valentine dream flowers

My sweet valentine knew exactly what I wanted for Valentine's Day, which was a pile of pretty flowers to make my own arrangement with. We went to a favorite florist in Portland and I spent twenty happy minutes gathering up all kinds of pretty specimens in shades of orange, pink, cream, and blush. My favorites are those gorgeous pink tinged orchids peeking out of the center and the colorful snapdragons.

Oh, and I had a little assistant...

I had been coveting these perfect Céline sunglasses for a while now and I finally made them mine. I found them on, which has a million different styles and colors, which means that you will find yourself wish listing too many things. These photos, half of them shot in my front yard and the other half shot in downtown Portland (Maine), show the funny dichotomy in my life at the moment. Country mouse vs. city mouse.

winter palette

I was thrilled to get my hands on some fresh flowers the other day so I could play around a bit. This arrangement is the result and I love the way it looks in the moody winter light coming through the window. Although I'm way less enamored with that moody winter chill, brrrr.

cape weather

cape  vintage
dress  vintage
turtleneck  zara
gloves  vintage
boots  tretorn

Okay, it's officially freezing in Maine. But that doesn't mean I'm giving in to puffy coats and Ross Gellar sweaters just yet! I've had this amazing vintage cape (from Bohemian Bisoux Vintage if my memory is correct) for years now, and even though I hardly ever wear it I couldn't possibly let it go. The pale minty blue, the cool texture, that giant bow... I'm sure you understand. It's not terribly warm, but layered over a very warm long sleeved dress and turtleneck it does the trick.
