Feeling Good

dress, belt, & shoes: goodwill, cardigan: forever 21
Somehow I end up repeating color schemes frequently... and I don't even notice that I'm doing it till later.... Oh well, here's another black and white, and purple and blue scheme... :) I found this spot to take photos today because I was drawn into the scent - whatever flowers these are, they smell beautiful! Bees were buzzing all around me as I took these, though.

So, I just though I should share with you My Brightest Diamond, or the amazingly talented Shara Worden. I fell in love with her voice the first time I heard her cover of the song Feeling Good, and from there, exploring her music even more, I became even more enamored. If any of you listen to the Decemberists (another band I love), Shara Worden is featured as the reoccurring female voice on the album The Hazards of Love. But anyway, she is just stunning. I'll leave you with that for now. x

  2. This has nothing to do with your outfit... but can I say how much I love your hair? I've always wished I could pull off a pixie cut like that. You're just, so dainty and cute!

    Aside from that, your ensemble is wonderful, what more can I say?? :)

  33. Love the collar on your dress :) Sort of sailor, sort of peter pan. Two such lovely things to combine. I end up repeating color schemes too. At least you're more interesting--I usually end up sticking to neutral palettes.

  39. Haha, I repeat color schemes a lot too, and don't notice until later. Perhaps it means you have a good thing going! I really like this outfit on you, it's so cute!

    I feel a bit weird popping up suddenly as I don't think I've commented before, but I wanted to pass on the One Lovely Blog award to you. I've been reading your blog for a little while, and it is lovely. So... yes.

  41. Alright. I've SERIOUSLY been considering chopping off all my hair and I thought I settled on leaving it long for now but you have once again reinspired me to rethink it... gah! Your hair is just so adorable on you! Did you have longer hair & just went for it one day, or have you always had short hair? Also love your dress, I had one similar a few months back but sold it on my shop & deeply regret it!

  48. Oh this is great! I'll have to try belting my gingham dress with a brown belt. Thanks for the inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  49. That's such a pretty color scheme! <3 And your belt is great!

    I really need to work on finding better places to take pictures. I think the trouble is that I don't really know what kind of places I like, so I never know what to try. :-P
