life could be a dream.

happpy monday! my days feel all scrambled because when matt was away last week i was living like a real bachelorette :) froyo for dinner, frozen corn for lunch.. life was a bit unusual for a bit. routines have since resumed though!

it has been non-stop rain over here and it's supposed to continue for the whole week. i don't mind it because you know what they say about april showers and also, i will take rainy over boiling hot any day!  i wore this to go see a movie at the art cinema in our neighborhood. they always keep the temperature at about 50 degrees (or it seems that way) so i usually dress for antarctica when we go, and sweat the whole walk there. the top just makes me think crisscross applesauce. idk.. i embrace my weird thoughts. have a productive monday! i'll be planning my store window display for my visual merchandising class all day! :)

if not for you, winter would have no spring.

i have the spring bug. i can't resist delicate floral patterns like the one on this blouse. it was a simple/ cozy day, so i threw on jeans which doesn't happen to often on the blog, or off the blog either! 

i spent this afternoon grabbing lunch with gaby and our moms. we ate yummy cupcakes and i tried bread pudding for the first time, WOW. so delicious. have an extra happy weekend! i am not going to even try to conceal my happiness about this weekend because matt comes back from his trip saturday night! *biggest smile a girl can make*

you've got a friend in me.

as summer rolls around, i usually have less luck finding wearable vintage. for some reason i can never find great shorts/skirts that fit me right.. do you vintage shoppers have the same dilemma?

because of this, i went to the mall with my mom on this day and shopped forever 21. i am not a huge mall person, but i found some cute shorts & left with this hat which i am sure i'll get a lot of use out of! we also had a weird day-long cold front so i got to wear these pants which have remained one of my faves! here's to warmer days... and warmer clothes! :)

by the way, i'm spring cleaning so take 35% off my store with the code "endofapril" til' friday at noon

come and open up your folding chair next to me.

just watching the news with my dad and about to eat some of my moms home made pumpkin soup! mmm! how has your week been so far?

i wore this for an evening walk with matt before he left on his trip. i picked up sushi and macarons in our neighborhood-- two of my favorite things to eat. i think this is the end of my love affair with mint. okay, i lied, i still love mint but i've been making a conscious effort to wear every color so none of them feel left out. ♥

p.s. added lots of new stuff to my store!

alabama, arkansas, i do love my ma and pa.

got to my parents house yesterday. it was rainy/ cozy and i drank coffee and relaxed with my parents and my pup. it doesn't matter how quickly the years pass, i always still feel at home when i am sleeping under my parents roof. it's the best feeling.

you're not just good, you're golden.

fridays are good. :) this quarter is a toughie guys, i have lots and lots of reading! i've been spending my days buried in books and my sewing machine.. feeling like an introvert. but it is imperative to know about international retailing & buying & styling & advertising & visual merchandising (my lineup of classes). i really couldn't love all of the topics any more. life is such a balance between fun and work, sometimes i need to remind myself that its okay to have some fun! but working hard is good too..

anyWAY! i wore this to dinner with my fam on wednesday. decided to put on every shade of beige and gold that i own including this cute cute bow necklace that i haven't taken off. i apologize ahead of time for all of the outfits it will be in :) how are you cute gals having fun this weekend? on saturday i am working a job side-by-side with matty as a photographer and sunday... who knows!

✿ florals and bike rides ✿

the spring time makes me want to ride my bike and wear floaty floral dresses. ♥ it also makes me remember why i love delicate, fun, girly vintage clothes so very much. there is nothing, and i mean NOTHING that makes me more giddy than prancing around on my favorite bike (that matt got me for my birthday last year!) in a perfect vintage dress. that's exactly what i did on this day. we stopped by chocolate fashion for some french treats along the way! enjoy the bloomin' flowers, and have a perfect wednesday! i will be sewing for most of the day & reading your blogs :)

a comfy cozy day.

some days being comfy is just right, and that was this day (saturday). i think us bloggers (or maybe just me?!?!) are sometimes embarrassed to share our slouchy/oversized/not totally put together days, but here is one of mine. even though i like being really girly, i also like being really grungy once in a blue moon. i hope you all had a great holiday weekend. lots of love!

there's a universal dust in our bones.

i wore this for my first day back in school. this dress screamed vintage school girl to me, so i couldn't resist.

matty and i are spending this weekend with my family. i love road trips up north! we're going to be singing out loud the whole drive to our friend mike's new cd (this song is my fave) and eating lots of sweets along the way. i hope you all have a yummy food filled & family filled holiday weekend and make sure to smile til your cheeks hurt!
