Brick Walls Are Closing In // What I Wore

This is my last post from my trip to Ohio/Pittsburgh last month. As I said in my last post, I got to spend the night with Lauren and explore her town a bit before leaving. I took so many pictures that I thought it would be best to split them into two posts.

I got this dress at Lauren's favorite thrift store, and boy can I see why she likes it so much! I got this dress for a mere $2, and it is the perfect with eyelet dress! Every white eyelet/lace dress I've had before has been too short, but this one is seriously perfect. Not to mention that I also got a lovely purple shift dress for $1, and the most beautiful black velvet strapless dress known to mankind for $2. Seriously, I cannot wait for the weather to cool off more so I can take that dress for a spin.

Hope you all have a great weekend! Maddie and I are heading down south after I get off work to stay with our grandparents tonight before continuing on to Missouri tomorrow morning. I cannot wait to drive on the open road again! (I really am a Missouri gal at heart.

Relax // Where I Ate

Close your tired eyes, relax and then
Count from 1 to 10 and open them
All these heavy thoughts will try to weigh you down
But not this time
~ Owl City, Shooting Star

On the way back from Pittsburgh I got a chance to spend a night at Lauren's house, and the next day we had a few hours to kill before I had to leave so Lauren got to show me all around her lovely, little town including this sweet coffee shop! It was seriously one of the cutest places I've ever seen, the coffee was delicious, and Lauren is a total doll - so all in all it was a great trip.

Thursday or Friday I'll be sharing pics of what I wore to explore Mansfield, before "jet-setting" (in theory - really I'm taking my car) off back to Missouri for another week-long excursion. I'm so excited to get back into the country again! That was what I loved about Mansfield, OH. It's the perfect little county town and I love that. I just want to retire down south, pick up a southern accent and spend the rest of my life driving a big, stick shift pickup truck down back roads in floral dresses/jeans with my cup of ice tea nearby. ♥

Lovely Sponsors and Friends

Adored Vintage is an online vintage boutique featuring lovely, handpicked pieces. I especially love this floral blouse and this 1950's, garden party dress

Swing the Day Away is a personal style/baking/travel/lifestyle blog written by the lovely Sara. I got a chance to meet her in Pittsburgh last month, so I'm speaking from experience when I say that she really is the sweetest girl. I especially love her most recent post about our brunch at Meat and Potatoes (she got way more photos than I did!), and her outfit post in Philadelphia (I want to go there so badly!) 

Elegant Steps is an online wedding shoe retailer. As a shoe sales person I'm super impressed with their selection - especially since they have narrow and wide widths (which are super hard to get!) and vegetarian shoes (also very hard to get)! There are so many gorgeous styles, I love this bow platform heel and this pair of sling-backs

♥ This is a round-up of my lovely sponsors this month, that help support the Wildwood Flower, but all opinions expressed are my own.
