Although I've neglected this space and my Etsy shop for close to a year, I intend to start writing here again and posting new items in the shop once school is over. I am currently thinking, thinking, thinking of new ways to reinvent the shop in a way that might change what I've been selling, and I'm excited to see what I come up with. I'm grabbing onto this feeling of inspiration, mostly because it's something I've been lacking while in school this semester. Bear with me, as I promise a new and improved place both here and on Etsy within the next few weeks!

museum wandering

museum wandering

Polyvore is addictive.
I would wear this gem of an outfit to wander around an interesting museum, like the Met or the Smithsonian, and I would look dang classy doin' it.

An item from the shop made it into a treasury on the front page of Etsy!! Hello, excitement! I feel like a celebrity! (And yes, I had to google how to take a screen shot.)

As if I really needed another reason to long for Fall... 

Wednesday, August 10, 2011


This past week, I've been seriously longing for the Fall. It's not that I don't like summer, it's just that sometimes the heat can get to a girl! I was made for cooler temps- my wardrobe even says so- I'm all about layering. How in the world does a lady look cute in this weather, when it's uncomfortable to have even one layer of clothing on??! I miss my scarves, my boots, my hats, my cardigans- I yearn for them! 

Anyways, these pictures are from a few weekends ago, when Z and I went boating with our fam. I did really enjoy summer on this day, because I got to relax, swim, eat junk food and not feel bad about it, and get a slight tan. When it's the middle of December and I'm cursing the cold, I'll look at these pictures and long for the heat. 

 Contrary to what this picture portrays, we do have on clothes. Promise.

Abby and uncle Z- so tired, but she just can't let go of that mini tube of toothpaste.

thrifting loot

Have I ever mentioned how living in a small town in the Midwest basically equals thrifting gold? I was so excited about today's finds that I had to snap a photo and share it with you all! Most of these things will be hitting the shop as soon as everything is washed, photographed, and measured. If you see anything that strikes your fancy, let me know! 
(The green skirt is mine all mine, but how CUTE are those pink and blue bow flats??)

outfit: tropical neon

dress: in the shop
necklace: Babette
bangles: Epiphany6 & Co
sandals: Otte

If money weren't an issue, this is how I would style this dress. Wooden soled shoes are a good anchor for the bright, hawaiian-esque print of this wiggle dress, and the gold accessories would perfectly complement a nice tan. 

I'm considering doing a giveaway once my shop hits 100 sales (so close!!)!! Would anyone be interested?
