Art Deco Floral Smock Dress.







Taupe chunky knit sweater, art deco floral smock dress, black leather backpack: a perfect retro outfit for fall. Black and brown is such a lovely pairing, who cares about "fashion rules"! Went adventuring with the sis yesterday and I decided to bring the camera along. Here are a few shots from yesterday.

I think this song goes well with the concept of this outfit as well as the look of these photos!

Knitted Sweaters + Tchaikovsky's symphony 5 in E minor














I love knitted sweaters! Oddly enough it has not been a popular item in my wardrobe lately! So I thought it was time to change that. I've found this perfect, chunky knit sweater and believe it's a great addition.

Another rediscovered love of my life is classical music! I have been listening to classical music everyday this week and I forgot how much I love it. When I was in Elementary and Middle School I would listen to classical music all the time. For my ninth Birthday, the only thing I wanted for a gift was a Cd that featured Beethoven's Ninth symphony and Tchaikovsky's symphony 5 in E minor. Ha ha... I was a nerdy kid, I know!

November the Month of Thanksgiving.










As Thanksgiving Day approaches it causes me to reflect on the things that I am very thankful for. I wish I could sit and list all the things but I don't have the time nor the will power. I also don't want to bore you guys. I would have to say the most important being my friends and family, the opportunity of being raised in a christian home, and you guys. I want to thank anyone who has read my post, commented or followed. You all have really been a blessing and I cannot explain in words how much it has encouraged me.

Dream of traveling the world.

I've been dreaming about traveling the world for as long as I can remember. I haven't had the opportunity quite yet but, needless to say I am going to make that happen no matter what. I don't know when, but I know I'll get around to it before I'm old. I am so fond of learning about different cultures and languages. Experiencing different cultures and visiting different countries doesn't compare to learning about them; which is why this is on my bucket list. The closer I get to thirty the more this desire grows.


The Road Not Taken 
Robert Frost  

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, 
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could 
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair, 
And having perhaps the better claim 
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there 
Had worn them really about the same,..."

Last Cold Winter + San Diego Countdown






It's getting really cold where I live, last week it actually snowed! What!?! It is the second week of November and it snowed in the south. Many people are predicting that we are going to have a rough winter. Good thing I can bundle up in all my sweaters, coats and jackets all through the winter. I need to enjoy the really cold weather as much as I can. In three months, I will be living in San Diego, California. Thats right!?! I finalized on a city that I will be moving to. Now all I have to do is look for a job and a place to stay. I am so excited because by the time I move there I will have 6 months of rent saved up. Just in case I don't have a job waiting for me before I get there. This gives me more time to find a job if I need it.

I can't wait for my holiday break with my family. This is the last year that I will be this close to them, so I need to treasure it. It has been really hard these last few months because I have been saving a lot of money, which means I have less money to splurge on leisure activities. Such as shopping, going out to eat, going to the movies, etc. It will all be worth it in the end. I wanted to move to California four years ago but life took a different turn and I had to postpone that desire for a while. Now its the appropriate time and I am so excited!

Counting down the days till moving day!

The Art of Creativity.










Creativity is a beautiful thing, nourish it and continue to let it grow.

Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
--Erich Fromm

Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
--Edward de Bono

Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you're passionate about something, the you're more willing to take risks.
--Yo-Yo Ma

There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
--Sophia Loren

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
--Scott Adams

Have a great Tuesday, lovelies!

Goodbye Warmer Days.











I shot these photos back in September when it was a lot warmer, so that explains the absence of tights. Despite the fact that I wear tights all year long regardless of the strange looks I get from people. Sometimes people wonder how I wear dresses during the cooler months. I just buy tights that are extra thick and layer so that I am warm and comfortable. I also layer underneath my dress too. I love layering, so why not! I'd rather accommodate my style to the weather versus letting the weather dictate how I style my daily outfits. I love simplicity and that is why I love this outfit. I just decided to throw on my favorite dress, a pair of shoes and walk out the door. Yet I feel like a million bucks (whether you think so or not). That is what individual style is all about, wearing what makes you feel comfortable and confident.
