 the details
collar clips - ebay
ring - c/o Oasap
shoes - Neo c/o Blowfish
bag - c/o asian icandy

First, let me start by telling you I most definitely did iron this skirt before leaving the house. I had it so nice and wrinkle free but within no time (literally a ten minute car ride) it looked like I had just picked it up off the bedroom floor and put it on, well maybe it's not that bad but it's still driving me crazy. Are there any products out there to stop wrinkles after you iron something? Because that is exactly what this skirt needs. Otherwise it's perfect, I love the fit and the fact it will match anything. I'd hate for it to get buried in my closet because I can't keep it wrinkle free.

A little while back asian icandy sent me over this adorable bag which I knew needed to be turned into a camera bag. I, without measuring (not a great idea!), bought a camera bag insert for it. (I got this one if you're curious, it's pretty darn nice!) When I finally got the insert I was so bummed because of how big it looked. But to my surprise it actually fits perfect, like the two were made for each other. I have no plans of ever taking it out. Welcome to my camera bag collection, pretty little green bag. Now every cute bag I see immediately makes me wonder if I could fit an insert into it to make it a camera bag.

We've been having the nicest weather lately. The last few days have been my perfect vision of fall. It's cool and crisp but the sun is out. (I wrote this up mid last week and I'm so sad to say that amazing weather is now gone. It's been nothing but rain for days and it's supposed to continue all week. Guh! Can't wait for sunshine again!)  We went to the park the day these were taken, after we were done taking pictures we wandered down to the beach and spent some time looking for beach glass. We didn't find much but it was so nice to explore a beach we don't normally look for glass at. I feel so lucky to live so close to the beach!
Hope you're all having a fabulous Monday! I'm going to try to make the best of this rainy day with some baking and cleaning. I can't wait to fill up the house with the smell of pumpkin.

  4. Gorgeous pictures. I LOVE that skirt... I am a super starch fan... it doesn't keep everything wrinkle free forever but it helps.

    Love Elle xo

    1. I was thinking about starching it but wasn't sure if it would help. I've never had anything starched but perhaps I'll have to give it a shot. Thanks! :)

  10. YES YES I know something to help you...it's called downy wrinkle release spray. I even used it in my hair when it was all sticking up from static the other day. I smelled downy fresh! I love your post. You are lucky to live near the beach. JEALOUS!!

  11. Camera bag inserts?!?! What an amazing idea! can't believe i haven't heard of them before, i have been desperate for a camerca bag recently, but they're either over priced or plain ugly. This is the answer to my problem, thank you

  12. That piece of wood you're balancing on looks brilliant! I never noticed the castle when I looked at this post on my phone :D

    Camera inserts are just the best :) and your collar and sweater clips are awesome :)

  13. Probably I am blind but I can't really see any wrinkles on your skirt?!
    I hope that does not sound too weird but I had to think of you this weekend while hunting for mushrooms - we've found loaaads of fly agarics :D

  14. I hate ironing things! I will literally let a wrinkly dress sit in my closet for a whole year before I decide to actually iron it. haha

  15. My seamstress friend mentioned to me once that mixing vinegar with water and spraying it on fabric before ironing fixes not only wrinkles but also keeps creases (that you want) forever. Warning: it smells like hot pickles during ironing.

    Also, amazingly cute outfit as always!

  16. I love that ring so much. I never iron my clothing. I always end up with wrinkles. I wear scrubs to work and those things are just awful. They wrinkle so easily that I had to buy a steamer and have them steam out the wrinkles while I get ready for work. It seems like such a wasted effort because then they wrinkle throughout the day but I can't be wrinkly at work. So silly.

  17. I've always wanted to go looking for sea glass. I've always wanted to live near a beach too, but the waves scare me if it's stormy, haha.

    Very cute outfit, I like how your sleeves show like that! Seems like it's even part of the outfit :)

  19. I'm almost certain they sell sprays to get wrinkles out of clothes. I did a quick google search and Downy makes one! Anywho, I love the outfit. That is such a lovely bag.

  25. Your hair looks amazing in that first photo, so pretty! I absolutely hate ironing, I'm terrible for buying things and then never wearing them after I wash them, purely because they need ironed. So lazy! Love that last photo, the light is beautiful xo

  30. This is one of your most adorable outfits ever! I love how you look like you're ready for a woodland expedition. :) The skirt colour is so pretty, it's a shame it wouldn't stop wrinkling. The purse/bag also looks like a perfect camera bag, I'm glad the insert fit! :)
