A Summer Abroad

Well, hello!

Fancy meeting you here. No, really, you still come around this place? I feel like it is the internet equivalent of an old, dusty corner of an attic where no one goes and has not seen the light of day for more than 20 years. Or maybe that is just me being dramatic

Either way, I have spent my summer far and away, but now am settled back into more or less of a routine. For the chunk of my time spent away, I was in Las Vegas visiting my sister, Nikki (and my adorable new baby niece Charlotte). While is Las Vegas we also went to Arizona, near Phoenix, to visit my other sister, Jaime. And we also took a trip down to San Diego.

My sister's and I. Jaime on the left, Nikki on the right. Charlotte being cute.

 World's Tallest Thermometer in Baker California!

Hiking in Mt. Charleston (yes, this picture may have been the best one lol)

Sunset on the beach in San Diego :)

Me at a nightclub in Las Vegas (it's XS at Wynn...literally the # 1 nightclub in the world!)

I had tons of fun with my sisters! Going to the nightclub was actually really fun. I am usually the sit at home and read a book, or curl up with Netflix and a cup of tea type, but going out was nice for a change! I lot of people started talking to me, and I met some pretty interesting characters to say the least.

You will note a lack of vintage wardrobe in the post. That is because, despite all the lovely travel tips I have gotten from other lovely blogger ladies (including: Traveling Vintage by JaneyVacation Wardrobe by Frances, and lots of other lovely posts I to lazy to...track down) I just didn't feel up to it this time. Next time I have a trip I might try it (at least with some things) but when I am on vacation mode, I don't feel like doing a whole lot of laundering. 

I did manage to make a vintage top right before I left though :)

It's a vintage swimsuit top that seemed like a perfect summer top! I used a vintage pillow case, some lace, and red buttons. 

I also went to somewhere else this summer....NORWAY!!!!!!!!!!!

More on that in another post though! I will try to do some more vintage outfit/inspiration posts in the meantime. To lure people back in to reading this for what it was originally intended, then bam! Make them read about my fabulous trip to Norway Muaahahahahahah! It's foolproof I tell you. Only now I am a fool because I just told you. Blast! My plot has been foiled. Oh well. I trust at least someone will still be around.

Ta-Ta for now!

  1. How massively exciting that you got a chance to travel extensively this summer. Norway has always struck me as a beautiful, fascinating country. I can't wait to hear more about your exciting travels there!
