Ringling
























































(What I was Wearing: A Cooperative Polar Bear Sweater from UO that was a gift,  Bullhead Roll-up Shorts from Pacsun $24, My father's old Fossil watch, Sunnies from Forever 21 for $6, A pair of Oxfords from Forever 21 $24, A pair of UO tights $4, My Dooney & Bourke purse given to me as a gift. What Chanel was wearing: An Asos Dress, A great button-up from years ago, her Aviators, her Aldo combat boots, her Aldo Purse, and a few rings.)

Sorry I've been gone awhile, pretty much a week. Just busy with things, my grandma was ill for a bit too but she's better now.  This past Friday Chanel & I spent the day at Ringling Museum of Art & Design.  If you've ever been to the Sarasota/Bradenton area of Florida then you must have heard of this amazing place.  I'm a huge fan of museums in general but Chanel & I get into this one for free because we're local students.  This wasn't my first time there but it was my first time documenting it with pictures.  I grew up here so it's definitely easy to just want to go here every single day.  It's so huge and it's got tons of beautiful architecture.  John & Mable Ringling actually lived there at the Ca D'Zan (the last few pictures of me next to that gorgeous house looking like a fool) and collected all the baroque and fine art that they later built the museum for.  Mable also had a fantastic rose garden there where Chanel & I found our flower friends (we're strange).  And finally there's a circus museum because that is how the Ringling's made their money!

Overall it's a fantastic place to go if you're on vacation and it's definitely an entire day trip! Great way to start my week-end!  It's also day 12 of my 60 day no shopping challenge and I'm doing just fine!

Hope you all had a great week-end!
