Sleepy Eyes



Sundays are probably my favorite day of the week-- my boyfriend and I pretty much do the same thing every time... lunch at a crowded cafe, treasure-hunting at the flea market, soy chai lattes while people-watching, banana fritters and creme brulee ice cream, and sneaker shopping for him. I feel like I am one of those people that has to have some sort of routine, otherwise things become too maniacal for me. Must learn to be more spontaneous!

Hope everyone had a romantic weekend!

I love it when you wear these beautiful feminine dresses. I know a fair few people say they are not age appropriate, but I couldnt disagree more.

I always like your sense of fashion. But, then I think some outfits makes you way look much more matured. Too lady like, and how old r u? Only 16 or something.....wow....u look like in the 20's. Sometimes it's good, but ...

Love that dress on you. Your Sundays sound perfect and they can't be too routiney as you would always find something different at the flea market and people watching is always surprising.

That dress is beautiful on you! It's very 1940s glam, and that gold belt adds a nice touch to the outfit :)
