Jul 3, 2011

I see your face in every flower.

So, 85% of the time I listen to jazz standards. It's quite difficult to name my posts with anything other than lyrics from these songs because that's what I'm listening to while I'm writing. I remember my family eating at Olive Garden when I was younger and how much I loved Olive Garden mostly because they played Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin while I ate. Ok, fine...I couldn't get enough of the salad and bread..you got me! Anyway, it just got me thinking about the different ways you come to realize what your interests are in life. If my family never ate at Olive Garden, when would I realize how much I love Louis Armstrong?? And furthermore, if my 6 year old sister wouldn't have bought the "Father of the Bride part 2" soundtrack, would I ever have begun my musical and sentimentally based love affair with Steve Tyrell? Life is so funny and fabulous.

Anyway, this is my outfit for today. Simple, comfy, and summer-ized.

Gabe, Birdie, and I are off on a late night road trip to my parents house for the holiday and I've got lots of floaty dresses packed for the 100 degree days. I can't be held responsible for how much homemade ice cream and corn on the cob that I eat. I just can't. ♥

  10. I hear you with the jazz music. Ella Fitzgerald is my musical hero. I do get a lot of strange looks though as a seventeen year-old obsessed with Glen Miller and Count Bassie is not exactly the norm (:

  11. I love your nails! Agreed with the classic music. Do you listen to Brenton Wood, ever? Oh my god. It's my favorite.

  31. I honestly don't think any music collection would be complete without Ella Fitzgerald or Louis Armstrong. If people don't know who they are or don't know their songs, they need to!!! Now I feel like listening to my Ella collection vinyls. Goodness! see what you did to me! ;)

  32. Oldies are the best! I adore your outfit. God, can I raid your closet? Haha you have the cutest clothes!

    Also, I just released the summer 2011 edition of my new magazine Femme and I'd appreciate if you checked it out :) You can view it for free here: http://issuu.com/bisousmonamour/docs/femmesummer11

  39. Louis Armstrong is my favorite, ever. Every summer, we ride the train down to New Orleans and I always dream about his life down there. For years, I've planned on singing "Sleepytime Down South" to my children as a lullaby. Just sayin'!!!!
