Wearing: Extra Zest

Thursday, June 23, 2011

This summer has been as mild and cool as last summer was scorching. Which is fine with me. I love layers, so normally I feel completely bored during summer, but recently, we've been having the kind of weather for which lightweight blazers were designed.
It seems I can't walk into the mall without snatching up (yet another) flower pin...I have so many. I'm such a sucker for pretty little things, so I'm trying to put them to good use. =)

Do you ever do that, buy a bunch of different versions of the same thing? The display of goodies by the register gets me every time, and I just can't help it. Another little doodad for my accessory box? Yes, please!

Thanks everyone for the overflow of encouraging emails concerning my previous post. It's all been so scary and exhilarating...such an emotional roller coaster. I'm super excited to share the journey with you.
Much love, as always!

  8. Big fan of the flower pin! A crafty friend of mine made me a zipper one that I bet you would love; maybe you could make one and give us all a tutorial? :)
    On another note-- did you choose a winner for the last dress give away? Just wondering who the lucky girl was?!
