scattered thoughts.

dress: c/o eshakti / cardi, belt, ring: f21 / tights: c/o We Love Colors / camera bag: c/o Jototes / earrings: c/o Le Mode Accessories / green bracelet: c/o IHOD / Hanakai wedges: c/o Blowfish Shoes

 whenever i come back from my GA visits or any sort of vacation, my mind is a little scattered...

1. yellow and teal might be my newest fave color combo
2. missing my fiance so ridiculously much but happy to be back with my family
3. thinking about the crazy, random fun (and lack of sleep!) i had at the highschool girls lock-in last Friday
4. breaking my own rule of listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving:
Michael Buble, Justin Bieber (sssh! don't tell anyone!) and She & Him are on constant loop
5. wishing i could crash on the couch all day and finish Crossed as well as the hundreds of other books on my to-read list
6. more than a little obsessed over my Jototes camera bag
7. airheads are making a comeback in my life
8. in party planning mode - maybe a Christmas party?!
9. love my new Smashbook from Ryan (can't wait to show pics soon!)
10. the to-do list is a long one but so worth it since i got to spend some much needed, uh-mazing time with Ryan!

what are some random thoughts on your mind, friend?

much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]
