I desperately wish I was wearing that adorable sweater dress and running around with balloons.
I might be a year older today, but never too old for balloons. I can’t wait for my birthday road trip down the coast this weekend. I have an unhealthy obsession with roadside motels and rundown towns on the verge of abandonment. The 101 offers up a slew of kitchy destinations sure to keep a road trip/vintage/antique/crap junkie busy.
Our destination is the Madonna Inn, definitely the swankiest roadside motel, followed by a stay at the Sycamore Springs Resort for some mineral spring water tub action.

A quick rainy day photo shoot. It started raining the moment Sam and I met up for our lunch date, but I couldn’t let it spoil my plans.
Sometimes you just have to work with what you have, especially when you work full time while also trying to run a blog.
I’m in love with these boots that Need Supply gifted me. I never saw myself as a combat-style type boot girl, but these have totally given new possibilities to my wardrobe.
They’re the perfect cure for overdressing.

Here are some photos from the Art of Fashion Foundation competition fashion show.
The Art of Fashion Foundation is a nonprofit organization, dedicated to international cultural exchanges through a variety of events meant to facilitate critical thinking among artists, designers, scholars and students.

The foundation puts on their annual competition to expose
and support emerging fashion design students from all over the world. The foundation
offers internships and scholarships to the winners of the competition,
while introducing them to industry professionals.

These are just a few of my favorites, but I truly enjoyed all of the creative designs that came down the runway.

Sunday mornings are always the same. A paper shared over a lox bagel and coffee from Thad’s Cozy Cafe, a walk with the pup and stop over at leftovers for the thrill of a good vintage find.
This Sunday was no exception.
Since the holidays are fast approaching, I find myself sneaking glitzy pieces into my daywear.
It’s getting me into the holiday spirit.
Best part of the season? The pink Christmas lights Sam bought me!

Ok, not a huge photo post like promised.
Crappy weather has really been cramping my style.
