it's going to be a good day.

today is one of those days where the sun can't decide whether to shine or to hide behind blueish-gray clouds. it's not necessarily a busy day, but it's not a lazy day either. for these sort of days? i have a special routine.  
shirt: target // overalls: vintage // shoes: dsw // perfume: born wild by ed hardy // hairclip: vintage
document what you're wearing. i'm making a scrapbook full of various outfits to prove to my children that i didn't dress like a 1980's dork as a teenager. today it's just overalls {which can be very productive} and some flats that i've been wearing for years. it's comfortable, and my sister thinks it's cute, so we're making progress. 

set aside some extra time to read. i love reading, and i love finding new material. i'm currently going through kinfolk, vol. ii again and the same magic i felt from reading it the first time is still there. also, journal a bit. take in the sights that you see. another thing your children can look at. 

eat something you don't usually eatwe always have yogurt in our fridge, but i don't eat it that much. we happen to have some berries as well, so i made a yogurt parfait, with grapes and pineapple and peaches, because i want to be in the caribbean right now {with captain jack sparrow, if you want to get into specifics}.

take something you normally take for granted and make it beautiful. i have these three photos that hang in my room. i remember buying them a few years ago, and the fun mommy and i had getting lost in the big maze. after they were hung, i didn't pay much attention to them, and they just faded into the background. but now that i think about it, these are some of my most favorite things.
