Candy Coated Wanderer

We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.

~ Arthur O'Shaughnessy





Outfit Details: Dress: Swapped with Amber Rose of Laughing with Broken Eyes/Hat: Vintage via My Soft Parade/Cardi: Target/Socks & Shoes: UO


I don't have a whole lot to say today darlings. This past weekend really blew by me like a gail force wind. There is so much to do between now and the end of the month to prepare for our big move and to be quite honest, the whole thing actually feels quite surreal and too good to be true so much that I must beg for someone to pinch me and awake me from this dream. Anyways, enough jibber-jabber. I hope you darlings had a fabulous weekend. I felt like a jordan almond today with my choice color palette and and I quite liked that. Not that I particularly like jordan almonds...(does anybody, really?) they are just so pretty to look at. Handful of pastels, anyone?

On a side note: The dress was a swap with the beautiful and charming Miss Amber Rose of Laughing with Broken Eyes. If you haven't been acquainted with her loverly blog yet, head on over and check it out. She is a doll!

That's all for now, my eyes are getting heavy so I must be off to bed.

Much Love,


  1. Lovely photos ... I swear, as the years go by time just goes by quicker & quicker.

  22. What a perfect swap! This dress is the ideal color (in fact, the entire palette of this outfit is- I do adore pastels..) Mint green and pink are heavenly and sweet together. And that little floral pattern is so pretty and delicate.
