What I Wore to Tea Time {july}

This month's Tea Time theme was Sundaes on Sunday.  Yes, I know, I'm not actually posing with a sundae because this vanilla with sprinkles was calling my name instead.  You can tell this was an extremely hot day as you can see my ice cream melting as I try to stay calm for the photos!  Immediately after these were taken I pretty much had to scarf the whole thing down before it completely melted all over my hand.

I'm really wanting to do more "on location" outfit posts like this one.  I think they're fun to read and fun to create.  I love including photos of where I actually am and the things that make it fun to be at.
This little ice cream place is about a mile from my house.  I've yet to walk there but it's always a fun bike ride away in the summer!  I prefer supporting the little independent ice cream places before going to Dairy Queen or Baskin Robbins.  The little guys are much more personal, and that's the kind of place I'm drawn to.

Would you be interested in reading more "on location" posts?

In other news, this week has been out of the ordinary fun.  Since I don't yet own my own house (working on it!), it's been fun to house-sit/cat-sit at my cousin's this past week.  Not only do I get to pretend it's mine, but the interior design fits my taste as well!  You can tell a designer lives here.  Being a designer myself, it's quite an easy adjustment to live here for the week.

Outfit details:
shirt: Joe & Paul for Target | shorts: American Eagle
shoes: Target | necklace: American Eagle

Go eat some ice cream!

    Aw, and I love the little places too. They're always better in my opinion.
    Haha, I can see the ice cream melting in your hands! It sure made the perfect prop for these photos.
    And thanks so much for the sweet comment. We hear it all the time, but it's so true! Once we realize we're okay with just being on our own, that's when it's best to get to know someone. :)

  15. I think the location shoot was SO fun and I'd love to see more of them! I agree that going to the location ice cream place is much better than going to a chain (and there's tons of local ones near me, being at the beach). You look adorable!

  16. I like this on location post of yours!~ it's so fun. I love the background of that ice cream shop and even more that you match it so well. :D You and your ice cream are twins!

    I adore the color of those wedges. <33

  17. How cute are you? I would not have been able to pose for pictures knowing there was an ice cream just waiting for me to eat it, haha. That top looks great on you! :)

  18. Such cute photographs! Great post x

  19. I'm in complete adoration of this post. OH MY STARS you are adorable! The outfit you wore matches both your cone and the ice cream shop to perfection and it just captures the epitome of summer happiness :)

  20. That top is amazing! Mmm I think I have to go get some ice cream!

  21. This on location post is awesome. I like how your outfit kind of goes with the ice cream cone (because of all the pretty colors, like from your cute shoes!) And oh no, I am sad that there are no independent ice cream stores near my home. I only have a baskin robbins.

  22. That top is adorable and I'm loving those cut off shorts. Plus that ice cream look delicious! craving a cone now.

  23. That little ice cream place is the perfect, vintage-y, colorful backdrop! I do like on-lcation photo shoots, I just don't have the time or patience to do them! I think you should do them though if that's what you're wanting to do! I love supporting small and local businesses as well, but that doesn't stop me from treating myself to a Starbuck's every so often. I wish it did, but I have to do my part in supporting the American economy overall! LOL! -Jessica

  24. Your outfit is so cute and those rainbow sprinkles are my favorite topping! Glad I found your page! Check out my blog and follow back on bloglovin' if you'd like!

  25. The colors of the sprinkles actually match the embroidery on your top! So cute!
