joggers- Zara
boots- Anthropologie
blouse- Cottonon
elephant necklace- Billabong

Alright guys, I'm just going to say it... 

...the Rug I was working on, did not work out.

So, the sad news is, I wont be sharing that "make your own rug" post, at all. But at least I  can say I tried, right?

I was so tired and disappointed on the rug, plus I had cleaned my whole house, that I proceeded to lie down on the couch. 
All I wanted to do was nap.

Regardless, this pants were the perfect choice for such day. 
Comfy doesn't even begin to describe them. I have them in two colors and they are the best ever. It's like wearing dressier pj pants.

I've always loved a good pair of loose harem style pants myself. So yes, I'm happy these jogger pants are in. What do you think?

P.S. The good news is I have an amazing husband that came home to cheer me up and drag me away from the couch. 
Nothing like ending the evening with a game night, and friends.

The canopy


scarf- gift

A few weeks ago I found this dead end road. 
Of course, as soon as I spotted this place, I knew I wanted pictures there.

It may just be my favorite spot yet, hands down.
No traffic, a beautiful canopy, a rooster calling in the distance -yes! that happened.

I got jealous of the two houses on the sides, at the end of the road. 
One of them was just being built, and I jokingly told Chris "It's our future home!!"

...One can dream right?

What a beautiful place.

Simple does it


t-shirt- Everlane
antler necklace-UO
jeans- Tilly's
boots- Asos

Finding pieces with a good fit, mostly when it comes to basics, it's a plus in my book.

In the past, I've always ended up with simple t-shirts that are too tight, too wide, too long, or too short, etc.
Well, thank you, Everlane, for a great fit, quality, length and price.

I know. What a simple outfit -what was I thinking right? 
psh not at all. I love it. 
sometimes simple does it.

P.S. Animals were not hurt in the making of that necklace...

Woman up, and do it!


boots- Anthropologie
bag- F21

You can't really tell by these pictures, nor any of my old posts for the past month, but I've been having trouble with my neck lately.
-getting older is not fun-

I finally went ahead and placed an appointment with a super awesome acupuncturist, thanks to one of my friends who recommended it, and I feel so much better.

So here, writing to you, is relieved Lizette! :D

In other news, I gotta be honest, I was so close to start working on my rug on Saturday, to finally finish it and show you, but I chickened out.
I know the design I want to paint on it, but you know -paint- Once on the fabric it wont come out, so there's no space for mistakes.

I promise I haven't forgotten about it. 
Crossing fingers I could have it ready on a post by next week! 
I just gotta woman up, and do it

Dress and long sweater vest- Ruche
boots- Anthropologie

The few winter days we got this year, weren't that cold, and I'm not quite ready to put my sweaters away-Not yet.

Yes, I'm dreading summer's arrival.

Winter and Fall will always be my favorite seasons to dress for.

So, on Friday, last week, Chris and I headed out to the movies, to watch Robocop.
Before you think it was his pick, I tell you, it was actually mine. 
I had been begging him to take me see it, and finally he did.

He was surprised that I wanted to watch that, but in my defense, I grew up seeing all the old ones, thanks to my dad.
Hence my eagerness to want to watch the remake.

I loved it, just as much as Iron man.
It was great!!!! and I seriously can't wait for a sequel! Anybody?

P.S. see how I wore this dress, before, Here

When your pictures are hassle free to edit- big hurray!
But in other not so big hurray moments (well, maybe for my heart), I need to find a workout routine that I can keep up more than 3 days. 

Ready?... set!... Go!

-I'm 26 and can't lift a thing. (even carrying a watermelon hurts my arms) 
-I go up a staircase and run out of breath halfway there. (luckily I live on the first floor.)...

...Ok, the list can go on, but I'm not sure I feel like embarrassing myself more.

I will start that workout, tomorrow. 
No more excuses.

walking around the neighborhood, counts -right? 0_o
-just kidding!
