Water Wednesday

I had a wonderful Wednesday. After waking up entirely too early and running a few errands I decided to do a solo beach venture. I grabbed my thoughts, Einstein Dreams, March Vouge (I never finished reading it) and my Ipod. It was complete serenity. I had not been to the beach in far too long! I must mention that I bought a big floppy hat today. That had 85% to do with my decision to go to the beach.

I leave you with my new hat and lovely pictures of water and fashion.

This is exactly what the beach looked like today. Minus the giant foot, unfortunately. I've wanted to live in a world with giants.

I realized that I forgot to do the whole 30 days of Blogging in my last two post. Silly me. So I'm going to do 3 in one day. Are you ready? Here it goes!

Day 10 — A photo of you taken over ten years ago -
Okay, I lied. I'm only doing two because I don't feel like looking for an old picture then scanning it, then uploading it. Lets just say. I've had the same face and hair since I was 6. Exact same.

Day 11 — A photo of you taken recently-
That picture of the beach above was taken today with my crappy camera phone.

Day 12 — Whatever tickles your fancy
Chocolate ice cream. It does more than tickle my fancy. It makes my world better.

Music Monday

This entire week I've been in total love with the Arctic Monkeys. I've always liked them but I definitely forgot about them for a while until I heard they were coming to Tampa and googled them to find out they came out with a new album late in 2009... and well, I'm soooo in love with it. The music, the somewhat different more grown up sound, the amazing lyrics and ALEX FREAKING TURNER! Goddd, he is so precious! I think my heart is going to fall out of my chest with every note he'll sing. This week of cyber stalking him I came to find out that he has a girlfriend. And not just any girlfriend but ALEXA CHUNG! How cute right? Alex and Alexa.... my heart is still broken.
Here are some pictures of stylish musicians

The pants I've been waiting for

We're seeing pants everywhere aren't we? Not jeans, not stretchy stuff, not exactly harems either. Pants! And guess who finally got herself a pair? Yours truly. I found these babies at a new vintage store in my town. Its so precious! The presentation is amazingly flawless unlike so many vintage stores. Turns out this place might be hiring and I totally need a job so you bet I applied. This job would be perfect for me! So I'm crossing my fingers, sending out good vibes into the universe and contemplating killing a rabbit for its foot.... I MUST get this job.

That unusual smile surfaced from the hopes of possibly working at this place and of course from the joy of wearing these awesome pants. Those are my new shoes, Vince Camuto :]

I put this on practically in my sleep. I had to wake up too early to go see the doctor and run some errands. So I grabbed these pants that were conveniently never put away then one of the only tops I have clean (Its a floral lace somewhat see-through fabric). I remembered it was Spring and grabbed this awesome thrifted blazer. Nothing fancy and I like it.

I received this award from the very sweet and fabulous Madeline of Kiss My Sass (ha.. I love that)

I have to tag 12 bloggers! And I shall, on my next post. Right now I have to runnnnn.
Thank you for reading :]

My birthday is Monday so my awesome mother took me out today to a very delicious and authentic venezuelan breakfast in a hole in a wall restaurant. It was AHHmazing. I haven't had Venezuelan food that good outside of my grandmother's kitchen. After stuffing our faces until moving was difficult we soldiered our way through the mall. Where I found these.

My mother bought them for me as a birthday present. They are Vince Camuto and super duper comfortable. So yay, that made my birthday great.
I think its time to introduce you guys to my partner in overspending, silly moments, and great times. Mi Madre.

No she didn't have me when she was 16. She was just blessed with awesome genes. Hoping I got some of those too. Ain't she a doll? A stylish doll!

Dark Florals

This is the cardigan I just got from UO. Its super light weight and it looks good tied and untied. Sorry for the low quality pictures. Its a shame you cannot see the texture on the top I'm wearing under the cardigan. Its also a floral print but black and cream. The black part is mesh and the cream is almost a velvet texture.
This is me mixing prints, do you like?

Take a seat

I missed the sunlight today so I was unable to take a picture of my outfit :[
Butttt I do want to share with you these amazing Philippe Starck “Mademoiselle” chairs by Kartell. Anyone could look fashionable and stylish in these by merely sitting on them.

Here are two, two finger rings I found on Etsy. They are awesomee!
I must get my hands on something like this soon

Favorite Book-
Don't laugh but my favorite book is Oh The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss
The message in it is incredible and its oh so inspirational. The day I read it I was feeling very down and worried about the future and then I read this book and well, I trusted Dr.Seuss haha.
Want an adult book? 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia-Marques is my second favorite book. Its politically charged with issues in South America back in the 60's and early 1900's yet they are so relevant now. Not to mention the genre is described as magical realism. Marques speaks of abnormal surreal things in the story as if they were real. Its an amazing story. Very long but very worth it.
