Blue on Blue

Long time no see, eh? Sorry about that but I've got some pretty cool stuff in the pipeline at the moment. Ya girl just planned her first event, which went well, among a myriad of other things. I knew springtime was gonna get a little crazy but I didn't know it'd be like this. Not complaining though; just very excited to see what the near future holds. 

Muse: Françoise Hardy

Ever fall into a rut and need some fresh inspiration? I'm there. Oh yes, I'm there. Whenever I need a little boost of creativity, I turn to the internet. Lately I've been into dreamy 60's vibes. My Google image search history is full of ladies like Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot (MAKEUP GOALS) but my all-time favorite will forever be Françoise Hardy. If you don't know her, it's alright: no judgments here. She's a French chanteuse who changed a lot of style conventions in her time. She was sort of the free-spirited, gentle-mannered answer to "Bardot culture." She didn't wear a ton of makeup. She was a breath of fresh air in a time where femininity was over-exaggerated. Designer Nicolas Ghesquière once called her "the essence of French style." She's effortlessly chic, which is what Parisienne chic is all about. (At least to me!)

Springtime Boots

These boots are one of the most polarizing items in my closet. Some love 'em. Some hate 'em. They may be uncomfortable and a tad impractical but I embrace them. They make me feel like Nancy Sinatra, which is a little-known remedy for the mid-week blues. 


I'm Having A Weird Day

Quinoa and zucchini for breakfast. Taxes. A playlist containing Sleigh Bells and Frank Sinatra. It's been a weird day and it's not even halfway over yet.

I've started typing then deleted this post about five or six times. I put it away and came back to it about a week later. I didn't know how to talk about it without coming across as some sort of pontifical brat. I'll just put it simply: I gave up drinking, and no mom, it's not because I'm pregnant.
