The Lone Palm

lone palm 1

Sorry for the silence my blogger friends. I've been preoccupied with some personal stuff, but I'm hoping things will be getting back to "normal" as time goes on. Work has been busy as well, but I did have the fourth of July off. I kept it pretty quiet and mellow this year. Isla and I met up for coffee, thrifting and then spent the evening at The Lone Palm where I had a mango pineapple mojito. Yum! 

I got this awesome necklace and horse ring at a local flea market near my house last week. They're my new good luck amulets. I've found myself wearing more and more jewelry this summer. Lots of silver and semi-precious stones that hold magical powers. I'm not much of a religious person, but I do consider myself spiritual, if you know what I mean. These talismans help me stay connected to nature and the universe in an everyday kind of way. What are some of your magical charms?

Shybiker :

Nice jewelry. I adore the patterned tights.

Annebeth :

hope everything is okey honey! You look lovely, the tights are amazing. I don't really have any magical charms, except for this small pokemon figurine I always take with me to exams, haha!

Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys :

Glad to see you back, and I hope everything's ok. Your jewellery is truly lovely, and I quite like the sound of anywhere called "The Lone Palm!"

Steffys Pros and Cons :

Steffys Pros and Cons

Christy :

Glad to see you back, and I hope everything's alright! These photos are wonderful--quite moody and atmospheric. I've been really into jewelry with semi-precious stones lately (citrine, sunstone, amethyst...), especially when the gems look more "raw." My sister bought me a sunstone necklace from We Never Sleep on etsy, and it definitely has a spooky magical feel to it. :)

Lydia :

Love your shoes. Mojitos are one of my most favorite summer cocktails. Hope your summer gets better!

whitemaskgirl :

Cute photos, i did love the shoes. I really like your jewellery also. I don't have so many special charms, except a bracelet from Hungary.

29 Skirts :

Lovely photos. They capture the mood of being inside a quiet bar in the afternoon so well. Of course I don't know how quiet it was there, but it looks relaxing. The necklace and rings are also really cool finds.

JennaStevie :

I love jewellery like this, such fabulous and unique pieces. Your tights are really wonderful. Hope everythings going well!

Michal :

Hope everything's going ok! These pictures are really cool, I especially love the last one- the patterns on your shoes & tights go so well together.

Lady Cherry : do you take such aaamzing photos?? x

the girl never gets older :

beautiful tights!

rebecca :

i've found myself wearing a lot more jewellery this summer too, but admittedly for shallower reasons such as seeing something sparkly and it catching my eye...

Amber Blue Bird :

Your pics came out great. I always have a hard time shooting in low light.

SoFashionistica :

I have been looking for shoes like that! They are really hard to find on Etsy in my size.

blorange dice :

tights, shoes, coolness- check! you're just so awesome. everyone has to understand personal stuff! most people can't keep up with blogging every single second. glad you are around a lot of the time, though. (:

Kathleen :

I LOVE this post. I will have to try out the Lone Palm sometime. Those drinks look so refreshing. Hope all is well.

The Daily Fashionista :

The jewellery is really pretty. I do hope that you're are doing better and soon:)

And I don't have a good luck charm, but I do wear a necklace of my grandmother's most of the time to keep her close to me in spirit.

Kirstin Marie :

These photos are so beautiful!!

The Thriftaholic (Leilani) :

YAY I'm glad to see you back, I was a little worried-- hope everything is going better.

I always adore the jewelry you wear, both pieces you found are unique & lovely. I've been wearing a lot of silver & gemstones this summer too; as a kid I used to be obsessed with raw minerals and stones.

Jamie Rose :

I love your tights and those adorably awesome shoes! Cute necklace too.

Laura @ The World Looks Red :

Oh, I love those tights!

vanda :

Like the pictures!!!!♥

V :

your necklace reminds me of the italian "il corno" used for good luck. love your style... and your hair!
