Country Roots

Top: c/o Oasap   Shorts: Aeropostale   Necklace: c/o Estarer   Sandals: Philippines   Hat: JcPenney


Isn't this location just so lovely? When Kirsten and I hung out last, we headed out to the little country house that she's house sitting for some people, and it completely won my heart over. The entire place is just so charming! I ended up taking a lot of photos all around the house as well, so I may just make a "Frances Photography" post dedicated to this place.

Its been a while since I wore this cute blouse out, but when I went home and discovered it hiding in my closet, I had to break it out again. Isn't it the perfect summery top? Especially if its paired with a floppy hat.

When I spotted these striped, nautical little shorts on the clearance rack at Aeropostale, you better believe I snatched them up quick. They've become my staple pair of summer shorts lately! Next up on my list: some bold black and white striped pants for fall.

You know, it's pretty silly how much I'm looking forward to the fall semester starting up. Never have I ever been so excited for school to begin! All I can think about are the new things I'll be learning (Drawing class! Darkroom photography! Design!), the people I might meet, the opportunities I'll be getting through Senate, and oh yeah, fall fashion.

Guys, why is it that this happens every year? Towards the end of July, I start eyeing tights, scarves, boots, and all the lovely layers in my closet and develop an itch for some cool, fall weather to kick in.

I guess its just a reminder that it's important to appreciate today and remember that tomorrow isn't here yet.

You are going to have a wonderful semester at school. Enjoy and learn in all your classes.

The location is so lovely! It is like a Taylor Swift's location. You look so pretty as country girl <3 and my favorite piece of your outfit was your shorts.

I LOVE this!! Such a beautiful, quaint country location and your outfit is too cute. You look beautiful. Love the top with the hat, and especially the necklace!

I've been thinking of fall too. Which is stupid, because fall doesn't get here until November, if it gets here at all! Blogging has totally changed how I think of the seasons. Time goes by much faster now. It does naturally, as you get older. But this natural process is exacerbated by the future orientation of fashion blogging!

Hee hee, I am definitely looking foward to fall... so I feel the itch just as much as you do! The cooler weather will be perfect for bike rides and tights (and tall socks!! !! !!) and scarves and teeaaAA outside and that dusky smell of decaying leaves. Autumn is definitely my favorite season! *___*

So, um, these photos are BEAUTIFUL LINDA!! I love that hat on you and that blouse reminds me of pirates, hehehe, I just love those poofy sleeves! You are so gosh darn pretty. I can't stop staring at that first picture of you.

You are so cute, and if you were a pokemon, I'd choose you. ;D!! hehehehe <3

hi Linda, sweet - sweet!

I'm doing a bit better. Thanks for understanding about me being a bit off. I still don't know when I will do a post with me being vertical but we shall see. Those past two posts in the white shorts were both taken prior to the dang injury.

So doh! on me, huh?

I love how you did this shoot at that home and the surroundings. You are such an artist, in everything you do.

Gorgeous location, truly, I love your casual outfit Linda! =)

What a fun and cute look. That top is so elegant and casual all at once. And the shorts are so perfect on you. Especially enjoy those last 2 shots. And it is never too early to break out the tights :) Glad you are excited about the new semester. You will be amazed what a difference pursuing something you are passionate about, surrounded by those who share your dreams, will make. Very excited for you :)

wow linda, these pictures are AMAZING. you are just getting better and better with that camera girl! the lighting is so pretty and I love all of the different angles. (Not to mention you can really rock a hat!) This outfit is really petty and I like how you "country-ed it up" it looks very romantic and soft with the blouse and the hat. (And again, ooooooh, pretty pictures!)

Lindaaaaaa! I can't believe I missed this super cute post while I was out at cross country camp. I agree with you on everything starting up soon--it's sort of intimidating but awesome at the same time. Good luck to you, girl!

I am totally in love with that hat and that flowy top. The striped shorts add that nautical vibe and that necklace gives it the explorer, timeless feel. What a perfect ensemble and gorgeous photos!
