The colour and the shape

Listening to: The Foo Fighters.
Dress (as top): Ann Taylor Loft;
Skirt: Kasper, thrifted;
Sweater, tights, boots: Target;
Shell necklace: Hawaii.
How I've worn the dress before: here.
Skirt: here.

Just a lazy Sunday out with my love. My photos didn't turn out the way I wanted them to, so I just boosted the color a little bit and I kind of like how they turned out, although I prefer natural lighting the best.

  Anyways, this outfit combines lots of things I love: florals, ruffles and boots. The shell necklace is pretty sentimental. Jeremiah and I found it wrapped around a bamboo tree while we were taking a tour at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Oahu, Hawaii during our honeymoon week. We think the necklace was thrown on the ground and the bamboo tree grew in the center of it. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts at trying to throw it up the tree and hoping it would go over the top, Jeremiah just broke it and I tied the new ends together. The necklace reminds me of all the fun adventures we had in Hawaii. I like being able to wear souvenirs.

And now I leave you with last night's cookie, courtesy of Jeremiah's shopping skills:

How can you have a bad start to your week after seeing that? Nom nom.

signature1 by you.
