day's end

{shirt: massimo dutti (on sale!!!!), shorts: old, calvin klein via costco, sunnies: faux rayban, sandals: old navy, earrings: gift, bracelets: gifts, necklace: j.crew outlet}

Guys, I know I whine about the weather here a lot, but I'm getting more and more scared about it.  We had this wonderful break while the family was visiting, meaning it was flirting with 100 rather than over 100 the entire time they were here.  Those blissful days are at an end.  But thanks to Mom and the sale at Massimo Dutti, I've got a few new shirts to tide me over.  I'm learning how to feel pretty with sweat dripping down me and coming to terms with the fact that my hair is just always going to be pulled back until the heat subsides.  Sadly, I got the cutest pair of white skinnies at a sale at Zara this week that I can't even bring myself to looking at until the sun goes down at night.

In other news, we go home in a month!  We've been overseas for a year already,  how did that happen?!  And this next month is going to fly all the faster.  I'm trying to finish up a few projects before I leave so I can have them ready for you  this fall.  Also, I'm working on filling orders so I can bring them home with me for...brace yourself...cheaper shipping!  That's right, I plan on bringing home a boatload of cards and prints with me to mail to you for much, much, MUCH more affordable shipping rates.  Here's the deal though, you have to get your orders in soon so I have time to get them in order.  And to sweeten the deal, I have a few new cards coming out tomorrow.  Be excited, be very excited!

  9. This is such a cute, wearable outfit! I love it!

  10. I think I learnt to accept the sweaty feeling. And as for skinny jeans they have to be relegated to the back of the wardrobe until at least october!!! :) It sounds crazy but I was in the mall last night and saw someone with the same outfit and hair [i took notice because they were on the phone speaking in English - I always take notice of these people because they are like me]........i wonder if it was you. :)
