Topshop Envy

Last night Dan and I joined my family (my parent and younger brother, David) for a rollicking good time out in the sticks. Dan and David are both home for the week on spring break, and David's South African roommate, Rudy, will be joining us here on Sunday as well! It should make for a lively and entertaining week! Back to last night: We started our evening out at the Venango Inn and Golf Course for dinner. We had a lovely time, and much of our conversation was focused on the sail boat that my father just purchased with a friend and how much fun we will be having this summer while learning to sail on Lake Erie.

After dinner my father proposed we go to Sprague's Brewery, a rustic country bar in the middle of nowhere. Of course, we were all happy to oblige. Sprague's was hopping last night, as there was a live jazz/blues band bringing down the house. I had not yet been to the local establishment, and now I wish I had ventured out much sooner. Housed in what I believe to be a beautiful old barn, the bar was adorned with old signs from past local businesses. Dan and I ran into several high school acquaintances, and it was very nice to catch up with people we hadn't seen in awhile. I just love spending time with my family, and a delightful time was had by all.

Here you can see several of the items from Topshop that I would love to add to my wardrobe. Since I can't purchase them, the next best thing is to make believe on Polyvore and style them the way I would if I could. I hope everyone's having a nice weekend!


  1. I love all the outfit combinations you featured and could see many of the items in my own closet, especially the nautical print dress and the House of Harlow sunglasses.

    Did you get pictures of the barn bar? It sounds amazing!

  2. oh god. topshop.
    i miss you so much! It's so expensive these days.
    I love the last outfit, that satchel is perfect.
