Do you know why the birds are singing?

It was a nice gloomy morning and as the clouds started to melt away and reveal the sun, I was rushed with a wave of nostalgia for LA summers. When I was a young gal, my family visited LA a lot because we lived pretty close. I remember how strange it was that it would be cloudy in the summer time. To this day, cloudy mornings that melt into warm sunny days remind me of Disneyland and Universal Studios ONLY. I can't complain about that! We have such sweet memories. Unfortunately, we didn't visit any theme parks today because they are a bit hellish in the summertime...but we did make more sweet memories. Today and every day.

I've been trying not to wear hats because I think I overdosed on them this year, but this hat always makes me feel like Anne Shirley and one could never overdose on Anne Shirley.










Wearing:

Houndstooth Swing Coat: Fancy Treehouse
Peach Blouse: Fancy Treehouse
Jeans: UO
Booties: Anthro
Bag: Anthro
Hat: Vintage
Hair Pins: c/o Kellyssima


Here's to the start of a great week. We are currently planning a cross country road trip for next week (!). Ch-ch-ch-changes. ♥

OH! We have a winner for the first giveaway from When Decades Collide! It's Victoria from Justice Pirate. Congrats!

XO Coury

  9. Such a great outfit. I'm loving how the peach lace blouse is vey feminine and counteracts the more masculine houndstooth.

    Also speaking of Anne Shirley (and no i dont think you've overdosed on hats!) have you ever travelled to P.E.I and stopped at The house of green gables? It's on a wonderful island and based on your blog/pics/writing I think you'd enjoy visiting it :)

  10. I've been having the exact same hat problem. I think I'm addicted. I have to constantly tell myself, "This outfit WILL be okay without a hat." It's a struggle.

  29. So this may be a little farfetched, but after seeing you post about the chicwish giveaway I went to their website and found a dress I desperately want for an event next week. When I came home from work and went to their site, it was down. It's been down all day. I know you have some sort of contact w/ them and I was wondering if there was anyway to contact them and find out if they'll be up and running soon? I would love to order a dress from them soon! Thank you!
