Taking Flight for the Summer (because I dressed like a flight attendant)

I'm sitting in the living room of our house in Madison, Wisconsin. The blur of the first few days of jet lag has mostly passed and I'm enjoying a quiet, but drizzly afternoon in our summer house.

These pictures show me sweating in the stinking humidity of Hong Kong just a couple of weeks before leaving, yet here I am enjoying cooler June days in the United States. The windows are open, the humidity is nearly undetectable (at least by local Hong Kong standards), and life is good.

The last few weeks of school are always frenzied and fast paced. Between goodbyes, graduation and classroom end of year parties, there's hardly enough time to think! Nevertheless, we manage to always get packed up and on a plane without too many hang ups, errands run and ready to go.

This blue dress was a lovely vintage find from the beginning of last summer when we were in LA. It was a summer of discovering vintage and flea markets, estate sales and plenty of thrifting. 

I found the dress at one of my favorite sellers Blossom Vintage who I had been following for some time on Instagram. She has the cutest Jet stream trailer and a lovely selection of clothes. 

I'm hoping she'll make a trek out to the Brooklyn Flea this summer since we aren't going to the west coast this year. I've already been to Savers once and I've got loads of other spots I'm eager to get to for a summer of thrifting. Stay tuned over on my Instagram stories to check out some of my thrifting hauls. This year in New York City, I'm really eager to check out how the Goodwill/Salvation Army/etc scene compares to what I've seen in LA and in the midwest.
