St. Augustine

urban outfitters sunglasses. thrifted chambray button-up. richard chai love tee. forever 21 suede shorts and bear necklace. aldo shoes.

The other day, I had the chance to be a tourist in St. Augustine, Florida and boy was it hot! However, it was a good experience as I got to climb up a lighthouse which was quite frightening as I don't do heights (yes I know I did go skydiving!) but I just can't do heights. The view wasn't breath-taking, but it was still worth the climb! I was able to visit a fortress built in the early 20th century. . . which was really cool, but I can't recall anything from this place as the sun was frying my brains as I tried to look for shaded shelter. The town of St. Augustine itself was really cute with the cute colonial buildings. Wearing the chambray shirt as a cover up actually kept me cool because it kept the burning sun rays from contacting my skin! I also smothered my legs with sun block. . .they're the tannest part on my body.
I also got a tan line from my tee neckline. . . lovely. . .
Overall this place was really cute! Visit if you're ever in the area!

Maya said...

hey there!
I've seen those monkeys in somebody's painting before- kind of thought they were a real thing but didn't really see how- now I see the real thing and its pretty weird haha I like their hair!
Your style is very interestingly androgynous, rather cool- nifty shoes!
(also that sky diving post is insane- go you! woah!)

Love the mixture of colours here, especially that blue shirt with the sude shorts! It looks like an amazing place to visit, but maybe a bit easier on the brain-frying front if it is cooler :P

Thanks for your comment! (My paleness is simply because I rarely get a chance to go out in the sun where I am :P)
