...when you're the tickle monster.

I never make my bed. I know - that's horrible. I wish I could, but I have a small
child that wouldn't let me have a nice made bed even if I really wanted it.
Rowan and I had a little bedroom photo-shoot today, so I decided to
 "make" the bed [look made].
In this shot, Rowan's taking the sheets and pillows off of the bed.

 He FORCED me to become the tickle monster.
 I didn't want to.
 But he just wouldn't stop laughing.
 And there's nothing like a child's laughter to turn a mom into a monster.

     I was trying to get a decent shot of the little pink flower earrings; instead I got 
a shot of Rowan playing with the garbage can on my bed, behind my back....
I'll be changing the sheets before I go to bed.

I took this picture after he fell asleep - that's a small jar of wine in my hand :)
I just had to get a shot of the jacket with this look. I wore this for a couple of
hours at work, in the morning; but by ten it was too hot for life, let alone a jacket.
This whole look is centered around the necklace - which I'm currently obsessed
with. You'll definitely see it more often. Let me know what you think! xoxo

...when you go green.

My favorite color just so happens to be green.
  I love the vibrant green of the trees behind me, in these shot. We'll credit
David, the photographer, for choosing this complimentary location.
  I wore this cardigan once before - also with a green necklace, coincidentally.
The skirt you may recognize from here and here.
I hate when I own two items of the same color that aren't the same tone/shade,
which would look lovely together if not for that.
This luckily wasn't the case here -- both items had the same silver and
matching-shade-of-green combo.
The yellow pumps are perfect in this look -- and just about every look.

Below are a few pieces I found, inspired by the look above. I hope you like it <3
Happy Friday!! :)

...when you become obsessed with jewelry.

I know it's been a little since I last posted but I've actually had a bit of a 
"blogger's block". Not having the extra money to buy cute new pieces
regularly, I was having a little trouble keeping my looks different and new.
Just when I thought I would never post again, Chris showed up at my house
with this beautiful vintage jewelry box filled with amazing jewelry.

I immediately cleaned it and added my jewelry to the collection.   

Earrings and rings galore! 

And another drawer filled with earrings! 

This is my "little" necklace and bangle basket. I love all the colors and textures.

This necklace stood out the most to me -- so funky and trendy considering
the piece is over 20 years old. 

And this lovely classic necklace will go amazingly with everything - I can't wait to wear it!

This necklace is one of the ones I got from my mom a couple of weeks ago --
I just had to include it in these shots. Those are emeralds in the rams' eyes! 

I couldn't be happier with this new addition to my closet and wardrobe!
Thanks to David joining the workforce again, I'll be able to afford monthly 
trips to Plato's so I'll be updating more often... I PROMISE! ;)

PS - I love reading your comments so please keep 'em coming <3

...when you dress for the summer.

I wanted to wear something comfy to work today - it being the last day of
a very lazy week.

I chose light fabrics to stave off the horrific summer heat.  

The teal cuff and necklace, courtesy of mom's collection, add a fun detail of
color in the very pale ensemble

I love the sprinkling of brown in this look from the booties, belt buckle, and watch strap. 

I wore this cardigan in the office all day -- but once I left the safety of
the air conditioning (yes, my car doesn't have a/c) I stripped it off.  

The details in this necklace are charming -- it really fits the look well. 

And the bright pink cardigan is the perfect accent of color.

I am in love with the shoes below!!! Let me know what you think of this look
and the set. <3
