Miami Diary

 {my pictures from Miami}

 My week of vacation in South Beach, Miami was full of relaxing and melting away with the sun. I found that I took less outfit pictures and more pictures of memories which was what my picture collection began to lack. I'm proud of myself for the pictures I took - I can't take all the credit though my new Olympus pen camera is so great and easy to use. Now back to the real world.

{Getaway} Miami

my hotel, the delano

I am so thrilled that I am leaving the chilly city to enjoy some fun in the sun with the boyfriend in Miami. I will be MIA until next Monday but hope that I can squeeze some posts in between my relaxing vacation. I promised the boyfriend I would be keeping my crazy blogging to a minimum and enjoy the smaller things in life for the week (we'll see how long that lasts). 

Finding What Fits

Have you ever found something that you loved but didn't know how it fits into your life? That's exactly how I felt for my love with tumblr. The website layouts and amazing and each post gets right to the point. At first I didn't know how to use my tumblr page, for a repeat of my blog posts or inspiration. I finally find the calling for my tumblr page; a page for my outtakes and inspirstions. It's things that you see on my blog but want more of or the inspiration behind the outfit. Because you can't have enough Passport Glamour right?!

Another thing that fits in my life in this sparkle-ly skirt courtesy of Shop the Far Out (check out their online store - its amazing). I love when pieces fit into your outfit and leave you with little need for accessories.

Almost almost spring

Even though the first day of spring is approaching nothing in New England feels spring-like. The sky is dark with little bursts of sunlight and the wind can be unbearable (especially when you are trying to take photos). The weather is getting a little warmer but layers and coats are still needed. I actually don't hate it because I can wear all of my lighter winter accessories again like my faux fur vest {seen here} and red suede pumps {both seen here}. My "bairly louche" shirt (that's the name and I love it) by Diane von Furstenberg is one of my favorites because the detailing is so strong there is no need for a lot of accessories. So all I needed was to piled on a few of my david yurman bangles and was ready.

Birthday Wishes

Thank you all for all the birthday wishes, I couldn't have asked for anything more. After my birthday was over I was stuffed from all the food, cake, and presents - I made every meal on my birthday a birthday meal starting with breakfast. I was happy to share it with some friends, my family, and boyfriend.

Swan Lake

I spent my birthday weekend at home (I can't believe I'm a year older), going out for meals with my family and blowing out the candles on my cake to mark yet another amazing year. It was great to be home and do absolutely nothing. My sister and I ventured to the lake closest to our house to visit the swans. It was such a beautiful and peaceful place (not to mention a wind storm). The wind didn't keep us there long but we got some great photos. 

Patterned bows

Missoni jelly thong sandals

 If you follow my tumblr you already know about my little early birthday present to myself {my birthday is in two days- AH!} to add to my shoe collection from Intermix. Intermix has to be the greatest boutique, physically and in the cyber world. I must go there a least five times a week. Currently I am dieing for their watermelon Mulberry and when I get the courage to buy I can just pick it up in the store - since there is no Mulberry store in Boston- boo. The classic Missoni pattern on the bows and jelly sandals are what sold me. It will take a lot of wear-and-tear to destroy them so I am hoping to have them for a while. I can imagine them with so much of my spring / summer pieces now I just need the spring to be here!

The Longest Winter

This has been the longest winter that I have ever remembered. The worst is that I feel like I am wearing every single piece of my wardrobe in my outfit trying to add layers. I am impatiently counting down the days until Miami {20 days}
