Literally counting down the minutes till ABC’s hit show “Scandal” airs… and let’s be serious, I am quite a sucker for such drama filled shows. We’re talking t-minus 40 minutes here. So while I’m waiting here patiently, I figured I would commemorate, who I consider to be a leading lady in the fashion world, and that is the star herself, Kerry Washington. Let’s take a moment and “aweee”..fab9088700ec7357266fc9f0eb25c0cd Kerry Washington, (wearing TOD'S) 32fda19f510146de2746eeb5c3ae423b d39bdda1e60d7a46d2672953b500c7df 66290a74faa7b0e1f176184049bfd1fb 7af445aafd3a2f64de57ae479cb777d7 a7d5f1bc4825524d0da85f76d35c3878 c0af6f96b03475195fe351369b27a3fe 625d0c7cf6da52d941793b4269780293 67ce3689468406ba3360ca240a791f3d b14dc49a946cb58590229a0b1c93215f 7a9976cf057b8ec41b8bdb80e7ce18c4 040320c420db490747bdc2949f79418a d26fc7019fac9e985717c424b47dac6c a0780fc5ad834a1ff54ae6b3fb53b1ff 0ed68500f583a54ea7cd3b477de39929

wise words of sunday..

While scrolling through my Instagram feed this morning, this lovely little quote caught my eye. Although I have not read the novel that this quote is originally from (“The Girl with No Shadow”) .. I always enjoy understanding the meaning of such words and relating to them in my world and the grand scheme of life. So as I write this blog post, I’d like to dwell on what this quote means personally to me, and what it might mean to others.

“She always had that about her, that look of otherness, of eyes that see things much too far, and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world.”

sometimes you just have to fake it.

Do i need glasses? No. Is my vision perfectly fine? Yes (knock on wood)… So then why am i so obsessed with nerd glasses? Because they are cool, and a fun way to “funk” up your look. So, hence the title to this post “sometimes you just have to fake it”. Get your nerd glasses on.

the growing love i have for wedding planning…

the growing love i have for wedding planning...

hahahaha. NOT. JEEZ.

I see this blog post just being so outright negative. BUT it is my blog, and therefore this is how i feel. Plain and simple. I’ve been feeling very overwhelmed with this process, and quite frankly am not enjoying as much as I wanted to, or envisioned that I would. I am SO excited to be getting married to the man of my dreams, there is no doubt about that… but when it comes to coordinating such a calculated and coordinated event, i just feel helpless. Anyways, to poke fun at my very negative feelings… I wanted to post this awesome tee via Stone Fox Bride (which i freakin’ adore).
