One bag

10 days ago, I left for a trip to the Philippines thinking I could use my phone's handy-dandy WordPress app to blog from anywhere in the world! WRONG. It turns out that developing island provinces are NOT flush with wi-fi hotspots. Who knew? Anywho, I'm back now! I'll post some pictures when I'm able to stay awake for more than 5 minutes at a time, but I did want to point out this miraculous feat...

Indie Newsstand: Pure & Papercut

I'm a big fan of independent publications, so when I come across magazines I enjoy, I like to share! Right now, I'm reading Pure and Papercut.

Double Sweater…What does it mean?

Vintage sweater dress + earrings, Victoria's Secret sweater dress, Jessica Simpson bootsSo my new favorite thing to do is layer sweaters, which is why this sweater dress + sweater dress/cardigan (last seen here) combo pleased me so much.  It's like a double shot of cozy on those annoyingly cold days!I think the trick to not looking bulky is to define your waist (hence the belt) and wear relatively thin knits--though a loftier knit might work,...

Getaway: Tropical Frontier

Around this time every year, I start to question the true purpose of snow--if it's not Christmas, I see no point--and dream about escaping to some far flung exotic destination where warm weather and palm trees are a way of life.
