what i wore: pastels

 oh happy wednesday! as you can guess today is my friday, this may be my favorite work day cause knowing you don't have to work for 3 days is pretty sweet, isn't?
this is one of my favorite skirts. i just love the fit and color. i have so much it works well with too? remember this outfit? yup, still one of my favorites.
i wore this the day before easter as it was super nice out and heck, who doesn't love pastels around this time? the shirt is also another favorite which i bought at one of my favorite vintage shops, auberinge.  it has so many colors in the print making it easy to wear with so many things. i love versatile clothes, don't you? makes life that much easier.
oh and i have great news! well for me & tom, really...i scheduled a tattoo appointment for june 1st! tom and i will be getting matching square knot bracelets on our wrists and i will be adding some violets.. somewhere on my body...just need to pick a place! after doing all these tattoo designs i have been getting a major itch to get mine!

  2. alright, time to stop looking so perfect in EVERYTHING. you, amber, and trees are killing me with your fashion.

    i can't wait to see your matching tattoos! bear says he's too hairy to get tattooed, but i think he's just being a baby.

    1. oh dear, i am far from perfect! very very far!

      oh bear! making excuses! tom says that about a chest piece is wants to get, boys are silly. i think the hair thing is similar to a ladies "weight" problem, know what i mean. i think they may be self conscience. but i say get it! i can't wait to get them too! tom drew it on my a while back, and i was so sad when it washed off :(

  6. The skirt is the perfect colour for Easter - kind of eggshell coloured right? I can't wait to see your new tattoos! You must be counting down the days. Also I got some mail, it was wrapped in heart shaped tissue paper and tied up with a yarn bow:D Thanks so much! The cardy is lovely and fits so well. I promise to wear it in a outfit post soon xoxox

    1. well with gf/bf there is always that, are they gonna break up thing but tom and i are meant for each other so it was about time we got matching tattoo's. the square knot was my first idea and he loved it! well i knew he would seeing as he loves the sea and loves the little framed knots that you sometimes see in coastal areas, they are so cute! i am always keeping my eye out for one of those!

  15. Amazing outfit and photos! I love it :)

  16. I love that blouse. It reminds me of a vintage hanky. In a good way though. :) You look cute in white tights, too. I totally think I'd look like a church usher if I wore white tights or white shoes. It scares the crap out of me. Yay for new tattoos! I want to finish my left arm but the thought of $1000 more is petrifying. I'll live vicariously through you!

  17. I love, love this outfit! And ahhh, jealous about the tattoo! I can't wait to get mine done, but it just hasn't been the right time yet. And yes- I was totally drawn to this post because of the bike. I'm spotting them everywhere now that I'm obsessed with my new one. ;)
