This last Saturday I spent quality time with my best lady friend, Bruklyn. The first part of the day was spent In Jacksonville looking at all of the cute little shops. After almost suffering from a heat stroke we decided it would be best to cool down and get some gelato. We drove over to another town in Southern Oregon to get a fixing of delicious, frozen goodness!
After getting our gelato fix we drove up town to look for a place to take outfit photos. There is a really pretty white house that is part of the local university that was the perfect spot.
Somehow I managed to pair one of my favorite 1940's blouses with this not-at-all related skirt and make it come together without looking like a complete mess. I actually like the outcome of the two pieces together! One of my favorite things to do in my wardrobe is mixing eras of clothing and trying to harmoniously make them work.
Once the photos were finished we decided that going out for drinks would be the best way to complete our lady date. We headed to one of our favorite bars in Ashland and ate potato and leek soup along with a healthy stack of french fries. I ordered my favorite, gin and tonic and Bruklyn danced on the wild side with her coconut rum and coke. Pretty much the perfect lady date, wouldn't you say? If only the dart boards weren't all taken up! Ugh. Boys always ruining all of the fun.
What are some things you all like to do on your girl dates? I'd love to hear!
