Swingin Sailor Girl





For as long as I can remember I've loved to swing. My Mom had to pull me off the swing when I was little. I'd spend hours just pumping my legs and swinging! Yesterday was the first time I'd been swinging for years and years. Well, lets just say Jonny had to tell me several times it was time to leave before I gave in and hopped off that swing, hehe :o)

Vintage Sweater: found in DE
Dress: Thrifted
Shoes: Seychelles

these are, for sure, my most favorite photos of you yet!

you wear nautical better than anyone else out there Quincy! :)
and I can just picture Jonny having to tell you it was time to go! You guys have so little snow! I'm so envious! I'm going to pack all my new Spring wear for when I come to your house, and if it's cold I'll just wear it with tights and a sweater!

OH, Quincy I was the same way as a kid. Aside from my dolls and crayons, the thing I loved most was playing on the swings for hours. I still get the biggest joy out of it.

You have the most beautiful smile and I simply adore your sailor top!

Wow, I'm amazed at how many adorable nautical items you own-- I don't have any! Definitely going to look even harder now. Lovely photos as well, I adore swings and still go on them when I can, hehe.

That is the cutest sweater! What an amazing find! I love these photos so much... When I was little we had a swing set in the backyard, and I'd spend hours swinging! I haven't done it in years... seeing these photos makes me want to go find a park with a playground! hehe!

I loved to swing! hours & hours.

Isn't it funny how we forget these little things?

I too used to swing for hours and hours and hours as a child! All afternoon. There's even family video of it somewhere!

I loved these photos! So happy! And your sweater is so darling.
