So dawn goes down to day

Sweater: Old Navy, from Marilou;
Frog belt: Highland & Ponce,

Shoes: Zigi Soho.

What a weekend! I've been on kind of a high from all of these one-year posts -- everyone has been so nice and encouraging. This outpouring of community and sisterhood just makes feel like, yes, this is exactly why I love blogging so much. I also feel a little sense of accomplishment, maybe in the same way someone might feel when they finish the last page of a diary or something. A year feels like it has flown by so fast, and then I look back at all these posts and think, Wow, I can't believe I meticulously wrote down so much of it! Okay, going to stop being sentimental ... now.

Amanda from The Upside of Wonder highlighted me and several others in her "Hello, Blogsphere" post -- check it out here. I love discovering new blogs to read and get obsessed with, so I'll very much be looking forward to this blogger feature in the coming months. You should also check out The Upside of Wonder -- I'm a fan of Amanda's sweet vintage style!

The outfit above is from Friday morning/afternoon. It's very similar to this outfit, but it's a different dress and belt. I've been really drawn to greens, yellows and reds recently -- I cannot help but try to match my outdoor surroundings sometimes.

My alma mater had its homecoming football game yesterday, so Jeremiah and I spent almost all day outside catching up with family and old friends. We also went to a tailgate held for all the people who did study abroad in Oxford, England (Jeremiah went a couple years ago. I almost went that year, but took an internship instead). I got to catch up with some of my friends from my college newspaper, so that was nice.

Hope you're having a great weekend so far. Got any great plans? I'm looking forward to the season finale of "Mad Men" tonight and of course I'll be compiling the final link list tomorrow. If you need some catching up before tonight's episode, you can read my posts here.

Happy, happy Sunday!

    My favorite is the 3rd one down with the sunrays coming through the trees. It never feels to make me happy when I see it in real life. You captured it perfectly, especially with your pose to frame it. I think it's one of my all time favorite photos of yours!
