Bear Mountain














I wasn't kidding about wearing the same outfit twice! At least I had the decency to change shoes and add a sash, right? It just seemed like a nice dress to wear on a hot and humid day, since it's lightweight and airy. Bobby, Kim and I took a trip out of the city and up to Cold Spring, which ended up being an epic fail. We wanted to go antiquing and enjoy the quaint little town, but it apparently shuts down on Wednesdays. Cold Spring, how dare you!

We salvaged the rest of the day with a mini exploration of Bear Mountain State Park, where Bobby failed at climbing trees and Kim and I won at eating ice cream. You can see more photos at Bobby's blog and Kimberly's blog. Yeah, Bobby jumped on the bandwagon. Follow his blog, This Fellow.
Outfit Details:
In Yo Lace Dress - courtesy of ModCloth
sash: Postlapsaria
shoes: I can't even remember, but they're falling apart
vintage bag: gift from my mom, from her store, Hourglass Consignment

Kim's cute little bunner necklace is from an Etsy shop called Anirtak. I just had to explain that Anirtak is Katrina (shop owner's name), backwards. Her response? "Ooh, that's fancy!" She may have streaks of pink and purple, but she's all blonde, people.

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

  9. i noticed katrina's necklace right away (she's one of my bloggy friends)! sad thing is, i never realized that her shop name was her name backwards! ahh!

    that's happened to me before :P

    i think it's smart that you made the wide sash. i'm always looking for big bow belts and i never thought about making&using a sash. reminds me of all my old little girl dresses from when i was a kid.

  22. I love these photos! It's so nice to see you in a different location! What is it about being in the great outdoors that makes clothes look so great?

  23. Hi Keiko,
    I live in Cold Spring and during the week this place is deserted! Is much as it is filled to the brim on the weekends- it is definitely your best bet. There's always antique shoes and farmer's markets that are worth braving the crowds for!
    Love your outfit and the fact that you braved that at Bear Mountain! Next time you are there you should head to the top of the mountain- Perkins Drive, its a breathtaking view of the Hudson Valley + you can see the city from there. Take care! :)

  38. It doesn't look like a wasted trip at all! Look at that amazing lake and your fun smiling faces. I even like how real you were about wearing the dress twice. A real girl :)

    I love how you poke fun at Kimberly. It's obvious that you guys are so close and comfortable with each other. Will check out Bobby's blog too!
