you walked into the room just like the sun

hello friends! i must say i've been quite busy lately.
lots of hours at work AND a secret project that me and some of my besties are working on.
i'll let you know the details in the next few months...
let's just say it's gonna be great!!

here are a few photos from yesterday that my sister snapped.
this is my favorite wall in her apartment.
she and her husband just moved into a beautiful place.
the building was built in 1908, and it has SO many historic features.
















headband: H&M, sweater: Calvin Klein, shorts: Delia's, tights: Target, boots: Aldo

i just bought these tights a few days ago.
i've been searching for some nice floral tights, and these fit my criteria.
ALTHOUGH....3 hours after wearing them, my sister noticed a hole in them.
dang it. tights & i just don't get along sometimes!

well, my dear blog friends...
have a lovely, lovely tuesday.
my day will be spent making crafts (i have a new project that i'm going to share soon!),
visiting my sister at her coffee shop for lunch, and spending time with some friends tonight.

life is beautiful, even when my silly little state of Indiana can't make up it's mind.
it doesn't know whether it's summer or winter! sillyness.
oh well. it gives me an excuse to wear this little hoodie a little while longer ;)

xoxo.

  3. Hi ya! I am so glad that you stopped by my blog via Lynn's {Hearted Girl} blog cause now I was able to find your blog!

    I adore your tights! I also adore old houses...the neeto historical designs get me {did you know my bro lives in a house built in the early 1900's and he recently found a hidden "bar" where the owners hid alcohol during the prohibition?!?!?...how rad is that!}

    Following you back :)

  4. I love this outfit! Those tights are fantastic, although I always end up ripping holes in fancy tights as well.

    Your sister's place (well, wall) looks so cool. I love old, historic buildings.

  24. um, thank you, thank you! you have now just inspired my look for the day....starting a bit late, i know, i'm nothing if not a late riser ; )

    but anyways, the casual look you've assembled with those killer lacey legs is what i'm attempting to emulate later on. i have a similar pair of tights and always feel like their too fancy, how you've styled them rocks, as yooj, you are darling as anything! sorry they got a dang hole though, perhaps a bit of sewing magic could heal them up.

    secret project has my curiosity piqued, so mysterious and cunning of you ; ) can't wait to hear all the deets!

    love your sisters home, it's wonderful to get a glimpse of it. happy weekend to your happy heart! ♥

  31. it is so hard to wear tights because of all the holes and snags they get but you look great. I'm your newest follower my dear :)

  32. Woah I love your stockings!! I like how you wore them with a casual '70s kind of outfit whereas usually some people would only use them for dress-up. Your sister's wall makes for a good pic background, too!

    I've actually never been to Sicily or Venice before! But I am dying to go ! It's so funny, each region is sooooo different from the next- the cuisine, the way people use the language/dialect, even the way people physically look and act. That's actually a good question- there's so much to say about that because Italy might "seem" like one country, but it's almost like different countries bunched up into one! :P xxx
