la vie boheme
























i got this awesome white shirt while thrifting. i love it's boho vibe. so of course i wore it with my wide leg jeans. i feel like i'm about 6 feet tall with legs a mile long in these. i kind of like that feeling.

























today was beautiful. like almost warm kind of beautiful. yay!
just want to say thank you for all the wonderful comments from yesterday. i really appreciate all the support and the feeling of community that blogging gives. it's fun to get to know people from all over the place that have the same things in common and similar goals.
and just to let you know, i bought some colored lip gloss today. i'm usually more of a burts bees kind of gal but i realized that my lips tend to recede into my face. i only started wearing mascara and eye shadow a year ago. i've come to terms with the fact that i need to paint my face a bit more as i've gotten older. the next step is to find something that hides the dark circles and bags under my eyes. ugh, getting older sucks.
details:
jeans-juicy couture
shirt-thrifted, vintage
shoes-ebay
headband-felix and jayne

Hi Amanda! Discovered your blog through Chicfaced, and I am always happy to discover cool blogs from cool girls like you----especially since you and I have the same style sensibilities! I just backtracked your blog so I'm all caught up! You are in my faves folder now :)

PS: I love the whole 70s vibe of this outfit, especially the unexpected whimsy of the headband! Very chic!

Cheers,

Oh, this outfit it so super awesome! You look so cool an chic! LOVE it. Your legs do look a mile long!

also, I tried to add you as my "obsession of the week" but my blog totally flipped out and said I was denied access to it and well, it was weird, and it sort of disappeared. But then I got it back. And so I deleted the whole feature. I will try again later. I don't know what is wrong!!

Ah, crisp and refreshing. Often people shy away from simple when really, it is one of the hardest things to get right--but when you get it, you GET it. You look perfect here!
