i received a couple of phone calls notifying me that a long time friend had passed away. he was only in his thirties. i won't get into the details, but just want to say...if you feel tangled up in any way, overwhelmed by your feelings or life in general, talk to someone. anyone. and if you know someone who seems tangled in their emotions, be a friend. be there for them. listen to them.

i retired this chain necklace a while ago because a couple of the chains were broken. the whole thing is a tangled mess, and i haven't had the patience to untangle it. well, after fussing with it for a bit, i decided that i like it better this way.
i even tangled a few more of the chains. rebel.

love the ring, but it actually arrived with a big crack
in the stone. it may have to go back.
i have no idea what this is, but it's so delicious...chocolate chips sandwiched between a chocolate crust and a citrusy layer.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about your friend, so easy to get caught up in things and not be there at time, so true to just be there. You look beautiful. It's been awhile but i wanted to say thank you for reaching out awhile back, things got crazy and needed a blogging break, but it meant a lot that you took the time to check in. You are a gem.

  2. I completely can relate to your story =( it only gets better with time. Thats the only bit of advice I can give after going through a very similar situation!

    You look beautiful as usual!

    I can't tell you how many necklaces are hidden away because they are one tangled mess...I guess I should start to unravel them since the weather's getting warmer...we'll see.

  31. I am so sorry to hear about your friend. It is definitely important for people to feel that they have someone to talk to when things get rough. Life is so unpredictable. On a lighter note, your dress is gorgeous and you look so pretty:-)

  32. i love the dress and you always amaze me with your accessories! and yes, you have to check out target for their skinnies! but i know stuff is more pricey over there (at least that's what my sis says). but you're the one who always inspires me to wear leopard! i still remember seeing you wear an awesome outfit that consisted of leopard and red!!!

  37. An old friend of mine passed away recently as well, conceding to a brain tumour at the age of 23. :( It was so devastating for me so I completely, wholeheartedly know how you must feel. I hope your heart is full of fond memories for your friend and that you cherish all the times you had together. I didn't have the chance to say goodbye to mine but I hope you had the opportunity to say yours. :)

    On a brighter note, you look absolutely stunning! The floral maxi is just the most perfect length and colour and I imagine it would be perfect for those beautifully sunny days when you just want to slip on something with absolute ease and still look effortlessly gorgeous!

    Thank you for your sweet comment! :) I love your blog and am following you now!

    Hope you'll come and pop by again. :)

  47. I am sorry to hear about your friend. That kind of news is never fun getting.

    On a happier note—if it's even appropriate—I love your rebel-ism! The chains look good all messed up together.

  48. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, that is s hard to deal with. Way too young. I get so frustruated when people won't talk to other's about how they're feeling and try to deal with it on their own and bottle it up. It doesn't work, I gaurentee you feel better after talking to someone!!
    I love this dress, you look so very gorgeous and your chains are awesome!

  49. I'm so sorry to hear about the sad news, so horrible. You look stunning in this dress and I think I've just decided to revisit some of my tangled chain necklaces.
