sometimes things speak to me.




Necklace: Nordstrom, Shirt: H&M, Blazer: Banana Republic thrifted, Jeans: f21, Shoes: Target (old).

The title probably makes me sound a little looney, but I have a feeling you creative thinkers will get me.
Sometimes things speak to me.
Like, when I'm scrolling through Pinterest I'm like "bleh" at a lot of things BUT THEN I SEE IT. Something that jumps out at me as if it has a little ring of light glowing around it. 
It also happens to me when I'm shopping at stores that have an overwhelming inventory (*Forever 21*). Sometimes I get too freaked out and have to leave, but other times things speak to me and it helps me sift through all the other stuff I don't want.

Do you know what I'm saying?

Also, if you missed my post yesterday, the CopyCat linkup will be happening on the last Friday of every month for now. So get your post ready for February 24th!

  2. I know what you mean about places like F21. Sometimes you really have to be inspired to work that hard at shopping. :)

    This outfit is great - casual, but still chic and fun! I love those shoes!

  12. I am exactly like that as well! I find a picture and become obsessed with the hair/clothing in it, and can't think about anything else. I have to replicate it asap!

  23. girl, i totally get you and have had that very thing happen many times. little golden halo is absolutely what it feels like is happening, great description! i kinda got it while catching up here and seeing your ahhhh-mazing new blog design and also the cool "copy-cat" features page. suh-weet idea! super clever and way to capture something we all do but never really have been showing the hows and whys. i LOVE it!

    it's been a long while since i last commented, although i have visited here and there to keep up with your goings on. gotta say though it has been too long since my last stop in b/c i was blown away with all the changes. it's always nice to see your pretty face and get insp from all the fashion vibes going on. cheers to it all, well done! xo ♥
