double take + smiling.

 sweater: f21 / jeans: Belk / Beams: c/o Blowfish Shoes
bracelet: c/o PoshLocket / scarf: Le Mode Accessories

stripes, scarves, jeans and knee high boots are becoming a staple for me. i realized this after taking these outfit pics and realizing they reminded me of an outfit post last week. being on the road this week (seeing my fiance! woohoo! mega happy dance happening here!), it's one of the easiest and fave looks for me to pack - plus i am constantly in love with all things striped.

and yup, that's pey-pey hanging out with me this week. he's not so much accustomed to the city right now, so he's pretty funny watching him jump at every sound and every person. and as you can tell, he kept trying to walk away while getting these pics taken. 
oh, how i love this guy. he makes me smile every day.

and you know what else makes me smile real big?


this beautiful green face, a universal symbol of caffeine goodness.
and you bet that this girl is smiling big.

much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]

p.s. TWO smashing giveaways happening here - don't miss out!

  9. Have a great time with your fiance! I completely understand how precious time together can be when you don't see each other a lot. Although my fiance and I live together he travels A TON for work. Sometimes it feels like we only see each other the same amount of time as before we moved in together. Soak it up :)
