sunday drive

Monday, May 16

Shoes: c/o Frock Candy, Pants: UO, Top: UO, Purse: c/o LeMode Accessories
Yesterday was brilliant. Warm and sunny and breezy. After church, husband and I went on a hunt for a small park to have a BBQ with friends at next week ... and it ended up turning into {gasp!} ... a Sunday drive. We NEVER go on Sunday drives. Or drives period. We're a go-go couple. If we're in the car, we have somewhere to go. So we go. And then we drive quickly to our next destination.
Like secret agents.
Or like people who desperately need to go grocery shopping.
Anyway. We pulled back the sunroof and went exploring in our little town. It's amazing that you can live in a place for 4 years {especially a farm-ish place} and not see everything there is to see.
Or discover the most perfect secret place to go on walks.
Of course, only 2 months before you move away.

I've cursed this town up one side and down the other. And now that summer's here, suddenly I'm an old sap.

I think only people in movies have ever looked more fabulous for a Sunday drive.

I love driving around... I do it kind of aimlessly sometimes.

Only you can pull that outfit off!

Sherry said...

Oh my - loving the outfit and perfect color blocking from your top to you toes! I love Sunday drives. When I was growing up, our family took a drive at least 2 times a month. Dad would teach us awesome songs and we would swap stories about our week (and I would take a nap much to my mother's dismay). It was a magical time and I loved it! My hubby and I took one recently and it was fantastic, insightful and relationship building. I highly recommend! Cheers!

Very typical. Story-of-my-life typical.

I love your hair. I'm sure you get that a lot. And the lighting & wind seem to really love your hair, too.

lovely!

and I know what you mean about getting all sentimental toward the end. I'm moving to Nashville in August and have been acting like a tourist for the last two months, trying to squeeze in all the little things I wish I had done during my eight years here. siiiigh.

Loving all this red. Def. your color!

M. said...

oh man. what a shame.

same thing happened to us when we lived there, only we discovered the treasure the day before we left! :(

your hair is looking extra fab in these

Laura said...

Oooo! This makes me mucho homesick! We loved Rexburg and the great Sunday drives. If you need some more destinations to go to, my hubby and I have all the secret connections. Ever been to the Ice Caves? Or how about the lonesome swing up by the dry farms? Very cool. I'm sure you've been to cave falls? If not you should go before you move. Hmmm...this has sparked an idea...
Love the outfit BTW. ;)

Meanz said...

Aw, you look so gorgeous! You remind me of a Rothko painting with these colors :) I love Sunday Drives, I think everyone needs more of them!

When my husband and I were dating we went on drives all the time through Hollywood and down Sunset Blvd. My husband knew all the great looks outs and neighborhoods in LA. Some of my best memories.

Brittany D'Lynne said...

Love those pants, and especially love them with that shirt. Sunday drives can be such a great time for bonding with your hubby and your town...or they can be a great time for getting in an argument about where you want to eat and driving around town for an hour searching for a restaurant you can both agree on. Bonding either way, though, right? :)

I love your outfit. I have the same top and like the way you paired it with the red pants. Is it really from H&M though? Mine is from UO and looks exactly like it.

Sara B said...

That outfit is amazing!! And I love those shoes!!

Joel and Brittany said...

I totally get where you're coming from Sydney! Joel and I went through the same thing. Also, Rexburg started getting some awesome places right before we left... wasn't happy! You'll miss it there like crazy! I know we do!

Lili said...

That sounds lovely :-) And I like your outfit... I'm a sucker for color repetition and this is a dedicated one!

my husband and i used to live/go to school in rexburg... i'll also cursed the small town & no shopping & snow... now i would give anything to go back to that phase in our life. there is just something about that place! i've made my husband promise when we retire we will move back... weird i know (considering we live in palm springs).

you look fabulous again, sidney! love those shoes! ^^ x

Melrose said...

random drives are totally underrated! It's amazing what secrets you can find! My sunday was icky though... the weather up here is definitely not as nice as the weather you've been having!

Also, your hair looks reddish in this picture. I think a strawberry blonde would suit you really well.

Nude and red combo looks great on you! That little bag is a lovely!

love love love the outfit! i'm the same way. rexburg has aways been my least favorite place on planet earth but lately i'm getting sentimental about parting with it!

genevieve, sandbox romance said...

I must confess, I spent several minutes looking at these pictures trying to decide if you had dyed your hair a brunette tinged with red. I've concluded that it's probably just the lighting, but it looks magnificent on you. Also, I;m obsessed with this look. A perfectly insane amount of color that, somehow, you magically make look wonderfully sane and awesome.

Christine said...

The shoes are fantastic.

You look very pretty.. I love your top and your shoes :)

Kalieta said...

Haha isn't that weird? You spend years in one place and it's like you don't really know the place. I love to wander in the cities because of that: there is always something you didn't notice before (although you passed it zillions of times) *sight*

Anyway, I LOVE your outfit! I like how you put your clothes together, it looks lovely on you ^_^

Hope you are having a great week!
