the rays of the sun are streaming through the waves in your hair

song of the day: 'making love out of nothing at all' by air supply
man i love this song. when it comes on my ipod, i really crank up the volume and belt it out like a rock star. i really need to get this on vinyl.
i am so ready for this week to be over! matt has been working crazy hours and i miss him. wednesday he got home at 1:30 in the morning! plus, i have just about reached my quota of mother/son time. he's adorable and i love him, but mom's ready for a break! and i know matt's super tired and stressed with all the projects he has to get finished. saturday afternoon cannot come soon enough!
and in other more bizarre news, the water pressure in the shower has mysteriously changed and now if feels like i'm showering in a hail storm. it whips around the curtain liner and the steam is suffocating. and it changed all on it's own! very strange.
sorry about the randomness of this post. anyway, i wore my scarf kinda tucked into my pants because i don't really like this shirt. and i've seen some other gals sport something similar. i like how it turned out. and i love the light in the photos too. i'm certain i couldn't recreate it if i tried.

i love how this turned out! i've been seeing girls do this a lot on chictopia - i actually favorited one of the pictures to try to recreate later. i think i may actually like it better with pants, as you styled it!

I love the belted scarf- seen it around as well, but I think you have pulled it off best. I like how you tucked.

Also, I forgot to tell you that that little striped, cropped tank came from Urban Outfitters Sale last weekend.

Unfortunately I just scanned the Sale section online and couldn't find it, but there were seriously like 20 at my local store. And it was 9.99. So good luck, I plan on living in it this summer, myself! :)

you may not be able to recreate the light in this post but I for sure will be trying to recreate this scarf idea! Love it!

I'm gonna be e-mailing you soon - look out!

You make me smile :) I sincerely love reading your posts because they are so genuine and goofy. Obviously goofy rates very high on my list of traits I demand in friends. Plan your trip to portland this summer already, because I don't want to hear you whining about how you missed out on awesome Annie and Merl time.

I love that you tucked the scarf in!! I've been playing with mine lately, tying it behind me to fashion a fringey-type vest, but tucking it in-I never thought of that! Ima have to try it cuz you look great!

You look fabulous! I think the skirt into pants is hard to pull off, but you definitely did!

Have a great weekend!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. Will have to try it. You look awesome times a million!

Diya said...

I really like how you wore your scarf... it's very original. I might just have to try that

Seval said...

Ask me about tough weeks! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Seriously, I loved the way you used the scarf! There are so many ways to wear a scarf! And this is so beautiful to make a simple outfit look much better and interseting! I loved this idea and I may still it soon :)
