she's got diamonds on her toes


hey there:) i didn't mean to stay away for so long but life got intense for a bit and i needed a little blog break to clear my head and process some stuff. gah! i feel like all i've been doing is whining about how tough things have been. i swear i'm not usually this much of a debbie downer but for some reason 2010 has hit me with a lot. it has required some extra emotional management.

i did miss my little blog! how have you been?

this last week has seen me some version of the same basic combination- button down, shorts and ballet flats-not very inspired but comfortable. i bought this skirt on sale last week. i love the vibrant color and the fullness. i think i may be able to transition it into fall. the shirt was purchased for my son. he hated it, so i rescused it from the blackhole he calls a closet. the short sleeves were a little...not cute so i pinned them and attached a small brooch to each sleeve to girl them up. these shoes are a favorite pair. every time i look down at my feet, it makes me happy:D


  1. I LOVE the pattern mixing in this outfit and that skirt by itself is fantastic. It seems like it would be very versatile.

    Creative idea with the sleeves on the shirt too! I wish I could be creative like that!

  2. Great pattern mixing! You look beautiful!

  3. I love the pattern pairing and that shade of green.

    As for life stuff in 2010, it seems to be going around...


  4. Those shoes! OMG! Haha...they are so fun and classy at the same time. Love it!

  5. Hi Courtnee! I hope everything settles down for you soon. We certainly understand that you'll need to step away from blogging, and will look forward to reading your occassional posts.

    I love, love, love these shoes. So sparkly! And that skirt looks darling on you! I saw it at Anthro but had to restrain myself.
