fall flowers.

for a while, i boycotted dresses. i only owned about five, and i wore them never. i felt like dresses were "cheating" because styling them only includes picking a bag and shoes. I liked the thrill of mixing and matching top to bottom. But lately, i finally understand. some days, it's easy to throw on a dress and to still be cute! it requires less time and less thought! which i like ;)

life has been quite hectic around here with holidays, wedding plans, matt's work travels, etc etc. we are going on a getaway next week, and i couldn't be more ecstatic. We rented a 1970's VW van in california, and are going to drive up the coast in it. Just the kind of trip i need. ♥

p.s. matt made a blog to document his work travels! if you're interested, it's here :)
