good morning, fellow cats! the scent of vanilla and fresh earth is in the air at my house; scones are in the oven and I’ve just planted some sunflowers, tomatoes, and strawberries in little pots in my windowsill. I just returned from New York on Tuesday (really Wednesday morning, but alas) and I’ll be making a post on that when I get the pictures from my lovely photographer friend, Savannah.
This is another photoshoot from a day out in Dallas (quelle surprise!). Mum and I went to coffee at my absolute favorite coffee shop, Oak Lawn Coffee, and I picked up a copy of Edible, a rather lovely food magazine. After a very satisfying cappuccino and strawberry muffin, we paid a visit to some of Mom’s old coworkers, and then headed over to Dragon Park to take some pictures. It’s such a peaceful place, with statues and gazeboes and flowers and fountains galore. Feeling happy with the shoot, we went to the Dallas Art Museum to meander through the halls and eat lunch at the food trucks across the way (s’mores tater tots? do recommend.). Finally, we saw a new musical, The Fortress of Solitude, at the Wyley Theatre.
I’m wearing Charming Charlie earrings, Anthropologie jacket, AEO lace peplum, Lucky watch, Buffalo Exchange skirt, Target tights, AEO flats, Urban Outfitters sunglasses, clutch made by a friend, “Mahler Grooves” Carnegie Hall pin.
Hello and happy Saturday! Yesterday afternoon, I headed to the park with my mom to go back to when I was little, and didn’t worry about much besides what I was having for lunch that day. Twirling around the park at sunset and making dandelion wishes are much preferable to textbooks and calculators, so it’s nice to reminisce once and awhile. Next week, I’m headed to New York. Stay tuned for updates!
I’m wearing a vintage playsuit, AEO sweater, Hang Ten shorts, and thrifted jellies.
This has been an exciting week, and I’ve been up late pretty much every night doing everything from writing to seeing The Magic Flute. Tonight, Mom and I went to Deep Ellum to eat some pizza and see a play. Street art, beautiful and thought-provoking, decorated almost every wall of the neighborhood. We took pictures in front of a factory right next to the parking lot before eating dinner (vanilla mascarpone + nutella + pizza = a good idea). Dallas is such a sparkly city, and there was a perfect view of the skyline from our location.
I’m wearing bracelets from Turkey, Target sunhat, Urban Outfitters sunglasses, LOVE Republic vest, AEO lace peplum top and skirt, PacSun bandeau, and Pesaro sandals.
I escaped my French and Algebra lessons in favor of a doctors appointment, light adventuring, and lunch with my grandma today. Dallas is a fantastic city, the weather is wonderful, and I’m in a stellar mood, which all add up to a very lovely day indeed.
I’m wearing Vans sneakers, UNIQLO tights, thrifted shorts, Free People tank top, Delia’s cardigan, and alabaster shell earrings from my grandparents trip to Hawaii.
I hope your day was as lovely as mine!
well, the Texas skies have managed to spit out a millimeter or so of snow and it’s still going strong. It’s as cold as it’s been in awhile (by this I mean twenty degrees or so) and I’ve bundled up very warm. Purple shirt from Delia’s, thrifted sweater, Levi’s corduroys, socks from Sonoma, and shoes from AEO.
before my cello lesson, I went out to the garden with my grandma for my first fashion shoot. I’m really excited to get this blog up and running; I intend to have a mix of fashion and lifestyle posts. In this outfit: Delia’s pants, AEO tank, Macy’s cardigan, and Steven Madden boots.
Martin Luther King weekend was celebrated with the southerly extension of my family: my aunt, uncle, and little cousin. my mom had a conference in austin, so my aunt, cousin, and I spent the day shopping and eating diner in the capital.
I got some records from Antone’s, a new poetry book, “The Warmth of the Taxidermied Animal,” and a new skirt from Buffalo Exchange, before we ate dinner at Enoteca and saw American Idiot, a rather aggressive and rather enjoyable musical.
Adventure has taken on new meaning as of late and I’m finding every moment and new experience more enjoyable.
I spent the first moments and days of 2014 in Colorado with my dad. Colorado is very different than Texas, with colder air and warmer people.
On New Year’s Eve, Dad and I stayed in to do a puzzle and snuggle with Nube the Chihuahua. We went ice skating the following day, and later in the week visited family and went snowboarding on fresh, sparkling snow. I returned home last Sunday.
