and there goes my heart. jeffrey campbell, you do me so wrong.
thanks to a wondrous night and morning of storms, it has yet to break 80 degrees here. that makes fall seem a little more within my reach. and i'd love to rock these looks this fall. i think it's all the plaid, but it reminds me so much of what i wore in junior high.

lexie of little boat (cute blog, cute girl!).
judging by allll the entries, you'd think i was giving away christian lacroix. thanks to all of you for being magnificent readers and friends. i feel lucky.
lexie, if you'll just send your details my way, i'll drop your box in the mail. it's small stuffs, but i hope you enjoy.
somewhere amidst the beautiful chairs i saw in paris, i decided that is what is in order: chairs. i can't afford the beautiful things i see in dwr, but i can make a point to pick up a chair here and there. but since i'm fresh out of money, maybe this t-shirt is the place to start.
via design crushing.
i think i've found my next must-have style. i love the long wispies in the front.
after being surrounded by beautifully chic people in europe, i'm dead set on a few things: 1) i must lose weight. my sweet boyfriend has been very nice about the whole thing but i'm just growing disgusted with myself. and, carrying an extra 50 pounds around sure didn't help my sore feet from walking all over the place. this is a big source of sadness in my life, and i'd very much like to do away with it. please bear with me if i mention it/whine about it/complain about working out/etc. here and there. and i'd love to hear any tips you might have.
if you haven't already, please try your hand at the europe in a box giveaway. it's nothing fancy... just a few small things from here and there.

to make up for my bad blogging this week, let's do a little giveaway. i'll pick up a few small things here and there while on my trip, and then i'll draw a lucky lady's name. let's make the deadline to enter aug. 3. just leave a comment with e-mail. bonne chance!
spread the word!

well, i am not doing the blogging i had hoped to do thanks to $25/a day (!!!) internet at the hotel. so, here's where i spend a great deal of my time netting it up. a sweet tourist haven. i think i've had a drink of some sort at every cafe in the square.
oh! and last night was independence day for belgium, so i had fireworks all over again.
well, i just wanted to drop a quick bonjour and show off my lovely photo.
hope everyone is doing well! perhaps i'll do a little blogging over breakfast tomorrow.

ok, i lied about having a my take thursday for the week. just couldn't find the time.
tomorrow i am off to brussels with the family, and then my sweetheart will fly in to save my sanity, and we'll head to paris and amsterdam. i'll be in and out with posts and, though i hoped to never have to say this, you can probably keep up with me via twitter.
e-mail me if you come across anything you think i might like! and don't you forget about me while i am gone.

i am exhausted and cannot really think straight anymore. i'll try to sprinkle in some excitement later today.
in the meantime, colors and patterns will have to do. and um, those shoes? they are awesome.
forever21 skirt | ruche top | dorothy perkins canvas shoes | modcloth scarf (vintage & sold out but so pretty!) | rafe clutch
wrangler mini | loeffler randall tank | henry begeulin peeptoe flat | marc by marc jacobs dr. q magazine clutch (one of my very favorite bags) | shanghai tang sunglasses (how great are these?)
i can't even remember the last time i looked good or felt good in a mini skirt. but i couldn't get over this wrangler* skirt.
*am i daft** or is this completely unlike what comes to mind when you think wrangler?
**yeah, i am saying daft now.
i hope you'll go check my feature on what i'd take along if i (god willing) was stranded on a tropical isle. i've been watching a lot of 'lost' lately so i put a lot of thought into it. what would i bring that sawyer would want? should i bring knives like locke? would my dog get eaten by polar bears?
for my companion, i was torn between jason schwartzman and rhett miller. but go check out who i chose!
thank you so much to her name was lola for featuring me. it was a ton of fun. now i just need to find a beach.
