Daughter of a Military Man

 Top: Wet Seal, Shorts: Maurices, Heels: H&M, Necklaces: Thrifted, Sweater: Old Navy, Fedora: Target, Bracelets: Gifted

I hope all of you are enjoying the start to summer! Today it stormed for a little bit, storms are my favorite when it rains. There's just something so relaxing about a thunderstorm and being able to lay in my bed and read a book. I've been working a lot more and I'm really enjoying it, and I also feel like I'm actually getting the hang of it. 
Today on my way to work I heard a song on the radio called "Military Man" by Jessie James and I was blown away by how accurate it was in comparison to my life. My whole childhood was filled with moving around, national anthems and military life. My dad was in the marine corp for over twenty years, and I'm so incredibly proud of him. I wouldn't change my childhood at all. I loved being able to live in different places and I appreciate our troops so incredibly much, and I have the kind of respect for them and for our country that I never would have had if it hadn't been for growing up in a military family.

    Your dad sounds like a pretty cool military dude. My thanks goes out to him! :) I'm glad that you enjoyed all the moving around and such, because I know there are many people who can't stand it or have a really tough time with it. That's awesome that you didn't!

  18. Love that fedora! I need to get myself a great versatile fedora like that. And it's kinda funny, I saw your sandals and I really liked them, and thought "I wonder if I could get a pair like that from H&M..."
