The Rose Parade



That last picture of the ring is actually from a giveaway I won from the girl over at Walk the Sand. I was so excited when she told me I won, it took a while to register that in my head! I received the package in the mail just the other day and opened it to discover some very lovely things other than the ring, but all that were animal inspired! I am in love with the zebra clutch, it's so cute and I already have about five outfits in my head for it. I love cute accessories and I thank her so much for picking me, even if it was at random!



Today I went over to my friend's house and we ate half a bowl of chocolate cake mix, which a windup caterpillar was dropped in to accidently (poor thing! he crawled so slowly after that), then played some old school Mario on the NES and made my friend have a super awesome phone greeting where Mario music played in the background and he said that he said, "It'sa me, Mario!" (his Mario accent is legit and I'm asking myself if he's expertly hiding his Italian plumber-ness). Then, we went on a fun exploration of the river behind the house (not in this outfit, though! I changed hehe). We had to climb down a cliff then take our shoes off and wade knee deep through the cool water. It was awesome. I love nature, ahh! We found a snail and made leaf jewelry and everything. We took pictures on my phone, but for some reason, Mr. iPhone is being mean and not letting me access his pictures. Usually an icon pops up on the My Computer screen and I can just copy pasta the pictures, but not now, hmmm dilemma!

Anyway, I hope that everyone is having a lovely week! God speed, good people of Narnia!

You look like an updated western chick, which is totally awesome! But with a dose of extra cuteness and spring.

AND I KID YOU NOT. I once saw those almost exact tights at Urban Outfitters and have thought about buying them ever since!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

I lurve (yes, lurve) the play with patterns and texture in your outfit. You always look so put together! I bet you even looked pulled together whilst wading in the river. That sounds so gloriously summery, hope the pictures work out soon so we can take a look!

Wait, I was in Narnia this whole time and didn't realize it? Yay!

Toast with Charmalade

Congrats on winning the giveaway. The ring gorgeous. I usually don't like pieces with animal prints on them but I really like all the items you got with your prize. Can't wait to see what you wear with each item.
