walking on moonlight in the day

walking on moonlight in the day

walking on moonlight in the day

Pretty simple, I know, but I'm not totally opposed to simple.  I should also mention this is "plane ride chic," though it could have been "everyday chic."  B's sister gave me this sweater for Christmas and I love it so much.  I've been wearing it with anything and everything.  The jewelry is from a Maasai village in Tanzania, where my grandparents went on safari earlier this year (totally envious).

chicken run

happy family

Remember I told you about the cat and the chickens?  Well a certain reader requested a photo of the cat, so I tried my damnedest, though this group wasn't entirely cooperative.  For whatever reason, the chickens freaked out whenever I tried to get near them.  B's dad said maybe they heard I like Popeye's.

I love the simplicity. I find myself straying from simple outfits since I started my blog because I feel like it is "too easy" to post online. But you've inspired me to be simpler once in a while.

I love simple to be honest! ;) Like coco chanel said: "When accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on."

daisychain said...

There is simple, which can be boring...
and then there is simple which can actually be more striking than fussy...
you've hit the latter right on the head.
