Sequins: Peaches & Lavender

 

Sounds yummy, doesn’t it? True story–my mom is a really (really really) big fan of lavender, and there is a beautiful (and delicious) Lavender Festival held on one of the nearby islands. It’s a fun camping trip, and the festival has everything lavender that you can imagine. Including lavender ice cream, lavender cookies, lavender coffee. It’s a bit overwhelming to most but the die-hard fans, but I still like to taste. Same goes with peaches. My uncle, who is from Texas, calls me Peaches and it’s my favorite nickname. And between you and me, I haveĀ  a lot of nicknames...

But this isn’t really about food. It wasn’t supposed to be, that is. It was supposed to be about my new color obsession, ever since seeing my lavender-painted toenails paired with these sandals. I was obsessed with the mix for the better part of the day, so it surprised no one (and by no one, I of course mean Monsieur & Stripes) when I wore the same colors the next day.

What, one note wonder, you say? Whatever. This dress, by the way, was a whoppin’ 75% off. Very excited. It needed a minor adjustment, which I’ve made, and I love it. There are birds on it–I rest my case. This dress is also the result of shopping with my sister. She was in town a couple weekends ago and we went a little crazy shopping at the mall–which is something I pretty much never do. It was a blast and resulted in this dress, the yellow jacket and blue shirt you’ve already seen, and a beautiful black strapless dress. All on sale, which is the only way to shop. My sister is a dangerous girl to shop with.

Also dangerous, apparently, is Stripes! Do you see those shoes? If they look familiar, but you’er wondering if I just over-brightened the photo to wash out the red and white stripes, worry no longer.

Stripes bought sandals and I bought these–the twin sisters of my favorite red & white striped wedges, in a beautiful neutral tan. I love them. Monsieur loves them even more than their twins, which is strange (he’s partial to the flashier elements of my wardrobe).

The necklace is from the same place as the shoes, albeit purchased on a separate occasion. My coworker wears the most gorgeous, unique necklaces that I covet. But not really, since I’m not someone brave enough to wear large, chunky necklaces (that don’t feature an animal of some sort). Until this day, that is. I’m still working it in, but it’s a fun experiment. I think it’ll go well with the aforementioned strapless black dress.

How about all you quiet lurkers out there? Any chunky-necklace-phobias? Twin-shoe-purchasers? Food-related-color-obsessers?

Sequins: Exciting News? Perhaps…

Hallelujah for the weekend, amiright? And a holiday weekend, at that! You know those greedy coworkers who take a vacation day on a holiday weekend? Ugh, right? I know! I’m totally one of them this weekend, though, and I could not be more excited about my four day weekend! You guys are totally reading this as Monsieur and I hit the road for a trip to his hometown, one state south. It’s like an eight hour drive, but it’s totally worth it.

Why? Because we need to scope out the town for good apartments to rent!

…. That’s right, we’re moving.

It’s true, and it’s pretty exciting. I’ll be done with my job at the end of July, and we’ll be moving in August, after two of the three summer weddings are over, and then popping back into town for my second gig as a maid of honor this year. It’s going to be kind of crazy, but in a fun, wild adventurous kind of way. I’m excited and terrified and convinced we’re just being goofballs.
