Floral Dress

Dress: Urban Outfitters, Boots: Wet Seal, Cardigan: Nordstrom, Fedora: Forever 21, Tights: Urban Outfitters, Rings: Vintage

Who says you can't wear summer dresses during winter? Simply throw on some tights and layer, layer, layer! Especially if you live somewhere unbearably cold (like Utah). This is how I turned my floral sundress into the fall outfitt I wore today. xoxo

Most. Fabulous. Shoes.

These shoes, from the spring 2010 John Galliano show, are simply spectacular! They remind me a bit of a twisted (but fabulous) tea party. Pearls, lace, feathers, and 6 inches tall?... what more could a girl want?

Playing in the Leaves

It was a lovely autumn day today, and on my walk home from school I decided to take the long route through some neighborhood streets I don't usually pass. I picked up some orange leaves that I found particularly beautiful, and marveled at how lovely this little world can be. Sometimes, I get so caught up in exams,and responsibilities, and trying to figure out where my life is going that I forget to take a breath and enjoy the moment. Today, I did just that. I took the long way home, and I rediscovered the beauty of just living.

Albert Einstein: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.”
