it's a sweater!

Well, now that the great "disappearing post" mystery has been resolved -- it was a Blogger glitch -- I can move on and post something new for you guys.

This outfit isn't anything particularly new or exciting (as was the case with a lot of my outfits this week, my apologies), but there is one interesting development: my hair is up! I haven't put my hair up in a while because it requires a lot of effort to wrangle it into a bun, but it seems that today it was feeling more cooperative than usual. Whew!

white cami, cotton on
sweater, f21
jeans, j.crew
cece flats, j.crew
headband, f21
heart ring, coach
gold bangle, kate spade
earrings, assorted
polish: 'mesmerize' and 'chubby cheeks' by essie + white nail art pen by sally hansen

For the record, my nails turned out looking a lot more patriotic than I intended. At least now I have an idea for what to do come July 4th!

I got the sweetest present from Tara B. of Little Girl Big Closet yesterday -- a teeny, tiny, most adorablest little spoon pin you've ever seen!


Here it is with my little wombat. And since that still doesn't give you a sense of scale because no one except for me actually knows how big that little wombat is, here it is next to a regular spoon:

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!! Adorable!!! I don't know what it is about little things that make them so cute, but I just squeaked with glee when I opened the box. Thank you, Tara, for getting me a little present for no reason whatsoever!

(speaking of presents, I still need to mail you something Eleanor, I am so ashamed at just how far my procrastination has gone)


That's my happy face right there. Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. I love your nails! How did you do them?

    Thanks for your helpful info about the cat. I haven't heard from it in the past few days.

  2. I love your headband Amy. It's gorgeous!
    How sweet of Tara! Such a cute spoon. Your wombat is equally cute too!

  3. you hair looks great up! so cute. how nice Tara sent you a little present! Fun!

  4. Your hair looks really cute like that :) The headband is the perfect touch!

  5. I love the headband - the perfect finishing touch!

  6. What an adorable pin! It reminds me of something that might be incorporated into Emma Pillsbury's wardrobe.

    And I too love the headband. Such a pretty touch!

  7. Such a cute little spoon! Blogger and I had some issues last week too! You hair is beautiful pulled up!

  8. You have the cutest nails! They always look so fun and girly =)
    Love the J Crew flats too. We both have an obsession with flats in general!

  9. It wasn't for no reason whatsoever! I was at an antique store shopping for a wedding present for somebody, and I saw the pin, and immediately thought of you for some reason (not *no* reason.) Plus you make me smile every time I visit your blog, so I wanted to do something to repay the favor ^^
    Glad you like it!

    Now,on to your nails...Let's get serious here- if you tell me you did them yourself, I will hang myself in shame. I can't even paint my nails one color without painting my wrists and armpits in the process --;

  10. omg! You look so cute! I love the casual yet girly feel to your outfit!
