Inspiration for a Thursday

Layering. Fall is upon us here in Nashville, and I've been experimenting with new ways (well, new for me) to layer. Slips and cardigans, tights and knee highs. I love love love how Marisa of Thumbelina pulls it off so effortlessly.

Beautiful and sort of ethereal makeup. I love the replacement of the eyebrows with lace. (source

This lovely collar made from strips of lace and ribbon by Carrie from Wish Wish Wish. What a great, inexpensive way to create a fun sort of "tie" if you will

New and interesting ways to style hair. While wearing bow headbands and clips everyday is perfectly lovely, sometimes you just need something fresh to try. I can't wait to try this one from The Snail and the Cyclops

Bold tights! I've been adding to my already large collection (2 drawers full..ahem) of assorted jewel-toned, rainbow bright, patterned/netted/etc tights. well any kind of tights you can think of, but I've been especially drawn to the bold colors lately...the plums, reds, hunter greens, oh my!

Now I am going to cuddle into bed, for it's been a long Thursday for me....night night lovelies

Hearts, Rainbows, and Unicorns

This past Wednesday I flew out to San Francisco for my fall break to meet up with my family. On Saturday we ventured into one of our favorite departments stores, Nordstrom, to try on shoes and fun makeup. Now I will say that I had just about given up on finding these beautifully ethereal Jeffrey Campbell heels, but lo and behold while browsing they were right in front of me! The 7 and a half fit just like a dream and once they were on they were not coming off of my feet. I nearly melted with happiness when I paid for them and wore them out of the store!

I will say, however, that the nude color pictured online is much different from the actual shoe in real life. As you can see from the pictures the leather is sort of two-toned, but they are so perfect!

More on the rest of my trip later...I'm jet-lagged from flying for nearly 6 hours today.
