Bridge Afternoons

Summer time in Colorado means lots of chances to hang out around rivers and lakes. In Phoenix we don't really have too much water to hang out around (other than Tempe Town Lake, but ya know, that lake is kind of gross). So when I'm here in Colorado I like to take in as much lake time as I can.

In Delta they have the prettiest lake that people swim in and fish at. The lake is pretty large, and throughout it is different areas where you can take walks or put your feet in the water. My favorite area is this pretty bridge that leads into a lush green island that all kinds of ducks and birds living on.

Recently I recived this pretty cluth from Kristina of Krust. She makes these beautiful doily clutches, along with other pretty bags. She recently debuted smaller version of my beloved clutch, along with a few other designs.

I really love my clutch, and will definitely being using it a lot this summer (and into the fall). It's large enough to hold everything I need, but small enough to be carried around every day. If you're interested, you can check out Kristina's shop right here and pick up your very own!

Today I'm going to spend some time catching up on my favorite blogs, reading, going on a walk around town, and maybe eat a popsicle or two. I might also be rocking the top knot again. I just can't get away from it now!

What are you up to today? What does your perfect summertime date outfit look like?
