Outfit: Sweet As Can Bee

After some time away exploring some of the Irish islands with my parents, we are back home in our little gatehouse. It's almost funny how good it feels to get back home after some time away. Our house always seems ready to welcome us with its cozy embrace and all our favorite things in their places. I like coming home so much apparently I'm starting to rhyme! There's something so cheerful about our little house that it's hard to put into words why we enjoy it so much, but right now we can't imagine living anywhere else.

I feel quite pin-up-y in these little shorts and heels. It's a very 1940s inspired look (no surprise if you recall this inspiration post) and it feels like something Betty Grable would wear to show off her "Million Dollar Legs." These shorts have the sweetest little bee embroidery though, adding the perfect little detail to set them apart and start a theme for an outfit. Bees on shorts? Time to pull out my bee necklace and flower ring! I suppose next on my list will be some bee themed novelty purse (this one or this one?)...

  1. You are lucky indeed to live in such a cute little house! It must feel so cozy, especially in the autumn and winter months :) Your outfit is really cool and does have a vintage vibe to it. The shorts are beautiful!

  3. You always choose the best locations, love those shorts

  4. Love the shorts.



  5. Adorable, adorable, adorsble! Those shorts are just so cute! I know the feeling! I LOVE to travel but coming home is just so sweet, wonderful, and welcoming.

  6. Hi, Rebecca! This is totally unrelated to your post, but relevant to you, I thought. I know you love galaxy prints (I do too), and when I saw this baking idea I thought of you first. Not sure if you're into cooking at all, but if you are, this would be awesome for a party. http://iamafoodblog.com/make-galaxy-glaze/

    Home is lovely, especially if it's a cozy space. Sometimes my favorite part of a trip is the first week back at home, settling in again while also reflecting on everything I've seen. Such a good feeling!

  7. Those shorts are the absolute cutest! Beautiful photos and outfit as always <3

  8. @Aku, that glaze is amazing! I'm sort of into baking/cooking, sort of lazy lately! I'll definitely bookmark that one to try someday though. Thanks!

  9. Such a cute, gorgeous house! I love that yellow door! xx

  10. Your wardrobe and house are to die for. I honestly think a cozy little house can be cuter than a fancy mansion. Any chance you would blog about how to cut/trim your bangs?

  11. This is an adorable outfit, and the shorts are so lovely! It's so great that you love your home so much - and what a great home it is! Kx

  12. Your house is such a cute little house and those shorts are adorable too! <3
