Bicycle Races:

There are two reasons I don't ride a bike.

Reason 1: I am frightfully clumsy.
Reason 2: I take my little boy almost everywhere I go and I would have an anxiety attack x10 if he was sitting behind me in one of those little tents.

Sometimes though, I wish I could...

Morning Moon:

Although I am a diligent blog reader, truth be told...I am an awfully lazy blogger.
I guess I am still waiting for Fall to come wash away these Summer blues so I can feel inspired again. In the meantime I will continue to watch The Secret Garden, listen to music that makes me nostalgic for an era I never lived through, and covet this Minkpink coat.

Also, I think I have shared this sentiment ad nauseam, but there are not enough hours in the day.

For your love:

I keep promising myself to scoop up a piece from The Loved One lingerie collection, but I have to admit that when I have extra money$ dresses are the first thing to pop into my shopping cart. Not only dresses, but the type more suited to frumpy little children than a full grown (over-grown as of late) human lady. A far, far, faaaaaaar cry from racy/sweet vintage inspired underpinnings such as:

BUT, when I saw this video on Loved One co-founder Hannah Metz's blog it set me right back to wanting some. The price point ($24-$62) is beyond reasonable, but until I take care of some of that over-grown business I mentioned earlier I think I will stick to dresses.

She hit pause.

There are a million things I planned on saying about these photos by Matt Schwartz, but I will refrain from ruining their dreamy other worldliness.....

I will say that they make me nostalgic for the luxury of being a daydreamer of great ingenuity.........instead of just a sleepy drone.

DC + M - pt2

Here is my second entry for a wonderful contest being put on by Dear Creatures and Moxsie. One person will get to win a piece from DC's spring collection just by styling it!

This outfit is something I really wish I would have brought along on the last trip the husband and I took up the California coast. Our goal was seeing Yo La Tengo in Big Sur, but we ended up taking some extra days to explore the surrounding cities and hike around the beautiful water falls. I searched high and low for the perfect boater to take along, but never quite found the right one.

Look 2: The Ahoy Blouse

Since I am already in full blown nostalgia mode this seems like an appropriate time to post photos from that trip which was sometime last year.....(I think?)

 If ever I were to be stuck in a Groundhog's Dayesque time warp I would hope that a day from this trip is where I would get to spend it
