Small Girl, Big Ideas

Petite Blonde du boulevard brune

Honestly, this small period of time spent taking photos alone in the park where Jason and I got married was a bit of relief among the madness. After a doctor's appointment, a hair cut, and getting my car in for it's not-quite 25K check up, well, it was a lot. This was just about 20 minutes of serenity.

This necklace from Anya of Pretty Pany is just about the most precious thing ever. I was really excited to wear it and wore it two days in a row (on my drive down too the day after it arrived.)

We all mostly came in to town to celebrate a visit from Rion & Alyson - our close friends who now live in Arizona and we haven't seen since our wedding last year. I was more than excited to hang out with Alyson - but a few days was definitely not long enough! Fortunately she's coming to visit this weekend too!

  7. Your dress is the same exact color as Pumpkin Spice Latte- I love it. Also, I am guessing these are post haircut photos? Because that second to last one your hair is seriously layered to perfection! Love it & happy that you get to spend some time with friends!

  11. Really loving your outfits with earth tones :) I'm swooning over this dress! If I didn't had to pay $50 on top of everything else when my last modcloth item arrived, I definitely would buy it. But I don't really trust it anymore! Anyway, you look really good in it! :)

  13. Seriously...you need to do a video tutorial of how you get such great shots when you are alone. Do you have a stick or something that you focus on? I can never get myself all the way in the frame...the lighting is bad...or it's blurry. Also you're an expert on hiding the remote : )

    Regarding the outfit...I LOVE that necklace and the belt is so sweet! Those shoes are some of my favourites. It's always the details that make your outfits so special.

  34. I absolutely love all of the little details in this outfit. That necklace is so dainty and sweet! Perfect with this simple, lovely dress. Drooling over your booties!

  35. Ugh...I just love burnt orange. It's the perfect autumny color, and it looks amazing on you! Your necklace sort of matches that delicious looking pretzel! haha. :)

    I wish I didn't feel awkward taking pictures alone in somewhere like a park. If I take them myself, I make sure I'm somewhere that no one will likely stumble across me. lol

  36. This dress is the perfect shade on you.

  37. Gaaa!! Look at those booties!! I want to snatch them off your feet, lol. LOVE.

  38. You are so adorable- I love your neutrals and very feminine outfit! It's always nice to have some kind of escape from the craziness of everyday life. I miss having that craziness sometimes, but most of the time I'm thankful to have my introverted "at home all the time" life lol :).
    i love your necklace also :) xo!
