bits & pieces

I promise I am trying to pay more attention to blogging--I miss photographing and styling and crafting and baking things for this blog so, so much. If I could just get two or three more hours into each day, I would be bursting with posts. Alas, life slows down for no man (or lady). Here are a few shots from the last few months that I'd forgotten about until this quiet Sunday evening. Hope you are all currently as cozy as I am: big comfy bed piled high with blankets, vanilla chai with cinnamon & (extra) whipped cream, Feist playing on Spotify, and warm wool socks. It's the little things.

Autumn Essentials

the softest, sweetest sweater from Forever 21 / new Fall shades: "miss fancy pants" & "spinning again" from Essie / darling shoes a dear friend thrifted for me / new reading material, a surprise from my sweet-toothed boyfriend

The calendar says October and though the summer's blue sky hasn't given way to the classic Seattle grey yet, the streets are lined with shockingly red leaves that will soon snuggle against the grass and I am now accepting Autumn. Summer was magical, but I'm ready for a new season in more ways than one. So, Fall, come on in, and bring with you sweaters and lovely colors and pretty shoes and pumpkin-flavored treats and  foggy mornings and cozy nights. I promise I'll love you right back. xo.

polka dots and messy hair

Good morning! On this sunny Fall day, I have juuust enough time (before I have to get out of bed) for a teeny, tiny outfit post. Finally! I wore this outfit to church a few weeks ago. I apologize for the quality of these photos, but I'm having lots of camera/space/time issues currently, so you'll have to excuse me. As soon as I get a new remote + tripod, figure out what's going on with my Nikon (the autofocus is currently a bit ill) & find a space in my new house to take better photos, I'll be back. Because Fall fashion is here and no matter how busy I get, I can't keep out of that conversation. Sweaters, scarves, boots, mittens, red lips....bien sur!
