so true.

I hope you all have some fun weekend plans. I'm so glad it's Friday. 
We are going to a friend's art show tonight and we're pretty excited. 
She is so talented and does amazing work.
Then tomorrow is our day off, finally! I'm hoping to get some projects done around the house, and also try score a nap. I love weekend naps, just because I can.

much love,

Sky High

I have grown to love all the sky high wedges, heels and clogs that are all over in style right now.
I'm currently looking for a pair of sandal wedges. I love the super tall ones, but realistically, 
I wouldn't pick to wear those everyday. I'm trying to find a good balance of style and height. 
I'm more of a 2" heel kinda gal. Especially since I'm already tall...

Just take a look at some of these...
I swear, if I had an endless budget, I would buy shoes just because I liked them...
even if I didn't wear them all the time.

Shoes are such a fun accessory.
Do you like mega platforms or heels in general?
Or are you more of a flats kind of gal?

The Hunger Games

So...who's going to see The Hunger Games this weekend?

We! We! We are!

We're going with some friends on sunday. I'm really looking forward to it. 
It was a fun little book series to read, and I'm hoping the movies will be enjoyable as well.
I am most excited to see the styling of the film.
My imagination ran wild at the descriptions of Capitol couture dress, makeup and hair.
By the looks of these photos, it will be brilliant.

the lovely, Effie Trinket

Hope you have a fun weekend.

Look at Alice + Olivia's darling spring/summer collection.
I love the 50's silhouettes paired with prints, bright accessories, and lots of pastels.

I get to spend some time in the sunshine today, which is rare. I'm definitely looking forward to it.
I'm so happy spring is here!

do something

"If you want something you've never had, then you must be willing to do something you've never done."  -Thomas Jefferson

I am LOVING this gorgeous spring weather (and I cannot emphasize it enough).
Iced coffee, painted nails, lunches & dinners outside (my very favorite).
Just doesn't get any better.
I'm off to get my hair done today. Finally! I'm way over due.

You all enjoy the sunshine + thunderstorms, or whatever weather you currently have...

Introducing {What I Wore Wednesday}

Well I'm very excited to start {What I Wore Wednesday} with you all,
a weekly outfit post.
The skirt I made over the weekend is this week's feature. It was quite blustery that day, which was bad for the hair, but fun for the skirt. I love the movement.
I'm hoping to include things I've made/make, as well as just outfits I put together.
I have a passion for clothes and styling. I thought this would be a good outlet for me, as well as
addition to the blog.

Jacket: Anthropologie, Skirt: Tuck & Bonte, Shirt: Gap, Necklace: Anthropologie, Belt: Anthropologie, 
Watch: Le Mer Collection{gift}, Shoes: TJ Maxx

Please ignore my roots. I'm in dire need of new hair.
Also, I'd love to hear feedback from all my readers. Your thoughts and comments are welcomed.

Hope you enjoy and stay tuned for next weeks post!
