Let's Get Together


With the promise of milder weather we decided to brave a day up on the North Coast over the weekend. When the wind wasn't blowing it actually did feel quite nice, but of course along the coast the wind is almost always blowing and I was glad to have an extra large coat (not pictured here!) to burrow into as we explored the beach. I got this new tee from Camp Collective and while I love the back design (anyone else get the Let's Get Together song from the original Parent Trap movie stuck in their head??) it felt a bit plain in the front so I tried a little mini scarf action. I never know if I can pull off the neckerchief look; it's quite a Cool Girl look and I always feel like my scarf doesn't fall quite right or it just ends up making me look a bit neckless, but I keep trying it regardless. I think sometimes we can get too caught up in what looks work for us or are "us" and miss out on having fun experimenting with style. I know I fall into that trap too often! Cool girl looks (like awkward length girlfriend jeans, neckerchiefs, ombre hair, etc) always intimidate me the most since I'm still a bit of an awkward nerd inside. Anyway, it was a really fun day enjoying some of Northern Ireland's natural beauty again--something we don't do enough in the winter--finished with a cozy meal at our favorite harbour bar.

  6. Totally get this! I'm never sure I can pull off the neckerchief look but I just try to channel Audrey Hepburn and that makes it all better!

  7. These photos turned out really nice! I'm glad your trip to the coast was enjoyable. In terms of this outfit, I absolutely love it. I totally know what you mean about experimenting with "cool girl" looks but I think you totally pull of this neckerchief. I also love the embroidery on that denim jacket!

  8. These photos are perfection, as always! And, yes!! The Parent Trap is the first thing I thought of before I even saw the caption on one of your insta stories today. It is literally one of my favorite films and Hayley Mills is my favorite actress. Have you seen any of her other films? :)

    I'm the same way when it comes to cool girl trends. I've never really tried being cool (like with ombre hair, for example) but I bet if I did, I just wouldn't be convincing enough. I'll just stick to creating my own look for now.

    1. Yes, it's been awhile since I've seen one but I watched a lot of Hayley Mills movies when I was younger. I really like The Trouble With Angels and of course, the Parent Trap because it has Maureen O'Hara too! She's one of my favorites.

    2. Yesss, The Trouble with Angels is a scathingly Brilliant film! ;)

      And yes, yes, yes to Maureen O'Hara- I've never seen a film of hers I didn't like.

      P.S. I just discovered some of your older posts about classic films and I am going to go have a read. Also, I'm sure you already know about this but just in case, Warner Archive (Netflix for old movies) has the greatest films. It's all I watch these days!
