the other day i went shopping and found myself drawn to only neutral colors. oh, you've never heard of them either? you know, the ones that don't belong in the bright colors or neon section (aka the only colors i'm normally ever drawn to) like beige, nude, whites, and browns. so weird for me. i was introduced to a whole new world, it felt like.

but even with this neutral top, i found a way to pop in some color with these crazy awesome wedges. i just can't seem to get away from color. so nope, the child-who-is-forever-in-love-with-80's-neon-colors has not yet left the building.


 oh and you knoooow a close-up was necessary on my arrow bracelet, made from katniss' actual arrow. 
okay, not really. but i like to tell myself that.

much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]

p.s. don't forget the sweet Rissy Roo's giveaway on da bloggity-blog this week!

And I am happy to say all three books have been read, I am happy with the ending and more obsessed with arrows now than ever.

  9. These are seriously the most gorgeous pictures of you ever. Obviously the clothes are amazing, but you are literally glowing and beaming with happiness. So naturally, incredibly stunning. I'm so jealous. PLEASE tell me you have some secret on how to look like this constantly so I can harness this power too. :)

  10. I sort of love this issue. I think neutrals are really flattering on you because you have such beautiful, noticeable features. Toning down everything else lets your beauty shine through, cheesy though that may sounds. May try neutrals with pops of color in accessories, which is I guess what you did here. A good bright necklace or belt can go a long way!
