already over here in Estonia and our weather officially sucks!

I love your bag! I'm pretty much head over heels for anything tribal inspired. Or tie-dye (as is evident with my ensemble today). Or lace...those shorts are too cute.
Glad your feet toughed it out for the walk :)

Those lace shorts are so gorgeous, I love the color and the lace and how they are comfy! It looks nice with the neutral-er color grey top. But the base jumping sounds very very very scary. I don't think I would ever be able to do it, my stomach would plunge just from watching too! And hehe the hair flip collage looks very cool :)

I love these indigo shorts! That colour is beautiful, I always love finding pieces in unique colours.
