Raspberry Lemonade

Gahh...sorry for not posting for a week! I've been trying to go to the gym more lately, and I think I'm a little sleep-deprived this week because I've just felt so exhausted all week! Anywho... Wednesday Chris and I went to this local farm. I thought they had pick-our-own, but I was sadly mistaken. It was just a little farm market with freshly grown vegetables and fruits. The area was nice, though with lots of pretty scenery so I decided it was fitting for a photoshoot.





[Dress: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: Payless]
I wish I could've picked some fruit because I've had a huge urge to. In the winter, I couldn't wait until the orchards were open for picking. I told myself that I'd pick everything I could! Unfortunately, it hasn't ended up that way. I haven't picked anything yet! The thing I want to pick most is raspberries. A. Because they're one of my favorite fruits and B. Because I've never picked them before. Coincidentally, the color of this dress is kind of a raspberry. I thought it'd be fun to pair it with my yellow shoes that I can't get enough of. The pairing reminded me of raspberry lemonade, which I loooove.





I got this dress at Urban in the winter because it was on clearance. I kind of forgot about it until now. The open back is so nice to have in the heat. I like it too because you can't see my bra. I find that usually, the open backs aren't strategically placed so that they cover your bra, but this one was so it was a winner! I must say, though, I don't usually wear pink. I'm not sure why. I have nothing against pink, but throughout the day I sometimes found myself wishing this dress was a royal blue or red. Maybe it's just my primary color kick taking over. Although when it comes to girly colors, I prefer purple.





I was supposed to go to the sunflower farm today, but the forecast says thunderstorms, so I'll have to go another day. :( Oh well....I'm sure I'll find something else interesting to do! Maybe find a vintage photobooth? :)

  2. Sorry you couldn't pick your own fruit, it sounds like a fun day all the same though! You look fantastic in this pink dress, and I love how you paired it with the yellow shoes (Raspberry lemonade sounds like a great color combo to me!). Oh and congrats for going more to the gym! I wish I had that type of motivation :)

  3. That dress looks lovely on you. The color is flattering and you are right about the cutout being strategically placed. That picking grounds looks beautiful. I've never gone picking and you have a place to do it RIGHT there! Go and pick raspberries so I can live vicariously through you.

    Your blog is quirky - I love quirky. Figure I should follow, eh? Looking forward to more :)

    1. Thank you so much! I actually went to pick raspberries yesterday, but ended up having to pick blueberries instead because the raspberries were all gone. :( But they should be back at the end of the month. I haven't given up hope yet!
