it's all black and white


when we're not distracted by color...

we see beauty...

that we would not have seen otherwise.

Oh, and I've been meaning to thank my darling Style Porn for this beautiful award!

Here's who I'd like to pass it on to:
Morena , because she's such a sweetheart.
Allie , because we just get each other.
Brooke , because we go way back.

Sweatpants tucked into boots. How brilliant.
If only it weren't 90 degrees outside right now.

Which brings me to one of my fashion pet peeves:
When girls wear boots unnecessarily. It'll be like 80, and they'll be sporting Uggs (most likely with an itsy bitsy mini). I understand that fashion doesn't always make sense, but seriously, how can you stand for your feet to be sweating it out in there while your legs enjoy the breeze?

Ahh. I sit here, eyes heavy, heart happy, and slightly at a loss for what I should do with myself. Go to bed? Nah. It's 11:30. Why would I do that?
You see, I have been so preoccupied these past couple weeks, and now that the bridal shower I was planning during that time has taken place, I'm not sure what to do anymore.


I feel good though. Tired and good. And don't worry, I WILL find something to do. But right now, just in this moment, I will enjoy doing nothing. And then I will go to bed.

Here's some of my inspiration for the shower.
It was a french garden theme.
But it rained.
So it was an indoor french garden theme.
Pretty sure I am now obsessed.
I've started trying to think in French.
Not the language, just the style. The way of life.


P.S. Thank you all for your fantastic musical recommendations! I'm still making my way through them, but I'm so excited about my growing playlist. I think it's safe to say that my musical appetite has been satiated. At least for the time being. So, much love and thanks to you all, I really appreciate it!
