My modified Tea with Jam and Bread by Heidi Kirrmaier is finished and it fits like a dream. I’m really pleased with the finished product and feel like this will be one of the well worn additions to my wardrobe. Here’s how I did it: I love the neckline of this pattern, so I usedContinue reading “f.o. | stripes.”
Lace from my dress, in the shadows, walking home from work. Finally, these skies, sunny.
I wear a lot of stripes. Almost every day. I adore stripes. They.are.great.
I just had to own a blouse with little saguaro cacti all over. Isn’t she a beaut?
A new turquoise drop necklace from The Vamoose, an etsy shop I quite adore. The chain is 27-inches long, which is just how I like my necklaces. Gorgeous.
I adore Cooperative skirts. I’ve got them in solid colors, as well as cheeky patterns like poppies and weeds. These are a staple in my wardrobe. Soon, I’ll have to wear them with tights, which isn’t as fun.

How badly do I want these delicious lace-up Fringe Boots? They are exactly what I’ve been looking for…and at a reasonable $78, I’m having trouble resisting. The only problem? The boots start at size 6, and even on my best days, it’s a stretch to fit a 5.5, nevermind a whopping 6. File Under: TakingContinue reading “Should I?

How badly do I covet this paisly pink dress from Modcloth? At $60, it definitely seems worth it, and absolutely gushworthy threads. But I guess I should save up some dinero, first? Similarly, the golden crysanthimum dress is equally adorable, but a bit more pricy, at $85. Why does whimsy have to break the bank?Continue reading “Favorite Finds: 1,233 Reasons to Adore the Whim.
