  1. thanks, michelle!

    so pleased to participate :)

  2. I am ready to wear black ballet flats and throw my snowboots in the closet for good. I love fresh...especially the fresh lemon sugar. It's the best for summer! I must try the lip balm. Peonies are my fav flower as well. We lived in a tiny 70 year old house for awhile and I had 16 peony bushes across my back fence. It was heaven. I am also currently rockin to the new Vampire Weekend. I loved the last album so much. Am I old...or do they remind you of The Kinks? Will someone please help me rock my boyfriend jeans properly? I am so inept. I feel foolish in them. I am so short, and when I roll them up I feel like I look ridiculous. A little help? Great post...I am dreaming of spring.

  3. i love the top photo of what's in your closet. :)

  4. I LOVE the simple yet pretty everyday ensemble.


I'm hanging on your every word...let me know what you think!
