daydreamer.

dotty.
with spring on the horizon i couldn’t help but gather some dream garments and accessories for the season, especially since i won’t be shopping until then anyway. good thing there’s always polyvore to give me my “shopping” fix. when i do get to hit the stores again i’ll be eyeing lots of black and white, orange (those swedish hasbeens are so cute), and navy. a pinafore is a must this spring as well. i’m sure these picks aren’t much of a surprise (maybe even predictable?). these pieces would be perfect for picnics, trips to the museum, and little adventures with brian. any dreamy pieces or colors you’re looking forward to this spring?
p.s. i know i’m on hiatus, but that backpack is perfect for travel. let’s hope i don’t fail too soon.

happenings.

1. bringing the garden inside. 2. listening to fleetwood mac. 3. wishing these cement planters were mine. 4. refinishing furniture (before and afters soon). 5. adoring this little kitty kitty tote. 6. hanging terrariums (let’s hope these little guys live). 7. reading the awakening.

central coast.

i just got back from a weekend trip to san luis obispo. anne‘s family invited me to join in on their little trip down the central coast. it was nice! we dropped by the mission and a museum, visited quant beach towns, and shopped around a bit. i found some really good deals while shopping in downtown san luis obispo so i was pretty excited about that! i found a black chiffon maxi skirt at urban outfitters and a pretty shift dress from gap. both are great basics that fit well and were super reasonable (about 15 bucks each). i’ll be taking the maxi skirt to nyc next month. it will be great to wear over doubled up tights. oh and that brings me to another point (or promise i’m making myself). no more shopping for clothes/accessories until nyc… no matter how good the deal may be. i’m officially on hiatus!

apartment.

office.
this weekend was spent sanding down, priming, and painting our desk (i did it all myself and i’m kinda proud. brian is pretty proud too). the paint isn’t even dry yet and i’m already planning out how to organize all the goods, add greenery, pops of color, and light. i’ll have to post before and after photos when the job is done!

life lately.

il_570xN.2628031321. best friend morning roast. 2. love map. 3. succulents at paxton gate. 4. steven alan seaside parka for nyc (sadly, not happening). 5. chair obsession. 6. sunday breakfast at boogaloo’s. #goodlife.

black & tan.

there’s nothing like a blazer to make me (and my day) feel more put together. it’s been one of those days. hell, it’s been one of those weeks! and this outfit has me wishing i was sipping on a black & tan instead of merely wearing it. sheeesh, this girl needs a break. i’m so ready for the three day weekend and i’m hoping it’s filled with biking, cooking, listening to records, taking photographs, and above all, sleeping in. a museum day and/or visit to the botanical gardens will definitely be thrown into the mix as well. ah, we’re almost there. enjoy!
