florida photo diary

I went instagram-WILD on my trip to Florida last week!  Between daily beach time, two art openings, a ballet class taught by my very own roommie, several delicious meals (including homemade dumplings), numerous cocktails, and an awesome gourmet pizza party, there was a lot to document.  Though I thoroughly enjoyed my time down south, all good things do come to an end and I’m happy to be home in the dry, cooler surprisingly humid weather of Providence!

Something Bowrrowed

Lately, I’ve been absolutely, inexplicably and magnetically drawn to bows of all kinds.  In my hair, on my clothes, on my shoes…everything.  Today, I’m especially loving big, boxy bows attached to bikinis, bras, sleeves and shoes.  How cute would those bowed-stilettos be with boyfriend jeans and a blazer?  Or how about a white or floral bandeau-bow-bikini top?  Hmmm, I think I feel a DIY project coming on…
