I don’t wanna be there when you decide to fake it


neutrals and brights

What I’m Wearing
* Vintage ivory blazer …yes, again …seen here last
* Vintage black slip dress layered under my white MYNE Ashley Ann trapeze tank {seen here} layered under my pink ZOA NY silk tank blouse a bit wrinkled {seen here}. A bit of forced color blocking in an otherwise neutral outfit.
* Jami Rodriguez cloud pendant necklace
* black Indus+ry studded leggings
* Jessica Simpson t-strap nude patent bow heels …very old and only available in black, but these are cute!
* Tom Ford sunglasses

* Title: lyrics from Def Leppard “Love Bites” …which is kind of an amazing song and I think came out the summer before I went into 8th grade. Obviously, at 13 years old, I had no idea what it meant, but it’s a damn sexy song. lol, sexy. that’s a funny word.

While this outfit photographed VERY boringly, even amongst the silly and fun backdrop, it was actually quite fun to wear. The layered tanks swayed and billowed in the wind and as I walked and felt very feminine. I think the goal though was comfort …with a sprinkle of laziness added for good measure ;)

. . . I like it from behind better bahahahaah that’s what she said

back of creme jacket and leggings

horses and cactus+ neutrals with PINK

going through the tiny arch


* ummmmmm this tiny archway is RIDICULOUSLY cute! …but clearly made for gnomes only. I felt like Alice in Wonderland a little bit.


* * * * *


I finally installed my ceramic gun vase yesterday afternoon {in our Dining Room between the two windows, 2nd photo down} and added a peach rose from our garden. The Instagram filter just makes the photo so fun. You can get one here: Suck UK 1 Gun Ceramic Wall Vaseceramic gun vase

I just like this filter on it, lol

My office makeover is taking forever. I think it’s because I have ridiculous expectations for it and want it to be PERFECT, lol {but I’m REALLY happy with it so far & still “pinning” inspiration} …I will be posting details and closeups of it soon {maybe tomorrow} And for the record, I went with white silk curtains.

Yay or nay?  Pink or teal?  For my office ...leaning towards pink

I also purchased this little pink ottoman for some extra seating. Though now I want to go back and get the teal one as well. {they’re both lighter in color than in the photo and are covered in crocodile print leather}

. . . and you would know all of this and more if you followed my Tweets or my Facebook . . . so apologies for the dupes, Lovecats.

In other news: How is it Monday again already?!

    Totally Alice in Wonderland-esque with the little passage way. I love the cloud necklace. Just the right amount of fun!!!

    The gun vases are fabulous! I might need to track your table version down to bring a little of my hubby’s hobby into the house.

    I love the ottomans also. Definitely go back and get the other one.

    love the layers!

    so tell me…
    do you plan out an outfit the night before or do you just wing it in the mornings? i’ve always been a wing-in-the-morning kinda girl but thinking i might need to start planning out outfits. might help me be more creative…b/c i’m usually (95% of the time) running late!

    I am so jealous of all your interior design things. I dont yet have my own place to decorate! Shame. I want that ottoman when I do though! Gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing the end of the office makeover

    Kari Beth: I wing it in the mornings …and yes, I run late ;) Occasionally at night, if I’m feelin’ inspired, I’ll plan it out, but only in my head.
