distractions, white socks, and mustard yellow rosettes!!!

i get easily distracted.

yup, i was the kid told to nap but couldn't. and didn't. that's why mom didn't make me nap a lot. but i did have a hard time sleeping at night, too. there were a million things running through my mind - like songs i learned at school or the next adventure i'd go on with my barbie dolls and stuff animals. ha! 

so the other afternoon, i hadn't slept too well from waking up in the night to sneezing fits (allergies, folks - gah!). plus my eyes were somewhat burning and i knew i could use a nap. i tried to lay down. i said i tried. 

and this is what happened...



i might have taken pictures of the room. of my most fashionable of socks. the windows. played with the settings of my camera as i tested shadow shots. listened to music. thought about life. caught on some blog reading. nothing changes. i still get distracted.

and look, i told you they'd make their appearance again.

are not jessica's modern pearl necklaces to die for?! i could plan nearly every outfit around these lovelies. the mustard yellow is the perfect shade - and adds that pop of color that i obsess about. 

collared long stretch shirt: forever21
belt: forever21
jeans: aeropostle
boots: madison/belk 
watch: fossil

with the weather change, jeans have been a staple. far too cold to wear my fave tights. but temperatures rise tomorrow (or so they say) - plus i'm going back home to SC where the temp is much higher than here in GA. i'm hoping to pull out a pair of my fave tights. oh, well. we shall see, won't we? (notice the nose trying to do it's scrunch again. yup, there it is.)

the weekend is almost here - and most importantly, christmas is almost here!! aaah, can't believe we are two weekends away. so exciting, but so scary how quickly time flies by, you know? i felt like we were just eating our thanksgiving dinner and here we are preparing for our christmas meal! 
what do you look forward to most for the upcoming Christmas weekend?

much love.
[happy thursday, friend.]
