I never thought I would say this, but I am glad it’s time for shorts again.

I love my mom!

She is one of the most stylish people I know. It takes a great deal of self control not to raid her closet. Sometimes I do… She can also be really funny, in-between being a strict and chic ;) It comes with being Eastern European.

If I’m lucky I’ll be half as cool as her some day.

*That little boy in the corner is my little brother! He is really soft and cute.

I am thankful for the ability to capture time.

Street Style

First is unknown, second and third are from The Sartorialist, last is from Stockholm Street Style

I have been (really) in the mood for slouchy pants, toned down colors, and menswear (jackets, shoes, gahh!! Hard angles, dream come true).

Figures, it’s not cold enough yet. I will patiently wait, maybe even turn down the A/C at home and lounge in layers and sweaters.

Fall is really really nice (I really need a thesaurus, still) (yes, I know I can go to thesaurus.com), and for me (maybe you too?) there is a mysterious, emotional factor. Maybe it’s the thought of cozying up somewhere warm with a cup of cocoa, but it brings about a mood un-encountered in any other season.

So, what’s the mood of Fall 2010? Pulling my Heart Strings is close. Lately a lot of people around me are going through a case of the broken heart. I don’t have man-arms to offer nor a penis (or any spare lady-parts for my broken-hearted guy friends)(that means mine aren’t on the market), my time and love will have to do. Is it worth much? Maybe, maybe not, but if I were going through the same now it would be nice to have someone there telling you so-and-so can prick off and eat a bum’s shoe dipped in tar.

Young as I was, a couple of years ago I came to accept that I wouldn’t find love for a long time—if ever—and I was completely content with a free life (independent ladies, do you hear me?). While some of my friends wanted a warm body next to theirs at night, I contently spread myself, a limb in each corner, along with four pillows in my very comfortable full size bed. Dates were nice, but I liked me time. I had given too much of myself to ~love (yeah, right), and had given enough!

Then, I met Trey. Now, in a mere two weeks we are going to be one year old. It’s surprising to me that I should have found him at this point in my life. It took months, but once we started dating I slowly learned how to share and open up to another person again. And compromise (that’s an important one). I’m not saying he would never drop my heart in acid like some other ones, but I am fairly certain that even if things don’t work out the way I want them to we will still find happiness. It’s a matter of having the right disposition, good friends, and a passion. If ever you place your dreams on anyone, let it be you and nobody else, but regardless don’t give up on love if it is something you want from life.

With that said, I love my friends and my boyfriend, naive as that may sound. Cheers!

With quiet eyes

Denim Shirt, Rose Studs, Michael Kors Sandals, Myself

I bought a denim shirt—finally—from a thrift store right near my house. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it, but it’s actually really nice… I mean, it’s casual but it has a collar! Collars take things to the next level of fancy, don’t you think??

I wore it with a simple white shirt, some comfy camel-toned pants, and my trusty lace-up sandals.

I have also turned to wearing glasses because contacts are irritating lately, and earrings because although I haven’t been inspired to wear jewelry I don’t want my holes to close! If you have recommendations, please suggest.

I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one

Kristen-style never disappoints. She is cute, tiny, has too many clothes and knows how to wear them. She is also really funny, and this combined is why I love her. To see what I mean, check out her BLOG! It’s prime.

I act a little goofy and maybe that’s why she likes me, but I can’t be sure this is a likable trait. It’s been a goal of mine for some time now to start making normal faces in photos, but I find it really difficult.

The weekend was made up of a lot of cafe-related things including, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, biscotti and my personal favorite, croissants!
