Sunlight in November

The sunlight in autumn just gets me. It is so incredibly gorgeous—but we must take delight in its temporality, for it is dark before dinner time, and for many months. We cannot get mad–sometimes, we, too, say goodbyes before we should. Sometimes we tuck into bed a little too early. Sometimes we wish the days away. No, we cannot be angry with the sun for hiding away from us for a bit. 
For some reason, the warmth of the sun on my hair makes me think of bittersweet things, like sunlight in late autumn. 
But no matter. I’m rather fond of this outfit. Can you ever imagine why? The color, of course! I just love it! The sheerness of the silk blouse and the sunlight–gah! Lovely.

Mixed Blues

I’ve been so into wearing blue lately, which is strange because I’ve never been much of a blue person. I’m much more a green person. As in, fan of the color green. Though I can be a jealous person (tsk tsk), and I am often sick (sadly, it seems). But anyhow, upon noticing this recent fascination with blue, my friend sent over a box of blue clothes to try! How wonderful! I’m loving this subtly striped blue shirt with a ruffle!

Wednesday Work to Weekend

It’s Work-to-Weekend time, since it’s mid-week and we’re all pining for the weekend!

Gosh I love this outfit. Sequin tank is from one of my best friends, who traded it in for another color, and let me borrow this peachy-pink one. We often send each other boxes of clothes to trade/borrow, and this was in my latest installment. I’ve got one allllmost-ready for her by the door!
The beautiful Rome-scene silk skirt it a great new find. I think it will work in spring, summer, and fall (not so sure about winter?)
Weekend Wear:
Jeans, a more casual scarf, and a slightly different take on the color combo, and I’m good to go! Sequins can take a girl anywhere!

Monday Morning

Gooooooooooooood Monday morning, dears! I hope you’re having a wonderful start to the week. All this sunshine (and time with the boy) has put me in a fantastic mood, and I am so ready for all of the good things I am expecting May to hold. It’s going to be a busy month, but it’s one of my favorites and I am hoping that it will be blessed.
