happy together

I am unreasonably happy about the changing weather, so much so that I'm afraid my California Girl colors are all too visible. I was hanging in there for my first east coast winter, but oh man am I happy to ditch the tights. I've been squirreling away so many good summery things and finally I can take them out on the town. I can already tell this pretty striped skirt (made of the lightest silk ever) is going to see a lot of sunshine and the coat has been on my back for a week straight. Last weekend I was wearing it while wandering around a museum and a cute old lady walking by me actually grabbed my sleeve and exclaimed "Oh what a beautiful, beautiful coat!" I didn't have time to be startled by a stranger grabbing me because I could only think "I know! I'm so happy it exists!" Fashion: Bringing Kooky Strangers Together Since Forever.

THOSE SHOES! Divine! I am so so happy Spring is coming too! I moved from California to Oregon and the colder weather was a huge shock! Also I am stealing the phrase "squirreling away" because it is PERFECT *_* ♡♡♡

Yesterday all of my American friends were posting photos of themselves outside in beautiful spring weather- makes living in Paris a little depressing at the moment. I'm sooo longing to get rid of my tights and heavy layers. Lucky you!

I love that coat! It looks vintage. So glad that the weather is finally turning warmer. I love being pasty white but we all need our vitamin D at some point.


Love, Richelle from Lynn + Lou

Karen walker sunglasses are the best (mine are held together with superglue, that's how much i don't want to let them go!) and your coat is brilliant.

I LOVE when that happens! Old ladies approaching just to tell you how pretty is what you are wearing is the best compliment ever!
