sailor girl

i just came back from downtown with my brother, i went to do an anthropology assignement which was basically people watching and writing down everything i observed for an hour!

i went to a little cafe called rocket and sat down with an iced latte and a cupcake and wrote and wrote and wrote.

then, when the hour was up, i went to meet my brother.

and oh my gosh.

i got a little sidetracked by a new vintage shop that just opened two months ago, and i had never been to before

as soon as i walked in the owner had just unpacked a box from upstate new york and this gorgeous perfect little sailor dress was just hanging there, calling my name. it fits like a dream and is the cutest thing in the world and i am so so happy i snapped it up!

i also got this vintage (?) oscar de la renta hot pink with black polka dots blouse, it's sort of shiny and a little too big but i love love love it. it's slouchy and perfect to tuck in to jeans or pants and ohhhh i'm so in love!

this week is going to be super busy for me, i have a ton of schoolwork due and to do - tests and papers and interviews.

i do have a few little posts lined up, a little a-z and pictures from my visit home on thanksgiving, so hopefully they'll be up over the next few days!

lots of love xx

i'm not sure how well you can see it
but my hair is blond on the ends, i promise

(please forgive my messy room
i also promise my bed is usually made)


back to school

Thursday, September 22, 2011

it's almost fall and i haven't posted since summer! but i have been incredibly busy and extremely happy so i think that's okay.
first thing's first, i'm back to school! and i am absolutely loving every single minute of it. late august i realized i had had enough of working my horrible job every day and was yearning to go back to school and actually learn this time around. so here i am, taking five courses toward and english degree with a french minor! my classes are amazing. shakespeare, ancient egyptian history, french, anthropology and psychology. could it get any better?
i also got a job at the school bookstore, which i love love love. 

these pictures are from the last little while. made a trip to my cabin with my mom and brother. we played cards and boardgames and trivia, baked a cherry chip cake and ate it with whipped cream, took pictures of the sunset and curled up inside away from the rain and wind and watched funny movies all night long (i forgot how much i loved bridget jones' diary). 

i ombred my hair recently, i'll do a post soon with pictures of it. i'm always wanting to change my hair, but not get it cut (it's a fear of mine) and not color it permanently. so this was a nice compromise! 

this post is getting a bit wordy and long now but i wanted to update you all and tell you that i hope to be around more now that fall is here and i'm getting settled into school again. i'm sorry for being away for such a  long time but i think i needed a little blogging break! i've been reading all your blogs daily, getting inspiration for my life and i love it. i'll begin commenting again now as well. 

happy september everyone! and lots of love

i went home. it was wonderful. even though i got very very sick. but family+friends+bbq's were plenty, catch-ups with old friends, cabin trips and baking with my mom. 

1. bbq on the front deck with family
2. brother before he went away to be a doctor for 3 months
3. cake my aunt brought, classy on a paper towel
4. backyard picnic table
5. pup on the way to the cabin
6. cabin couch and knitted quilts
7. how we used to light our cabin at night
8. by the pond, nowhere more peaceful
9. mismatched cushions
10. the trees have faces
11. moon in the sky
12. perfect view
13. perfect reflection

i'll leave you with these two songs that i cannot stop listening to.
i hope your summers are wonderful <3
love love
