never saw the sun shining so bright

song of the day: 'blue skies' by ella fitzgerald
thanks for all the get well wishes the other day! they must have done the trick because i'm feeling a ton better.
yesterday afternoon, i took outfit pictures at the end of my friend's driveway! interesting, huh? well, i picked up her daughter from school and after dropping her at home, i decided to whip out the tripod and snap a few. of course isaiah was with me too and that always makes for an interesting photo shoot. he was in so many of the shots that i either cropped out or didn't use. he was playing in the gravel and throwing sticks around and basically making mayhem in the background. boys.
but unlike you unfortunates in the northeast, we've had gorgeous weather the last few days. sunny and clear skies and much warmer temps. gives me the hint of spring....
this is when isaiah picked up a huge tree limb and started waving it around. i'm in the middle of saying, 'dude, what're you doing?'

Ha Ha! Awww..... The Dude What Are You Doing picture is hilarious. And this look is so beautifully charming I can barely stand it.

I love the shoes.

The whole thing has a very sweet cool-guy-from-the-50s vibe. I like it. a lot.

I feel like this outfit so perfectly embodies the 70s preppy vibe you mentioned in your comment to Katie's guest post on my blog. I love it!

Ohhhhh this is such a cute outfit! And i freakin love that dude, what're you doing? photo. Boys... hahahaha. it's so funny because I make that face at my BOYFRIEND all the time (and I'm assuming Isaiah is your son? haha.) Luckily he doesnt wave around huge tree limbs but when he did (once in a blue moon) take my outfit pics, half would be of me scowling at him.
AND you need to share some short hair photos! Yeah... hair is strange... my hair SUCKED and then just started getting wavy-ish then eventually nice curls... then i cut it all off when i love it the most. hahaha why? who knows, emotional year maybe? I just want a wig of my own long hair that way i can go back and forth whenever i please.
