our iceland vacation!

i have a perfectly acceptable excuse for my recent absence on the blog: i'm finally getting back up and running after our week long vacation to iceland!  it's a personal life goal of mine to travel to a far away land at least twice a year.  iceland was the trip of a lifetime!  here are a few of my favorite pictures from our trip!   

reykjavik: a quaint city with adorable colored houses, water views and amazing restaurants!
what i wore to our dinner at the famous lobsterhouse:
paula bianco infinity scarf (new version available here)
muubaa leather jacket
helmut lang lush draped crossover top
baggu leather drawstring bag
ag adriano goldschmied absolute legging jeans
vince celeste heels
the streets were full of quirky street art- this cat was my favorite!
no trip to reykjavik is complete without a harpa shot!
hanging out with some trolls, and keeping cozy in layers.  my bdg cardigan was in high rotation.  and my baggu bag held all my essentials during long days of exploring!
the gorgeous coastal town of vik and the famous sea stacks, also known as reynisdrangar

big man and a litttleeeeee car!
exploring and keeping warm in my llbean parka and sorel winter carnival boots!

on our way back down from exploring a glacier in vik!
we mooed.  they mooed right back.  will never forget that moment!
my happy place: the ion hotel.  i lived in these free people overalls!
my latest obsession: livestock.  more specifically: sheep!
lounging and reading about icelanic horses in the ion lounge
that hot tub pool was my everything!

doesn't get more icelandic than icelandic sweaters and icelandic ponies.  had a blast on our trek with islenski hesturinn!
we finally made it: the blue lagoon!  my minnetonka kilty moccasins came in handy during all this walking!

what' not pictured: on the final day of our iceland vacation josh surprised me by proposing!  we immediately started planning when we got home- hence the extra week off from my blog.  you can follow my wedding planning (and get a peek at my gorgeous engagement ring) on my instagram!

i'll be back next week with my regular outfit posts!

park life

there's a gorgeous park just a few blocks away from our home in fishtown.  it's a little slice of country in this urban jungle.  normally the park is packed with kids, but last sunday night there wasn't a person in sight.  i seized the opportunity and hit the greens to shoot with my boyfriend.  for sunday date night i wore this gorgeous sheer sleeved frock from nylon magazine's recently relaunched online shop, and i kept us on schedule with my new bracelet/watch from TOKYObay.  i'm definitely planning on packing both fashionable and functional pieces for our iceland trip (less than a week away)!!!

i'll be on vacation from posting while i'm traveling next week.  keep in touch with me on my instagram where i'll be posting pictures of our iceland vacation!  a few things on the agenda: snowmobile touring a glacier, whale watching, and riding through reykjavik on icelandic ponies!  i'm seriously so excited.  i'll share some pictures with you as soon as i return!

this is the remix: summer in the city

summer in the city is winding down and i'm soaking in every minute of sunshine.  starcadian's remix of freedom fry's summer in the city is my soundtrack for august.  download it (for free on soundcloud), press play, and get ready to bask in the summer time zen.  

"when summer comes around will you really want it?"  
i do.

little white dress

i have about 20 LBD's in my closet, but i never did quite find the perfect LWD...until now.  i was browsing urban outfitters online last week and found the most adorable (and affordable) flutter sleeve button up white dress.  i wore it immediately as soon as it arrived and i intend to get my moneys worth before summer ends.  same goes for these knee high gladiator sandals!

i'm OBSESSED with kristin perry's new ear cuff collection! i'm wearing the dainty crystal spike ear cuff.

josh and i took these photos in fishtown.  afterwards we set off on foot for a romantic dinner at a spanish tapas restaurant and then met up with friends to scoop up some water ice for dessert.  luckily i managed to keep all the ice in my mouth and didn't spill any on my favorite new lwd.  :)

half time

we're about half way through the summer and i'm already craving fall so i can wear my jeans again.  i bought these g star raw jeans right before summer began and i've been waiting for a mild weather day to wear them ever since.  that cloudy weekend finally arrived!  since it's still summer i thought i'd dare to bare my top half.  i found my perfect match in my lululemon racer front crop top.  (i've been obsessed with lululemon clothes this summer.  the street perfect lab collection is meeting all of my summer fashion needs!)
