Outfit Recap: Le temps de l'amour (Francoise Hardy Inspired)

Every now and then, when I'm getting dressed, I'll be inspired to go for a certain style. Whether I see a picture or hear a song or think of an outfit Hannah wears in "Girls", it'll spark something in me.  On this particular Sunday in May, I saw some pictures of Francoise Hardy on tumblr and was reminded of my love for the French style that was so prevalent in the 60's and 70's.

I love anything that was worn by Anna Karina, Bridgette Bardot and of course, Francoise- and this photo got me thinking about what to wear that day...

Summah time!

With Mom at her surprise shindig for her retirement

It's summah time for me! Worked my last day today & went to mom's retirement deal at work- and now it's time to relax...or atleast start the summer 'to do' list.

So, there will be updates on the fun times & projects I'm diving into soon. Can't wait to share it with you guys!

Status Update: By the Numbers

8 more work days 

3 more days to have my first draft of my paper done

5 more pages to write for the paper.

1 pair of shorts to dye darker blue for the Renaissance Fair, the reward this weekend for finishing the first draft of my paper. 

Have a great rest of your week, friends! Regular posting will resume after these numbers dwindle down to zero!

Outfit recap (and Real Talk): "If we holler loud and make our way, we'd all live one big holiday"

So there’s this pink wall in downtown Chattanooga, on the side of Julie Darling donuts. This is one of my favorite walls in all of the town. I’ve threatened to do a photo shoot there many times over the past few years & the other day, L took the camera from me & made it happen. So, here are the results of that.

Real Talk: When to get married?

[Admittedly, the next post was supposed to be an outfit recap, but I felt you all get an extra post this week! Hope you don't mind too much..]

Yes, this is my actual Pinterest board.
I got to thinking this evening and felt the topic of when to get married was in the front of my mind. So, here I am to put out my thoughts & see if anyone else has any thoughts on the manner.

So let's start from the beginning...L and I are at somewhat different points in our lives. He is working on his undergrad at the moment & I'm working on the tail end of my masters. Thankfully, this is not proving to be a big deal for us. He works really hard, as do I and we just want to do things the way that makes the most sense for us.

A Weekend Away: Cade's Cove/ Smoky Mountains

My younger brother is finishing up his undergrad degree in biology and recently was offered a crazy amount of extra credit for going up to the Smokies & doing a guided hike or two. It was one of his harder classes & my parents love the area, so they quickly arranged to make it a family trip to the mountains- L included.

Some Would Call It a "Hope Chest"....

The current view on my dresser

As I've mentioned before, I'm currently in a transitional stage, trying to move up in my job, finish up my masters & really figure out how to the whole "grown up" thing while living at my parent's house still. 

Well, it's hitting crunch time on much of those things & I started my "hope chest" the other day of things to move into my apartment when that time comes (hopefully in January!).

Looks like something Joan might have on "Mad Men", I thought
