♥ that's a honey of an anklet.

truth be told- i have not worn an anklet in ages-
but when my sister brought home a few beaded souvenirs from her
trip to puerto plata, i chose the one that went best with my nail polish,
and fell in love with the way something so simple 
could make me feel so summery.

♥ footloose and fancy free.

tonight i watched carefree(1938), a classic ginger rogers/fred astaire film
that showcased the dancing duo's fancy footwork & a number of fancy frocks
that (for me) completely stole the show.

ps. check out a new favorite tumblr, what ginger wore.

♥ #f21 x me

i still don't really get what hashtags are all about.

but i do like that if you tag @forever 21 and copy the
hashtag above in your next f21-clad instagram selfie, 
you can possibly appear on this cool, new part 
of their website ;)

here are some of my favorites, so far:

♥ simple summer salad.

last month, our friends served a ridiculously delicious dish at their wedding.
 it consisted of farro, watermelon, and feta cheese- with a hint of lemon juice.
 simple ingredients, with flavors that complement each other in the best way :)
i urge you to try it as soon as possibly possible, and let me know how
you LOVE it!

♥ to the moon and back.

if you had a chance to look out your window last night, you may have
 noticed that this month's full moon looked a lot bigger and brighter
than usual, and that is because it was a whole lot closer.
this year's super moon was a stunner- and reminded me alot 
of russian artist leonid tishkov, whose collection,
aptly named, private moon, is about
"a man who found the moon
and stayed with her the
rest of his life."

i am so in love with these photographs,
and even more so, the sweeping and romantic
 story behind them.

♥ #freedolceandgabbana

tax evasion and sentenced to 18 months in jail- which means that the
italian fashion scene is going to be a whole lot duller and alot
 less colorful. let's hope they find a way to evade the police!
and in the mean time, let's celebrate their genius
with a few favorites from their 2013
spring & fall collections:

♥ cats & crafts.

the next best thing to having a real kitty folded up in your arms,
is having a plastic kitty, hanging about your neck or stacked onto
your favorite finger. which is exactly why i would love
to get my little paws all over i love crafty's 
feline fatale collection
it's kitty purrfection!

♥ she's dressed in yellow, she says hello.

dreary, cloudy days like today call for colorful grandma mumu
 dresses to keep sunshine in your heart and a smile on your face :)
i found this quilted number last year at the goodwill, and it has 
served me well, considering it probably once belonged
to a little old lady with butterscotch candies
in her pocket & moth balls
in her closet.

the same goes for your feet.
i am loving these bright and joyful loafers recently sent
 to me from the lovely people at hush puppies. not only are they cozy
 and comfortable, but their happy color definitely 
adds a little spring to my step!

 what do you wear on grey summer days?
