i'm not even gonna pretend anymore.

 bow cropped top: H+M / skirt, turquoise ring, belt: f21
black tights: c/o We Love Colors / earrings: Le Mode Accessories / Vance booties: c/o Blowfish Shoes

as much fun as i had this weekend (date with edward was the weekend high and a half!), what i looked forward to the most was my sunday afternoon nap. the previous week had been so busy and so long that i found myself daydreaming for that blissful hour (or ahem, two) after church. that's when i threw off this outfit, snuggled into some sweats and wrap myself up in a blanket, crashing on the couch. i even grabbed Breaking Dawn the book to re-read (going through withdrawals, people) but i didn't even crack that before i found myself out cold. it was  one heavenly hour and a half. yeaaaah, baby.

so i can't pretend to myself that i can survive on coffee.
i need that recharge and it all comes in the name of sunday afternoon naps.

much love.
[happy monday, friend.]

p.s. i heart the pickled poppy and blowfish shoes

  14. The flowered shirt is so cute. That outfit on the whole is super duper cute!

    If I didn't already have plans with my inlaws today, I would totally have joined you in the pj/blanket/couch club. I did end up getting about two hours of crafting done though, so I can't complain. ^_^v

  16. yup, i totally took a nap this afternoon too. I had the hubby and baby in the big bed and it was wonderfully cozy on a really rainy day. =)

  17. I can NEVER take naps! WHY?! It's seriously the worst curse ever. I can be totally exhausted sometimes but my hyperactive self won't allow me to nap. It's actually happening right now. I just.won't.go.to.sleep. I think I have a problem. I even think this problem will keep me from DYING because I just can't seem to sit still. Does that make any sense at all??? Ohmmgosh, I hope no one else reads this.
    When you say 'Edward', are you referring to your real lover boy or to vampire lover boy? jeez girl. It's Simon, it's Edward... I can't keep up with you! Kidding. But if it's the vampire you're talking about, I'm glad we're on the same team, aka team Edward, not team Jacob.

    GOODNIGHT!
