Rochelle Sells Seashells by the Seashore

May 5, 2013


Well technically this is a lakeshore and not a seashore, and there were no seashells to be sold, but it was a beautiful way to spend an evening none the less. It’s been quiet on the blog for the past few weeks since I’ve been back and forth between New York and Vermont trying to wrap up some housing changes that will be taking place in the near future. I will elaborate more on those vague details at a later date, but until then, we’re trying to soak up every ounce of Vermont’s beauty while we still can.



I found this adorable little vintage dress at a thrift store while in New York and knew it had to come home with me. It’s not actually from the 1940’s, but it has a great 40’s vibe and is pretty much the quintessential summer dress! I’m in love.


And the shoes! These adorable wedge sneakers are also a thrift store find. With little obvious wear, and for only three dollars, I was certainly not passing them up. Since taking The Seamless Pledge in February it’s just been getting easier and easier to “thrift” or sew my own clothes. I may never buy store bought clothes ever again!



I’ve also vowed to participate in Me Made May but, with all the long road trips, I’ve been cheating a bit with how much “me made” I’ve worn. I missed out on the 1st completely (oops!), but did wear a handmade skirt on the 2nd, and have at least been wearing handmade headbands since then. Already this challenge has taught me that I need more solid colored separates in my wardrobe, and also a pair of handmade pajama pants. I’ve been living in PJs between painting, packing, and driving. Can you blame me really?



William took these photos of me at Red Rocks Park in Burlington. It’s not exactly a white sands kind of beach, but it’s so peaceful and so scenic that the lack of sand hardly matters. It must be so amazing to live on a lake.




Have you ever watched a sunset over the water? If  not, you need to remedy that immediately. Sunsets are good for the soul.


I also posted some little clips to Vine if you’d like to follow me. Moving pictures are a nice change from regular ol’ instagram don’t you think? I’ll try not to be a stranger in the coming weeks but, realistically, I won’t be back to blogging full time until the end of the month. Lucille can’t wait to have her own back yard again!
