The Tiny Heart: Decked Out

6.25.2012

Decked Out



Skirt Worn as Dress-TJ Maxx (similar), Belt-H&M (similar), Necklace-Classy With A Kick, Sandals-AE (similar), Sunnies-Macy's (similar for $20)

I'm standing on our brand new deck that was finished while I was away on vacation. The best part about it? It was freeee. Yup, one of many perks of apartment living. Our landlord wanted to build a corral for our garbage cans underneath and decided to turn it into our own private deck. Score! I'm looking forward to many summer nights having dinner and drinks with my hubby (and Jinx and Oliver) on here.

Big thanks to Jill from Classy With A Kick for sending me this gorgeous turquoise necklace! She makes them in so many other bright colors too and they're only $20 each. Want one of your own?

  46. Lucky lucky lucky! I'd be just as stoked if I got a deck while I was on vacation, too!
    In addition to chilling out there and having drinks, watching the world go by, imagine planting some herbs, peppers, or pretty flowers too.

    I love that you wore a skirt as a dress. What a cool twist!

    p.s. - Your hair could totally look as full as (if not fuller!) than mine in a bun. It's all in the teasing :) I don't even have half as much hair as that bun makes it look like!
