St. Auggie Inspiration

today jb and i trekked about an hour north to st. augustine, our nation's oldest city, for a little day trip. it was so much fun and i came home super inspired!  

we started off at one of our oldest and favorite haunts, the surf-station, home to one of the best collections of surfboards on the east coast. this store was converted from a gas station in the 70's.

 then we had to get some nalu's fish tacos for lunch, yum!

i always want to hit up this rad store, the closet, in downtown st. auggie.  the store consists of vintage finds as well as tons of handmade goods from locals, many of who are students of flagler college.

check out what came home with me...
the first piece is like a house dress with a zipper down the front and while it needs some serious hemming, it will be so cozy in the winter.  the purple dress is a cute cut, and looks like it has already been slightly altered, but I am going to take up the hem a bit more to hit above the knee. also, i want to add a button to the front of the little crochet vest! all the closet's vintage goods were 40% off, so i got these two amazing scarves, plus one more for $3 each! score!
 
and since it was so hot, we ended our afternoon with a little bit of gelato!


it was such a fun day, and a much needed inspiration boost! 

hope everyone is having a great weekend!

hugs,
the bird
