im engaged. huzzah!

Outfit Details: Dress: Forever 21// Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens

If i would have known that this was the day tom was going to propose, i would have done my best to cover up that silly bike shorts tan. We spent the day out and about Oak Glen. We got mini pies, apples, apple butter & the most amazing apple cinnamon mini doughnuts. We even got half a dozen for free. if doughnuts tasted like that all the time, i would be a larger person. Anyways, tom & i are getting married! and it shall be soon!

I have had this beloved luggage since i was around 12 or 13 years old. I was out at garage sales with my mom when i first laid eyes on it. She loved to travel & had visited russia, oregon, mexico, colorado & spent countless weekends at tom's with me. But sadly, she has experienced zipper failure & it is not treatable. She is survived by her smaller & more compact little sister.

Inspiration // Stan Getz & Lanvin 1968

screen caps by me

While waiting for tom to get ready a couple days ago, i stumbled upon this video of stan getz performing at a lanvin fashion show in 1968. That first outfit is beyond words. 
This video is full of my favorite things: bossa nova, 1960s fashion & the french.
