slow motion.



Here's the truth: it's been a bit of a rough week. The kind of week that has you wanting to crawl under the covers and stay put for a while, that has you convincing yourself it's okay to have ice cream for every meal, or to avoid every phone call... you know the kind. But here's another truth: it's also been a week filled with underlying peace and happiness and even excitement. It's funny how change can cause all those effects at once.

Enough with being vague... it's been a while since I shared a favorite find. I picked up this vintage black dress a few weeks ago and I just really love it. Especially the subtle stripes, and the buttons and bow in the back.

Happy Friday!

  5. Changes. that along is the word to describe my life as well right now. Somehow everything seems to be changing every minute but in other ways it seems as if change is so far away and can't come soon enough. So strange how opposite things can be all at once.
    The dress is gorgeous. Especially on you.

  11. Oh I know exactly the kind of week your talking about. It's been the same emotions over here. And I say it's okay to eat the ice cream every meal if you have to.
    Love the dress, you look great in it.

  21. This is the type of vagueness that will cause your older sister to call you and make sure you are okay. What a fantastic find of a dress.

  23. Angela,
    I love how you admit to having challenging weeks and how a sweet dress can somehow make it better.
    Hope you are making time for yourself to create....and to exercise....it always helps me.
